Will, you say you need to justify going to burning man.
I think if you liked Capt. Fun's book, you'll love the ultra hyper hidef version of burning man.

The visuals are amazing, but the experience is the real prize. Some of the best camps have no decoration, no flash at all. But when you leave, you always remember.
