ATTENTION ALL EXITERS
It's an exciting time as we approach another year of the Exodus program (the coordination of 30,000 people leaving Burning Man on a single,
two-lane road). The Exodus team is responsible for ensuring a safe and
timely trip out of Black Rock as well as giving all our beloved citizens
their final farewell for the year. It's truly a special feeling to see
every smiling face leaving Black Rock and screaming from the windows of
their vehicles "SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!".
Before Exodus was implemented, leaving Burning Man during peak traffic time could
take four to six hours. Over the course of several years the Exodus plan
has been improved to the point where the maximum wait was less than an
This year we hope to continue this trend, and focus on building the
Exodus team and community. We can build it together, fashion it in our
own collective image to fit the terrain of our hearts and bind us to the
larger Burning Man community. Exodus needs all the spirit and craftiness
of the Greeters, the scavenging skills of the DPW, the humor and hard
core of the Gate, etc. (We are not anti-greeters, we are shepherds of
the desert community, directing the tired, glowing and sated souls back
out into the world).
You are invited to pitch in and help make Exodus 2003 a true participant
event. We need leaders, imaginative thinkers, shift supervisors,
flaggers, people to set up and tear down, people to help guide the flow,
and anyone who calls Burning Man "home".
Be a part of Exodus. We have many jobs that need to be filled and there
is lots of fun to be had!
