Burning Man: A boondocker’s rally

SF Gate did a story on the construction of the Burning Man that describes the carpentry and gives some idea of the philosophical bent of the event.

This will be the 20th anniversary of the Burning Man festival. It is a week long rally of something like 30,000 participants needing a $5 million budget. It is held on the playa on Labor Day weekend with no facilities whatsoever. When everyone leaves the playa is usually cleaner and more pristine than when the event started.

For those into the counter culture ethos, or the wanna-be’s, this is an event to attend. For everyone with an interest in rallies and events, though, it is a case study with many lessons to be learned.
