Throwback Thursday #6: Burning Man 2011

Heard of Burning Man?

If you have… everything you heard is probably true. But…

You’ll never know for sure, unless you go for yourself.

Right? Right. ????

There’s nothing else like it and it was quite the experience.

I won’t get into any details here, but if you are open to new things, it might be something worth investigating.

If you’ve never heard of it you can read about it at

Below are some of the pictures I took and some video clips.

This was my first burn and the theme was Rites of Passage.

I did get a chance to make it back to the Playa in 2012, but ever since, I haven’t been able to get tickets.

This year is the third time in a row that I tried and was unsuccessful for the main sale. ????

I guess it’s okay because I did get tickets for the Eclipse and I’m really looking forward to that!

Happy Throwback Thursday!????

    Many of my students used to go there since it was so close to Oregon that they could drive. I had no idea that they now limit people with tickets. I don’t think it started out that way.

      yup you’re right and when it started it was a much smaller event. i think 2011 was the year it started to sell out every year. i believe its capped at 70k people.
