Take your BMW to Burning Man

I wouldn't.

Quote:
Burning Man is a week-long annual event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada. The event begins on the last Monday in August, and ends on the first Monday in September, which coincides with the American Labor Day holiday. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy on Saturday evening. The event is described as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.

I'd have to first be ready to take my body to Burning Man.

That should be against the law.

It's only a car.

Cars get damaged every day, so to say Burning Man was a big risk to the car seemed extreme. The dirt will wash off, and the wrecked front bumper is more likely from driver error.

Burning Man itself doesn't sound like my kind of fun.

The two sons of a good old friend of mine go regularly. She tells me that the dust of dried lakes like that is especially bad to breathe. Microscopic razor blades. I used to go to the Rainbow Gatherings, well, went 3 times to the national event - '81,'82, and '92 - so I can understand the appeal but I like the flavor the Rainbow Gatherings, warts and all, better than Burning Man.

In memory of Mike325xi, "Not that there is anything WRONG with that..."


That said, my buddy and his girlfriend went (he's an old fart like me) He posted some pics on FB including their Banana vehicle they made and towed down there from WA state.

He told his girlfriend "Thanks for the Burn, hon!" and I said "Oh my, you may want to see a doctor!"
I don't think his girlfriend likes me anymore.

Ive never really understood that. Sure its a replaceable object, but why not take care of it? Not sure about you, but I cant go around affording too many more BMW's, in fact, no more BMW's. Plus, I dont want a replacement, or to have to keep repainting because of neglect, I want MY BMW. The one I have now. As close to the same condition as when I bought it. Thats just me. But the answer, NO. Not if my car would have to go through that.
