I know everyone is stressed -- but even before the lottery started my BF and I started to give burning man replacement ideas.. a road trip through some of the most beautiful parts of the US and Canada is our favorite so far! Some of my friends already are making plans to hit Europe too!
If everyone really can't get tickets this year we can also attempt to team up and get the large group of people to travel elsewhere! Last year plenty of small events popped up right before -- if we all teamed together we could make something awesome. Maybe even Tag Team Reno with the burner spirit. They already are used to our unusual clothes anyways
If we can't make burning man this year let's make it WATER MAN and go swimming. Or do a second burning man a few months later if the permits can be arranged... bring some extra love the cities that live off of our tourism that one time of year.
