No full moon this year, it falls on the 24th of august so it should be really dark out there this year....except for the 360 degree carnival of a million wonders :shock:
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...

Meat, seared, rare but not cold.

A thick rib-eye steak or lamb.

Lamb shank medium, well salted.

On day three anything loaded with omega3 fatty acids. Most of those foods are caned or durable like nuts and seeds so I already have all those.

Last year I was craving a grilled cheddar on sourdough bread sandwich with butter and mayo. Seemed everybody else in my camp craved burgers.

Oh man, I'm craving one of those already :D !

Where's the best place to get fast food burgers before entering the playa? Maybe I can pick up some grilled cheeses for the ovo-lacto veggies out there. Thanks again for all of the feedback!

Any cooked/fried meat product: cheeseburgers, bacon, chicken, jerky, etc, YUMMM :D ! Was going out into the Thursday night last year, and about 20 feet from camp a lady gave me and a friend strip-steak shishkabobs hot from the grill---was the meatier version of a child wolfing down an ice-cream bar :lol:

It seems to vary by year for me, which makes it hard to plan for. First year craving was V8 juice. Second year craving was IHOP pancakes and omelettes. Can't wait to see what this year brings...

Fresh, crisp green salad. With fresh tomatoes. And cukes, and non-gooey avocado, and green onions, and anything else I can put on it thats cold and crunchy. Like fresh, chilled prawns.

Ice cold Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. In a bottle.

Krispy Kreme Donuts. One of our Kamp founders brought some up when he had to make a town run back in 05. Paradiso.

Someplace cold and quiet. And dust free.

Time off work, so I could do an extra 4 weeks on the playa with DPW...

I like to save my leftover coffee from the morning ( pop it in the cooler ) & offer iced coffee to my "jonesing" buddies in the afternoon. Perhaps add a little kaluah & a butter cookie. ( ok,, I sound like a dork here. )

I've tried frozen grapes, never liked them. I don't think the playa will change that. But eh, weirder stuff has happened.

Post by xhoosier » Thu Jul 01, 2010 9:24 pm

just that issue with keeping things cold. I guess i give priority to beer and water but I may try to make a little dry ice freeze just for the grapes! :)

Ice-cold pitted Spanish green cocktail olives...Trader Joe's got 'em...

Technically, I don't miss them, 'cause I bring them with me.

Okay, you can keep your frozen olives and fruit but I think I will miss snuggles.

I guess. I love snuggles though. Snuggle while you watch a movie, snuggles as you watch the sunset, snuggles as you fall asleep, and ever morning snuggles. I'm a snuggler. Can't help it. I'm not sure if I yet though feel comfortable walking up to a stranger and asking him/her to snuggle. Somehow I think they will think I'm asking for sex.

interestingly, probably not on the playa......if you just ask for a snuggle, or, offer one..........

I've gotten some of the best hugs and such of my life out there.........

was I aroused by the 6' blond 20 something womens hockey player for U of W? as she stood there nude, asking if I'd like a hug, and, when I said "yes", jumped up and wrapped her legs around me and squeezed my neck, and waist at once.

yes.

did I in any way misconstrue that to mean she wanted sex, with an old codger such as myself?

No,

I just held her there, enjoyed the few moments, and, said "thank you" as she left....
