Patsh
Still not decided where we'll be camped, though it'll likely be one of 2 usual spots.
Last year your usual spot was a placed camp. I'll find you.

We pulled out the pair of 15 x 20 Aluminet tarps and tied them together on the 20 foot side, giving us a 30 x 20 foot shade layer for the monkey hut (at half the cost of a single huge piece). Then we threaded paracord all along the outer edges for bungee cording to the frame.

Also finished soldering up my neopixels and programming the board for my blinky hat. Next step is to assemble the hat and solder the wires in.

I love Bri-bot 3000!

Confirmed ticket and EA for myself and my pops, who will be burning for the first time this year. He's ready to work, and to understand why I spend all my vacation time in Nevada instead of visiting the family...
When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

Yay. Heater and air conditioner fixed in my van. It broke because of excessive dust in the blower motor. How did that happen?

Sewing like crazy to fix shade structure decor. Next up....Playa laundry. I can't be the only one that unpacks a bin of playa.

Booked a swanky spa suite at the Peppermill for exodus. I've been wanting to do this for years, now I am finally going to get to do it!

Today I dragged out a couple of boxes and inventoried, sorted, packed, and checked (and replaced) batteries. I'm now covered in dust :D :D
