    A word of warning to anyone attending this year. The "volunteers" at the main gate today charged me $20 to get in. I questioned whether they had really doubled the fee from last year and he said that's what he was told to charge. Then I got home and the website says it's ten dollars. So they obviously have some shady characters making some money for themselves by pocketing ten bucks for everyone who comes in.

    That's more like it! This is a good show for a good cause! I knew something wasn't right! I felt sorry for the guys helping out in the rain today!

    was a interesting ride over today, ran through a hell of a snow storm, ran out of gas and then drove through pouring rain.....but were here, walked around the show for several hours today, now back at the Comfort Inn "Drying Off" and warming up alittle.....hopefully weather makes it to the 60 they are saying it will tommorow. Eitherway hell of a turn out already and some kick ass rides

    I took almost 150 pictures today alone, might post some later otherwise, i'm going to post them on my facebook page in a few.

    Sure, I'll spend fifty bucks on gas to come back and get ten bucks. It's a piss-poor way to run a production like this. But at least we know you don't give a crap.
