There are numerous busloads throughout the week, and it's more than just seniors, and they come from more than just the towns you pass between Reno and the playa.


Thank you Trilo for using the term "seniors". A much nicer term! :D

Did you make them role around in the dirt?

Or were they veteran tourists?

Gate and greeters both smell the same, the only difference is one of the groups wears sensible shoes and hates the color purple.

I was working at DMV and saw one of these bus loads arrive, they were in playa wear except no dust and it was Saturday!!!! All ages were there. I thought I was seeing things, but was working and hadn't drank anything for a few hours. Really made me feel weirder than usual! :shock:

When I was in Equador I had the hardest time with the people around me eating ceviche. They kept eating the popcorn with their hands, like goons.

It goes IN the soup.

POPCORN GOES IN THE SOUP.

GOONS!

My girlfriend's mother died the night the man burned. She was a bit frail with three separate rare heart defects, but kooky and funny. I think she would have gotten a kick out of Black Rock City but would have trouble with the climate for a whole week. If there was a way for her to see it before she died, I wouldn't have an issue with her arriving in a motor coach like the other old folks.

She liked art, shiny things, blinking lights and weird shit. She used to be a non-scary clown and knew how to make balloon animals. She had a parking meter in her living room (now in my kitchen). The night she died was the only time I thought of her and the only time I thought "Lynda would appreciate this."

I left before the temple burn for a funeral in West Texas. I happen to find out about the wifi near Media Mecca where I volunteered and checked messages.

So the bus loads of tourists are ok with me.

Sorry to hear about Lynda passing away, Brian. Sounds like she had a fun life here on the big blue marble.
