2014 Barber Vintage Festival, Oct 10-12

Event and camping tickets go on sale Monday. Get em while they last. Camping usually goes pretty quick so don't drag your feet.

PJ and I will be there again as will BgDadddy and hopefully a few others. We will be camping in lot C. We will set up our compound again in the back so look us up.

I know, silly question, but.........

Is there any way I can hang the hammocks?

I really want to go but I can't do tents - unless it's big enough to use a cot.

Lot C is surrounded by trees but I have never paid any attention to the size or spacing of them. You could probably find something that would work but you also might want to bring along a machete, or an axe, or maybe even a chain saw. :). I seem to remember it being kinda thick in there.

Are you in "Tent Lot C"?

Is the "Ace Pass" worth the extra $20?

Planning to be there with my sons. I live close by, so not planning to camp.

The Barber Vintage weekend is my favorite of all the events that Barber has during the year. The folks and bikes that attend this event are the best!

I will probably be volunteering in the Museum one of the days, or leading Musuem tours, but we will be hanging out the rest of the weekend checking out the bikes and vintage racing.

Hope to meet some more ADV riders too.

Ace Cafe

Yes, I thought the Ace Cafe was worth the extra money. Ann and I will likely go back this year, we missed last year. I like to spend a day or two in Helen Ga on the way down or back from home.

We are too. I just have to figure out what we're going to do between Nota and Barber.

Good grief, it's a good thing this iPad is waterproof. I just snorted coffee all over it.

(I believe Mr. Barber would frown upon that at the racetrack. )

There's 2 of us heading down from the eastern shore of Maryland. We'll be in Lot B.

I couldn't really tell from the registration but maybe a veteran can answer. Is it as many bikes and tents you can fit in the 20x20 site? How many do people manage to fit usually? We have a couple more people that would like to ride down with us but camping is sold out. We all have solo tents.
