Dang, Marty.

The burn changes every year, and the rotation of old out and new in is part of that. But there are traces in our hearts...

Hi LLF, got good news on the heart front yesterday and am feeling much better as each day passes. Got the car washed yesterday. I will be so up for a "Martyfest" in Harbin with you.

Thanks to all for your help in Hushville who broke my camp and packed my car. What a great bunch of campmates.

Marty, I'm sad to hear your ills. I listened for a text from you and then anti M told me what happened. We'll be seeing each other around town at events. Kisskiss. Hughug

I hope so, Ratty. Had hoped to connect with you on Playa but found I did not have your number. Dang! SF Decomp is soon so hope to see you and a bunch of others there.

Marty, I'm so glad to know you're feeling better as the days go by. Sorry to have missed seeing you!
I hope each day is even better than the last.

My little overloaded car will be lucky to be cleaned by November. I hope to be home by some time Friday, and if the top load will allow me into the garage (not being too tall) it could be November before I can unload it, bit by bit. However, if it's too tall for the doorway, it'll have to be sooner. First things first... find a chiropractor.

This little trip to the desert has (again) done wonders for my feelings of belonging to a bunch of amazingly wonderful fuckos whom I love with all my heart. Thank you so very much... Smooches and Hugs!!

Marty - so glad you are better! I also missed seeing a lot of folks I wanted to see. I went down hard with a norovirus on the Wednesday of the M&G, spewed for a couple of days and had to work really hard to rehydrate.

I think the 2015 bar should remain, there's tons of 2015 stuff to BS about in here still.

January 1st. That's almost a third of the year to go. Plenty of time to trash this one.

:(
*staggers in, wearing unholy mix of Dust and grease, carrying large piece of mangled metal. collapses in chair and begins incoherent narrative*

Trailer broken in Wadsworth Rest Area. Coupling broken off tongue.

Plan to rent U-haul and transfer load. Could use help with this work.

Could also use storage yard for a few days, to avoid driving U-Haul to Clearlake.

Trying to reach Sven (Barb Wire) and Carla here in Sparks.

Next, repair trailer. Trying to avoid cost of towing. Have e-mailed Mr.Fixit, but he is a busy man.

I have a "trow-away" cell phone. 707-295-5609. Will turn this on when I leave the library. (No computer except here.)

Rest Area employee said it is OK to stay there a couple days, so not panicking. But need to keep cost down.

In other news... camp was a grand success!

Entirely my fault. Trailer WAYYYYY overloaded, specially in front.
Have reached Mr.Fixit, and he is asking for more details. So optimistic on that front.

I can come up with a welder and steel, tomorrow morning, Elliot, if needed. I'm toast for getting there today.
if it could be fixed, you'd not have to unload.
I have jacks and such, too.

Elliot update:
he called and says he has parts and tools, so repairs are under way.
he'll call if he needs help, but, as always does not want to bother anyone, so, will do it himself.

Taking a break from my ratchet strap/bungee cord untangling party to say hello. Hello.
Marty..so glad you are home and doing well.
Elliot..bummer! Sorry you are having trouble on the road.

It was a great burn...loved seeing those of you that I managed to see. I missed a few of you..dangit.

Slowly getting things cleaned off to store...no garage, so it has to be at least semi clean before I drag it inside.

Elliot update:
he's made it to Mr. Fixit's in Reno, with the trailer and repairs held.
he'll be re-loading and making his way home, and may have to make a trip back to Reno for more stuff, if it seems the load can't be balanced.

Safely home to Clearlake. Overloaded trailer still in Reno for later retrieval. Rather tired, so more later.

:(
Nearby community of Cobb on fire and Middletown in imminent danger. Several of our camp members live on Cobb -- and their house burned down 15 years ago.
