The week before Labor Day saw a contingent of houseboaters attending Burning Man in the Nevada Black Rock Desert. Included were Laurie and Dusan Mills, Malia and Ted Rudolf, Jarl Forsman, Steve Sekhon, Rusty Hendley, Tony Williams, Ashley Brown and Ricardo Castro, and Ashley’s frequent houseguest, their son’s Pawpaw, Tim Brown from Nashville, Tennessee. Other folks in the encampment, named Camp Gratitude, were Bill Johnson and two Australian visitors, Gilbert George and Janet Court. The weather was in the 80s with only one day especially dusty. The art at Burning Man was awe-inspiring and a good time was had by all.
