To our Burners:

Burning Man 2009 is almost here and we can feel the electricity and creativity in the air at Uncle Sam's Army Navy Outfitters. We have outfitted so many participants for this event (both for goods needed to survive and crazy and unique items to be used as costumes or part of the camp theme.) Through the years we have listened and learned what people need and what works well to survive in the vast climate variations of Black Rock.

We'd like to offer our Burner friends a special coupon for an extra 10% off our already low prices. When you check out, please use coupon # 92009 for this additional savings.

In addition, please join our blog and post your ideas and comments about Burning Man and share information about your camp. So many people that shop in our store meet other participants and share information, rides, or join camps.

Remember : “SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST!”

What Is Burning Man?
Once a year, tens of thousands of participants gather to create Black Rock City in Nevada's Black Rock Desert, dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, having left no trace whatsoever. Learn more about this incredible experience, and read our mission statement and the Ten Principles .

2009 Art Theme: "Evolution"
Nature never made a plan, nor does it seem to copy very well. No living thing is ever quite the same as others of its kind. Charles Darwin called this Natural Variation. There is a kind of subtle chaos, a supple element of chance and change, residing at the core of living things. Our theme this year prompts three related questions: What are we as human beings, where have we come from, and how may we adapt to meet an ever-changing world?
