To look at all the good burner culture has done in the bay area. They have their own collective in San Francisco called Infinite Kaos, a lot of us who were camped out at 10:00 do burning man type stuff year round, Fal$e Profit ( monkey versus robot ) Trance village ( online community list called community trance) And my camp ( Opulent temple of Kaos) I am sure if you do some digging you will find simalar groups in LA, or you can start your own. Or Join us up here! Also check out laughingsquid.com
I took the road less traveled, and now I would like to go back and find the paved one.
