Drex's Road Diary: Burning Man 2016

2016 was my tenth Burning Man! I decided to commemorate the occasion by showing you guys just a little bit of the experience that I had out on Playa, including some great info on my camp, footage from Center Camp, the awesome fire circles that happened throughout the week at the sound camps, Burn Night, and much more!

Plus my favorite 2016 memory: flying above Black Rock City in a plane! :D

How to Travel with Fire Props

Fire festival season is officially in swing so I thought I’d share with you what I’ve learned about something that pops up a lot as we’re going from place to place--and that’s how best to fly with your fire props.

When am I ready to spin fire?

You’ve seen those rock stars out on the burn field, dancing with fire like they were born to it. You’ve gotten ahold of your own tool and you’ve had your first lesson--now the important question: when are you ready to spin fire?
