Wendover, NV – I’m Bill Murray and this is Groundhog Day

Monday morning: We heard back from BJ at State Trailer Supply this morning. They don’t have any of our axles in stock, so we need to special order it and it won’t be here until September 24th. That means we’re stuck here for 10 days, if we go with them. We got the info for […]

Salt Lake City – a different kind of pilgrimage

The town of Wendover is split right down the center. The casino side is in Nevada, the seedier side is in Utah. We’re about a block from Nevada here. Harold just pointed out to me that we’re now in mountain time, but a block up the road it’s Pacific time. So which 10am did the […]

Wendover, NV – Triple A We have a problem

We’re halfway between Elko, NV and Salt Lake City, UT. It’s a gorgeous afternoon, we’re sailing along, still gliding on the high of the previous week. Harold looks into his rear view mirror and says, very casually, “We may have a problem back there.” “What kinda problem? What’s going on?” I question him. He’s so […]

Burning Man – It’s burn the big guy Saturday!

Tonight is the big night! The man is gonna be burned to the ground! But more on that later. It’s also “Socially Appropriate Eat-With-Your-Mouth-Open Day”. Did you know that the more oxygenated your food is, the better you taste it? That’s why ice cream tastes better with a fork than a spoon. I experimented with […]

Burning Man – It’s hang out at home Friday

After the most amazing, perfect day that was yesterday, it was appropriate that today should be a quieter, relax, and recover day. The PantyDome across the way had an unadvertised Panty give-away party. They had hundreds of new-in-the-package panties and they were giving them away to passers-by along with a vodka punch. We ended up making […]

Burning Man – It’s Can’t Say No Thursday

Today is Socially Appropriate Menstruation Day – “Wear white pants with no underwear. Let the blood make it’s artistic mark!” Okay, yeah, there is no way I will ever be this free. Today is also Can’t Say No Thursday – “Say Yes to everything asked of you today and be amazed where it takes you!” I said an […]

Burning Man – It’s Official Life Profit Wednesday

Today is Official Life Profit Day – “Today’s the day to do something you’ve never done before. Then get in the habit of breaking routine  the rest of the year. Cheers to a memorable life!” I’m totally on board with this! The thing that kills my life is when I get into too much of […]

Burning Man – It’s tutu Tuesday!

On Tuesday, we’re a little sluggish and slow to get going. I go through the book, write a bunch of events down, ready our backpacks with water and supplies and eventually, we’re off. This is my lunchtime list. It’s just a small portion of the events available at that time. Just the one’s that most appeal […]

Burning Man 2015 – Where do we start?

When they took our tickets on the way in, they gave us a book and a map. The book is our guide to Burning Man. It details all the events going on (well, all those that made it into the book. We’ll find many others during the week that never made it in) on a […]

Reno is Burning Man central

I’d read that it was a good idea to buy everything you need well before you hit Reno since 70,000 people descending on the town at once can decimate the stock they have there. That was obviously advice from a few years back. Turns out Reno is more than ready for all the heathens and […]
