In a week, I'm going to be at Burning Man! Apparently it is full of insects this year. Not good. I thought the one benefit of going to a harsh desert environment that's inimical to all forms of life would be it's, you know, inimicalness to pestilential life. But no luck. Apparently it's been a wet year and the insects are breeding.
It's my first time. I imagine I'll be extremely uncomfortable. I get headaches from even mild physical discomfort, so I'm not sure what will happen during ten days of intense heat and cold and high altitude. Sometimes I, a little bit, regret that I'm doing this, but I really can't start bailing out on things just because I'm afraid that I might be uncomfortable. Anyway, there will be no posts (or any communication from me at all) from August 28th to September 7th.
Good luck. Already looking forward to your take on the experience.
