Thanks gang.

I didn't know if i was still going this year but FUCK IT... I'm going.
Besides, my dad would be pissed if I skipped because of him.

I'm a week behind but I can hustle. Might be a somber year but I think I can use it.

How the fuck are people getting EA passes without having a ticket? I thought those passes were for camp members only to build the camp before the gate opens. Our camp only got a certain amount of EA passes and those only went to people that had tickets and promised to work our asses off to build the camp.

Camp leads hand them out, so someone decided that giving out an EA to a ticketless camp member was a good idea.

Not so fucking much.

FUCK!
Found out while getting the oil changed on my truck last week
that the rear axle seals are leaking onto the brake shoes and
thats why the brakes dont feel right.
Called the dealer and the only day they could get it in
to work on is tomorrow and its going to be a most of the day deal
and $725 out of my checkbook that I hadnt planned on but it has to be done.
I was going to use all day tomorrow as the official "Pack the truck day"
but now thats going to be pushed until whenever I get the truck back instead.
Only good thing is Im pretty sure we only have half as much as we brought last year
so maybe it will go quicker.
Hope to leave wednesday morning as planned still though.

Safe journey to everyone on the road already!!
So the theme this year is like a giant camp out in the desert? With people bringing lots of shit from all over? uh.. -Marscrumbs

Well, Martiansky, I'm sorry you're up against this unexpected delay and expense, but I'm Really Really Fucking Glad you found out about the leak and brakes now, rather than on the road somewhere!! Whew!! :shock:
See you SOON! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Fuck!
Clicking this page was a mistake :(

I'm leaving 3 kitties here at home with a friend I don't trust to tie his damn shoes for 2 weeks but he's all I got. At least he will be here at the house for the 2 weeks I'm gone.

2 kitties are 14 years old and kinda gimpy and I inherited them from my partner of 16 years when he passed away and they are all I have left of our life together.

My kitty is 7 years old and adores me. I mean she's laying here on my arm as I type this right now. In 7 years we've never been more than a day apart. I KNOW she's gonna spazz out when I'm gone for more than a few days and be a total mess by the time I get back.

My nightmare is a kitty refusing to eat and puking everywhere while she pines away all over the house looking for me and an older cat getting so stressed out by it all he/she keels over while I'm 2,000 miles away!

God I wish I never read this page.

Once they get in there, it could be twice that much at a dealership.

I just had mine done and thought it would be just rear pads.

One drum flooded and raining parts as I watch them dismantle everything, so I had them pull the fronts too.

The only thing not broken were the bearings, and the drums and rotors were already 10,000 over.

I watched all the new parts go on as they rebuilt everything from the hubs outward.

$1300 and it wasn't a dealership!!!!!!!!!!!

Very true, I am glad the problem was caught before leaving home!

Msj,
Hope to meet you out there too, thanks!
We will raise a glass out there together!!

Figjam,
Seems like axle seals are contagious!
I had the drivers side one done before the trip last year, wasnt impressed
with the place(not the dealer) that did it last and charged me way more
then the dealer is going to and not back their work!

Jneil,
Leaving are fur babies at home is always a difficult thing to do.
I hope that all goes well with your petsitter and maybe
the cats teach him a thing or two!

FUCK, yeah! Safe trips to all!

Fuck! My brain seems to have forgotten what sleep is at the worst possible time. It happened last year on the playa, but to happen now? I'm working 14 hour days and trying to finish up a few projects yet, so when I do go to bed and insomnia kicks me in the teeth several times a night (can't fall asleep, can't stay asleep) it really, really hurts.

I'm having the same problem. I find that I have too many thoughts about what I still need to do & what have I forgotten bouncing around. I'm usually happy with 5 hours of sleep but lately that's been wishful thinking. I'm at the point now where I'm packing Wed & Thur & whatever I don't have done will just have to wait for next year. I am really feeling fashion deficient since I have not had any time for that in the last few weeks. But I have to keep reminding myself that if I just take everything from last time all will be good. That seems to help.
In your wildest dreams you can not imagine the marvelous SURPRISES that await YOU.

Benadryl and the like don't make me drowsy. When I had a 1:1,000,000 reaction to the TDAP vaccine I got back in May or June I took four and didn't feel even a little drowsy, even after I was able to breathe without struggling and the adrenaline died down. I have a really weird constitution. Pain killers also do nothing for me (Vicodin and the like I was given post-op might as well have been sugar pills). Fucking sucks, some times.

Fuck. Looks like I'll be traveling tomorrow instead of today. Where did all this crap to be loaded come from. I'll try to finish packing tonight, and leave tomorrow morning. I did not start loading soon enough, my bad.

Up and out of here to finish and GO.

Took a short trip (6 day) to the Netherlands for a reunion party. Supposed to be back Friday night. Was planning to pack Saturday and leave for TTITD Sunday morning. That was the plan. Return flight was cancelled. Next flight back is noon Saturday. Still can leave Sunday but it will definitely be in fucking zombie mode.

Congrats... that looks like a reliable relatively economical rig that will carry a BM camp worth of stuff. Somehow I'm sure that last point was something that figured into the choice!

But, fuck! I'm not out there this year either.

$725 for axle seals and some brake pads? Shit that's not $100 worth of stuff. And it's an easy job!
God damn I'm glad I taught myself to turn a wrench! Axle seals are nothing but a little metal ring with a rubber liner. Dirt cheap. You just yank them off and tap new ones back on. Brake pads are cheap and super easy.

Crap...
