Friday, August 20, 2021  – World Mosquito Day
National Radio Day!
(“Testing, testing.”)

Raise awareness about illness and disease caused by mosquitos!
Mosquitoes cause more death & disease than any other animal on the planet!
 
Malaria, Dengue, Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis, West Nile Chickungunya, Kunjin Jamestown Canyon Virus, Zika, Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, St Loius Encephalitis, Pogostra Disease, Ross River Virus, Lymphatic Filariasis, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Murray Valley Encephalitis, Rift Valley Fever, Lacrosse Encephalitis, and the list goes on.
On this day in 1897, Sir Ronald Ross discovered the malaria parasite
in the stomach tissue of a female Anopheles mosquito.

“what a long, strange trip it’s been”

7:20am: We got a pursuit on the 605 Freeway this morning! 
Guy hit 120mph. The chase didn’t last long.
He got off the freeway and drove down a cul-de-sac,
foot-bailed and ran through a couple backyards, jumping fences,
and out onto another cul-de-sac where he ran into the police.
He surrendered. Suspect in custody.

We took the dogs outside. And now we have to do the morning stuff.
We’re already running late today, and we really don’t have anything to do.

After becoming a cult science fiction comedy series on BBC Radio, "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams

On this day in 1920, the first commercial radio station,
8MK (now WWJ), began operating in Detroit!
And the National Football League (NFL) is organized as the
American Professional Football Conference in Canton, Ohio!

Breaking Entertainment News! What is “You Ain’t Got No Job?”
Screen Shot 2021-08-11 at 15.45.14
Mike Richards resigned this morning as “Jeopardy” host after one day of production, and currently remains Executive Producer. The ADL is calling for an investigation into Richard’s past remarks about Jews, women, and Asians, as well as his involvement with “The Price Is Right” sexual harassment history. Sony Pictures Television has cancelled production, until a new Host decision can be made.

11:10am: Watching President Joe Biden’s press conference on Afghanistan.
Joe just gave them the soundbite. “The buck stops here, it was my decision”
TOTAL FAIL. And this press conference is a TOTAL FAIL too.
MORE DISTRACTION FROM THE TRUMP AND THE GOP TRAITORS.
AND WTF? NO MAKEUP? AND DON’T LET JOE BIDEN GO OFF SCRIPT!

We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We drank a double iced espresso. We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
We got busy in the kitchen for a little bit. Makin’ Bacon:

And we took the dogs outside again.
The exterminator was here.
They were barking like good watchdogs.
And the roofers are almost finished across the street.
It’s a beautiful day. We were going to run errands…..
But now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office again. 

TravelAlert-614x201

Bad weather? Missed Flight? Travel Emergency? COVID-19?

TRAVEL ALERT!
American Airlines extends alcohol ban in Coach class into 2022.
And Southwest Airlines still has an alcohol ban in place.
SOUTHWEST AIRLINES APOLOGIZED TODAY FOR
SCHEDULE CHANGES AND CANCELLATIONS LAST WEEK. HAHAHAHA!
We’re laughing because it’s ridiculous to apologize for TOTAL FAILURE.

The US extended the ban on non-essential travel to Canada until September 21.
And so the US-Canada Border remains closed to travelers for the near future.

HURRICANE HENRI (Category 1) IS ON THE EAST COAST!
Going to suck in New England, so don’t go there.

COVID-19 ANXIETY RISING IN THE US DUE TO DELTA VARIANT SURGE.
Hospital ICUs in Alabama are at 100%. Major outbreaks in southern states.
Texas hospitals are overwhelmed too. 

Los Angeles and Orange County are sending kids back-to-school in classrooms.
WTF? THERE IS NO REAL EFFORT TO STOP THE VIRUS FROM SPREADING!

Fun Fact:
The Kilauea Volcano adds 42 acres to the Big Island Hawaii every year!

12:15pm: It’s Friday Afternoon.

