FUCK!!!

I made it a whole 14 miles to the burn and the engine made a clunk bang then died.
Had to have it, and the trailer, towed home, $240. Fuck.

I pulled 2 error codes with my scanner.
Mass airflow sensor signal low and camshaft sensor range error.
I tested the MAF with a meter and the bridge resistance is an order of magnitude beyond normal specs.
Haven't fucked with the fucking cam sensor yet.
I replaced the fucking MAF last month. The part has a 6 month warranty though. Good fucking thing, but, it can take up to a few days for the part to come in...

Today's not been good. I was gonna pull out at noon and did a quick check of the trailer tail lights. No fuckin workee! Literally had to tear out everything to remove the side benches to troubleshoot the wiring. It was so fucked up I had to run all new wire and install new tail light units. I went with fucking LED units cause thoem fuckers are bright and last forever.

When I was cutting some steel to make mounting brackets for 'em I got bit by yellow jackets THREE fucking times.

Fuck all that shit!

If the universe thinks it's gettin' me down, it's wrong!

I shall make it to the playa come hell or high water. I need to get rid of them t-shirts! :lol:


I'd never seen a tow truck tow a vehicle and its trailer at the same time. The driver showed me a photo on his phone of when he towed a Ford F-450 crew cab longbed with a 38 foot trailer behind it!!!

Oh shit Foxfur!

I was coming on here with my own FUCK! Apparently I left home with the only mailbox key. Can't exactly mail home another... Has to be a way it gets delivered to the door. Maybe UPS?

But my fuck isn't nearly as bad as yours. Ive limped onto the playa, figuring I'd deal with the issue once the burn was over. Actually, that year the van started acting up 10 miles from home. I figured if I had to, I'd put on the blinkers and drive up at 35 mph, the speed at which the shuddering in the steering wheel started. But it was an intermittent problem and cleared up. I only had to pull over a few times (twice on 447) to try got get to to stop. but it started up in empire and I putzed in at 30 mph from there.
I'm not a slut, I'm good time floozy!

I've poured a cup or two of gasoline in underground wasp burrows, wonder if a rag soaked in gas or turpentine would work if you put a bucket over the hole. Also used mint oil + detergent + water in a spray bottle for wasps crowding around on fallen apples & pears. Good hunting.

Oh, this is what this thread is for...

Foxfur -- FUCK!

Here's a fuck opportunity I missed this weekend before I knew what this thread was:
FUCK -- Enterprise said they cancelled all truck reservations because they're "selling their fleet"!
Update as of yesterday: Convinced them to give us a truck anyway. W00t! Back in bidness.

It's doesn't sound like your MAP sensor - (that sits next to the air filter and tells the ECM air flow/temp) NOPE, dont waste your $$$$$ on a new sensor (even unplugged your engine will still run on default settings BUT not as well)

get down to Oakland NOW!!!!

FUCK!!!!! FUCKFUCKITY_FUCK_FUCKerfuck-fuckensteinablyfuckedout-fuckedover-fucking kidding? WHAT THE HOLY LIVING DUSTY ....FUCK!!!

This going to Burningman shit is getting weird-
Im not going to get into it but its my 13th and its more awkward now than ever- and it dont matter how glued to the principles I am - the more I live off the fucking playa- the more harsh the subsequent default enviorment gets

I prefer fucking Dust- to Fucking dustless
Fucking Wack Jobs to Fucking Norms
Fucking eating pudding with my fingers- drinking fucking water clipped to a utility belt and wasting time on FUCKING E-Snarky to
Fucking around doing other shit drinking from a glass or using a fucking eound SPOON
AND SPEAKING OF FUCKING SPOONZ
what the FUCK ever happened to SPOON RETURN?

Be sure to follow the tsa suggestions to arrive five hours early for your flight and for fucks sake look american.


In spite of the fucking airline service, pretend we don't all look like terrorists when we get on.

Just act like it's normal to wear an aquapak, a flak vest, four boots and five coats on a plane.

security was actually pretty good...all they did was "test" my [fucking] hoop bag...not sure for what.

And we are going to wear the exact same clothing so yeah...we may get [fucking] looks...

Fuck. My car overheated today and started smoking and I got a fix-it ticket from the CHP. Car is in a dealers shop. Word tomorrow if it can be fixed... bummer. I may not make it this year, but I'm trying... :x

Fucking good news and fucking bad news. Bad water pump was putting out steam which was melting off crud and oil from outside engine. Steam not smoke. hot engine was burning oil but I was ahead of loss , I would not have made it through the Feather River Canyon on Highway 70. I was fucking lucky to have the CHP stop me... Car might be fixed Wednesday, so I still have a chance for delayed entry... :roll:
