New battery for the pickup.

Art, every day, all the time.

Weekly fire conclave practice, even though we aren't lighting up yet.

Went through my master packing list and made the necessary changes from last year. Removed some things that I never ever use, added some new things, made a note of the things that need replacing etc.

10x 10x Kodiak tent
Super freaking cool bike lights
Started crafting playa gifts (My favorite part)
New head lamps and flashlights
Camelbak
Gift for post man
Cards to mail with stamps
Combat boots
Sweats and sweatshirts warm socks

I went a little crazy, got bored after my operation and spent plenty of time shopping online. Next I seriously want to invest in a heater buddy and also need to reserve the uhaul. When does Barbie Death Camp usually do the hotel reservation date? So freaking excited! My year has been completely dedicated to BM 2018. Hopefully I'm able to lock in a ticket on the main sale date.
The answer may not be at Burning Man, but shouldn't we at least check :?:

Researched aluminet prices, still waffling until I make a phone call or two.

Congrats on your tickets, I hope I'm able to lock those in.

Reserved a cargo can and picked up couple things for my first aid kit. Oh yeah, also bought a shorter bike since I can barely reach the pedels on last years.

4 dozen blank solid bandanas got delivered today! I am THRILLED with the design I am putting on them for this year's gifts. Saturday sessions in the local print maker-space are now on the docket!

Ordered my usual pile of key chain LED lights for darkwads. This year in red, good for seeing but not wrecking night vision. I always get the kind with screws so the batteries can be changed!

Picked up a bunch of second hand EL wire from gumtree, trying hard not to buy loads of new stuff just for one use so pretty happy with that!

Created the 2018 tabs on my packing list spreadsheet and started updating stuff.

And going to PHX this weekend for our camp's annual work party, where we clean, repair, and reorganize our infrastructure stuff.

Look for Cocoons; huge selection of high-quality fitovers. They're pricey, so I waited for a sale!
I get the 'old lady' type with a 'roof' and wraparound earpieces; I find they do a lovely job keeping out the dust.

I try on anything that grabs me. I hot glue some foam, (cut foam old yoga mat), onto them. A strip on the top makes them hang on my frames. Any pair that I like can be mine and fit over my glasses.