NOTE: We got dressed and ready to go run our errands
and then got hit by the “Friday Fuckits”…. and we didn’t do anything.
None of our errands was urgent except the going to the market to get food.
But we got some food for tonight, and the market is open until ~1:00am.
We got undressed again and spent the afternoon with the dogs.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ (nappy time)

6:20pm: We woke up. We made a double iced espresso.
We ate another toasted bagel with cream cheese.
We prepped the dogs’ supper. Now it’s time to feed the dogs.

7:05pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside. Supper+snacks+carrot = Happy Pups!
We drank that double iced espresso down. Now it’s Friday night.
Another week – HOT SUMMER DAYS and COVID-19. This sucks.
We are so unmotivated right now…. almost nothing matters.
DON’T GET SICK. DON’T DIE. (StayTheFuckHome!)

8:30pm: Friday night. Nothing happening.
Just listening/watching LIVE MUSIC this evening.

Fucking Facebook thinks I’m in Tucson….

We woke around 1:30am. We were up until about 4:00am.
“SLEEP IS FOR SISSIES.” – but insomnia sucks.

8:50am: Woken up by the dogs barking before 8:00am. FUCK.
We drank a cup of espresso. Saturday morning again.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. The newspapers got got.

11:35am: We made Saturday brunch. The mail got got.
On The Menu: Toasted bagel with lox, cream cheese and Persian cucumber;
dill pickle, carrot sticks, pita chips, strawberries, and an iced espresso to drink
236199413_5055372497822609_7777992513279607395_n

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZ NappyTime with the Dogs.

4:20pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up. We made an iced espresso.
We worked on this Blog Post.
We watched a few episodes of “Fluffy’s Food Adventures” on Amazon Prime.
Gabriel Iglesias is hilarious. And they eat a whole lot of great food.

On this day in 1911, the Mona Lisa (painted by Leonardo da Vinci) was stolen from the
Louvre Museum by three Italian handymen; it was not recovered until 1913.

9:45pm: And Saturday night. Recapping Saturday evening.
We ordered dinner. We got dressed and drove over to pick it up.
We drove home and ate dinner. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.

On The Menu: CPK (California Pizza Kitchen) takeout.
BBQ Chicken salad w/avocado (full size), and a Hawaiian pizza w/pepperoni, no ham.
And cran-raspberry-orange juice to drink. And then another iced espresso.
We ate the salad at 7:00pm and saved the pizza for later tonight.
239764903_5056150741078118_7126054955628848107_n

First, Don’t try to order online. The website is a mess. We telephoned the order in.
But we got sent to a voice message system…. high volume, long wait.
So, we called the other restaurant too, and it was the same deal.
and then chose the option to have them call us back.
So, someone called us back, from a third party service, not the restaurant. 
and they took our order and then placed our order with the restaurant. WTF?
We joined the CPK Rewards Card too. So, we should be getting a BONUS too.
And we want to make sure we get credited reward points for this order.
And all we wanted was dinner. SO COMPLICATED. Technology is not your friend.

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK
And of course, it’s National Senior Citizens Day too.
240106171_10159488638919493_3564931364957214204_n

Dinner was good. 
We watched TV, we surfed the internet, we worked on this Blog Post,
and we watched YouTube vids and Livestreams! Fun. Fun. Fun.

Screen Shot 2020-03-28 at 14.33.51

There was a Saturday backyard party on the corner of our street with
loud electronic dance music that started around sunset and didn’t end until after 1:00am.
WOMP. WOMP. WOMP. WOMP. All night. Happy birthday. 

NOTE: Last night at Citifield in Chicago at the Dead&Co. show, during Intermission.
a wasted fan tried to do a flip on the upper deck, fucked up, and fell to his death. RIP

Not Burning Man! Breaking News!
Black Rock Desert, Nevada – August 2021
TTITD? TOTITD? Or just a radical simulation?

00Camp Envy

People will be out on The Playa (Black Rock Desert, Nevada) again this year!
Many more people this year then were at the “Pretend Burn” last year most likely.
Last year, the whole world was deep into the COVID-19 Pandemic
and the BMorg told people not to go, but of course people went….

