No its really not that far in distance but without a job I can't afford the fuel. Saving my nickles and dimes to pay for fuel to the burn and back

I've had a few bugs with that option.

okay then I learned .. if you begin to rust

move chassis forward to avoid dust..and always have spare Tr's for parts.

according to the internet saying "i need to murder somebody" in the shower is not normal behaviour. my whole life may need replanning. also really annoyed that i cant get to the hof party or ranger training on the playa on the 6th july (guns included)

hey Triken!! I thought you guys were leaving early.....hahahaa. seeya later today? we'll have a good signal fire going, so, look above the road if it's dark. I'll put signs out, too.

Hi MDF!! Thanks for the fun wishes. and safe travels, to you! we'll be splitting some nice seasoned black oak for your stove, and if we don't get the bag full, I'll put chunks in that can be split on site. Splitting should not make much moop at all, not like sawing. And, if you use a chisel, even less moop.

Dang, GD!! wish you could make it, for the party and Ranger (really? a ranger?, I see you as Gayte crew, meaner, smarter, edgier......)

Yes, if you get to the hof after dark, wait for your eyes to adjust some, and look for the lighter glow in the sky up the driveway, and walk towards that. Do not be distracted by lights on tents, these will lead you further away from your goal. Walk towards the glow. "Don't follow the lights!"

Safe travels and best wishes for everyone going to the Hof. I'd consider it an honor if someone raised a glass in my general direction (to the east) and had one for me.

Hey, Rhino, will raise a glass or two to you and all the others who will be with us in spirit. Should be a great weekend! At the Hof it always is!!! See all you Hof Timers tomorrow! I'll be using a YG hand drawn map from a couple of years ago to navigate our way.

Bittersweet weekend. I'm finishing the primary cuts on ziggurat parts today (though there is still lots to do) and getting something akin to an honor at a thing this weekend, the timing of said thing dashed my hopes of getting to The Hof. Have a drink or three for Pandorra and I.

In other news, we got a new prescription for our cat's ridiculously expensive medication. This time it's a chicken-flavored drops thing (instead of pills), but to no one's surprise he's neither fooled nor amused.

Heh Heh ... watch out. How the hell are you unjon? Things are busy around here.

I'm at the house alone tonight. Karine is out of town with family so I'm probably going to hang out for a bit here. In and out you know... as I go on adventures.

Hi ho hi ho, it off to Hof we go!


Damn a Hof party, eh? I've toyed with the idea of two flights to Reno and meeting up with people out there for a long weekend.
