So glad to be Playa-bound after a 2 year hiatus! Getting tickets this late has definitely put me behind on preparations though! Hit the ground running this weekend by checking the "fun lighting" inventory, making sure all the pieces of my purple leopard bike are accounted for, and turning our old canvas gazebo cover into a ground cover for our shade area.

Almost done sewing a see-through screen for the front of our shade structure. It can stay rolled up and attached until needed.

Took the damn fleece off my tent and tried to sew on some nylon. As it turns out, fleece just filters the dust before depositing it in my tent. Now I know that you can't really sew anything on a tent without putting it up and basting it on first. Grrrrrrr. I think I'll make a table cloth or two before I look at that project again.

Dusted off my baby "travel" sewing machine & made sure it still works. And went through my official Playa-Wear Repair Kit to make sure I'd be ready for any clothing repairs, adjustments, or modifications that come up for the folks in camp. This little bundle is the official start to this year's Pack for Burning Man Pile.

Took the pop-up trailer out for a spin this weekend and made sure it's ready for another Playa adventure. Did a few minor repairs, and changed out some kitchen supplies.

This is very much an equipment sport. I was jealous of my neighbors instant tent so I made one. I pull it out of the bag and it pops into tent shape. This will help me unload when I arrive and give me a place to sleep the last night. (After I load up the car for an early morning departure.) It was a worthless sunshade. I sewed on a piece of nylon to form walls and floor. Plus I extended the zipper all the way to the peak. Silly, you betcha.

Very Nice Job Ratty! :coffee: Your sewing skills never cease to amaze me. :mrgreen:

Gave the RMC some love. Removed the fridgy for some 110vac repairs. Painted the bay it sits in as its open to the elements. Sealed up a few openings to help insulate it a but more. Painted the ceiling in the bathroom. New roof vent for the bathroom and resealing the rest of the wood paneling is next.

Just need to wire up the Grey Water Evap unit, V2. Waiting on a couple of plugs.

And finally my new SteamPunk hat is stretching out nicely. 8)
2nd time better than the first. And the first was pretty Freakin' Great!

Damn that's exciting. Receiving the ticket just makes it feel more REAL. Is it too early to start prepping my freezer meals?

I'm actually at my desk at work but I have brought up the security camera on my computer that shows the entrance to the loading dock where the UPS trucks come in. I'll know the second he pulls into the lot.....LOL.

Today was upkeep and maintenance day for some parts of the Vortex of Destiny. Still a few more fixes to do, but at least its a start. Our new camp sign is far more exciting at the moment. and of course, it's in 3D! Still not quite done, but here's a sneak peek!

Opened up a bin that has been in my shed since last year. Looks like some vinegar had leaked out and there was this coating of rust over all the metal in there. Guess I should have opened it sooner.....LOL

In an effort to get into some kind of physical shape I rode my bike to work today for the first time in over a year. Better to be sore now than when I want to bike all the way across the playa to see the next thing being set on fire.

Sketched some plans for our Monkey Hut and also made some plans for a fold-down sleeping platform extender in our home-built camping trailer. We currently share a foam mattress that's slightly wider than a twin. Though we've slept on this successfully at many other festivals, there is something about the Burn that demands that I be able to stretch out comfortably at night. Thus, a platform extension!

Doing some maintenance on the Truck this last weekend, (2003 Sierra 2500HD 4x4, Extended Cab, Long Box) this weekend and noticed a lot of slop from the slip yoke on the transfer case. Further inspection after dropping the drive shaft revealed it is toast! Yoke scored, inner output shaft bearing wobbles in the inner case carrier, oil is black like motor oil after being changed last year just before the burn. Should be some shade of red.

[email protected]#$%^&*() !!!!!! Looking for a replacement now. At least I have a couple of months to get things fixed. :roll:
