    1. Burning Man is NOT a bucket list to do. Its a an experimental experiential event which may or may not be fore everyone. To promote it as a Bucket List to do undermines the the 10 principles which ultimately affects the overall culture and experience that is The BURN.

      1. Thanks for your opinion! I think the great thing about bucket lists is that they are personal — everyone creates their own. It’s not on my bucket list, for example, but I certainly think it’s a good one to consider adding on, if it fits with an individual’s way of thinking.

  1. Hey there! Long time to chat.

    I totally agree. BM is most definitely the experience of a life time.

    And yes, I am going this year. I used this packing list as my own guide and as I write this, I’m sitting in Atlanta airport waiting for my flight to SFO to board.

    Cannot wait! Except I also enjoy the suspense.

    Maybe we’ll meet there one day?

    1. Hi Ernesto!

      Have an amazing time at the burn. I hear it’s going to be extremely dusty and windy this year. Which means, don’t forget your rebar stakes to keep down your tent. Never leave anything out. And bring water, cups, goggles and face mask with you whenever you leave camp.

      It will make for some fantastic adventures.

    1. I’m glad to hear that, Anya. It’s a pretty tried and true list. It’s taken me very comfortably through three Burning Men. Have an amazing time!

  2. I’ve been looking around for items to pack and things to bring to Burning Man 2016 (first time Burner here), thanks for this, its really useful. I did find one site that seems to be selling fairly useful looking kits with various items that look quite useful – http://bumakits.com

    1. Hey Darren,

      There are plenty other things you can pack. The list can be endless, but I wanted to focus on the things that will protect you, comfort you, feed you and make sure you have what you need plus some extras.

      Have a great burn!

  3. The backpack is the most interesting part in travel.I always make a list for my traveling. Burning Man place is very difficult to place to another. But my much interesting to go there. Thanks for your backpacking tips.

  4. Wow! This is a very interesting article! I’m not sure if I’m ready for the Burning Man adventure yet, but it’s still fun and nice to read your post. Besides golf, I love traveling and experiencing. So your post did grab my attention. You must be a thoughtful and experienced person to write such a detailed post. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Thanks Leigh! Just asking my things and wanted to look at another list to make sure I wasn’t forgetting anything, great list.
    Also this year (2022) there won’t be coffee at center camp, I believe.
    Also also, my friends already on site said its crazy windy so far, so bring your goggles!
