I had to leave Saturday morning to make it to KC in time for work. I did try to have someone drive my car to KC so I could have a friend fly me back. I even went on BMIR and put an ad out. When I was six hours from KC I got an email from the Playa Directory that someone was down to drive my car. Oh well.

You did take a photo, yeah?

I left before the man burned and didn't see the man jump in the fire. Was it something most everyone saw? How was the temple burn?

That's us!

Too bad you didn't get to stay the extra day, but work is work.

A lot of people saw it - pretty much everyone from the 12:00 side of the man. I was talking with a friend so didn't see him run in, but I saw the firefighters try to drag him out as the whole structure collapsed above. He ran in at peak fire. So they pulled back and then went back in. Horrifying.

Temple was good. We were pretty drunk as we spent the whole day chilling as home brew and listening to music at the dump. Had a cry about passed away grandparents :')

A lovely photo :)

Next year I'll make sure I can stay the whole time. I do love my job though so it wasn't too big of a bummer.

I have to wonder if that was his plan the entire time. I read in an article that he was from Switzerland and was there with his wife. Toxology said he didn't have alcohol in his system but wasn't sure about other substances.

Home sweet dump :)

I'm glad you were able to process and feel the temple in your own personal way

Love the photo; between this and tacocat's pictures below, it's always interesting to put a face to the people here.
