Toy Yacht II Travels

Blue Ridge BBQ Festival weekend June 10-12, 2005.
The cat and I headed out for this festival without much thought.  Never having been, it was a gamble where we would stay.  I planned on bluffing my way through security so that I might get through the backdoor of this event. I circumnavigate around the police roadblocks and wound up at the entertainer's parking entrance where I proceeded to set up camp.  I then purchased a Blue Ridge barbecue Festival T-shirt and played the part of volunteer/security/I know someone.  I put down my awning and remained unchallenged for the entire week.  Wacko and I had a blast.
