We'll miss you (((Yggy))) but I'm sure the fence-jumpers will not. :shock: And maybe we can meet up in Reno, post-Burn? I will be there until the 10th or so; since Puppy decided to get married on the 12th, no sense in me flying back and forth and back in a week, sheesh...

HI MDF.
awe, that's nice of you to say. yeah I'll miss chasing hippies, for sure!
and yeah, it'd be fun to meet up post Burn in Reno! I know some years there are many folks who spend a few days in Reno after.
I'll see if I can get Speedbump or someone to haul your cook stove wood out, if you still need/want it? I don't know if I can get anyone to haul the firewood though....but I'll try.

I have plenty of wood for the stove and the fire pit, thanks for asking! Will think of you when the sparks rise up. 8)

HI gang!
yeah MDF, sparks rising indeed. I wish you all the best of times!
I'm gearing up for work at the Hof, and of course the party on the 13th weekend.
the alternate route in is ok. The last mile or so is just as rough as the other way, but it's shorter on the "roughest" part. More dirt road, but better maintained. Still not sure about the route in from the east. I've gotten no reports from anyone driving in that way.

I believe that's the overflow from the multi-week lasting hand & clothes protective film. Before cured, it can be concentrated with acetone.

spray foam:
the most sticky nasty stuff ever made. sticks to everything, insulates, waterproofs, and allows for thermal movement differentials between the 8" of concrete wall behind, and 4" of granite masonry wall/siding.

There's even a black coloured (closed-cell) version available, useful where it may be visible among landscaping stones/masonry. Greatstuff Pond & Stone.

He informed me recently that this year's Hof Ting is canceled for lack of sign-ups.

Hi nilasnake! Good to see you back here on eplaya. Hope all is well. Any chance that the Sideshow going to be making another grand appearance on the playa this year?

..and argh, yes it seems that there will be no Hof gathering this year..

viewtopic.php?f=26&t=86273

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to make it out to the Hof yet; I'm hoping this year is just an aberration. It certainly is a generous offer.

correct.
additionally, the alternate route, that's being used due to the main road still not being repaired, has gone to hell! it's getting so torn up and rough, it's a very unpleasant last mile or so.....so yeah, hoping for road repairs and all for next year I guess? dang the luck of the last two years though.... I miss my friends....

HI BVB! Yeah it'd be great if you could come to one of the gatherings there!

I'm sorry to hear you won't make it this year, Yggy; I'd missed the original post. :(

But I understand needing to take a year off. This was almost my year to do so, and then I just sort of found myself preparing anyway.

burner von braun, as far as i'm concerned, I think I may never go to burningman again. killbuck and I are going to try and go to regionals (went to pagan bunny and soak, then onto wasteland weekend) so a mini-version of sideshow is our camp. the rest of the camp will reconfigure as coyote magic camp, I think. living in reno, it feels like we burn all year round, and there is ample opportunity to work on burningman destined art projects. look forward to the hof next year!

It's the volunteer season. As all the individuals and departments make that last push to the playa, everyone could use a hand. Yesterday Census wrapped up some loose ends. Today I'm off to help Center Camp with decor. Maybe I'll start on my own prep soon.
