Burning Man Budget 2015 thumbnail

A week without money – the gifting culture and decommodification of Burning Man is one of the things I love most about it. Still, while nothing can be bought or sold on the actual playa, anyone who has ever made it through the gates of black rock city knows it’s not cheap to get there…

Tips for Greening Your Burn thumbnail

I’ve heard the phrase, "the playa gives you the burn you need, not the burn you want." Over the past several years I’ve been inching closer and closer towards the goal of a sustainable life. Perhaps the challenges my camp presented me with were a gift, in a way – a reminder that this is…

The Burning Man Blues thumbnail

For me, Burning Man is some parts magical and some parts frustrating and some parts blissful and some parts devastating, just like everything that regular life is – except also dusty. There is so much gushing with positivity around Burning Man that I feel almost embarrassed to admit that two years in a row, I…

Burning Man 2015

Back in 2013, I attempted to answer a question that seemed to come up a lot whenever I referenced my ten day sojourn to the Nevada desert: what the &!*# is Burning Man, anyway? In 2015, I resumed my investigation. After my first burn, I knew that I'd be back -- over and over again…

Road Trip

Take five days, three states, two girls, one Jucy camper. Add in two national parks, one state park, one historic driving route, and countless natural wonders (and a few man-made ones, too) and mix well. The resulting road trip is likely to promote extreme happiness, encourage wild wanderlust, and inspire a love of the RV…

Valley of Fire State Park

Was it here already? The last day of our all-too-short road trip though the American Southwest? We weren't ready for it to be over, but we didn't have much time to linger on that thought -- it was a three state day. We started the morning in St. George, Utah, crossed briefly back into the…

A Really JUCY Road Trip! Part I: Route 66 thumbnail

Thinking back, I'm not quite sure when the idea hatched. If I really dig around in the dark corners of my memory, I think it might have been a vague suggestion by one of us to drive to the Grand Canyon as part of our Vegas adventures. After all, we had some time to kill…
