From the folks over at Gawker, a time-lapse video of Burning Man from set-up to MOOP removal:

I thought I’d had enough, but now I want to go again next year.

Here are two very fine collections of photos from Burning Man (not taken by me):

Also, Time Magazine has included Burning Man in its book Great Places of History: Civilization’s 100 Most Important Sites.

Map of route

October 3, 2011 Leave a comment

I decided to include a map of the route I took. Direction of travel was counter-clockwise. The numbered yellow boxes are not (necessarily) stops I made. They’re waypoints I had to create in Microsoft Streets & Trips to force the route to go exactly where I wanted, rather than leave the decision to the software. Unfortunately, there’s no way to hide them at this magnification, so we just have to deal with the clutter they create.
