    What a storm.

    I arrived in time to set up my tent before the storm hit. 50 mph winds and torrential downpour. Luckily I chose a high spot. I have been working most of the afternoon helping Tom set up the stage. Great group of volunteers here already. I am working first shift in the beer tent tomorrow. See everyone at noon til 4PM; then it is my turn to drink.

    There is a prew pub in town with excellent food. I think i will take that instead of the free food being prepared for the volunteers.

    If you are on the stage and looking out into the audience, I am to the right under the tree. That is an advantage of getting here early.

    Any idea what it's called? Marley's Brewery and Grill perhaps?

    Good beer

    Yes, it was marley's.

    The stout was excellent; can't say the same for the prime rib sandwich.

    There is another micro brewery at the north end of town located at the Inn at Turkey Hill. Lightstreet exit of I80. http://www.innatturkeyhill.com/index.html

    Another is located in Danville south of Bloomsburg. http://oldforgebrewingcompany.com/

    One of the top rated in the east coast and possibly the country is located in Selinsgrove. http://www.selinsgrovebrewing.com/

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Is there a taxi cab company in Bloomsburg? I like beer and I like driving, but I am hard core about 8-hours-between-bottle-and-throttle.

    Google search indicates K-Cab Co @ 570-784-1550

    You could always purchase a growler and take back to your camping spot.

    Room for a tent? I'm hoping I can pound my tent stakes into the ground at the Rally and get set up. (Looks like there was recent rain so may not be too bad.)

    Know what you mean. At Bonnaroo this year we were hoping hard for a little rain, but instead we had four days of clear skies, 95 degree heat, and enough dust to choke a mule.

    K-Cab it is, but they stop running at 8:00 p.m., so their last pickup for the night is 7:30 p.m.! That's why my friend and I are heading out to dinner at 5:30 tonight (cab to/from are pre-arranged). We're planning an early night in any event, given we have an all-day (7:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) Advanced Riding Course Friday (in the Mall parking lot. That should be fun in 98 degree weather).
