Went to the Wayne County (OH) Fair when I lived there for a few years, now that was fun. $5 and you get to wander around and see all kinds of cool stuff that the rural folk do.

I took my family to the SD fair on Father's Day. Kids had fun, they both got 4 rides in on $20, I ate a $24 bacon wrapped turkey leg. None of that deep fried snickers, oreos or butter like that HAHA. Games cost more than the rides, so no games for us. Lots of walking around, good times, only go once a yr. The children's art/craft tent is where we spent allot of time. Crafts, games, building blocks and magic shows.

the level of kids art is dang cool to see.

Found a good deal on Sidi Drako MTB shoes $349 vs normal $499. Ordered. They are pretty much same as the Sidi road shoes I just got. I am going to use these for AIDS Lifecycle training and the ride next year. The amount of walking at stops and such I decided rather than tear up road shoes and cleats. I like how the road shoes feel on my feet so figured get their MTB twin
