The closer to Burning Man you get the more Burning Man people, art and creations you begin to see.
Black Rock City which is the name of the third largest city in Nevada only exists for about a week. Its way out in the middle of nowhere in a barren desert. Yet almost 100 thousand people travel all the way out there for Burning Man every year.
In Reno which is the last city before the long road through the empty desert is where almost every one stocks up in supplies. Its the best time of the year for all the businesses in the area, better than any holiday even.
They have whole shipping containers of extra supplies like water and booze cause everyone stops there on the way to BM.
When you go into the stores its always obvious who the Burners are because even before getting to Burning man they are eclectic characters.
One great thing about the desert is there are lots of nice sun sets.
Life is a journey and the ultimate creative masterpiece. Make something awesome.
