It looked pretty cool, and the rest is history.

10 or 12 years ago a friend of a friend from SF was in town, I lived in Iowa, and in conversation told me about this thing in the desert. I've always been attracted to the desert, so I paid attention. Sounded very cool. Unfortunately, I didn't know anyone else who even knew about it, let alone want to go 2000 miles to camp in the desert, so it just stuck there. Then, I came to Oregon. It's only 200 miles to the playa. I met an 8 time Burner who said I should go, in his camp-- the rest is, as they have said, history. Life has never been the same. It wasn't exactly my first rodeo, but I knew I was Home.
