emily, will you be covering your lovely purple hair with a hat?
I will cover my purple head with lots of things, hats, wigs, a Shemagh, tiaras, hopefully not food, and definitely playa dust.

Lip balm
Eyedrops (2)

Tiny notepad
Pens (2)
Bandanna
Goggles*
Sunglasses
ID

Sunscreen
Small gifts
Travel toothbrush & paste
Personal sanitizer on a caribeener

camera (bag, film, battery)
sharpies (2)

Collapsible cup
Stainless Canteen (32 oz)
. . . Optional: Secondary small canteen with beverage (12 oz)
Bottle opener
Jerky or Luna bars

Glow bracelets
Small flashlights (2+)
Baby wipes
Sandwich bags
Moop bag
1-ply t.p.

CPR mask, bandaids, tape, Neo-to-Go, gloves

All of this is surprisingly compact. The cup, CPR mask, bottle opener, sanitizer, & 1 of the flashlights are clipped to the outside w/ caribeeners. Sometimes the goggles ride there, too. And at night, I leave out the sunglasses & sunscreen and often times the camera as well. I'm totally going to steal that trick of putting an address label on it this year.

I used to avoid carrying the goggles at night, but thank goodness I had them last year on burn night. That sudden storm was epic!

VCG, I'm impressed. I'm impressed, and just a bit stumped by the anchovies. I can't figure it out as a drink ingredient. Is it for a snack?

It's a weapon. If a creep is getting too close she can bean him with it, or open it and smear the poor, helpless fish on him.

@Ellorum:

They are a delicious, delicious snack. A very small tin of incredibly delicious and magical anchovies...they are an amazing snack. They are filled with fatty acids, salt, and protein!! :D

Wander about. Hmm...

I'm forming a new camp this year and want to keep in touch with some of my old campmates. I've already put out the word to them: Tuesday at sundown at Boobie (or is that Booby) Bar in Terminal City. I'm gonna' gift 'em another bottle of Oregon's own Crater Lake vodka, that should start it out.

Anyone else in...?

Tuesday is RAIDERS NIGHT @ BB, so you better bring gifts if you want on the list to get in the actual bar.

Oooo.. that list is kinda tricky. Cfm will be handling Raider's Night at the Booby Bar so sucking up to her is a good start.

Well, if I, and my friends, can't get in, I guess we'll just find another bar to meet up in. Or go on Wednesday. Booby Bar, will you be open on Wednesday night...? I was just trying to pick a place I like that would be easy to find.

Those nutcases will be open every night of the burn.

Ropes? I can see ropes here in my own neighborhood. But I guess I can walk around the outside and enjoy the distinctive architecture? And maybe get a chance to say hi at the M&G. I'd love to meet you all, anyway.

I wanna' put this in perspective. Booby Bar is one my favorite on the playa. I have friends in other camps that I want to see and it is hard to find people on the playa. Sometimes, most times, impossible. All I want to do is meet them. Booby Bar can do what they want; it's their bar. I have absolutely no problem with that. I'll just pick another time, because I still want to go there, or another place if we decide we want to get together on that night. I still plan to gift them a nice bottle, because I like the place and they have been very generous with me. Read: they give me booze and put up with me when I get drunk. Good folks, all.

I just want to know if I can meet my friends there on Tuesday night, or should I schedule it for Wednesday?

Long live the Booby Bar!