97039979_2516247011813489_6830277037605781504_n

So this year, people have forgotten about the Pandemic and want to go.
There is NO BURNING MAN this year.
There wasn’t time or anyway to sell tickets and everything else.
Too many unknowns and TOO MUCH LIABILITY. AND NO CASH TOO.
So, hopefully they will be able to have Burning Man 2022… but who knows?

This letter is from Chelsea McKinney, Burning Man Project Manager from the
Bureau of Land Management, Winnemucca District, Black Rock Field Office
June 7, 2021
Good Morning,
You are being contacted because you have reached out with questions or you have submitted an application for a commercial or organized group Special Recreation Permit (SRP) to come out to the Black Rock Desert playa this summer.
I am writing to inform you that the Bureau of Land Management, Winnemucca District, Black Rock Field Office (BLM), has made decisions regarding the activities mentioned above. These decisions have been made with Public Health and Safety, and Resource Protection in mind, and we hope that you all and other visitors will respect these decisions. The decisions are:
No Organized Group SRPs will be authorized/issued.
People are still welcome to visit the Black Rock Desert playa and camp.
No Commercial/Vending SRPs will be authorized/issued. Camps must be self-sufficient. No deliveries, or services will be authorized. This includes porta-potties. Camps can get their own toilets, off of public land, and bring them out themselves, then return them. This must all be done by someone in your camp. No pumping services will be authorized.
The BLM will also be implementing Temporary Restrictions of the playa.
These restrictions include:
Commercial activities, as defined at 43 CFR 2932.5, are prohibited.
Camping use is limited to the flat and un-vegetated playa surface.
Building of structures is prohibited. A structure is defined as construction, placement or organization of parts, pieces, or objects that are not intended for sleeping, cooking, or protection from the elements, such as shade tents.

Campfires may only be burned in containers that are sturdily elevated six (6) inches above the playa surface and in a manner that does not pose a risk of fire debris falling onto the playa surface. Plastic and nonflammable materials may not be burned in campfires. Burning of construction materials, pallets, or wood with screws or nails is prohibited.

Possessing, shooting, or causing to burn; explosives or explosive material, to include binary explosive targets is prohibited.
The discharge and dumping of grey water or black water onto the playa/ground surface is prohibited. Grey water is defined as water that has been used for cooking, washing, dishwashing, or bathing and/or contains soap, detergent, or food scraps/residue, regardless of whether such products are biodegradable or have been filtered or disinfected. Black water is defined as waste water containing feces, urine and/or flush water.
Depositing human waste (liquid and/or solid) on the playa/ground surface is prohibited.
Dumping or discharge of vehicle oil, petroleum products or other hazardous household, commercial or industrial refuse or waste onto the playa surface is prohibited. This applies to all recreational vehicles, trailers, motorhomes, port-a-potties, generators and other camp infrastructure.
Storage of over 20 gallons of fuel must include secondary containment capable of holding and preventing leaks and spills on the playa surface. Storage of less than 20 gallons must include a spill pad or other measures to prevent leaks and spills. Secondary containment is defined as capturing the entire contents of the largest tank in the containment area in the event of a leak or spill.
Unauthorized dumping or discharge of fresh water onto the playa surface in a manner that creates a hazard or nuisance is prohibited.
Aircraft landing, taking off, touch and go’s, and taxiing is prohibited. Aircraft is defined in Title 18, U.S.C., section 31 (a)(1) and includes lighter-than-aircraft and ultra-light craft. However, in an emergency, fixed wing aircraft and helicopters that are providing emergency medical services are not prohibited.

If the container has been opened one or more times, and the lid or top has been replaced, that container is an open container. The possession of an open container includes any open container that is physically possessed by the driver or operator or is adjacent to and reachable by that driver or operator. This includes, but is not limited, to containers in a cup holder or rack adjacent to the driver or operator, containers on a vehicle floor next to the driver or operator, and containers on a seat or console area next to a driver or operator.

