    I'll go ahead and put this here for people trying to meet up at the festival and for out of state people scrambling for places to ride and stay.

    I checked Barber's web site and their on-site tent camping is already sold out. If you are riding in from out of state or "far away" and you want a place to camp then just contact me. I have 2 rooms, 3 back-country cabins and 10 primitive camping spots available (that I'm willing to deal with this year). Gated, secured, safe, private and all that. Free coffee at sunrise :D There's also 50+ miles of single track here for those that want to get dirty before or after they attend the festival.

    It's been five years, or more, since I've attended.
    Planning to camp (sleep on the earth) on-site.
    What sort of on-site concessions, what-when is there coffee and something to eat?

    Are you asking about concessions at Barber?
    Or at my camp?

    Asking about concessions at Barber.
    Believed it was a general event thread.

    Ok

    Coffee: if you're an early riser and require immediate coffee, I will suggest brewing your own with camp stove. Otherwise you'll be hunting for it like a smack addict lathered in a cold sweat.

    Last year there were food vendors in the swap meet area, but not sure about coffee. At the entrance to the tent campground there were maybe two vendors, but I think both were lunch oriented. In the park, $10.00 hamburgers are the norm. Bring Money. Beer is sold at ACE corner, but this requires an extra admission charge. The museum, also an extra charge, has a snack bar.

    Coffee in the Swap Meet..........usually a food vendor trailer at the far end of Row "H or J" that serves coffee early.......and waffle cones I think. I sometimes have Fresh Krispy Kreme Dognuts at my space H-30, as I drive in every morning from home. Stop by and say "hello", grab a KK if you see me there early (around 6:30AM or so).

    I'll be at Barber, in and out. I usually hang out in aces corner watching the races or in the swap meet buying shit I dont need.

    Alright good people. It looks like I will have a good crowd for the weekend. People are coming from all over. I'll throw some burgers on the grill and make a big pot of beans. Even if you are camping on the Barber's site or nearby, Please come by for a burger and some campfire time. I am 5 minutes from the track. PM me for an address and bring a chair if you have one.
