Paddler Lost Paddle

Post by Velvetina Paddler » Tue Sep 02, 2014 9:44 pm

So Friday afternoon sometime, while traveling down the streets 8:45 & B to 8:16 & G, my beloved by many Paddle slipped from my backpack and was lost on the playa. I was crushed, I mean to be a paddler with out a paddle is like going to burning man without a single white out experience, just not right... anyhow, I was hoping maybe by magic someone reading this might have seen someone with it and can spread the words I'd love to get it back. It has been apart of my gifting to burners for 11 of my 13yrs on the playa. I'll believe in true magic if it gets returned.

What's this for at BRC? The playa, formerly Lake Lahontan, dried up 9000 years ago.

Well some of us even bring boats. And life jackets.

I assume the paddling this lady does is less about boats and more about butts. ;)

If you've lost your paddle, does that mean you're automatically up shit creek? :P

I'm sorry, but we're going to have to rescind that title until you find a new paddle.

Ygmir, my camp-mates were not so quick to save me from great peril. In fact I'm quite sure they took great delight in me spinning the wheel of sin (or whatever it was called), hitting a 2X and then a 7. I suppose I had many sins to pay for...
