you haven't been there. Different people get very different things out
of it. It's an excellent APRS and emcom testing ground, and I had some
technical projects going out there, but mostly I spent a week hanging
out with scientists, engineers, IT people, and artists, building and
later burning a memorial for a lost friend, and serving free drinks at
the grimiest dive bar on the planet. Also made a fair amount of ice
cream, but ran out of vanilla before I used up all of my liquid nitrogen.

cut off from the outside world, but it's fun to build gadgets
specifically for the playa. I've got a GPS map on my bike that's only
usable out there, and I have to engrave a new acrylic panel for it each
time with that year's map.
But now I have a 10-day backlog of email to answer...
