It`s really easy to be a "participant" versus a "spectator" at BurningMan.
With a little imagination, you can dream up and execute some fabulous things to share with the community. Some people use tremendous resources and effort, and bring some unbelievable and huge things to the desert. I really enjoy all the zany stuff out there, but some of my favorite moments have been spent with the more local-low level fun that can be had all over the city. It`s really easy to share the simplest pleasures and have a real GAS doing it.
I thought I would start a thread to list some of your favorite paticipants at Burning Man.
One of the funnest things I saw last year (simplicity itself) was a guy dressed up in a purple Rhino-suit who would "finger-wrestle" other participants, ..and his girlfriend-wife-friend-sister-whatever.. would issue challenges, manage the crowd, referee...etc....It Was Hilarious!!! They drew a huge crowd, and it was so much fun to watch AND paticipate in.
Every once in a while he`d get pooped and take a little breather, while some other "Champion" took center stage for a while....I really loved it, and it was alot less blood than you`ll find at the thunderdome, but in my view...just as exciting.
Please feel free to list some of your favorites:
