In today's Postcard, I want to introduce you to a friend of mine and the outrageous event he attends every year.
This is my T@Bbin' buddy Jay Rogers from Illinois. He has a bit of Mad Max in him as you can see from this photo from the potluck supper at last year's Blue Ridge Rally.
For quite some time, Jay has been traveling west to Nevada's Black Rock Desert for a most unusual happening - Burning Man.
Burning Man is an annual event and a thriving year-round culture. The event takes place the week leading up to and including Labor Day. The attendees, like Jay, dedicate themselves to the spirit of community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, leaving no trace whatsoever.
I will never forget sitting in Jay's T@B one evening at the 2011 BRR and listening to his stories and seeing his photos. All I could say was it looks like Mad Max and Thunderdome. It was FASCINATING!!

Have a great Burn my friend!!
