My first year I lived on my bike, because I wanted to see everything. After 08, (which if you guys remember the same way as I do was mostly unridable hippy sand traps) I took up the hoofing it method. Traversing great distances is the only obstacle I really come across, but if I want to be there I will eventually. I'm not in a rush. Two years ago I didnt bring a bike at all and was completely fine with it. Last year I brought one and only ended up using it to ride to the pottys. So this year i'm going bikeless again. Yeah there are some cool things in deep deep playa that it would be nice to ride to, but i'm fat and lazy and probably wasted, so I wouldnt make it out there anyway. Also there is an awesome freedom in not having a bike weigh you down, as a possession you need to be mindful of. If you're like me its better to wander aimlessly and not have to worry about which of these 1000 bikes in a pile outside of a soundcamp are yours, and it leaves you free to vagabond around on art cars and go where the wind takes you.
