If you open it up to camping does that mean that the rest of the air cooled people can't camp there? I would think that it would be better to close the Sat. show at the end of there trophy presentation Then everyone that is not a part of the tcb can go away except for those that have been invited to the private Sat.evening Sun. blow out /up. If the camping is open to all of the show particapants you may wind up with alot of people that you really may not wasnt there.AND if you want to have a camper cookoff I think it would tie in better with the Sat. evening camp/party, drink, BS ,fireworks,and whatever other activities that may be pursued .

Let's talk Psycoblooie If you can remember, before you turn left to my dirt road, on the right side of Nob Hill Road, there is a big white old gas station. just behind that is a house with, let's say 1 complete acre, maybe 2. It is a mowed yard with a house in the middle. It has level spots for maybe 4, busses after that there different degrees of slope, but not more than 3 2x6s could level. The house has a kitchen, three bedrooms, a full bath. It is a great place to hang out, but it is not my house, so if we allowed a big campout there, who's going to be security there and keep an on everything while we are having fun at my house. And if we tell people that they can camp up there, they could walk down to my house to party and they'd get their feelings hurt that they weren't invited to camp with us cool people.

Let's talk Psycoblooie Where exactly is the 2 acres that you are talking about? Is that the area where you take the side road down to the left of your house off of the drive way? Do we need to come up early and bring weedeaters and yared blowers and clear some areas in the trees? I can't seem to get a visual on what area you are talking about.

It is colder inside there than outside. So, though I have ctually been working on Murray for the last three days (outside) today it's just too cold. Dan thinks that I should go ahead and publicise Pycobilly 2 as a show/campout, but he thinks that we can separate the camp areas because my house won't hold them all. I think that's what he said. I am sure that I can support 30 busses. There are two acres around the house behind the garage, so there is plenty camping room, but I am not sure why we should have camping as a real event if we are not all in the same place for the fireworks, food, general foolishness. We can't really do the Sunday bus show the way Paul does it. We can't have the show down at my house, there is no room for the public. We really would have to pack up and go back to the top of the road. If we can agree on that, then we could have a Sunday Bus only show. My idea is to have the Saturday show, then send ever yone home except us and hold the seal of approval party at my house, for invited guests only. Sunday we could lay around after a big brunch and take a cruise to the War Eagle Mill (30 miles round trip) or go to the lake and swim or whatever. Any other ideas? .
