In 2015 when my college roommate couldn’t join me for the Burn, when I returned we took a cruise to Bermuda. Because the 3rd and 4th person in the cabin cost no extra, we ran an ad in Craigslist, “Free Cruise to Starving Artists.” A painter and a children’s book author worked during sea days in the library and in Bermuda, they got to have a vacation they could not otherwise afford. As a bonus, cruisers who visited the library got to see them at work.
This year I’m doing something similar. I gifted a cruise to my friend Ric and for the week we intend to live by as many of the 10 principles as we can. We’re bringing swag to give away and we intend to collect stories from cruisers.
If you want to know more, you can read my tongue-in-cheek piece here: https://brookeallen.com/2022/08/07/vacation-like-a-burner/
Before we go, I’d like to collect suggestions of things we might do that we haven’t thought of. And, we’d love to know how you have been able to incorporate the principles of Burning Man into your everyday life.
If enough of you respond, perhaps we’ll create a guide book on how to take a Burning Man vacation anywhere even if you can’t make it to BRC.
