First of all, Tejas bought a 3-wheel electric scooter.
I’m totally stoked that he decided to get one because it means he can get around easier in places like the Pagan Bunny Burn, unSCruz, and Burning Man.
At least he’ll be able to move around at festivals until his knees get fixed.
I hated the idea of him getting stuck in camp because he couldn’t walk to other locations.
Let’s hear it for electric scooters!
Even if they’re made by Harley.
The SECOND development is that THE SWEDE IS COMING TO BURNING MAN.
Aside from the OBVIOUS reasons I’m excited he’s coming, I simply can’t wait to see HIS MIND GET BLOWN AWAY by all the art, creativity, community, and interactivity that is Burning Man.
This development means that I have to plan Burning Man COMLETELY different than I have in past years.
For one, I have to procure another playa bike for The Swede.
For two, it looks like I’ll be cooking for three people, not two.
And another thing – I may have to sleep in the little bed in Tejas’ RV and give the big bed over the cab to The Swede.
Finally, I may have to assist The Swede in getting outfits for Burning Man.
He’s not really the “outfit” type but my guess is that when he gets to Burning Man and sees the self-expression that is featured at Burning Man, he’ll wish he had a tutu.
Or a kilt.
Or graphic leggings.
We also have to figure out how to light him up at night.
So there’s that too.
There’s all sorts of acculturization that goes into a trip to Burning Man and with him being remote from me, planning is going to be a challenge.
Nevertheless, it’s GOING TO BE FUN!
One thing is for sure. . .
. . .we’re gonna need A LOT OF SUNBLOCK!!
