Bust a move burnt man


Reporting back on the events of burning man nieghbors. Apparently, this caravan commune is something we have to look forward to every year in our neighborhood. The RV's keep coming and let me tell ya it is some good fun, people watchin.

Today some people dropped off a young man right in front of our house. He had about 4 very full bags, one with the willey coyote peekin out of it, bright taxi yellow hair with a small red patch in the front and a grin that wouldn't quit. As I smiled at the whole enterage he said "This is light packin" hmmm... my giant didn't even pack that much to go to a foreign country. Whateva!!

So, I think they move the RV's periodically throughout the day and our neighbors backyard must be first come, first serve. It's quite full . The outside of his house has couches for lawn furniture and signs directing all the traffic.
When I took my kids for a walk the other day they were all very friendly. They keep coming and I am wondering how many more can fit down our street. At night the ones not directly parked outside his house move to the local shopping parking lots . I guess they either are trying to be considerate of us or they don't want the ticket.
I no longer think I need to go to this event, not that I thought I needed to before but now every year I have the priveledge of burning man people coming to me.
If any of you are up for some good people watchin you should come check it out. I am thinking the caravan to the big shin-dig should be any day now cause it looks like they have quite a few cities to build and inventions to set up. Don't know what we will do when they are gone. Guess we will just have to go back to watchin regular ol' tv. BORING!!

I think you should set up a garden scarecrow, light it on fire, and hold your own Burning Man Junior.

Wow, I appreciate how you look on the bright side by enjoying the people watching aspects. I think this would drive me crazy.

We had a hard time finding a truck to rent so that I could move because the rental companies didn't want to rent to locals. The explanation: apparently locals like to rent u-hauls or the like and take them to Burning Man and camp out in them...

noel said...

i guess they are everywhere!!!

thoughts of a b-man freak-
"i can't wait to get naked, paint my body blue, dye my hair bright pink, put on a gas mask, get loaded, go out to the desert and dance around a flaming statue at night."

yeah, i hear you can have fun at burning man without doing drugs.

Noel, in the newest "Reno News & Review" there is 8 pages dedicated to the b-man event...1 page is just a list of the essentials you will need while attending.

I did not see anything about blue paint, pink hair dye, or gas masks. However these are things that every good b-man participant keeps around the house...LOL

noel said...

sound the all clear they have left the neighborhood...at least for now.

The DJ from my wedding told us during one of our conversations that he loved the burning man. He thinks that the art & creativity that happen there is exciting. He also loves the drum circles that take place. I guess I wasnt surprised. He met his wife in a drum circle. Kinda Beavis & buttheadish if you ask me.

noel said...

murdoc-was that the infamous Billy Allen?? Did you happen to ask if that was wife #1,2,or...jus kiddin
When Mo found out i hired him for our wedding ...well...lets just say he wasn't happy.

Jeni said...

The other day at work, I had some guy come up to me and ask, "Do you know anything about this Flaming Man thing?" You KNOW he was from out of town...

noel said...
