Heh, I ate breakfast there this past year. I wish I could remember the
name though...

The guys who run the big field of parking across the street might also
be worth a try. Even less of a chance to contact them though. You
might be able to find something here though:

Working back from the url and with the 2005 Delorme Street Atlas software I
believe it would be Monterey. I think it would be a bad idea for me due to
my limited walking ability. I do just fine in most cases but the Dayton
Hamfest would be a real test. I am not really ready to go to a scooter yet.
In fact I am going to log off now and take a half mile walk in the woods
with the dogs!

Well, I'd take it in sections. Indoors isn't too bad as you can sit
down in between the halls. Outdoors I usually do a section of the lot,
then sit down for a few minutes. They always have way too many of
those scooters for rent...why not try it out for a day and if it
becomes a problem, rent one. It would be cool if you could make it
out.

I will keep thinking about it. I have a lot of fond memories about the place
as well as a lot of junk I should not have bought! For those who have not
been there before it is a good idea to take along an empty back pack or a
carry bag with a shoulder strap.

If you are a vendor, you could probably sell a lot of luggage carts for
those who find the "boat anchor" of their dreams.

When the event was still held in April there was an especially bad weather
day, freezing rain and sleet. There happened to be a vendor selling old
military clothing. The best buy I made that week was a several sizes too
small army uniform jacket. He sold out!

I miss the general flavor of the Hamfests in Ohio. The ones I have been to
in the Carolinas are way too business like and are held in expensive
locations.

The bad weather has followed the event into May.  You can generally count on
bitter cold and raining, or hot and humid and raining.  The entire rest of
May might be beautiful, but never on Hamvention weekend!

Very true. My first Hamvention, I had no idea about the weather
situation and didn't dress very warmly. Of course my joy at the
fleamarket totally stampped on my reflex "hey it's too cold and wet,
go inside" and thus I got rather sick. Still, I had a great time :)

Now I know better, and I bring proper clothing. John's comment holds
true, but it's not just the rest of May that may be nice. Most days I
wake up there and it's beautiful in the morning. As soon as I get to
Hara, the rain and clouds set in. Figures!
