I went to Burning Man and it was okay

I keep thinking of E. M. Forster and "Only Connect."

mrrranda and I were both, I think, looking to connect with people and forge new friendships, among other things that we wanted out of Burning Man that we did not find.

However, the ride to and from Burning Man in the red bus, now christened Jolly Dodger, did provide us the opportunity to connect with our new friends Ahbik, Ken, Nick, Ryan, and Sean. And the United States Potsal Service was an amazing success. And I saw a great many incredible things, and perhaps we can reconstruct some of them here in Babylon.

Nevertheless, I think in 2004 I'll ride the DALMAC with my dad, who rode this year and said it was great. It will certainly use less gasoline.
