Because of Burning Man I Now...

Postby Jackass » Tue Jul 31, 2012 9:56 am

Keep more batteries in the refrigerator than food, and I refuse to throw stuff away until I am certain there is no possible way that it may be utilized for TTITD.

P.S. I now use single ply TP in the default as well, lasts way longer.

No matter where I'm going, I pack my socks and underwear in zip-lock bags......just in case.

I am also far more tolerant and accepting of canned beer.

I was already a border-line hoarder, so that hasn't changed.

Because of burning man I hoard quarter rolls of single ply tp all Summer.

It kind of just reinforced and justified all the weird shit I do normally (are we going somewhere where I can make a pack-list and then put all that stuff in bins and plastic? Good.) but now I feel better because I know there are at least a few thousand people out there just like me.

Spend hours rummaging through thrift stores, yard sales and flea markets, looking for that perfect outfit or any other semi-useless stuff that I can store indefinitely.
