Where's Waldo? And How Did He Get Tickets to Burning Man?!

by Blake Cronyn March 23, 2016

Have you found him yet? He's right there... Right in the...  Okay, confession, he's not actually in the picture. He didn't read this article on "How To Buy Burning Man Tickets," so he missed on an experience of a life time!

 (When travelling, YES needs to be your default answer)

Right before I jumped out of the plane, she asked, "Are you ready for this?" ...f*** no I screamed mid-backflip as I fell the first 6 ft. of 14,000. Gosh, I was so young and naive, how did I not know that No and Yes means Yes on vacation!?
