I have been a Burner for 4 years now. This year will be my 5th Burn.
I think sparking ideas in the community will be the best way to get the event to continue to grow. I want to share my ideas and hopefully get discussion going on ways that we can expand.
I feel Burning Man has seemingly outgrown Black Rock city. We need to find a way to expand beyond the border of the Black Rock desert. I think this can be done by purchasing an island.
I imagine BMORG purchasing a desert island off the coast somewhere. We could then use that land to host our city and event.
The island should be deserted with no indigenous people. Lush plant and animal life is necessary since us Burners are used to the barren lake bed.
According to http://www.privateislandsonline.com/
there are numerous islands that are available for sale.
If necessary BMORG, couple build some permanent infrastructure like a seaport and an airport.
I think it would be essential for the growth and maintenance of the community to have as little permanent infrastructure as possible so there is room to development adapt and change and the community continues to grow.
The event could still embody leave no trace. Everything could be packed in and taken out by the participants of the event.
I think we have a large enough community that participants could develop transportation plans.
What are your thoughts?
