Some of my thoughts on this subject.
This is such a large country. I probably would not travel to the midwest. Too far to drive, if I fly I have to rent a car...
I think different types of outdoors recreation revolving around HAMMOCKS, camping hammocks. That would enclude clothing, and other comforts.
I guess it is all in how large you would want to go. I have done a few trade shows for our Rose Society. With the changes in the economy we have many new vendors. Some of them are really trying to stretch their wares to fit in with the rose theme. It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep our tried and true vendors coming back.
Our recent Fall Fare, had a lot of no shows, goods that were not of interest to our members. I thought i had a pretty tight ship until this year.
I would enjoy going. I do not stay in Hotels, I find them creepy. So a campground would work betty for my group of four. Ofcourse i live on the West Coast so I would want something between, Alberta and the Pacific Ocean, someplace between Edmonton and San Diego, CA.
Here in Oregon Gary R and Bigfoot2 and wife did an excellent job of collecting raffle prizes for the Oregon Hang. I really enjoyed seeing and handling the different types of equipment. Seeing it in use, was the key.
