This One Time, At Burning Man: Ambassador’s Hat

This One Time, At Burning Man: Ambassador’s Hat

This is the second installment of a weekly article on the Burner (Burning Man) culture, current events, and stories.

Burners At PlayEveryone has stories from the Playa. One week spent in the Black Rock desert leads to a lifetime of stories. When Burners get home, they can’t help but talk about and discuss their experiences at Burning Man. This post is the first audio post in an ongoing series titled This One Time, At Burning Man.

This One Time, At Burning Man will be a collection of written, audio, and video stories told by Burners from around the world.

This week’s story comes to us from a Burner named Ambassador. It’s a story about a hat, how Ambassador got his Burner name (Burning Man 2009), and some of the strange things that can happen on the Playa. Ambassador’s Hat was recorded at the Fusion Factory in Denver on a Monday night potluck gathering.

    Hey Nate… as I’ve heard this story in person at one time, it was amazingly beautiful to be able to sit here and listen to it all over again, thousands of miles away, from east Boston. Reminds me of two different homes that I miss dearly. Thanks for taking the time to record this and post this.
