Most people don't aim too high and miss, they aim too low and hit. - Bob Moawad

Goals Completed: 4
Goals in Progress: 38

This morning I'm sitting in another hotel ballroom getting more CEUs, and I'll be here for the next three days at the Northwest Institute of Addiction Studies Conference. After attending this conference, I'll have gotten all of the required continuing education required to maintain my licensure for this year. This morning I sat zazen as well, having gotten up early to drive a friend to the airport.

I have signed up for three overnight shifts on an Engine for the Black Rock Volunteer Fire Department, and four shifts for Ranger Intercept. This weekend I'll be getting my yearly basic Black Rock Ranger Training, and then I'll be set to hit the playa ready to go.

This last week I, with a lot of help, did get the deck and the top of Ol' Number 3 derusted and painted, and ready for new decking. She looks a lot less weathered and is a lot more protected. I'm going to put new composite decking on top of the bus, a lighter and stronger alternative to her old sun-degraded wood, when I have both the time and money. This will allow a better ham radio antenna, and solar panels, and better storage options.

The Whorse is still in the mechanic's bay. She hasn't yet been cleared to even drive to Burning Man, much less operate during the event. Whether or not the Whorse can actually get to the playa, I'll sign up for Ranger Intercept shifts and get the training and mentoring for next year.

My monthly haiku:

unrelenting sun
water in wooden cracks
crumbling rusty deck

a life of training
constant learning and review
part of the Way

Showing up, aware -
Having a plan, useful goals;
