I dreamed I had 8 different kinds of sausage in my cooler, some campmates were grilling up some pretty bad and cheap ones so I was digging around for the good stuff and couldn't find it.

I'm not any sort of sausage connoisseur. I don't really want to get into ascribing meaning to any part of the dream.

For several days after returning to my 51 week home & would find myself half asleep during the night thinking I was still on the Playa. Kind of weird & dissapointing when I actually woke up :-(

In my dream there is just a lot of dust, my eyes are dry and my feet hurt. somewhere in the back of my buzzing mind a plea for water is acknowledged. just shifting my gaze is like stumbling my balance while lying is disturbed. my sunburn eyes protest as I look out ward into the swirling dunn. Somewhere on the other side of the canvass is where my water is, out there in the wind. I am getting up from the hammock and I think, "Can't believe it's Friday already." I can hear laughter twirling into the powdered air. My tongue pushes uselessly over dry lips, and the blast of moving dust forces my eyelids close. I make my movements based of the that last glimpse. With hand outstretched I make a quick move toward my purse. The difference of having my eyes open or not lies in the colors; tan dust orange or flesh pink and scarlet red, either way the intense light is relentless as the Wind as the Thirst as the Dust or the Desires.

I recently had a nightmare that I took a wrong turn on my way to the playa, and ended up driving for days taking more and more wrong turns. By the time I finally got there the man was burning. :shock:

I lived my nightmare when I got the playa two years back and forget all my short pants. Not a single pair. I adlibed with scissors. Last year I forgot all my footwear. I only had the sneakers I wore on the plane. I wore them the whole week and then back on the plane home.

My real true nightmare was addressed head-on several years back, when I was in Center Camp completely naked, while nearly everyone else was clothed. It's no longer a fear or a nightmare---I did it in real life! :D

So yeah had a dream last night that I was at burning man but it was being held in a GIANT baseball arena. Were you would go to get food and seating was all filled with these 10x10 garages that went back idk how far. These were built by the bmorg for us to stay in. Mine was stamped with hello kitty stamps (pretty sure they got mine and fox's mixed up lol)
So I went to what would be the field and I saw what I thought was them building the temple. To the north was the man laying on the ground yet. So I left and went walking around. When I came back and looked up I saw 2 huge discs flying in. One landed by the mans feet and the other covered the top of the arena. Some how I skipped ahead in my dream, and get on to the temple. It turn out it is the temple of bass. It was a HUGE bass speaker in the middle of the field speaker up to the sky. You could go inside and sit on the speaker and be vibrated. Meh. So the rest of the dream is spent walking around trying to find my "camp" cause I was so excited I forgot to look at my address. Run into my mom but still can't find it. Then I woke up.

Bmorg never put bm in an arena please! That was some scary shit!

I had a dream a few nights ago where I was riding around on the playa at night. What was cool was that the sound in my dream was just like it sounds on the playa at night, with the sound of pulsating bass and weird sounds from all different directions and sources, and the way that sounds distort with distance. I had forgotten how it sounded, and it was cool that my dream recreated it.

As I was listening to the sound of the playa in my dream, I started thinking that it sounded like some apocalyptic space war with huge artillery pieces on the ground firing at space ships in the distance. Then my dream morphed into a scene where I really was watching some big space guns firing at some unknown bad guys in the distance.

I dreamed last night that I showed up at camp and was horrified to find I had been assigned a tiny spot (not even big enough to fit my vehicle, let alone my tent) as far away from the main shade as possible. As I calmly talked myself down and convinced myself not to bitch about it, Doc showed up and told me it was because I had never responded to the emails asking what space I needed. I couldn't understand that so I left and went to work. I found that I had somehow switched computers with a coworker (one of our accountants) and had been getting each others emails for months without either of us realizing it.

That was weird.

I meant the switched computers thing. The playa part was exactly as I would have imagined it going. Probably with a bit more profanity than in my dream.

Sounds like you need a packing list (and to use it) :).

I had 2 dreams recently:
1. I forgot my hat. I was very unhappy about it.
2. We parked and set up a bit, then walked around to check out the area, but we were unable to find our car again. There was also some huge statue thing someone had built (like 400 feet tall), so that was cool...

Wow... Now I know we're getting close as I had a doozy last night.

