Master Figjam, your chairy-yatch project is amazing and I think it is great that you made it for a friend!

I've been slackin lately. I've only done 1 thing for BM in the last several weeks.

I made 3 ropes with loops at the end to use as a guide when setting the rebar for my MH. 3 lenghts, 5', 12', and 13'. I can use those to make perfect right angles at the proper spacing for a standard LoveMonkey hut.

You had me at 'slackin'. I honestly get a thing a day for the burn but nothing I need or can ever use. It sure is an impressive pile though.

Forget when the man burns, set your calendars for when you load your vehicle - that's the real 'drop dead' date. For me, 14 weeks - though by this time in 98 days, the advance team will already be on the road. Damn, time's flying by quick!

The re-usable and stackable water containers I ordered last week all arrived today, huzzah! I also had a couple great email conversations with campmates today, they've got some really awesome ideas for art and playa projects and I can't wait to see how it all comes together!

Kind of counts as one Item. Sold one of my spare cars today, so now I can actually pay for a ticket when step comes through.
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.

Received American science and surplus order. Can't remember why I needed 6 dinosaur posters. 2 out of four speakers arrived blown. Nice fiber optic sprays.

Certainly looks like a dream to maneuver with compared to most trailers, but seems like towing it would be extremely dangerous with such a light car in any kind of wind, rain, etc...

LOL, well no secret ingredients - I just made it from stuff I have laying around
1ounce each of cocoa butter, beeswax and olive oil then add peppermint oil to desired amount of mintyness. If I had some I'd add Vitamin E as well.

Bought 3 big bottles of vodka, ordered Tom,s trailer hitch... The whole thing under the bumper,not the ball. Bought a bottle of apple pie pear vodka (never had it but is smells good) paid for our water containers and yeah. That's enough for one day.

Yep. Test Early Test Often - especially if you put that rum or flavored vodka in it.

The apple pie vodka was pretty damned good on its own! I'm thinking it would go well with spiced apple cider.
