Morning, Lucky, Patsh and YG. Give us a playa bug update when you get home tonight, YG and also your assessment of the state of the surface of the playa if you can.

Heads for the NEB and dives in

Good morning, good day, good evening to all!

***drops out of bed on the right side and onto a feather pillow***

OOOF! That felt good.

Just one more day in the office. This week has been tense. VERY tense. Lots of little baloney piles up into big piles of problems. So I deal with it the best I can, and if I took anything out on anyone here in my amazing frustration level, I apologize profusely. I hope I didn't or was not perceived as being hateful.

Thumbs up to marty. He makes me smile.

Big Rhinohugglecuddle awaits Patsch. Can't wait to see you.

Yggy, please be careful and safe in you trip. You are much loved by the group. Can't wait to hear about bugville and playa conditions.

Looking forward to getting the dirt! Safe travels. :)

For bug bites I use (gel)Benadryl.. For bee stings where the stinger is in the skin. I use a mashed aspirin dampened to a paste cover with a band aid to keep it damp.. Do not use on children or people subject to Sickle Cell /Cikal Cell..

Bugs never have bothered me , I have always ate alot of onions , so I might have a bad smell to them. We would have thick patches of mosquitos in minn. and they never bothered me.

Howdy all! I know it's been a long time since I graced these halls, but I was nearby and thought it'd be good to see who was around.

Unjohn! Goodness I am so glad to see you're still hanging in there. Hope you are doing fine.

Marty, Ygmir, Savannah! Lots of familiar faces.

Rethinking headlamps. I'm going to see if a local auto parts store has the plastic film you can tape over broken tail lights. Amber or red.

I wonder if amber theatrical gel would act the same as those yellow bug lights that are supposed to repel or keep bugs at bay?...might be worth a try.

Oh what a great idea! Can't imagine trying to have fun with a great huge cloud of bugs in front of my chin. :?

I am so screwed, you guys, my poor old demented mother broke her pelvis and I spent the whole day today at the hospital with her, no progress yet on getting her into hospice and also no packing done :| and I am supposed to be hitting the road in about 10 hours. 8) And, after almost falling asleep at the wheel coming and going, I need to get my head down for a while before I start that 3000 mile journey.

Tamarka Kay was a big help long-distance with distributing the Barbie Death Village Map, whew, (((TK))) but I very much fear I am going to be a bit late meeting up with Graidawg & VultureChow tomorrow evening on the road.

Better late than never!

Wow, it's good to see you, Sput. Been a long time. Be safe, MDF, need to see you in one piece at BRC. You should have a fun trip with Grai and VC. Deep breaths

So, Rhino, Tat, Unjohn (the kid), Savannah, BVB, Sadie, Elorrum, Gamin, Lucky, Patsh, Figjam and so many more, we'll soon be sharing a big dusty hug in what hopefully will be a relatively bug free playa. Let us pray!

Well crap, MDF, like "normal" packing isn't enough without the added parental unit stuff. Been there. I am "on hold" til I leave Tuesday AM. Oddly, it seems like everything is in order this year. Must be something wrong.....Ygmir, wish I was going up there today, so jelly. Mas Café!
