Regionals on a lake/ocean

Postby Casanova » Thu Jul 17, 2014 12:10 pm

Has there been an official Burning Man Regional held on water, like instead of RV's people have house boats, they have Art Boats instead of Art Cars, and theme camps on the water or on the shore, kinda bringing it back to the first Burn at Baker Beach, just move more toward the water instead of land. If not do you think this would be practical? :roll:

Most people don't own boats of houseboats, and renting them, including transport, would be very expensive. I love the idea, but it would not be financially feasible for many. Most folks can access a car or bus and find a tent.

But yeah, WaterWorldMan has a lot of potential. All we got was Floating World, which was still cool.
Some sunshine, some dust, a little paint and a tutu. Yeah.

There's not an official one, but there is one - except they build their own boats. Can't remember the name of it, but it was just held a few weeks ago.

Freezerburn is held on a river, however it's not large enough for powerboats. We could have an art floaty, or art barge.. but we'd have to anchor it down. Nobody did this last year.. perhaps this is something I will try for next years event. That would be neat-o.

Burn in the forest is situated in Squamish along a large slow flowing river.. perhaps that would be another epic regional. Me thinks me gonna try that one next year too.

That'd be cool to have something like that at lake Tahoe for those of us in the Carson City/Reno area, although I doubt the TRPA would go for it.

I've heard of one in the Sacramento River delta, tons of boats converge, big one tie up to eachother and others come and go, so it's actually floating. Never been, but have heard from more than one source.

I saw pictures from that, but I seem to remember they did it only once.
