Greetings

I am about to embark on an amazing adventure... Afrika Burns: an offshoot of Burning Man... and I am wondering if there are any mama's or papa's out there who have gone to a Burning Man before?

For those who don't know, here are some informative links:

http://www.burningman.com/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burning_Man

http://www.zpub.com/burn/bm-history.html

Thanks in advance

There was a tribe of B'ingM mamas in FYT some weeks ago ...



I've wondered about this. Am a relative of the Rainbow Family and am seeing this as kind of a riff on it, with B'ingM being for those who are a little less "crunchy" and a little more "noisy."



Along with the things-for-sale stuff there ...




But then again, I've never been, so what do I know.







'K, B'ingM mamas, go ahead, I can take it. :

I love how you avoided shortening it to "BM"

Another wannabe....some good friends of mine have been several times. I've seen the pictures and heard the stories, and really want to go! But not until dd is a little older.
