Everything is fresh and well prepared in a Food Truck. The owner's reputation is on the line with every item sold.

You must be wrong, Terapined says it
'sucks'. I'm sure he's never eaten at
a food truck in his life, he'd rather
bring his own stuff and make bologna
and mustard sandwiches rather than
eat the gourmet food truck fare..

My mother made me eat those for lunch hundreds of times. I think she might have put some mayo on too. Wonder bread, of course.

Not an official warning, but be careful of the "personal insult" line.

It's insulting to say somebody eats sandwiches? How so,
I don't get it.

I wasn't sure what they were called at the time, but I saw lots of "one wheels." I'd say I saw them about a dozen times, but may have seen the same one multiple times. Here is a video of what I'm referring to. Did not see any other electric unicycles.

I'd like to try one sometime.

Pretty pricey
5-7 MILE RANGE $1,399
12-18 MILE RANGE $1,799

My problem would be that the OneWheel weighs 25 lbs, and this beautiful foldable electric bike with 10 mile range weighs 21 lbs for about $800.



I can only see the one wheel as a recreational vehicle. It doesn't make a lot of sense as a commuting vehicle (compared to a foldable electric cycle).

Looking at the Wiz's videos and other videos online
I'll probably never go to BM
To me the dust problem is a real issue for me
Bonnaroo also had a dust problem during dry weather
It gets in my eyes and I am really bothered by it
Maybe my eyes are over sensitive to dust.

I prefer small festivals, say 10k
The Spirit of the music Park and campground does it for me
Beautiful spot next to the Suwanee river
I camp in the woods :-)

A lot of the festivals i attend have the carnival food vender circuit supply food. I am simply not impressed.
I prefer steaks and hamburgers on my RV grill
