I know goobster is an OG Burner from what I've read thus far, and elizabeth just recently went to one. In fact, she did a vlog on it. Let me pull up the post, there's an article somewhere from the goob himself linked about his time with Burners.

Yup. Started on the beach in SF.

Then a couple years in the desert. (Before tickets, porta-potties, rules, etc.)

Then the last decade+. Camped solo on my motorcycle. Joined a theme camp. Had my own theme camp. Ran regional events. Board member for regional org (Ignition Northwest). Became a Burning Man staff member (Arctica). And now have ... maybe ... kinda sorta ... retired.

I have a brief cameo in the movie "Spark", when they show people raising the Man the first year in the desert. As they pan down the line of people on the rope, there's a surfer dude with long hair. That's me.

Damn dude. You're a badass.

Another bass player performed, but a group from my camp The Saloon Ensemble (winners of the marching band competition), performed for Larry as they held a memorial for a friend that recently passed. I heard they were served a bomb ass three course meal.

Thanks for mentioning me! It was my first burner event and I'm hoping to make it to the real thing next year.

Of course! Hope it goes just as well.
