    It's an annual event a few miles out in the desert from here. No I've never been, but my sister has, she came home early due to relentless dust storms. See for yourself.

    I see pictures from that event every year.
    I think if I went, I would get annoyed and leave.
    I don't get it, what's the point?:LOL:

    A really bad camping trip is all I can see.

    I am glad to hear that they try to leave no trace of their activities after they are done though.

    "They" meaning the organizers, part of their special use permit. They haul out TONS of trash and debris every year. A lot of those 'art' cars barely make it out there and some get left behind as scrap. Then the rest areas along the route get overloaded with trash, it's a mess sometimes but it brings huge revenue to our city. But yes in the end, there is no trace.
