First leg complete, the only missing item discovered so far is my iPod. Turns out it's sitting on the kitchen counter at home. On the plus side the lovely couple I had dinner with in OH have lovely parting gifts for me among which were about 10 CD's of road music, a neat utility 1000-1 tool and a great dinner to boot.

The registration arrived at home today a copy of which will be waiting for me in Denver.

The left rear brake light sensor triggered again, it turns out the idiot who replaced it a week or two ago didn't seat it properly. I gave myself a well-deserved slap on the back of the head.

In one sense it felt good in another it hurt like hell.

Got word that it's hit 80 MPH within the last few days! Also, I'm sure y'all heard about the rain. Yikes!

Everything is packed in the plastic storage boxes. Cooler stuff is in the fridge getting cool. Going back over everything I see that I'm missing one item - nasal spray. Caught Playa lung last year and definitely don't want it again this year. Decompression a week after Burning Man is a trans-Pacific cruise from Vancouver to Hawaii. Any sign of a cough and you are not allowed on-board :cry:

Yeah, a sub-camp of former rangers or friends of rangers that aren't actually ranging this year. At least I think none of us are. But that's where I am, when sleeping! :)

That's cool! I am still debating taking a year off, this year...

Did y'all see the lastest weather news? Pretty crazy.

RE Playa Lung: take it from me, who learned the hard way! Take care of your lungs! Wear that mask! Clean out those passages - and moisturize! Try to keep your tent dust-free. Last year was the first year I wore dust masks, and it made a difference. Also a difference, sleeping in a mesh tent with the mesh not covered. Woke up coughier than usual (I didn't set it up). Also have a ton of lozenges, this year. I don't know exactly why, but it's in my notes (I keep notes all week, on what to do better/bring/don't bring next year - invaluable).

Wow. Packed. At office. Leaving for airport in 7 hours. Full day of work.

Box with lion broke. Rewrapped in everything imaginable to keep it safe. We'll see. I might need some glue when I get to reno.

Shade structures and I have a serious love/hate relationship. First it was a heavy duty carport. Next was an umbrella. I just drilled some holes in tent poles and plan to use a sail as shade. I put it up in the back yard. UGLY! (But shady).

I made the circus tent and decided that I had lost my mind. It would have been too hot, not shady enough and won't take ANY wind. But it's beautiful. I'll use it in Auburn for the Fairies. I'm done..............

Then head out on sunday to hopefully chill out on the highway with peeps while we await entry. Still got repairs to do to the DC-9 tailwings, haven't loaded the trailer at all and the pvc moon rover is still in pieces. Gettin pretty damn excited, i must say! :D :D

Ha! I've been fishing for ravers from my boat for years!
There's even a many-year-old glow stick still on the fishing line!

This is officially my last post before I make like a baby, and head out!

I'm suffering through the final hours of work, trying to look busy...

I should have the trailer hitched up and on the road by 8pm. It's about time!

Be safe everyone, and I hope to see you when you get home!

I did that too. And brought patches and a big air compressor!
I've peeled trailer tires off their rims enroute to BRC when I had to make a tight maneuver.
It's kinda life-or-death to be able to put them back on!!
