September 2002

This update starts right after Burning Man. Luckily my friend had relatives in Carson City, so we drove there and had the first shower in a few days of desert dust and heat. His uncle also made a really good dinner which was great after days of canned vegetables and instant soup. It was especially good to be able to taste something again. The dust on the playa got into my tastebuds and my nose, until everything tasted and smelled the same (including Bud Light, and the porta-potties). It turned out there was a place to go 4-wheeling right nearby.
