My post office told me today to come back on Monday and have the Postmistress run a search on her computer. She sees more than we do. On the other hand they said I need to go one city over to talk about the insurance coverage. Nobody in this town does insurance. We have 3 offices and over 30,000 people. And the worst PO system around.Thanks again for the info canoe.

Hooray
However my camp internal strife is making me think maybe it's best to camp elsewhere like Decades ago when this all began before it got so perfect it was a different kind of perfect

Is that like fruit punch? Is poon-tang orange flavored? I'm lost, good night.

Ratty, I don't know if it makes you feel any better but a couple of years ago I shipped a ticket to a campmate overseas and it got stuck in the Australian postal system for what seemed like FOREVER. Just when we were totally sure that he would be ticketless, by some playa miracle it showed up on literally the last possible day. I have faith that your missing ticket will do the same, albeit hopefully with a little more wiggle room.

Three more days of work here...I'm already totally checked out. All that's left to do is the food and booze shopping and then loading the car!

Thanks Madgirl. We haven't given up. She is hitting all the government offices and emails today. HARD. I on the other hand am finishing up at work. then toss the rest in the car and leave while it's still dark in the AM. I feel more 'less ready' than usual. but I'm ready.

I'll send some of my magical mystical Rhino mojo your way to solve the problem, heal the wounds, and calm your dusty fears.

My own odd-yssey begins today as soon as I finish loading. The trailer is full this year. Last minute purchases are made, and attitude has undergone major adjustment. See you all in the dust!

From table 16 sector 03 (the quiet part of the bar.)
Ah, Hem:
Well, the kids are again getting ready to leave for the BRC summer camp. Once again, dear friends; into the breach. Amen.
(Now) Get off my lawn and go play in the dust.
But please take my very best wishes for your Journey.
Thank-you for the kindness shown to each other through-out the year. You sure made me laugh and… some of you (dear bastards) made me cry… Yeah, that’s right; I am man enough to admit it… Ya want to make something of it? Well, do ya punk?...
Yeah. That’s what thought.
Again I must give, from that stupid place of personal sincerity, a special shout out to the Mods: heartfelt thanks for all you do. (If you see or meet any of these weirdo’s: please act natural and just treat them as if they were actually normal people.) ((heartfelt)) … Naw… just treat them like the fuckin’ weirdo’s that they obviously are. (We don’t want to spoil ‘em.)
In that Spirit…
The drinks are on me… Anything you want, really! (with a special return-a-shout to BVD). (See, I remembered.) Raise a glass: “Here’s to a great burn… and safe travels… Long May You Run”
Much love, hugs and kisses: GadMatt

TLDR= The dude wants you off his lawn.

Indeed, GadMatt...into the maws of BRC's environs, where the Desert is actively engaged in trying to kill us 24/7 and failing more often than not.

And tell the dude to pay for the pizza, or we'll do a dirty hippy drop on his lawn.
