I have been giving the idea some consideration, however. I have this fascination with things that are outside the norm as well as an attraction for, let's say, vintage professions. The idea of a small travelling carnival or even a pseudo gypsy camp really appeals to me! So I've been going over some of the logistics of it for the past hour or two -- pricing vehicles and trailers, researching supplies needed for extended "vacations", that sort of thing -- and I think that with a good enough plan and a few investors, we could pull it off. Don't worry...I have no intentions of hitting any of you up for cash. I hate owing anyone anything. Which, now that I think about it, blows some huge holes into the investor idea. I'll get over it.
Really, what I'm curious to know from anyone who's reading this is what would you want to see? So far our/my idea is still based on the "gypsy" idea: fortune tellers, dancers, fire spinners, that sort of thing. I can see doing a small midway deal as well, maybe just a couple booths of wares and food. We'd primarily be touring ren faires (although I personally would like to end the tour at Burning Man ). What do you think? Questions, suggestions and criticisms are all welcome.
