ballet, money for vacations

Yesterday I took Jennifer Hart's ballet class, and she was surprised to see me taking ballet. But overall she was nice. I'm finding my dance flame being inspired. Having an awesome camp in August to prepare for helps. And I'm resenting that my Aikido class is taking me away from dance.

I'm watching Star Trek: TNG from the beginning, and am surprised how well it holds up!

Money, money, money. So I've 2 money draining vacations in August. The dance camp, which has an enrollment fee, and then the hotel. I may end up getting a roommate that I don't know so we can split hotel costs.

Burning Man is expensive. Between the $280 ticket, and then flight tixs, car rental tickets, buying bikes.
need to buy a tent. I'm thinking of hitting up REI's garage sale on Saturday and maybe finding a tent.

It's kind of weird having 2 vacations to be excited about and to prepare for in August.

If you are able to pack light when flying up to Reno (this is usually possible if you hook up with a theme camp to take care of food/water, and put most of your camp stuff on the community truck), you can then save a lot of money by hitchhiking from Reno to BRC. You don't quite have as much control over when you get there (or when you get back), but it's a very fun way to travel.

I like TNG, too, but I didn't think they hit their stride until after the first season or two. I'm glad you're enjoying the early stuff!

We've been rewatching TNG on occasion also. Very enjoyable! Brings back great memories.
