Burning Man! Wednesday night update

Wednesday night update

Back in Los Angeles.
The Aftermath!
We’ve been cleaning for a week!
Everything was so dirty and dusty.
And it doesn’t come off with water, or soap and water….
Everything has to be washed with a distilled white vinegar solution to remove the Playa dust and dirt. It took three days to clean all the crud off my little bike!

It took a whole day to clean Vanessa (the cargo van). We cleaned it, and then cleaned it again, and then took it and had it washed, and then cleaned it again. Vanessa was returned the next morning cleaner than when we picked her up.

And we’re still doing laundry! We did three days of laundry (clothes, sleeping bags, etc.) and we washed the inner tent and rainfly today, now there’s only the outer tent and a little bedding left and then some stuff we want to re-wash again.

We double bagged all our stuff and still had to clean everything! We had plastic baggies inside bigger baggies, inside trash bags and things still got dusted.

All our metal items (flashlights, cooking stuff, tools, knives, etc. in addition to our bike) had to be cleaned thoroughly because the alkali dust will quickly rust and corrode anything metal.

In addition to cleaning, we’ve been eating good food and sleeping in our nice comfy bed. And spending a lot of time with our three dogs, who really missed us a lot too.

The best thing about Harrah’s in Reno was the Chinese food and the breakfast buffet, in addition to air conditioning, running water, a toilet, a hot shower & bath, clean towels, and a king-size bed to sleep in.

Post-Playa Pool Party in Reno, Nevada

We’ve laid out and written some of the first Blog, but we’ve been really busy and really tired since returning home. So, hopefully this update will keep you interested in reading more.

We dropped off the three “disposable” cameras we shot of Burning Man today for processing, printing and scanning. Hopefully it will be worth the money and we’ll get some good pics from the cameras. We remember shooting pics of our camp, the Phoenix burning at sunrise, some mutant vehicles, art, fire, and Davina the Dragon. Not sure what else is there, so we want to see the pics too!

So tired, we went to bed.  MORE TO COME SOON!

I sent John Oliver a nickel taped to a 3″ x 5″ card and John Oliver sent me this!

Hallelujah! Praise Be! Amen! (Suddenly I’m speaking in tongues…)

The GENIUS is that is John Oliver and his writers and staff have actively filed as a CHURCH and have received numerous donations to date.

THIS IS ALL PERFECTLY LEGAL! NO TAXES PAID ON ANY DONATIONS MADE!

John Oliver’s Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption – PO BOX 1954 New York, NY 10113

1-800-THIS-IS-LEGAL 1-800-844-7475 You can listen to the message in the video below.

“U.S. tax law allows television preachers to get away with almost anything. We know this from personal experience. Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption will not be able to accept donations from Church supporters from the states of Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsylvania, or South Carolina. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

UPDATE September 14, 2015 – Last night on “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”: Megareverend John Oliver announced that he was “shutting it down” because in addition to thousands of dollars (“mostly in ones”), bags of seed, a large wooden penis sculpture, and many other donations, a few people sent semen (real human seed).

The End of John Oliver's Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption?

All donations received will be given to Doctors Without Borders.
