Hundred twenty mile around trip.. But leather spats.. No they are not gaters.. No they are not leggings.. They come off a black opes from the field.. Dust and scuffs and all.. Now off to the store for some bachelor buttons. (for the punk of it)

My sister and I got the dome struts and cover out of storage and brought them to the house in prep for packing.

Picked up a 5 pack of work gloves.

Found the perfect birgin Playa-wear leather and fur jacket at a garage sale for $2! Now I just need to deck it out. Also invited my childhood best friend to join my adulthood best friend and I at BM this year. Couldn't think of two better people to spend a week in surreality with! Hope she can make it!

Yup, I have a place on my back patio where BM stuff is starting to collect as well.

It's all over my dinning room table of the small crap left to pack. The duffel bags with close are all over the bedroom. Ugggg to tired!!! Need to get some item of burning prep done tonight. It keeps looking at me calling me a asshole for just slacking off. Had no idea how hard a first year camp would be to someone who like arts and crafts and decorating a bit to much! Oh we need those pillows they would look great on the couch!!

Wait that was Tom.

Dug around and found the battery operated shower and solar shower bag.
Put some fresh batteries in the shower pump and it started working...YAY!
It was one of the few things I saved after the flood we had here last summer.

I'm working on art prep for Element 11 in two days, but it is a regional, so all good. Yikes, so much to do.

I'm trying not to but.......Tatonka AND Kaicrown!! Those are those most awesomely wonderful swags. You both need to put those pictures on the 'Show your swag' thread. It's an informal meeting of swagaholics. You guys rock. Whomever is lucky enough to get one will be thrilled. (At least they should be).

Tatonka, I must find you on the playa, those medals are super f-in' cool!

I've been wiring for days and days... the Land Yacht has a LOT of wiring... the 120VAC wiring is finally done (I think) and the 12V wiring is coming along... did I mention I've been wiring for days and days?
