30 Days of Burning Man, Day 19 Transition

This year there is a possibility that there will be a much higher percentage of newbies heading to the desert so I thought I’d spend the 30 days before the gates open throwing out some information, some images and a little bit of wisdom, advice and snark about the place I love so much. These posts will be generally directed at Burning Man virgins but hopefully some of you old dogs out there will contribute through comments or get some enjoyment out of them as well. So here we go.  .  I’ll include at least one photo from Burning Man each day and once a week I’ll do nothing but photos.  I hope the posts are sometimes helpful and also enjoyable, enjoy ~ ZD Blue

Ok, a bit low energy tonight so just a quick post and a couple of images, enjoy  ~ ZD Blue

 So a little advice on heading in and out of the playa for those of you who haven’t done this before.  You see there is a reason we differentiate between home and the default world, they really are drastically different.  Many people feel a little post-playa depression, and some of that has to do with the gear shift.  So my solution has always been to spend a night in Reno on the way in and the way out.  There are some advantages to this, first off Reno is not quite the default world so it gives you some transition space and time before the default world.  It’s also cheap and close to the Playa which on the way out significantly reduces your time to your first large meal and hot shower.  Let’s be clear, I shower on the Playa, some years I’ve showered damn near everyday, but no camp shower will every replace the joy of a hot pressurized shower in an air-conditioned room after a week in the dust.  Yeah, I know, kind of the absolute opposite of what you are living out there, but what can I say, I’m not perfect.  Just a thought, I’m sure others have opinions would love to hear them.
