wow, slow times in Da Bar!
I'm concerned for our folks down in the fire zone.
A huge, fast moving wildfire is in Ventura county, So probably near Gaminwench and others in the region.
I hope they check in as safe soon?
Anyone have info?

She is in Ojai, which appears to be somewhat safe at this point -- from what I find in a quick search.

I'm fine. I'm at home (which is not in the danger zone) with sporadic power and internet. The town evacuation center is like a huge tailgate party, with guitars, ukeleles, dogs and horses everywhere (we'll probably go hang out there tonight for fun), I've many folks monitoring the emergency channels (in case I lose internet) to keep me up to date, and we're just doing the burner thing and making a cozy party out of the whole thing. Please don't worry y'all, I've got a burner buddy here and we're good.

When Ronald Reagan retired, some of his cronies bough him a house. The house number was 666. Regrettably, they noticed.

Morning Peeps. It's a self-made whirlwind of activity. I better have a drink now. There won't be time next week. Monday I start training my replacement at work. Yippy!

The Christmas Parade was a huge success. I loved the float making process.

This morning I bought my ticket for a local event in March. (3 night campout with lots of burner friends.)

Tons of small art projects started around here. I like the process more than the finished items. Last night I put bottle caps on a small hot plate and peeled off the inner linings. I made some HUGE necklaces by stringing big styrofoam Christmas balls. Keeping busy...

Lucky, I can't wait. The 2 years that I've been on the Amtrakathon people have said, "See you at the bunny Burn". I figured it was time I checked it out. Of course the planning has gone ballistic. The voodoo lounge is too ambitious for me alone. I have 2 other events that will fit right in. See you there for sure.

I took the basic Ranger training a few months ago. EXCELLENT STUFF! And applicable to all aspects of life, such as Perimeter and Theme Camp Management.

Have not done PBB, but might one day. It is certainly close enough to me.
One question: Is there swimming? Is it by any chance on Stony Gorge Reservoir? Of course, the water might be too cold anyway.

Irony indeed, FJ!

yeah Elliot, I'm not sure where PBB is, but it says on their website. I just can't remember at the moment. Pretty sure it's not at Stoneyford, though

It's been one heck of a "fun" week in Ventura County ... but yes, for anyone here that doesn't connect to gaminwench on Facebook, both she, and her home, are fine.

At what point in a new relationship do you bring up the fact that you have been to Burning Man (six times) and know you are going to have to explain what Burning Man is?

I always get good advice in a bar so that's why I'm here.
The next morning you will wake up pretty much your old self except that a very unusual 16 hours will have been added to your store of life experience.

If you're fond of this person and want to have a life together, I would recommend telling them about Burning Man 6 months after you're married.

I'd wonder about your relationship, and your open attitudes as a person, if TTITD didn't come up within the first hour of the first date........

I think I would bring it up on either the 1st date (when discussing hobbies) or by the 2nd/3rd date, since--in the event of a relationship--the person is either going to have to 1) have interest in going themselves, or 2) will need to be Understanding when one takes off for 2 weeks off-grid & then comes back both Manic & Tired.
