*rides in on War Rabbit*
Ah, MDF, thanks for cleaning, but, please don't take this personal:
*turns on fan and throws playa dust in, for ambiance*

time is getting short, lots to do.
I'll be at my usual addres, but alas, no Frankencamper. Just a generic old RV, much more comfy, but not at "unique".... Easy to find next to Marty's bus.

Toast to MSJ

It was 104 today at the Reno airport..

I was cleaning storm drains today on i580 so getting sprayed with water every now and again made it more tolable.

Hiya catman!

I avoid the 580 like the plague. Fortunately for me my work route is Keystone to Pyramid I80. Takes a whole 7 minutes to get to work :D

My epic journey to the playa begins 3 weeks from tomorrow.
I can't believe it is finally here.

**Pours drink**

I need this to calm my nerves, finding it hard to focus on anything else.

**Pours drink**

2000 mile road trip from IL to BRC solo...
This is definitely the craziest thing I have ever done.

**Pours drink**

Anyone here planning on camping at Pyramid lake Sunday night?
I am going to stay there and head in at about 3am on Monday.
Would love to meet some people.

**Pours drink**

Been preparing since February and still feel like I am behind.
Better get back to it...

**Pours drink**

Well, one more won't hurt.

Gah. There are ticket requests infesting so many of the forums, just nuts. Not everyone who wants to go gets to attend. Makes me sad.

7 minutes. burnin green with jealousy

Can't say I blame you one bit. Traffic has gotten so heavy on it over the last year, starting around Christmas and seems like it hasn't let up since.
Unfortunately Its the route I work on and the route I use to commute.

Just finished making my little gifts today. Trying to find a way to construct a portable swamp cooler. One that fits in a suitcase.

I need a drink...

Woohoo and hooray for everyone, and huzzah for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - I love that movie.

It's all a bunch of nonsense. I simultaneously feel "what were we thinking" and "OMG I can't wait!"

Tell your electric bike friends to check the NV state regs, and be sure as fuck to 'fly casual' if they want to avoid imperial entanglements.



Meanwhile, hooray for getting all the 2017 limoncello finished and bottled. Shots all round, make like you're getting drunk on Pledge! :)

Hello bar. Long time no see!
My FB account was suspended yesterday because they think I'm using a fake name. As a result, I'm getting quite a bit done!

Cathy and I are heading up to the playa tonight for our annual Meteor Shower camp out. Meteors or not, it's always a good trip cuz we get to see (from a distance) the city building up *and* it's the ultimate shakedown/tune-up for the burn.
They had a good rain up there on Sunday night and then again last night. It will be interesting to see if it settled the upper layer of chunks.

Cheers!

Poors some coffee in mugs

Happy meteor hunting :D we'll all be watching the same sparks (more or less).

The surface of the playa . . . makes me wonder how deep does the dust go and what is beneath it?

We're contemplating going to the playa or out to Dixie Valley on Saturday night coming home around midnight , 01:00 Sunday morning. My understanding is the moon is gonna wash it out
