BUSY day today! Rode our bikes out on the playa to see Janelle and Chico's art installation, then rode to the other side of town to visit VW Camp. On our way back, we met the guy who drove the Nowhere Omnibus (the double decker bus from London), who ironically was an American. He told us he'd be near our side of town soon, so we rushed home, put our bikes away, and filled some travel coolers with beer. The bus was remarkably punctual (no "burner time" here!) and we were off on another adventure.
I believe tonight was the night we had burritos, courtesy of DeEtta and Chad. We remember that we poured some of the leftover green pork chili on top and made it extra good and spicy.
After dinner, everyone gathered in front of the rocket ship. "Something" was going to happen, but no one was really sure what. Some people thought the rocket would actually blast off and fly away! We searched the skies for our skydiving neighbor, who told us his team was doing a night jump with a cool light show to coincide with the rocket event. Unfortunately, it was VERY windy, so we waited and waited. After about an hour we said "screw this" and went back to camp. Shortly afterwards, we saw some big ka-booms over the tops of our neighbors' camps. However, we were having a fine time at camp and weren't terribly disappointed to miss the fireworks. We still had two nights of fire and more kabooms in store!
