So it finally occurred to me, duh, that the BMorg may still be sorting out the particulars regarding burn perimeters, inherent design barriers, etc. in order to get everyone involved on board, and show due diligence in an effort to prevent a repeat of last year's problem.

Ratty, I got my thank you card from the Org a little while ago, and was totally stoked to have your signature among those on my card! :mrgreen: I hope you're having a great New Year!

Well it seems those wacky astronomers have gone out on a limb again and predicted that folks out west will be able to see a total lunar eclipse Wednesday before dawn.

Lit the first bonfire of the year here, earlier this evening. A good night for it, the moon is as full as it ever gets.

I have a petty gripe. I flew in pre-event 2017 Friday to help with setup. Flew out Sunday. I drove back in on Wednesday of the event. The G&P guy made me cut all of the pre-event and flight bracelets. I handed them over to him, and he said I could keep them. I am guessing he just fucked with me, or is this protocol on re-entry? I was nervous (which he called me on), but I was just trying to be a good citizen, follow the rules, yadda yadda. I am kind of done with getting fucked with out there. Just curious if any of you have a cogent and sagacious cut on this.

Hey there CDF!! good to seeya! You've not been around in a while.
I don't have any direct knowledge of that being protocol, but perhaps a more official "Gate" person can chime in.
Sorry it was upsetting though. If you know who it was, feel free to PM me and maybe I can track down the issue and why it happened.

After traveling things in the mirror may appear larger than they are. I arrive a week early and seem to end up at D lots door half the time. Why don't the scanners at gate recognize the printed paper? I stretch, laugh, breathe in the dust and smile. What's 30 more minutes?
Oh, and could you put some cones out on the highway so I don't miss the turnoff and go to the next entrance. The guys on that road said everyone was missing the gate road.

Oh, and tell Badger, (I'm pretty sure that was the name.), he's a wimp if he can't take a suggestion of cones. All that cussing and name calling on the walkie was unnecessary. We could have heard him from Gerlach without the intercom. Love you Gate guys. Keep strong and keep it up.

That seems odd. You can contact them at gate@burningman.com according to their website, although I would also CC gate@burningman.org, because to my knowledge, .org is being used for Burn emails these days.

The only thing I can imagine him cutting your bracelets for was to make them un-usable for the rest of the week, which is weird, because if he didn't think you were legit he shouldn't have let you in at all. And if you were legit, your bracelets should've been left intact.

Just need a little early afternoon boost. My mind is turning more to burning things, not lighting things on fire, er, well, you of all people know exactly what I mean. Also, looking for a good rabbit stew recipe.

Elorum:

Catch, skin and gut rabbit or hare. Remove head. Reserve heart, liver and kidney.
Cut rabbit into pieces. Dice organs.
Dredge pieces (but not organs) in seasoned flour.
In a large stew pot, sear pieces in scant oil/butter/fat on stove top.
Cover completely with boiling stock, either vegetable or chicken.
Simmer but do not boil.
Add onions, carrots, celery, whatever vegetables after about 15 minutes.
Add diced organs. (great flavoring)
Add bay, salt, pepper, celery seed, your favorite seasoning.
Add yellow onion skin or kitchen bouquet for color.
Continue simmering until done.
Remove pot from heat and and plunge pan into cold water. Any fat will float to the top. Skim this and reserve it.
Remove rabbit and reserve in warm oven.
Make gravy from the stock in the bottom of the pot by:
Strain the stock.
For every cup of stock you will need: 3 tablespoons fat, 2 tablespoons flour, seasoning if needed.
Heat the fat and add the flour. When this bubbles add the stock a little at a time.
Stir rapidly with a fork until smooth.
Taste and adjust the seasoning.
Good served over rice.

This was my grandmothers recipe she brought from England 1920-1930. She learned how to cook in one of the Big Houses.
It has been adjusted over the years (kitchen bouques!)
