Lone Meow Wolf

I'm contemplating driving from Denver to Santa Fe in a few weeks to check out Meow Wolf by myself (as part of an extended Artist's Date/Artist's Way weekend, if it matters). Will I regret not going with my husband or someone I know? I feel silly asking this question, as I am perfectly capable of having a good time on my own, but I wonder how much of it is about experiencing/discussing/absorbing it WITH someone else?

I am the tourist who knocks!

I'm in Albuquerque next week for training M-T during the day, and have the evenings available. I'd love to do some Breaking Bad-related wanderings/touring/etc, but formal tours seem to be during the day, and I'm OK with doing things by myself. [more inside]

Green Tortoise to Burning Man

Attending Burning Man was been on my bucket list for decades - mostly for the epic scale of the art, and the experience of creating a city in the wilderness - but the logistics & cost of trying to organize a trip form Hawai`i have always deterred me. Next year I'm thinking of foregoing "radical self reliance" in favor of letting Green Tortoise take care of the basics. I do, however, have a few reservations, and I was wondering if people here had any experiences they could share. [more inside]
