What did Burning Man look like in 1990?

Well, for starters, people were filming in Super 8! This video by Old-Skool Burner Bob G has been converted to YouTube. It is a nostalgic look at the first desert Burn, 22 years ago now. There was only one port-a-potty – bet that was a pleasant place to be by the end. The drive from Reno only took 90 minutes. It appears that none of the sparkle ponies were born yet, or perhaps the organizers had not yet cracked the code of how to get hot chicks at your party wearing next to nothing. Speaking of codes, the dress code of the day was less “post-apocalyptic survivor” and more “Walker, Texas Ranger”. At least it looks like DJ Jesus made his gig!