I was on the plane headed to Reno when some sort of global bomb threat was called in. Literally every plane in the air had to land. And not at airports either. We landed on a highway somewhere near Chicago and were stuck in traffic along with thousands of cars and a few other planes. (For some reason, planes landing successfully on roadways is a recurring dream theme for me). I realize, along with some other passengers, that there's no way we're getting out to the event in time, so we abandon the plane and set off on foot.

That when it changes to a post-apocalyptic movie theme. Breaking into houses for supplies. We pick up a small child along the way. Roving bands of thugs are trying to stop us. I make out with one of the large thugs to create a diversion so the rest of the group can escape. And then I wake up.

Never even made it to the playa.

I have had similar dreams...

In the last dream I had, I got the dates wrong, and got there as they were breaking down center camp.

Dreamt last night that we rented an RV and had to transfer everything we needed from the truck to the RV. We started working and the pile of stuff in the truck wouldn't reduce in size regardless of how many arm loads of stuff we carried! Then, as time ticked away and frustration levels rise, my sister shows up with her baby and asks me to watch her! Because this is a dream/nightmare my evil subconscious decides to tell my sister I would 'love to' and I explained to her that we were on our way to BRC. My sister was excited for us (and herself) and says,'GREAT! You can keep her (the baby) for the WHOLE WEEK!' My dream ended with us driving toward the playa with half of our stuff and a crying baby! Aaaaaaah! I was SO THANKFUL when I woke up and realized it had only been a dream!

Just had this dream the other night. I was out with friends and we were passing many flea markets and specialty shops along a street. I kept going in and looking for anything I could use on the playa. They got tired on it, so I dumped them. I walked into a hat shop and found a wizard's cap that was 30' feet long. I tried it on and was running around thinking it was cool. Then I woke up, and the first thought I had was it was going to get caught in my bicycle chain and spokes a lot.

Dreamed the other night that it was time to go to BRC but I just wasn't feeling well :? . Anyhow after a couple days I decide to head to BRC after all.

I get there and it's over...waaaaaaa :cry: There were about 6 small trailers left and Nilasnake was the only person there and she was running around as if trying to herd cats.
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

I have this recurrent nightmare where I arrive on the playa, look in the trunk of my car and, to my horror, instead of my usual Sparkle Pony essentials (makeup, glitter, blinky cowboy hat, orange feather boa, E, mylar hot pants, bead necklaces and gold cowboy boots) I find instead a lot of crap like rebar, several gallons of water, a head lamp, lots of freeze-dried, salty and nonperishable foodstuffs, goggles, a respirator, tenting equipment, a sleeping bag, pillows, earplugs, flashlights, tons of batteries, a fucking bike with BOTH a head lamp, red rear light AND El-wire on it, sunscreen, vinegar water in a spray bottle, lots of warm AND cold weather clothing and a bunch of useful, utilitarian gifts to give to total strangers.

I bolt up in bed shaking and in a cold sweat. It's awful.

I dreamed last night that I arrived and that someone had laid the streets out wrong. Oh the correct pattern was there, but at like 1/25 scale. As in 2 o'clock was 10 feet from our village and there was no way to fit everyone.

Kind of like this:

I dreamed that everyone had to take a subway to the playa, that the playa was a huge stadium in South Africa, that the event directly followed one of the FIFA matches, and that you had to show your vuvuzela before they'd let you in to the stadium.

Yeah, "you had to show your vuvuzela before they'd let you in" sounds suggestive, but it was terrifyingly border-crossing inspectorish in my dream.

You have them regularly, sometimes they are on the playa, sometimes in a different kind of environment, but they are peculiarly Burningman Dreams.
My recurring dream is being with burners, and realizing I forgot the signs. Similar to that oh shit dream when you go to class and there's a test you haven't studied for.

Tell us about them.

Standing near the Man and suddenly I become aware that I need to get back to camp, But as I look around I see the City is a circle instead of a sector. No moon. No landmarks. No references. So I just start pick a direction and start walking towards the boiling cacophony...

The worst part is, by the time we hit 100,000 attendees, this may not be a dream. :shock:

Dreamed that the city was fenced with 3 foot white picket fencing, along all roads and dividing all camps.
The outer streets were still empty and you could see row after row of white fencing.
People started painting on them and doing all kinds of art on them.