This includes all flames that are automated, switched, pressurized or having any other action than simply being lit on fire; as well as projects using propane or other liquid or gaseous fuels.
We also ask that everyone continue to follow Leave No Trace principles and follow all other state and local laws.
Please be respectful of the communities and services you use when coming to the Black Rock Desert playa.
Please use best judgement and know your limits. The BLM wants visitors to have a good time when visiting public land but we want you to be safe. Be aware that Emergency Services (medical, fire, law enforcement) are limited around the area.
I want to thank you all for reaching out and being responsible recreationists. I hope to see you out on the Black Rock Desert playa this summer. If you have questions please email me to schedule a time to talk. Thank you.

As per The Bureau of Land Management in Nevada website:

Responsible recreation is essential to ensure your public lands remain open to multiple uses. Please remember to stay on existing routes and practice “Leave No Trace” principles while enjoying your public lands.

Nevada’s public lands are open to camping. There is no fee for dispersed, primitive camping, but there is a limit to the number of days one may camp in the same location. Dispersed, primitive camping is camping where there are no developed amenities such as water or toilets. Primitive campers are asked to follow the “Leave No Trace” land use ethics. Dispersed camping in a motorhome is allowed, but dumping black or gray water on public lands isn’t allowed. Some campground are established that requires a fee to manage it.

A person may not occupy undeveloped public lands or designated sites or areas for more than 14 days within a 28 consecutive day period.
Following the 14 days, a person and their personal property must relocate to a site outside of at least a 25 mile radius from the occupied site for a period of 14 days.

The following Travel Guidelines have been developed for travelers entering, departing, or returning to the State of Nevada. Traveler must follow state and local requirements, and at a minimum, avoid large indoor gatherings, maintain social distancing, and always wear a face covering.

You should NOT travel if you fall into any of the following categories:

  • Have tested positive for COVID-19 and have not yet recovered
  • Have been presumptuously diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms
  • Have been potentially exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19

IF you travel, make sure to do the following:

  • Avoid close contact by staying at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from anyone who is not from your household
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol)
  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Cover coughs and sneezes

Before you decide to travel to or from Nevada, do an assessment of the following:

  • Do you live with someone who might be more likely to get very ill from COVID-19? If you get infected while traveling, you can spread the virus to loved ones when you return, even if you don’t have symptoms.
  • Are you more likely to get very ill from COVID-19? Anyone can get very ill from the virus that causes COVID-19, but older adults and people of any age with certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Come on, baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire


YUPDATED: Friday, June 11, 2021 – 2:00am
We just ripped this pic from P. Mackey (who took this pic earlier today)
The Playa on Thursday, June 10, 2021

Some “beginner” guidelines to get you started::
Please consult the Burning Man website for THE SURVIVAL GUIDE and other info.
There are some “rules and regulations” and even some LAWS that you need to know.
WE ARE NOT AN ATTORNEY.
THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE! Consult a licensed attorney.

Never burn anything directly on The Playa surface!
Use a Burn Platform or Burn Barrel for all pyrotechnics.
And technically you are not allowed to burn anything this year (as per the BLM)

Store fuel safely! Separate Fuel Safe Containment is required!
Make sure everything is ventilated properly!
(generators, fuel storage, cooking equipment, etc.)
Have charged fire-extinguishers and other fire-fighting equipment in your camp.

LEAVE NO TRACE! Pack it in, pack it out. LEAVE NO MOOP! (Matter Out Of Place)
There are no trash cans in the Black Rock Desert. Don’t let anything hit the ground.
Refer to the Burning Man website for more about LNT (Leave No Trace) and MOOP.

DON’T PEE OR POOP ON THE PLAYA! Seriously. Prepare for bodily functions.
It’s against the law to urinate/defecate on The Playa! There are serious FINES if caught!
Also, it’s fucking GROSS and OFFENSIVE and INCONSIDERATE, so don’t do it PLEASE.

Dispose of all fluids and materials, including gray water, by the appropriate means.
Again, DO NOT DUMP ON THE PLAYA! Evaporate Grey water properly.
Take the rest with you.

Drive safely and at a reasonable speed for the conditions.
Don’t drive erratically, ride on the roof or hang off the side of your vehicle.
DO NOT DRIVE WHILE INTOXICATED!  (“Buzzed” Driving is Drunk Driving!)

