For me the most fun part of it all is the first night before it opens and we camp in the cow pasture adjacent to the tents where all the crafters are. We don't have any electricity or water...so are totally on our own power....generator...water on board...too much fun! Most RV's are early to bed as they get up early to get to the show at 8:00! We generally do the same...about 9:30...only noise we hear are the cows!! They are quite curious as to why we are in their pastures???
