Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

In an effort to get into some kind of physical shape I rode my bike to work today for the first time in over a year. Better to be sore now than when I want to bike all the way across the playa to see the next thing being set on fire.

Took the pop-up trailer out for a spin this weekend and made sure it's ready for another Playa adventure. Did a few minor repairs, and changed out some kitchen supplies.

today was my big inventory check/planning day for camp kitchen
I stocked up on some 5 Hour Energy for personal use
made my (hopefully!) last costume-related purchase

Tomorrow I'm banishing myself to the basement & shackling myself to the sewing machine to finish costume projects.

In all the different years, with different themes, with different camps, and different companions... we all have those little things that are the same each time we come home. So once all the basics are done, what is it you do on your first day on-Playa each year (besides visiting The Man)? For me; o...

Layers! Since the weather can be unpredictable, I've found it very handy to plan for layering. For each day (and or night) I have a basic outfit that I love that's perfect for good weather, a few underlayers of tights, leggins, bodysuits in case it's cold, warmer accessories of warm headgear, gloves...

Re: Lighting for the Terminally Inept...

I've seen the Life Gear battery powered "glow sticks" in Target, Home Depot, and other similar places year-round. Those are the ones with the whistle on one end, white LED flashlight on the other, and the colored part in the middle that does steady-on or flash.
