Second year as a Black Rock Ranger, mostly worked Intercept and walked dirt shifts but I also helped out in HQ some too. Did not get to really go pre-event this year as my ten year old daughter was starting a new school and my presence was requested at home. Did stay a few days after the event which was awesome. On the last night in walk-in I slept with the tent windows open – no dust.
2013 Camped with the Snuggery Bunnies in the Nexicon Portal Camp at 4:00 and Extraterrestrial. My first year in an RV, very odd, super comfy. Very strange having a freezer on playa! Justin and I rode our matching bikes around and checked stuff out together. I did a few things as a regional like pull shift in Everywhere and help host a Bacon Fest social with the rest of the on playa North Bay Burners but mostly I played and did not work. It was fun, I still didn’t manage to see everything, and I went out more at night to clubs than I ever had. Came in Tuesday due to vehicle troubles and left early Monday morning after Temple burn.
