Larry's post was interesting to me. Years ago, I used to drive out with Mike A. He liked to book out first thing Sunday morning, which the AMA frowned on for vendors. I decided I would drive out myself, and stay till the bitter end and look to see what treasures vendors left behind. There was not a single nut or bolt. By 4:30 it was as if there had never been a swap meet (other than beer cans and food wrappers at the garbage cans). There was nothing! I tried again the following year. Same thing. All of this was probably 15 years ago or more. Now Mike and I still travel separately, but for different reasons. This year I left around 2:30. I no longer stick around. Of course, the whole thing is different now. Years ago, the swap meet was where things were happening at night and the campgrounds were pretty quiet. That certainly is not the case anymore!
