True, but I never do! I figured out years ago that I was never gonna do all, see all, meet all that I wanted to out there so I've learned to accept it.

TPBM is making plans for next year.

Indeed. I have a (perhaps unrealistic) vision of an R/C and slightly interactive robot. I might have to enlist the help of someone with some more computer programming chops than what I've got. I'm hoping to have some Audio and visual telemetry (both ways) with sufficient quality to be able to make a good video of it later. Thinking a EEE PC and a good web cam. Any way I cut it, it's going to wind up quite expensive.

Watch for special commemorative woodblock prints to raise funds for it.

True very.

I heard on the news this week that if you have a few extra pounds, you will live longer and retain your cognitive functioning longer.

Yes indeed - fragment of a .223 round, and a chunk of pencil lead from when Matt A in 5th grade threw it at me and the tip broke off.

The person below me is already planning next years burn, and who NOT to re-invite from their group this year.

TRUE

Oh where, oh where, has my lil mule gone? When your camp was tagged, was there any sign of the one legged teenager? Any stilt marks in the playa?

TPBM thinks that Da Mule went the way of Timothy.

No, I have full confidence that Da Mule can take care of himself.


TPBM has more than a hazy memory of who Timothy is.
