BurningMan FieldTrip

To All Home Schoolers ~

BurningMan is an annual event that many residents view as an artistic adventure into the wilderness. Whether you see BurningMan as interesting or strange, this event is more than your usual festival ~ it's a community called Black Rock City that artistically thrives & blossoms for one full week with over 50,000 people attending this year. The playa offers a wide variety of artworks dedicated to community & self-expression. This opportunity to experience Black Rock City for yourself is a wonderful artistic endeavor. After multiple conversations with BurningMan associate, Ray Allen, we will be allowed a one-day (Thursday, August 30, 2012) credential for 20 guests to cover entry fees & an age appropriate tour designed especially for our homeschooling group. Of course, this may not be an exclusive tour but his request for knowing our children's ages makes me know that he has our best interest in mind. However, please note that some nudity may be noticeable. I am not responsible for supervising underage children who might view nude structures &/or any accepted nudity. You can see information & links at

I'm proposing a call to action to check out one of Nevada's rarest experiences. Approximately, the roundtrip will be 240 total miles which means we would need to be on the road in the early morning hours to beat the heat & traffic on the highway as well as getting into Black Rock City. Parking is an issue for tour guests as most of the spaces will be for campers. I am negotiating for a mini-bus shuttle to drive for a total cost of $52 roundtrip per person. This is a first come / first serve basis due to the limited tour spaces available ( Only 20 ). If this event receives a huge response, I can provide contact info for anyone wanting to coordinate a separate trip. Also, water is a must (a gallon per person for the day as suggested on B-man website), sunscreen, glasses, hats, & bring your own lunch. We will meet at McDonald's (Exit 21) @ I-80 & Vista with time TBA as soon as we reach the first 20 paid guests. 

Please contact me for payment information by Monday, July 30, 2012.

Note: Exit 21 meeting time will be in the early morning hours (approximately 6:00am) with BurningMan tour time TBA.
