“Always Secure Your Valuables in the Desert.”
Model: Dee Luvbight, Location: Burning Man 2004
The wind storms and the dust devils at Burning Man are notoriously fierce; the best way to secure something to the playa is a 2’ piece of rebar bent at the top.
The cyclists never batted an eye at this scene, merely shouting approval as they rode by.
But when we were setting up, it was a different story. We rode our bikes out to a fairly empty spot. Dee laid down on the ground, and within 60 seconds no fewer than three people rode up from different directions making sure she was okay. You see, heat is such an issue that going horizontal is a warning sign, but being chained naked, gagged and blindfolded is de rigeur.
Just another day out on the playa.
