Back, Finally!!


I just wanted to let everyone know I got back Ok. There were a few adventures along the way...

My return was delayed because my Van (Betsy) decided she needed a shiny new $400 water pump while traveling back over the Sierras. Fortunately I (barely) had cell phone service where she broke down (or I finally noticed as she threw enough belts for the power steering to go out), and used my AAA card to get towed into Colfax.

Before the whole breakdown thing, I got todfox, and Paradox to Reno. Looks like todfox caught the airport shuttle, and got home OK. As per instructions, I dropped Paradox off at University of Reno, where she figured would be the best "disembarking" point for the next leg of her journey (and she promised she would be OK).

Also in the Casino, the gambling gods were sort of with me... at one point in time I was up $300, but was looking to win more money, so it went back in the machines. The good news is I was smart enough NOT to lose any money, as I stopped when I broke even. At any rate, I had fun running around with Paradox that morning, in almost full playa gear, scaring the regular customers, and winning money.

That's about it for my trip home. I will definitely post my thoughts & and other revelations just as soon as I can sort them out. This was truely the BEST burn for me. Thanks all for being part of that experience.

There are a few leftovers, from the camp, and the trip home. Let me know how I can get these items back to you:
Todfox: My Van seems to have a left over hat, that looks quite a bit like yours :-). I think I also have a pair of white sox that are yours.
Paradox: Are you missing a pair of shoes?
Iceblink: I have a red air mattress pump that someone said might be yours.
dreamsoft: I have your pillow. Do you want it?

I'll let you know of other items as I find them. There were a few bottles of sunscreen, and other items that may or may not be worth sending back your way :-)

Take Care All!!!
