Dry running is entirely permissible and highly advised.

I was asked to go to Burning Man 1, 2, 3 and 4. By the time it was a thing I was so sick to death of PLUR ravers that there was no f'n way I'd go. I hear it's great fun. Enjoy it doubly for me.

There's definitely constant tension between the ravers whose burn is about EDM and who complain about an overload of "yoga and TED talks" on the schedule and the ... well, the people I like more than ravers, who go to yoga and TED talks.

EDIT: I should clarify that this tension is during the rest of the year, because burners like to complain! Not so much tension in Black Rock City.

And I'm back after a brief Google adventure learning what PLUR is. This is my first burn and we are apparently near the sound camps, so I'm hoping there won't be raver kid overload. I like adventure though and good or bad , it's definitely going to be a unique expirience.

like in Default, you experience what you seek/expose yourself to. It's entirely possible to never interact with the raver kids, sparkle ponies, spectators and silicon valley bros ... or harass them with a megaphone.

Our camp got placed out on K somewhere between 7-8
