Went to Walmart and picked up a 1500psi electric pressure washer for $90.

Making cleanup a lot easier and only uses 1.5 gallons a minute. 8)

But can it handle vinegar without fugging up the pump and seals? I tried that with a paint sprayer and it turned it into a nice hunk of recyclable materials... Good (albiet 'spensive) education.

I just used water and let the pressure do the rest.

Can't find any trase of dust when I run my fingers over the cleaned surfaces. 8)

Cool... I never thought of just water and pressure; I've been so indoctrinated by vinegar that not having vinegar wouldn't have hit me...

Hi Schtev!!
Now, one of these days, I'll get around to figuring out how to change from Triken to Patch, (thanks to 3 year old Lolo!) without losing all my history (again). The first order of business will be to find an appropriate new avatar.

Just IM Trilobyte. He can do name changes, and they'll apply retroactively to all posts.

Criminy, Pat! First you are Ding, then Triken, and now you want to change it again! :lol: :lol: :lol:

As for your avatar, I think you should use the impromptu portrait Aaron took of you in the house a couple of years ago.

I have the best picture ever of Triken. Unfortunately it involves a mutant bicycle better suited to her current username.

Yep, Trilo can switch you around. It will be posted down in the name change forum, so there's a record of it.

Contemplates coffee. Larry is in the yard. rinsing down everything which cannot run away from him. I get the laundry and the dishes, I have the kitchen box exploded all over. While Larry and I restrict ourselves to our individual sets of flatware, cup/plate/bowl, others in camp used a clean thing each time rather than washing their dish/utensil. All ended up in a plastic bag if yuckiness. Time for more education. But not now. Time for coffee. And Agavero.

Trilo will most absolutely be able to help you with the switch. And we'll find the perfect pic to go with, I'm certain.

In the meantime, I'm sitting here all distraught over this toothbrush, which someone is SURE to be missing, as it does not look cheap. In fact this may be the most impressive toothbrush I've ever seen!!!

Best guesses is it was in the changing room when we did that sweep. How it ended up in my bag is beyond me....


AntiM's bag of yuckiness makes me feel very guilty. Patch's car is just barely encapsulating a shit ton of "eventually needs tending to" that I am not there to share in the doing of. I'm not really comfortable with this far away and useless status....

Hey everyone... Delle is cute, huh Schtev... it's my second day home and I've yet to do anything!
MAYBE today I'll go deal with my camper and it's busted tiedowns that happened ten miles from home. And start unloading it and the Yacht.
But there's a place that rents hot tub/sauna suites that I think I need to visit first!

Got home last Sunday evening, unloaded the food and ice chest on Monday, the rest of the stuff dumped in the garage on Wednesday, did laundry and the car wash on Friday and will stow stuff tomorrow. No sense rushing this!

So enjoyed seeing all of you! Missing you all already. Man burns in 355 days ... gotta start planning. SF Decomp is on Oct 13. Gotta get ready. Still a bit tired and having difficulty adjusting to defaultia. Ready to go home!!

Hugs to you all

I'm sad to say I'm not long-established enough to know of Black Rock Ric, but I did lose all composure when Eric wore an
"LA Batman" nametag at the Meet & Greet last year.

Fuck! Drunk again. It's happy hour. What can I say? Typing is a challenge. I'm up to it. My van is ½ full of dusty stuff. I ran the hose over it yesterday with not too much effect. It's now encased in adobe. I should make like the waitresses and blow it out. (Hey, I manage a bar in a casino. We are a crass crowd.) Am I crazy? Is every year better than the last one? I ran into a burner friend at my 2nd hand store today. She had the worst time ever. Boyfriend problems. Dump him. I heard the same story last year. Some women are so insecure that they just keep on fucking the guy like he is the only game in town.

My burn always feels like it's better than ever. I have fun. Forget the real world for 10 days and ALWAYS make more friends. This year I really loved the M&G. I rode along with Robbi Dobbs for Potty patrol and did 'random candy deliveries'. My candy deliveries take me into tents at night, camps full of folks kicking back etc....There were 3 boys with cases of carburetor cleaner that loved to spray them into the bbq and when they were 10 foot flames they would duel with fire. Stand back. Stupid kids at play. I was gifted home made jerky, spare ribs, HEY! Did you know that tequila and Fireball mix together nicely?

I ran into Foxfur on a pyramid. Rode on a Star Wars vehicle. Hugged Uncle Ira. Greeted foreigners. Greeted a girl that thought I was asking about her sexual experiences when I asked if she was a virgin. Ate in the commissary. Visited the gloppita gloppita machine where poop is separated from piss. Got a shampoo. Gave a foot massage. Stayed till the city emptied out. Picked up a hitch-hiker. Plus a ton of other memories. I even took some pictures. Where's my camera? I hope they want greeters at SF decompression this year. That was fun. Toppless Debb I love you. Oops. Dinner is on. I bought 10 things for next years burn today. Lots of costume stuff, a disco ball, 2 cat food lids that will fit my soup and fruit cans, plus a thing you run along the ground to tell you how far you have traveled. (How burner. A useless object.) Oops, glass is empty. Gotta run. Love you guys. Really.

Yeah, I think that was Ring of Fire... Bust out laughing. I'm glad someone remembers.

If I recall correctly, RoF was the guy who told the story about how he and a couple of friends kidnapped his cousin because the family didn't like the girlfriend, or something like that. And there was the notorious IcyHot Balls thread...
