Yes, this is a cross post:
I'm still not going to be spending any more money on setting up for burningman until I have tickets confirmation in hand. We don't have much "spare" income these days (three kids in college) and have to sacrifice other things to be able to go to burningman. I'll just plunk the money into the savings and wait. Go ahead and snark me for being uber cautious, but really, what else would I use a monkeyhut and playtech furniture for? (I can add tons of fabric dye and silk, but really i'd probably still purchase some of that and play. It is way fun)
And yes, burningman leaves you with another way at looking at life, but I felt that whole paragraph was condescending and would not make me feel any better about not being able to attend.
When the only tool you got is a hammer, every problem looks like a hippie.
Mmmmmm I love the smell of Burning Man Tokenhttp://www.dyewithdignity.com
