Roll Call: Preppin' instead of Ragin'

Postby RedHeaven » Sat Aug 11, 2012 8:38 pm

It's Saturday night, Random Rab, a DJ I happen to really love is playing a pre burner party in town. (Nevada City) Normally I would never miss it, but before Burning Man it is so important that I get substantial rest and prep time.....Saving the Mojo so to speak.....Been doing this for years, however being 40 does make it more important.....goodness my oh me

I just want some eplaya snark to keep me company tonite while I make STICKERS and sip sauvignon blanc very modestly. Bring it on

Can't wait to meet more of you. I've met Weatherman Joe, Ygmir, Ugly Dougly and a few others.

Who else keeps their mid summer focused and mellow to prep for that long wonderful week or 2?

Or do you prep by PUTTING ON PARTY LAYERS? :mrgreen:

I skip everything the last few months before playa.

I use the time and money for getting the rv ready. Plus, summer is the busy time of year for contractors in socal.
Drugs may take you down the road to nowhere, but at least its the scenic route.

tell me about it...get it off your chest! I'm a prof. event planner...always missed this time of year, but have been fortunate enough to have extremely empathetic employers my whole life.... Thru my event planning/catering experience, i HAVE STILL A GIFTED SURPLUS OF FORKS...THEY ARE CHEAP (QUALITY-WISE), BUT HAVE THOUSANDS, IN CASE ANYONE IS INTERESTED!

I've been out in the garage painting things, while choking on this damn 'Chips fire' smoke...How's the smoke over there in GV?

I did! in the old northwest. Off of Keystone by the Raleys. It's a cute little cottage with a nice big finished basement and was built in 1953, so it's got some cool quirk. The backyard is nice and green and shady. I grew up in that area so yep I'm coming home.

I'm gonna miss the night sky out here and my pool, will definetly miss the pool but not the summer elec bill...

Congratulations! I bet it's a beautiful house, with easy access to downtown area.
I am so excited for you :)

It's funny- I'm a San Francisco girl, born and raised. Spent my summers at gramma's lake-side home in northwestern Montana. LOVED it there, but NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE THINKING LIKE I AM THESE DAYS... thought I was urban, period. Now I just want to buy that land in montana, go veg, grow some stuff, keep Goats as pets, & ask them for their milk to make delicious delicious goatmilk products (but be respectful if the answer is 'no'), eat wild berries, raise a family- in a community of like-minded people.... HOLY F*CK! Have I turned from a chain-swinging punk rocker into a full-fledged Hippie?!?!?! (still hate patchouli & tie-dye- don't care for "The Grateful Dead" very much, not a fhish, or however they spell it, fan. Does this save me???!?!?!?!

if I had lots of money I would love to live in San Francisco...

I've been wanting to move back to reno for a long time now, but sometimes I think I might just miss the countryside a teeny bit :mrgreen:
