Before the Burn 2006 I was hanging out, with one of my favorite friends on Lake Berryesa...
His friend decided he wanted to go to the BURN with me-soooooo I canceled other plans to come home to BRC.
We rented a Van (I gave him 500 dollars toward van rental let alone all the food and booze I went in on and the gas there) Drove from Sonoma CO. Got there set up camp-lost my camp, found where I always camp and BRC buddies-moved camp over to their area.
He stayed two days and walked between the two camps; using their bathrooms-NEVER EVEN making to one of the portapottie or to the end of the street, or out to see the man or any ART or anything. So I come back from a bike ride and he is packed up and ready to go. (if I wouldn't have come back to camp right THEN he would have been GONE) I still have stuff in the Van (this includes money I have hidden in VAN) he is gonna leave me WITH EVERYTHING and NO RIDE his bike my bike coolers big water bottles.
I HAVE NEVER FOUND MY SHIT AND PACKED A VAN QUICKER IN MY LIFE.
I was soooooo glad to have him leaving. IN ALL MY RUSH thinking how I'm gonna store food and water. I forget the most important real world thing money. ( I like to mention here that I DON't have CC cards and never have-and the guy of course didn't find my money in van)
SOOOOOOO I have to find a ride back to life and don't have any MONEY TO OFFER FOR GAS. Had my ride drop me off at the Sac. train Station where I had to wait HOurs for my other friend to come get me. (I looked like I was homeless- all covered in dust with ALL MY stuff LOL)
ANd ya Know What SUCKS about the whole thing -is that GUY who left me went back and talked a bunch of shit to my other friends wife and now HE'll Never ever get to GO to Burning Man.
