Took delivery of two Mongoose Beasts, and got my heart broken so I really only need one. Now that's playa prep.

Oh that sucks... but not much can fix it better than going to Black Rock City. Things will be better when you get there!

Better than now...but every good thing will have a shadow cast on it because I would have wanted to share it.

Edit: I pick up two tickets tomorrow...

New camera. New cap. Awesome costumes purchased. Hilarious day had with burner buddies. I think that's enough for one day. :D

Aw shit, hoping you meet someone that can take your mind off it, at least temporarily.

No, it won't. I've gone to BRC in about every possible personal-affairs condition: with a girlfriend, without girlfriend, unattached, and even recently-unattached (and not happy about it).
The playa always provides. It's the best possible place to go in your situation. Things there will work out, usually better that your thought.

spent all afternoon rewiring the headlights and taillights , added some tow lights just to get it home . Will pick it up tommorrow , my friend thinks you should lift it evenly staight up and drive under. I mentioned bringing the front up and leaving the rear on the horse, then getting the truck under then lift the rear, he never heard of it. It seems safer so ill go with that.

Better seat and some practice driving on shell drifts and mucky sand. It'll do nicely on playa, probably won't even notice the soft patches.

Buddy of mine cut 2 half inch extensions apart and welded them to each other. So he uses that to do the same thing but with an electric impact wrench.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

I've got the chocolate milk version from Costco.Very tasty. If my friends' kids find out I was at Costco and didn't bring them a carton, they look at me like they were betrayed.
Disappeared for a number of months. Saw $12 cartons going for $50 on ebay.
Happy to see it back.

Mentioned to my wife that when we put up the camping gear later today to remind me to pull down my Burning Man tent just to verify the footprint. She says why so early, Burning Man isn't until August. I say that's next month. The look on her face was one of shock. Time flies when you are having fun. :D

I don't know if you have these stores in your fair city, but Fred Meyer, QFC and Kroger have sold the Horizon Farms boxed milk. For back-to-school, they frequently sell it for $1 per box. The juice aisle is the first place I check, then sometimes the organic section. Dairy is actually the last place I look, but sometimes it's there, too.

I pack (premixed, liquid) Carnation Instant Breakfast also, in case I get tired of cereal ('cause sometimes I do). I chill it in the cooler.

Breakfast milkshake, nom, nom, nom.
