Urrhfghghghhhhhh this makes me miss the playa already. Usually it takes until March until I even think about wanting to go back, but fuck...
Funny story from this year (again, funny at the time, perhaps not so much now but fuck it you're going to read it anyway) I'm riding around with a virgin friend of mine looking for Robot Heart. We have a general idea of where it is but are kind of messed up so it's difficult to, you know, find things. I'm looking for the giant pulsating heart on the top of the car and I'm like, dude, just look for a big heart on top of a car. It's a heart, and it's on a car. We're totally lost and then dude goes "Hey, I think I found it. It's that big icon, with the robot, and the heart."
"Oh. Yeah. You're right." I'm pretty sure the icon thing was new for this year, yeah?
I think it was saturday during the middle of the day when my girlfriend and I were riding around the deep playa and came across this army of bikes parked but no people. we were trying to figure out where all the people were. we came across one person searching through them looking for one that was his. speaking to him we reailzed that all the bikes (at least two dozen of them) were left there from the robot heart party the night before by people who couldn't find them when they left.
You can feel as superior as you want out there... Just don't forget there are a few hundred crusty folks doing resto (as in right now) who feel the same way about you.
and knee-jerk unreflective reactions to tongue-in-cheek comments make it worth it. Most resto folks have time to think about why they even keep coming back year over year, why there's a playa to restore, who it was that left the shit, and why it's worth it to them to pick it up.
It's not a fucking contest*.
It's clear you see no irony here so I'll let you alone to simmer in your shame. It's called a thread because each post doesn't exist in a vacuum. Don't bother posting if you don't want to read the context of the post you think you're mocking (or perhaps you have some sort of message board aspergers)
