Burning man - the wildest festival in the world

Every year in the Black Rock Desert (Nevada, USA) a temporary city is built. It is called Black Rock City, the city where the Burning Man Event is held.

A lot of festivals are held almost all year round. However, this event is more than just a festival. You might be surprised to learn that it lasts for 9 days only. Once Burning Man is finished, there's no trace of this city in the desert. The main principles of this event are: self-expression, mutual help, responsibility and leaving no trace. Burning man is unique in all respects and impresses with its organization, themes, traditions and art objects. By the way, if you admire unusual forms of modern art it'll be also interesting for you to read about the amazing lemon festival about the amazing lemon festival on the French Riviera.

Dave Woodward, I've stopped in Fernley a bunch of times, but back then, near the Interstate, it was mainly lots of gas stations, and not a good place to be if they were out of gas!!!! I used to say Fernley was my Bermuda Triangle of Road travel... Ha Ha!!

We live in Fernley, Nevada which is not that far from where Burning Man is held. Every day of the festival there are vehicles of all shapes and sizes driving down here to shop for food and mainly water. We usually go shopping late in the evening because Walmart's and Raley's are jam packed with festival participants. Anyone wanting to go, remember it does get very hot up there.

Sounds interesting but I think you need to be young and hardy to be in that climate.
