BM Friday September 3, 2010
That evening, Pat, our neighbor to the east came over and introduced himself. He is a big land owner in the corner of Nevada next to Oregon and California who builds and restores stagecoaches by remaking everything utilizing his blacksmith shop. Judy, his wife and life partner, are dedicated individualists living off the land, honoring the traditions of the past and rejoicing in living life at its fullest. In case Burning Man gets kicked off BLM land, the festival may move to his property.
Across the street was a Seattle pizza group with a mobile pizza oven. Each evening they fired up the oven with applewood to produce the BEST PIZZA ON THE PLAYA in about 90 seconds to pass out to everybody. What a treat! Their group included an Oregon beekeeper who provided the honey for the yeast in the pizza dough. He regaled us of bee tales for at least an hour. We also ran into an old friend from Southern California. There are lots of interesting folks in the outer reaches of Black Rock City. And it was such a good time that we did not even go out to the playa.
