It sounds like an interesting experience. I would like to see what it is all about in person, mostly from a writing and photography standpoint.
UPDATE: I managed to get tickets this March. It looks like I am bound this September after all.
UPDATE: I stayed a very long 11 days from late August to early September. It was among one of the strangest, willdest, most entertaining experiences that I have had in a long while. In fact, I am still picking the dirt out of things.
