Made my "COUNTDOWN" checklist, which mostly enumerates all the different sets of batteries I need to charge. :-)

Replacement solar panel delivered unexpectedly yesterday, 18 watt "keep the truck battery happy" with charger. So that's nice.

Printed up return address stickers to put on everything for lost and found, and missing dog signs, just in case the unforeseeable occurs.

How did you get a dog permit? Or is this a joke?

Put everything that needs to be loaded into a big pile in the garage.
Made my list of the last few things I need to add to that pile.
Charged the various rechargeables.
Inserted a fresh medical device that should see me through the burn and my trip home (and packed a spare just in case).
Inventoried carport parts.
Checked the tent is all still good (got covered in playa dust :D :D ).
Added a bag of ice to the cooler to cool everything down before adding the perishables (will dump out the melted water before leaving).
Broke my baby toe :evil: . Seriously. Fuck. (Not my first time - this one isn't as bad as the last time In Mexico where I ended up climbing a pyramid in flip-flops - I can totally do BMan in boots).

Loading tomorrow. Leaving Tuesday am. On Playa Thursday.

Today I drove myself and my gear from Northern Colorado to Wendover.
