Now that they've caught the responsible party, hopefully they get a good handle on that thing and soon! Two major fires at your back door in as many years, must be friggin nerve wracking...

17 counts of arson, including this one. Long list of previous crimes.
I shouldn't bother you with this info, but I'm feeling slightly irked.
It's a tiny consolation knowing he's been stopped, but not much of a consolation to all the folks who've lost their homes, or been evacuated.
I sure hope your place is still OK, Elliot! Any word yet on when you'll be allowed back?

News on the fire is better this morning. Now it looks likely my neighborhood will be spared. But no telling when I can go back.

Too early to say that, but it looks likely.
It is hotter today, and afternoon winds can change things fast. And they consider only 20% of the fire-perimeter to be safely contained.
But "guardedly optimistic", yes.

I can't wait to see Elliot and Mary! I went to your foot salon every day last year and I plan on doing the same this year. Seriously, the only thing that I made sure I did every single day. Mr. and Mrs. Hamster will be bringing our campmates by!

Whew! Glad you're heading back home Elliot, and still with a bit of time before you leave for the desert. Best wishes to all of those in the area.

Thanks, friends!
Still on awkward laptop, but am in my own undamaged home.

Will probably arrive on Playa a day or two later than planned, but that's still plenty of time to set up.

Well, I'm not much of a drinker, but I have enjoyed some flavorful Bourbons over the years.

Preparations have resumed at Number One Elliot's Naked World Headquarters Tower. One camper is here now, and two more will be here late Saturday. With that extra help, all should be ready when the Gate opens to the Masses Who Bring Broken Bicycles.

Running far behind schedule, and failing to keep in touch with everybody. But we will be there -- arriving Wednesday or maybe Thursday.

Daily bulletin; same as the last. Planning departure Wednesday. Tomorrow morning we will try to stack 60 bicycles on the roof of Millicent The Bus... without exceeding 14 feet tall.

No worries about being already tired when the Event begins... I took time to install a much better bed in said bus. :mrgreen:

I saw mention of rain on Playa. But it's all good.
50-plus bicycles are now loaded on Millicent's roof! That's a first. I didn't dream we'd actually get that many up there.

Ride safe, Elliot!

Thanks, Scout!
All those bicycles are on the roof now, instead of breaking the trailer in half. So we should be OK. (The trailer was built for having significant weight over the axles only.)
