Wagon train

Getting to the playa by planes, trains and automobiles, or maybe your a hitchhiking hippie.

We are sitting here in a total whiteout on gate road! Nobody is moving. But amazingly I chatted with Kowtow on the radio! I did a shout-out trying to get Chuck and Kowtow answered. He was VERY faint (on a hand talkie I think), but he sounded happy and jammin!!!! Playadipity!!!

Chuck and Sadie came in to BRC late last night, weathered some insane weather conditions, and are now holding down the campsite. You guys rock!

Drive safe, Mel!

There are some MAJOR gate delays, so come prepared for a wait. Water and snacks within reach!

THANK YOU for the K-cups. Burning without coffee would have been grim!
I dont know howi brought two boxes of decaf <--- facepalm.

Now we are heading back. Followed Vyn and Melon to Fernley. Dinner, showers, new wardrobe from Walmart.

Parted company this morning. They headed north.
We will be in Las Vegas tonight and then part again. I have a plane to catch, Grey is going to wander. :)
