We have recently met some friends and they have been to Burning Man. They said that we have just got to go, it is totally us. We have talked about going but I guess the whole drugish party crowd made us feel like it wouldn't be for us. Plus the roughing it in the desert with the sand storms and the wheelchair thing. Anyways, they had a blast. They aren't total partiers and want us to go with them this next summer. They have informed us that basically you pick the areas of wildness you want to be around and it is not all the bad crazy hype that the media picks to show you. It is a week in the desert outside of Reno filled with funky art, free love, dirt, sex, fashion shows of weirdness, of course the burn of Burning Man and so on.We would rent a motor home and need to figure out the rest of the details. It's all very intriguing, but still contemplating. There are several different facets to this vacation that I'm not sure of.
1. We wanted a sexually charged vacation and not sure how we could pull that off with the new friends around. Would like to be nude and frolic, and that's perfectly acceptable at Burning man...but we just never have brought any of this stuff up to people we know.
2. Not sure I want to basically camp and cook and be dirty for my vacation.
3. Would love to be apart of something like this with people that have been and know the ropes.
4. I love the idea because it is "us" to do something of this sort that is not just the avarage thing being done.
Our other choice this summer was something we've been planning on doing and that is to go to Desire in Mexico. It is a clothing optional/ swinger type resort. (No, we don't swing). We had such a good time this past summer at a place similar in the So. Cal. desert for our first time. It is way more luxury than Burning Man and we could just be ourselves sexually. No cooking or being dirty. Also though..... no funky weirdness that I adore.
Burning Man would be a way easier to tell the family we were going to. I have been trying to figure out how or where we would tell them we were if we went to Mexico. They always want to know where we are staying. It's a safety thing and my mom is getting older. In Mexico I would want someone to know where abouts we were in case some bad thing happened.
