Heading out to the burn.... Back on September 10th. Be well. :)

Be careful out there.

I've been home a few days now, and have been getting my Burning man prep done. There is SO much to do still, and I leave for playa on the 26th(I think). I feel kind of strange saying this, but I think I really just want to stay home for a couple of weeks and hang out with my kitties before I take...

Your garden sounds awesome. Does it take a lot of maintenance with all of the vegetables and chilies you are growing?
voltaire:
@zombiebyte no not really, just water and weeding. 

My mouth hurts so fucking bad right now. I can't chew anything, and both my teeth and jaws HURT. But when this is over I'll have a really nice smile. That'll be worth it. SO worth it.

@rambo I normally don't hate the dentist, but I never want to have an appointment like that one ever again. I got eight fillings in one sitting. It was brutal.

No one likes their dentist.

I've been crazy busy lately, but loving it. The only thing is, It's kind of not stopping; I don't see it slowing down any time soon....

Look up Bill Coperthwaite he built amazing wooden yurts. These places are so cool. 
voltaire:
@ecobuilder I've seen his stuff; it's nice. But it's a lot more than I need. Also I back pack several miles frequently, so it isn't realistic for me. I've got a tent for each half of the year, and a ton of gear for all weather. Small and very simple is what works for me these days. 

I thought about it, and in order to protect the (not so) innocent, you are going to have to live with the explanation I provided yesterday for why I left. Telling the whole story would implicate people that cannot defend themselves, and that just isn't my style; it goes against my code of ethics completely.

dallas:
Glad to see you back 💖

I have a lot to say about why I left and why I chose to come back. I would like to chose my words though, so there are not a thousand questions. I can start by saying this, though: I didn't leave as part of the mass exodus. I just left at the same time. I don't regret it; it was good for...
