Regional

Regional, –adjective

An event (Regional Burn), group or organization created by Burners somewhere other than the Black Rock Desert. Burning Man has made efforts to control who can officially call themselves a regional representative, or which events are official regional burns, but no one pays them any attention. Regional Burns allow you to meet the same person more than once without a GPS unit and a tracking device, and may feature such luxuries as swimming holes, natural shade, or even actual showers. Someone who is Burnier-than-thou will tell you this adulterates the valuable, character-giving experience of sleeping on the cement-hard playa in the dust after the 50-mile per hour winds obliterate your tent.
