30 Days of Burning Man – Day 29, The Thank Yous!
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
Tonight a simple post of a simple reminder and that is to give thanks to the people who make Burning Man happen. I’m sure I’ll forget some people I shouldn’t so feel free to remind me in the comments section. First, to the ORG, that’s right Burning Man LLC the organization that puts it all together, gets the permits, coordinates and organizes everything including suing local government when necessary.
To the men and women of the DPW, the people who build the infrastructure and stay after the burns are all done and make our presences as if it was never there, to make sure we keep our permits and can return to the desert next year. When the DPW does their annual parade donate freely and heavily.
To all the artists and volunteers, the perimeter crew, ice camp, center camp a massive thank you to the people who work Exodus!!! To all of you who create camps, activities and the insanity we revel in thank you. To the makers of art cars and the department of mutant vehicles who make sure it all works out.
To the rangers who help out and the medical tent volunteers who save us and even the cops who occasionally actually protect us, the fire volunteers who keep the city safe, thank you. To the builders of the man and the pyrotechnic maniacs who blow it up thank you.
Finally my biggest thank you to the builders of the Temple, the Temple Guardians and most of all to all of you who share your dreams, your pain and your wishes.
A thank you to anyone I’ve missed who participates and for all of you about to start driving, see you in the dust ~ ZD Blue
