The date of the main ticket sale has been announced as April 17 at 12:00 Pacific time. Registration for the sale is noon April 10 to noon April 12.

After going in both 2022 and 2023, I probably will skip this year. I think will be one of those burners who goes every two or three years from now on. However, you never know. If I have nothing else going on that week, and am invited back to my same camp as last year, then maybe I'll change my mind. I didn't plan to go last year, but everything seemed to fall into place for a good Burn, so I did.

As long as you have an open return schedule, and getting delayed by mud isn't an issue, why not?

I wrote a series of newsletters about them.

The main ticket sale for Burning Man 2024 is April 17. As I wrote earlier, I plan to skip BM in 2024. I am already percolating on a plan to go in 2025 with some of my hiking friends.

It will be interesting to see how competitive the Main Sale is on Wednesday. The previous two years the chances of success were about 5%. However, last year there was a surplus of privately held tickets as the event drew near. The owners had difficulty finding buyers.

The watermelon art exhibit was titled "From the River to the Sea" and aspects of it were judged to be objectionable.

So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

They opted not to change it to "From the rind to the seed."

My bad joke of the day.
There's no secret. Just know what you're talking about before you open your mouth.
