Maybe some outside yard pick up would be good??

Apparently, our house from the outside looks like it could be the Burning Man youth Hostel. Last night I saw a car circling around outside our house and I just had a feeling the guy was not only lost but a burner because he had a few bikes on the back of his Honda and his backseat was loaded up with rubbermaid tubs of camping stuff. So being a good neighbor I went over  to ask,before I could say anything, with a smile on his face like he was happy to arrived he said, "Is this the Burning Man place?" TO which I replied "Um no, that would be down the street a few houses on your right" He seemed disappointed. 
I began to wonder why he would think our house was the place he was looking for and quickly realized, hmm....
Could it be that there are a few VW's outside or that we have a tree house with pirate decor or that we have a lot of bikes all over our lawn? I could see why he would be confused and in my defense it was dark.
At any rate our friends Jason and Tasha stopped by Monday night on their way out and said that we should at least drive out there one of the nights to see all the lights. Maybe we will inch our way over, maybe not. I hope they have a great time.
I have talked about this topic a lot on here. To go or not to go? Here are my final thoughts, if there was a way that we could go see all the amazing art work without all the debauchery, drug use, naked people, free loaders, pagan rituals, etc... going on then it would be a no brainer. I love art work that is obvious, but sometimes the artists are scary and I don't really want to spend a week in the desert with them. The jury is still out on this one but once again this year, I was not sad that we were NOT going.

It was probably the multiple bikes you had in your yard ;). It's intriguing to us as well, but it seems to look at art you have to face so much other stuff.

Ha ha! So on Sunday evening I was with my parents and we saw a snail-shaped burning man vehicle... My mom thought it was cute because she didn't realize what it was. When I told her, she asked me what they do at burning man... Imagine having that conversation with your mom... :)

I was in Fernley today and saw a billboard in front of the First Baptist Church that read . . .

"Hell . . . The ultimate Burning Man!"

That really cracked me up . . . Church marketing at its finest . . . Turn or burn you Burning Man Bastards . . . Oh, and Jesus loves you . . .

erica- i am sure it had more to do with the bikes than anything else, still it did make me think maybe we should get rid of a few vw's or something.
jeni- wow, sorry. really she didn't know what it was about? after all these years of living so close to this big event it is surprising to me how many locals still have no idea really what goes on out there.
tim- yes, this is what everyone thinks about hell that it would be one big party with all their friends so really this church was not doing the kingdom any favors. now all the peeps are like, "sweet, i wanna go to hell"

ok, so my first thought on the guy circling your house...it's inviting...and if it was the first time for him, he would have had no idea what he was looking for...i'm sure you've would have been terrific hosts!
for sure the two of you would have added that missing something that we've now lacked for two years...any ideas brewing in that head of yours mo for the next bm art display...they for sure need some new talent out there!
and we're planning a camping trip out there for the 4th...4th of juplaya, up for that?
