I'm back from That Thing In The Woods.

Burning Flipside 2017 was awesome, I just wish there had been more of it - I didn't end up getting out there until very late Friday night, because I couldn't get Thursday and Friday off. I didn't get to do all of the ranging around I wanted to do - and by the time the temperature had dropped sufficiently enough that I actually had the energy to do it, we had to hit the hay because loadout was that morning. Oh well. It is what it is.

At least it didn't rain until Sunday. The burn itself was a Flipside miracle: we almost thought we wouldn't be able to do it once the rain let up, until the Rangers/Fire team were like, "F it, we'll throw diesel on it detonate a mortar and throw fireworks at it until it gets the job done." (A campmate and I were actually eavesdropping on the meeting at the Ranger camp where this was being discussed, because we were sick of waiting around for news.) The actual burn was probably the best one so far in the five years that I have been going.

In other news: so, I've started playing Undertale. And of course I immediately had the realization that with the concept of resetting the timeline inherent in the game dovetails well with Michael Moorcock's multiverse. And now I can't unsee Mettaton and Napstablook as that 'verse's incarnations of Jerry Cornelius and Shakey Mo Collier.
