@AlchoPwn - how's it going? I hope you're all having a (pleasant, metaphorical) blast!
It was a complete waste of time. I got into Vegas on the afternoon of the 19th and took in a show, which was probably the highlight of my trip. Then I gambled a little, and caroused in a bar, and recruited some road trippers for the following day. We all got up bright and early and drove out to be disappointed by the pathetic turn out, so we went to the rave, which was also pretty miserable, so I had to apologise to my recruits and drive everyone back. Because I thought I was potentially going to get arrested, I had left stuff in a pay locker, and I had to book a room and a flight that night, and while the room was easy I didn't get a flight until today. I got home about 2 hours ago. A disappointing and forgettable business.

Awww. Glad to see you're still in one piece.

I am less glad. I thought at very least the desert rave Alienpalooza was going to be a bit of a Burning Man, but one of a kind, event, but it didn't measure up. I went up to the fence at least, and frankly, there were only about 20 goons. I am half of a mind that even 2000 people could have rushed it effectively. I am grumpy cat, and not dead enough for my liking.

Having a nice cup of tea and a sit-down.

Well I was hoping for better stories, but you would no doubt be much the worse for wear so it's just as well I suppose.

Maybe next year. You know Burning Man started out as a party and a bonfire on the beach. You can claim to be one of the founders if it really takes off, though the guy who pissed on the gate might have the best bragging rights.

So now I'm an Alienpalooza pioneer? Perhaps the weekend wasn't a total waste (LOL, as if).

*Sigh* well, I suppose if they hold a rave there every year, they might eventually get the numbers up to the point where they can try in earnest.
