Back when I got extremely drunk with a high ranking member of BMIR’s leadership team, I was specifically asked to prepare a PSA about how to handle traffic at Burning Man.

The first thing I learned is: Don’t drink and write a PSA. They’ll just accuse you of setting a bad example. But goddammit, I don’t have a problem, the Interstate Highway System has a problem! Have you seen how crooked those roads are? There’s only one way to cross a mountain, and that’s to go through it!

For the rest of my tips about how to handle traffic at Burning Man, listen below:

Enjoy! And if there’s a topic you’d like me to produce a PSA for, drop me a line. Or actually don’t. It’s pretty close to Burning Man and I haven’t done any preparation yet. Do you think I’ll need a tent?

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam
    comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or
    anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
