The desert is a place worlds away from that to which most of us are accustomed, and is governed by physical laws that cannot be ignored. You are responsible for your own survival, safety, and comfort. Read the Burning Man 2013 Survival Guide carefully and make sure EVERYONE in your group reads it as well.

In addition to the Survival Guide, there is a vast amount of information on this site to help you prepare for special circumstances that affect your experience at Burning Man. We strongly suggest that you read the information in the Recommended Reading and Health and Safety sections to help you plan according to your own individual needs.
