Nooooo it's not because we were starting our own henna cult.

In fact, it's not even Coyote related!

I passed around "party favors" for everyone on Saturday, including
these little cotton tie-dyeable bandanas so everyone would: 1. have
something to protect their head with from the sun while outdoors, 2.
look just as silly as me and I wouldn't have to be alone, and 3. so
we would all have something to tie around our neck to howl with
coyotes every night.

: The Fabulous Alissa is getting her terp test here.....

Yup that's me looking "camping fresh" in my Aztec lookin tank top,
and loosing my henna cherry to the equally Fabulous Lisa K. (Lisa and
I were each others' first -- neither of us had ever been hennaed by
another person before!!) And we spent the whole time APOLOGIZING to
each other for how terrible our carrot bag skills were!!

: Coyotes just thrashed Alissa all over the place for this henna
: conference! Friday, literally every 20 minutes there was a major
: change in Alissa's carefully organized schedule. Cars broke down,
: flights were delayed, passengers got bumped ..... Txilar developed a
: theory about American Airlines, blondes and the caste system ......
: Coyotes kept tumbling us all around but each tumble just made things
: come out better! Gotta love them merc rets!

Yeah, this is a serious tale to tell. If I ever recover from "the
horror" I will write up a big ass article for the Journal (if they'd
like it) and call it, "So, You Wanna Host a Sirius Conference...?"

: This pic is looking towards my tent that coyote thrashed a bit, but
: was still comfy and warm when full of "southern women". And ... it
: was so interesting to find bear poo 8 inches from the corner of the
: tent in the morning, and the tree that we'd tied the tent to had
: claw excercizing slashes and bark rubbed off where he'd scratched
: back. Alissa figured he liked the loose soil thereabouts for a good
: wallow. The poo wasn't fresh ... but it was an exquisite reminder
: just how far up we were in the mountains!

Yup, we even had a mini scatology lesson for those who gathered
around to see the poo. Talk about "henna and more" for a retreat
