    Is it OK to park in the lots that are not barricaded?

    I'm glad I purchased those ponchos last night. I hope all of you layered up...Won't be there until about 10:00. Waiting for my brother-in-law to arrive from the northwest suburbs.

    Most recent forecast: High of 47 degrees. Seems that most of the rain will be in the morning although there may be "lingering" showers in the afternoon.

    That is not the positive report I was hoping for.

    Won't be out there until after 1:00 (C group), but I'm bringing some stuff to help keep me warm:

    Stone Sublimely Self Righteous
    Old Ruffian Barleywine
    Slumbrew Porter Square Porter
    Firestone Walker's Reserve Porter
    Hoppin' Frog B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher Oatmeal-Imperial Stout
    and maybe a couple of my homebrew Black Lodge porters

    Reggie's in Chicago is providing free bus rides to FFF all day/night. It's not very busy either.

    Are they running constantly, as they come back? In the past, I thought they only did 2 down (like 9 and noon) and 2 back (like 6 and 8).

    I'm fairly certain the people there would burn down Three Floyds if that were true.

    Allotment seems to be 4. Doesnt quite explain why I've seen pairs of people with 8, but we shall see.
