... starts now! After much deliberation from the jury, Patrick and I decided to pack two vehicles (not one)... I shall drive the DeathGypsy and Pat shall drive the Outback. My mustang is brimming full of lingerie, make-up, heels, and nice smelling girl stuff! The Outback is carrying blankets, dishes, laundry, tools, books, kitchen utensils - things we will not have to remove from the car till Texas.
I am pretty lucky, in the fact, that I own almost nothing at all.... Packing took me less than forty-minutes. When you live out of your suitcase for so long, you learn what of materialistic things you need in your life and what kind of things you do not... Unfortunately for Pat, he owns about half the stuff in this apartment - It has taken him most of the week to pack away all his belongings.
The actual trip.... is a month-long roadtrip down to San Antonio, dropping off our stuff with friends, leaving my car, repacking for Burning Man, driving to Reno for the festival. This will be my third year at the Burn - Originally I was not attending (there is just so much going on this month, ridiculous to add something as huge and expensive as the Burn) But Matthew, my best friend in all the world, gifted Patrick with a free $300 ticket this year - making it possible to attend the festival.
Still do not have a laptop! Driving me crazy! Using my old ancient laptop that I donated to Pat a year ago - Sooo slooow.... bogged down with music and porn. Keep wanting to upload photos to the blog - but I cannot, all my personal stuff is on the crapped-out laptop! Once I settle down into an apartment in Austin, I should be able to either repair or buy a new computer.... until then.... this stone-age computer is my new traveling buddy....
Roadtrip starts today!! Incredibly excited!
I leave a day before Patrick. Out of the apartment at 11:30am today. He leaves tomorrow afternoon..... lets get this show on the road! (hehehe..... on the road... literally!)
