RENFEST INDEX PAGE RAILFAN GUIDES HOME RAILROAD SIGNALS HOMEThe day after is always such a bummer -- most
vendors have already packed up and left for home or their next destination, the
few that remain are casually taking their booths down and loading up their cars
and trucks -- and the Spoutwood crew is busy taking down any leftover evidence
that the Festival was even here.... again, bummer. Most folks don't have the
opportunity to be around on the day after, as it is a day of work for most.
I'm lucky because I'm retired, and have the luxury of being able to do what I
want, when I want (most of the time).
So today, I'm around because I decided to help a friend, the sound guy, Bryant,
get his equipment home. With two of us towing trailers, we could get done
in one day what would have taken him another day or two, AFTER he got off of
work - yuk.
By the time I arrived around 10, about half of the spot-a-potty's had been
removed, the rental tents were coming down, and loads of hay bundles were being
brought down off the hill. There were still about a dozen vendors in
various stages of tear-down, and I went around and spoke with a few of them.....
That's how I know the Kettle Korn folks had sold out! :-)
The picture below comes from Google Maps Streetview, and is at a time when
nothing is going on. The picture was taken in 2013, but it doesn't look
any different in 2018.
The next picture also comes from Google, and their aerial view. However,
it is a composite of about 40 or more screen grabs, because as you move around
on their aerial view, the vantage point changes, so it is not an easy task to
stitch everything together! If you look really, really hard, you may be
able to spot a few places where things didn't particularly line up well,
especially on the corners. This is the base map I used on the DAY 3 page
to show where everything is in relation to each other.
