im not sure about adding the stress of traveling/survivin the weather on top of this at this point.. feeling like not bothering to go out to the dust

perhaps i should give it a day or so to sink in.. before i decide.. but not much time left before i need to decide.. plane leaves thursday at like 7am.. would need to mail out some documents so they arrive on the playa with someone else if i decide no..

if i get out there and im not feeling it its hard for me to get home again... with no car and relying on rideshares...

just feelin real crappy and the idea of rushin around to make up the past 4 days ive missed isnt looking to good right now..

I got the last of that fucking 30 pounds of turkey deboned and put in the frig, I'll start putting it in baggie sized portions tomorrow. Water jugs cleaned and filled, hope I do not get a particle bloom like 3 years ago... I hope I can fit all that fucking pile of camping stuff in my car. Fuck, I'm tired of prepping !

Fuck! I'm leaving Thursday afternoon; so the sun will be at my back, and I'll be hitting Nevada in the cool of the evening. I'll be reststop camping Friday and Saturday, hitting Reno during the day... :roll:

Oh lemur......

the temple might be the best place for you.

The only companion I've ever put down was hours from dying as it was and in excruciating pain. I built a 200 ft fence when I was utterly broke, rather than having to put down my dog because she would get out and was severely aggressive towards passersby.

My constant companion is 21 years old. I've had him since he was born-literally-stray adopted mama cat was pregnant. I've been preparing myself for his end since he was 16 and got cancer. He is one onery old guy, and very weak and frail. I was about to leave earlier this year for two weeks back east and he started going into decline, but it turned out to be an infection from a cat scratch. He responded to the antibiotics and was getting better when I left, and got daily updates from my bf. He's on prednosone daily, and every time I see him sleeping, I check to see if he's breathing.

I wonder too about what might happen when I'm in BRC. I went through the depression thing yesterday when, after the can thing, I had to go to social security to deal with a major fuckup concerning a person I was payee for 7 years ago. It was a useless waste of time and dealing with the bureacracy put me in tears. Wouldn't talk to me because I'm NOT the payee now, but will come after me for 19k she doesn't owe since I WAS the payee when she got back pay.

When I see you in BRC, biggggg hugs.
I'm not a slut, I'm good time floozy!

Fuck. I lost my job Friday at the end of the work day. I thought that they would have waited until after the busiest week that they have all year, and was hoping I could get them to decide not to fire me in the meanwhile. I'm getting too old for this.

Fuck for all the shit we fucking have to wade through. Fuck for Lemur, and fuck for BAS, and Stretch, and MA.

I was really worried about how things would turn out, and whether time would run out, or what was going to happen. Then it just wore me down, and I only did the thing I had to do at the moment. Sometimes we cannot make plans, we just have to see what happens, and try to prepare if we can. I fell asleep at my desk the other night, woke up at 6:00Am, slept about 14 hours straight. I've got a lot to get done in the next week. Now I'm trying to just do the best I can. I stop when it starts to fray, check my gut, and see if I can go forward. Fucking packed up my mother's things today. Tomorrow we load it all up and cram it into my garage. My sister is an awesome partner to me in this. A fucking awesome partner.

Jeez this has been so shitty for so many of us lately. I wish you all the best. Hang on there.

((Lemur)) My baby went that way. I had her since I was 5. She was 24 when I had to put her down. She had a good long life for a cat, but it still wrecked me. It's been years and I still have not been able to get another cat. She was my pet for my almost my entire life. I know how it feels. Do what you need to for your kitty and then do what you need to for yourself.

((MA)) Keep up with the disability people and see what they can do to push it through. Also call your credit union directly and explain what is going on. They may be able to help you from their side by sending an account verification to your disability and also releasing the money immediately once it has been transferred versus the usual holding period. Good luck hon!

I had a cat that had been a stray for a long time.
Showed up at my house and adopted me.
He looked tough as could be, but had clearly been cared for at some point.
Wanted affection more than food.
A very sweet tempered cat.
He's the one that ate every squirrel in the area.
Had a crazy black and white patchwork pattern all over, including his face.
Once he was sick and it damaged his vocal cords somehow.
After that he purred like a tiger kitten, growly.

He got feline leukemia and the treatment finally started to fail.
Kidney failure, I'm told.
I took care of him for a month until he died.
He was pretty comfortable until the last day, I think.

A good cat.

Went back to Mom's and back into the ManCave to look for the fucking rainfly. And found it in the bin I'd told her I wasn't going to need.

*facepalm*

Did I mention that MY FUCKING TENT STAKES were in that same bin?

*epic facepalm*

(And I've decided I'm taking both fucking tents with me. If there are enough people around willing and able to help when I get there, I'll go with the bigger one.)

Spent 5 grand to get the transmission replaced on my Audi. Then the transfercase goes and cost me another $1200. FUCKING FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK. At least I get to ride to the burn in comfort but FUCK was that painful. If something breaks down on the way to the burn I'll have it towed to Butte and blown up.

Well I found a fucking van. It is an 86 chevy allegro. Don't have enough to get but I am going to see if they will hold it. Likely they will want to sell right away and finance which will put it out of my range. but it can't hurt to fucking ask.

Many thanks to all of you who have donated. Without your help I wouldn't even be able to look. Let's hope they will hold it or make some kind if deal.

There seem to be more than one version of those.
I found them from $750-7000.
Typical.

I hope you're checking rv forums.

Have you thought of asking about stuff people are bringing to the burn, but don't want to keep?
Foreigners are often in thie position.
Even better, some people have stored rvs in the area, and no longer want them.

Check areas outside your immediate area, if you aren't now.
Prices vary a lot.

Check racing sites too.
Lot of cargo and rv stuff.
Often well cared for.
