After Burner

Post by geospyder » Fri Jun 12, 2015 1:53 pm

Monkey hut, tent, bike, etc. gone. So it is now official. I am an "After Burner". Fabulous memories, made lots of friends, great experiences, definitely expanded my boundaries - now it's time to move on. Never say never - who knows what the future holds but as of now - no more Burning Man.

Oh no!

Ahhhh - that felt good. Got a couple real (non-virtual) hugs this morning from a couple local Burners that benefited from me gifting out some of my gear.

I just received a phone call from one of my daughters. She knows how much Burning Man means to me and when she read my post on FB she was worried that I was sick :D

So sorry to hear this, but only you can decide what is best for you.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

Our new inspirational quote is from Susan Sontag who said "I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list". Last semi-official count we've heard is there are 196 countries in the world. By the end of this year we will have visited 68 countries so we have a long way to go :D

So close yet so far away. We were within 20 miles of Bowman Lake this last weekend. We were camping at Malakoff Diggins.
