I couldn't find a gluten free battery.

Today is the day for the most important item! So my ticket is now 2.8 miles away. Can't wait to enjoy the fireball.

I can see how too much barley in the batter might keep it from aerating well, and how getting drunk on pancakes in the morning could lead to foolish purchases.
However, I like your style.

I just ordered more lag screws as I have a feeling the major supplier mentioned in eplaya may run out of the 14" & 18" sometime soon because of lagmania spreading like a virus across the playa.

Ordered a costume, got the parts for the EMT shade structure that will go over my van, and worked the weekend on my gifts.

Missed the post lady Saturday because I was at Pride but got the notice that my ticket package has arrived. Off to the Post Office today to get it. So close I can feel it!!

I did the same thing yesterday. While I already had 6 for my small tent/shade set up, I wanted more after seeing how easy they go into the ground with my new impact driver. I’ve been eyeing a ¼ “ driver for some time and almost bit when my local hardware store had a driver/drill combo for $129, which included two batteries. Then on Sunday I saw a hand written “new low price” sticker by them for $99 so I pulled the trigger. It rang up as $129 and I had to get a manager to override the price, so maybe it was mislabelled.

Here is the fun part: after giving it a full charge, I ran around the yard drilling my lag screws into different spots. It’s not the playa but I wanted to get an idea of how many I could get in and out with one battery. After 12 or so times doing it and no noticeable loss in power, I was satisfied. Imagine being my neighbour watching me randomly drill in/out 14” lag screws in different parts of my yard without any clear logic in mind.

At the hof this weekend i learned that at least one person pounds them in half way and finishes the job with a ratchet. Works fine if you just have a few to put in.

But I did get these from my friend today, so my "to do list" just happily tripled 8) He's loaning me what they go to for the burn.

Just received my email notification!! :D Well, at least one of them.... Ha!!

Question: I have two orders on TicketFly. One for the BM ticket, one for the VP. Each were bought at different times/ different people. I have already had the tickets changed from Will Call to "mail them to me". Is it normal practice for BM/TF to combine both tickets, then mail them? I ask because the order they said was created, (stated in this email) is different from both other order numbers on my TF account. (ticket & VP respectively)

Or will each ticket be mailed separately with separate notifications?
2nd time better than the first. And the first was pretty Freakin' Great!

Went camping over the weekend to break in the new 9x8' tent. It's massive! And tall enough that my better half doesn't have to stoop!

Sav, that's a good reminder that we need to get our vehicle reserved. Is starting a list enough of an item for today?

I also just got to test out a new tent. It's HUGE, and tall and even pretty! (10' x 10', and 6' tall, and turquoise with light blue-grey.)
It certainly passed the Hof test, but the final exam will be the Playa.

How are you going to decorate it? Maybe you could write 'French Whore's Shower' on it.

Now that's a slide in lift!! Nice!!
I have been eyeing an electric tongue jack for the RMC. They never go on sale it seems.

List items:
Fabbed and installed mounts for the bike basket.
Fabbed temporary tie downs for bike in bed of truck. Will install when bike gets strapped down.
Final testing on grey water evap unit. Just playing with different water distribution methods. Being geeky... :roll:
Head Ache Rack is in powder coat, pick it up next week.

Non list items: Things that pop up while doing 'List Items'. :?
Repaired failed switch in trailer ceiling fan. Which included complete cleaning of the fan.
Did the other one just because.
Repaired water leak on water tank fill line.
Inspected everything under the trailer while I was laying under there.
Re-organize item location in the trailer.

Movin' and Groovin'!! :mrgreen:

These came from a day bed out in the bunk house. They look like they will convert into bike racks quite nicely.

This is really clever, BeeWeeDee! I'll keep my eye out now - my camp definitely needs bike racks!

I scored a large, free padded cloth for protecting furniture while moving. Should make a good ground cloth for in the tent.

OOoohh!! I just scored one of those, too... such a good idea, as I don't plan on moving any time soon.
