Yep, to be mailed. So I asked him about the pink slip from the PO and he'd been carrying it with him for A MONTH. When asked why he didn't get it he said, he didn't know who it was from. IM GONNA FUCKING KILL HIM! The tracking number is no longer valid so I can only assume they went back to the BM office and we will have to get them at will call. I'm telling him today he has to sort this out TODAY. He's so fucking lucky to have me. I do all the planning and packing so he can have a good burn and he does something like this. ACK!

My bestest, oldest best friend John Breidenfield passed away tonight after a valiant but losing battle with ALS. Affectionately known as "John B" for decades. For over 40 years, we tried our best to put a dent in this planet, there are literally thousands of great stories of adventures we survived. Bikes, women, boats, planes, Mexico, diving, stores, swamps, big game fishing, oceans, jungles, Costa Rica. My best friend. We shared some incredible events, a books' worth. A great friend, as he put up with my shit since the 60's. With all certainty, I will slip the bonds of earth someday, and pray to meet with him again...and go off on some new adventures. John, your pain and suffering is over, your soul is free now. My sorrow knows no bounds. Rest in peace, my brother, you are sadly missed.

It worked for me.

Maybe you could print out on--that one with the swordfish?--and have it at the Bait shop at the pier and then let it burn wiht the pier? It might "work" better for you on that level than the temple...

Just a fucking suggestion.

I plan on bringing many photos, as there are thousands from our years of adventures. I might put a few at the baitshop, but will probably do some Temple thing. This year, the Temple is just going to un-fucking-bearable for me.

This makes me sad but mostly disappointed in myself for forgetting. :(

Fuck, mgb, I'm sorry for your loss. Anytime is too soon to lose such a beloved pal. It sounds like he made the most of every minute, though, so maybe there's consolation in that.

Lazerfox, what a frustrating mistake! I hope you can somehow get your hoops to the playa, or can find someone there who will share theirs with you.

y'know, MGB.........Fishy is right. fucking right. I buried my best friend, a few years ago........I officiated at his service. What, an honor!! you get to tell the world, about your friend........show, just how you cared, and enlighten those, who knew him not as well.......I eulogized without script, for a heartfelt conversation, with folks who loved him, is an easy, flowing thing.......we had tears, and laughter.....but all left, feeling we learned something.......

Well fuuuck. You folks are awesome. We are looking through the local adds to see what we can afford. Hoping for an old "Chevy Van" that has been partially converted into a motor home. Gonna be living in it for quite a while I think.

Thank you :D

I found travel trailers on cl as low as a few hundred or free.

Also discovered my conditioned storage has minimal heat and ac, but is adequate when the doors are closed.
I may be using that while I house hunt.

I have considered a used box truck like an old u-haul that could be converted. Wouldn't be too fucking difficult to convert and they can sometimes be found cheap.

You need insulation though.

If I find rural land, my best reefer trailers will become living space, with shade added.
Even if I only use them during the worst weather, they should cost little to cool, and virtually nothing to heat.
Ice cream trailers.
They really are more comfortable than most people's homes.
Better built too.
Just narrow.

They were cheap until aluminum and steel shot up.
Still cheaper than anything you can build.

Actually worth looking at the housing market now, if you are going to be there a year or so.
Possible to find cheap and owner financed at times.
I don't want to buy, but rent is stupid expensive now, houses aren't.
May be different there.
This may sound overly optimistic, but might work for you.

Be sure to check local laws about parking.

Travel trailers were legal in the city here.
Not sure about now.

Check insurance, etc too.
Trying to sell a friend's box truck.
It may be costly to insure due to weight capacity, compared to a smaller one.
Make sure you don't have any surprizes.

Check class C rvs too.
There is an advantage to a trailer though.

At present I have no fucking place to park on a regular basis so I don't think a trailer will work. Gonna have to rotate through all the Walmart parking lots here. My work is not going to let me just park in their lot and stay there. Probably lose my job if they find out I am living in a car or even a motorhome.

You might be able to find someone in the area to help you out.

Maybe for a few bucks, maybe cause they want to, maybe they want their dogs watched or their place.

A lot of businesses need extra security.
I know one here that provides a small building near the gate.

Tricky, but you only have to find one.

Might find a trailer seller desperate enough or kind enough to make it part of the deal?
