Then, as one collects subsequent Burns and friends, and have seen a Man burn a number of times it does become a little more "I just spent X number of hours just drinking and socializing with some of the Finest People Alive, and it was an excellent use of my day. Maybe we'll go watch something Burn too, at some point." Though not always.

I dont see my camp members but once a year, so just hanging with them is a big priority. Plus we repair bikes and that alone requires most of us to stay in camp.

BRC is never the same, year to year, and neither are you. Prepare to be unprepared for how YOU will react to it. I have been aware that BRC changed me from the moment I entered that first Monday dawn. And it's continued to knock me around through these years. But I was truly unprepared for the beautiful, esoteric and transcendental change it offered me this year. I knew I was a Burner before, but boy...

Captain Goddammit wrote:I've done the burn many different ways... I've been with big camps, BRC Post Office, Black Rock Spatial Delivery, Johnny @ the Playa Cruizers... I lived on Center Camp ring road, or right on the Esplanade, and been really in the middle of things.
I've also just pulled up on the outer edge about 4:30, on the outside of the outermost street and called it home.
I've worked all day fixing bikes, and I've slept all day. Some burns I did pretty much nothing but cruise my M/V all over the place.
I've gone by myself, I've gone with girlfriends, I've gone with a crowd of friends.
Which was best? All of them!!
So I say, the right way to burn is just GET THERE!
