Hi! More of what you don’t need…QUESTIONS!
So…we attended TBF in 2017 and stayed in Mountain Village, Condo room with no kitchen…so we had a ton of STUFF for a 2 & 6 year old…
2019 - Driving in from St. Louis, hoping to take it easier this year with less baggage…that includes coolers and trying to keep them cold for a 20-hour road trip.
- Are the grocery stores that I see via google stocked with the normal must haves (JUNK) for kids/convenience…(Ex: chip-snacks/eggs/frozen pizza/milk/sausage/sub sandwiches/ice) Or better yet…Beer/Vodka/Whiskey…Any Booze? I picture more of a Trader Joe’s theme and I just want to be prepared and pack accordingly.
*Our lodging is along the “quiet side of the San Miguel River”, but via the Tel Firefighter’s post, that river is flowing pretty heavy. Are there any flooding/disaster potentials (Currently half of the St Louis Metro area is under water from our rivers, so I’m naturally curious.
*Are there simple/easy/no bear threat (lol) family hiking trails easily accessible without needing to take a car? I’m hoping to park the truck and not move it for a week.
*We won’t be bringing our bikes, but are scooters allowed in town? Figure the kids could scoot around while we sight-see the town? But some may see scooters as a nuisance…?
*In the festival, water is provided for refillable jugs/nalgenes…water guns? If I’m remembering correctly?
*If we skipped FirstGrass, what are some must see-do’s in the town that we could check out?! Or if we get there early enough, things we could check out before FirstGrass.
I want to enjoy the town this time!!! Thanks and GO BLUES!!