DON’T DRIVE ON WET PLAYA!
If it rains, do not drive until The Playa is completely dry.
Do not get stuck in The Playa Mud
it doesn’t just wash off and you may not recover your vehicle.
Towing from The Playa can get into the THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
(if you can get a tow truck to come out on The Playa,
most warranties and/or services end at the highway and they won’t service you)

Secure your load, inspect your trailer, have a backup plan.
EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN TRAVELING TO AND FROM THE PLAYA!
Obey all Traffic Laws and Vehicle Regulations! YOU MAY STILL BE PULLED OVER!
Nevada State Police, Reservation Police, Bureau of Land Management Police,
the FEDS, and other LEOs are just looking for a reason…..  DON’T GIVE THEM ONE!
Fines are high for all violations. You don’t want to go to jail in Nevada.
In the past they have harassed, searched, sniffed, and arrested Burners
using questionable and sometimes illegal tactics.
If you are stopped REMAIN SILENT!
DO NOT CONSENT TO SEARCH (even if you’re clean)
If you are searched GET NAMES AND BADGE NUMBERS!
They must identify themselves!
Get it on video if you can without antagonizing the situation!
USE THE ACLU APP!
If you are arrested: REMAIN SILENT! ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY!
Just STFU! Do not talk to officers. DO NOT TALK TO OFFICERS!
Once you are arrested
“ANYTHING YOU SAY, CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU!”
CONTACT AN ATTORNEY! ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY!
They cannot ask you anything else after that. REMAIN SILENT!
And do not try to talk your way out, it doesn’t work.
They want you to incriminate yourself.
DO NOT LIE TO LAW ENFORCEMENT! REMAIN SILENT!
ASK IF YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!
ASK IF YOU ARE FREE TO GO!
If they say no, ASK IF YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!
REPEAT UNTIL THEY ARREST YOU OR LET YOU GO! REMAIN SILENT!
“I have been advised to remain silent. Am I under arrest? Am I free to go?”

Bring everything you need for RADICAL SELF RELIANCE and SURVIVAL!
The Nevada Desert can kill you.  Emergency Services are limited.
A HOSPITAL IS FAR AWAY!  If you are seriously injured you could die.
Have Medical and Travel Insurance for Medical Evacuation (by helicopter)!
Refer to the Burning Man SURVIVAL GUIDE for more info about NOT DYING.
1-2 Gallons of WATER per Person per Day is REQUIRED for SURVIVAL
Bring it with you! Use it wisely! STAY HYDRATED! PISS CLEAR!
Food. Shelter from the Elements – THE BLACK ROCK DESERT IS NO JOKE.
(SUN, EXTEME HEAT, WIND, WIND STORMS,
FREEZING COLD, PLAYA DUST, AND RAIN!
Prepare for the worst, you will probably experience it during your vacation.
Have FUN. Don’t die.

Another UPDATE: Wednesday August 11, 2021:

DIY if you aren’t making the trip to The Playa:
222973142_10224051545609451_3553569574434369896_n

And if you’re still going to Northern Nevada,
expect SMOKE from the California and Oregon Wildfires!
AND THE COVID-19 DELTA VARIANT IS STILL SPREADING!

NOT BURNING MAN SUCKS. DON’T GO.

Burning Man 2014 – Wake of the Flood on Monday



UPDATE Wednesday, August 18, 2021
For anyone going to the Black Rock Desert this month, be aware of these things:
– The Smoke from Fires in California and Oregon will impact your experience.
– The lack of infrastructure and contracted law enforcement,
porta-potties, and medical services.
– Cell reception is BAD.
You may be out of contact or have limited service on The Playa.
– The nearest Trauma-II Hospital is 141 miles away and a 3+ hour drive to Reno.

The Bureau of Land Management has published temporary restrictions, regulations,
and rules that will be in effect until October 31, 2021 to prevent Burning Man events.
If you are going to the Black Rock Desert, make sure you read and review the rules.

The Playa from the 8 Mile Gate Entrance today:

Note: No Black Rock Mountains visible!

We won’t be there. But have a good time if you go. Don’t die.

The end of the road….
