You look quite hamsexy.

2 things:

1. Nice to see some good design on a ham page. That spalsh screen is top-notch.

2. Thank God they haven't invented smell-ternet... I could just imagine the aroma of that crowd!

:baby:

Heh, yeah. All indoors. Dozens of hambones milling about. Mmmmm..

The hat I was wearing is an official Hamsexy one given to me by Bryan on the actual day. I'll have to wear it again this year.

Ham-Ex has come and gone.

Did my parking duty this morning and had lots of people say "you're the dude on the website!"

Nice to be famous for a minute or two. :baby:

Also ran into grinthock and mikey and his pals (didn't catch their names). I'm sure they'll be posting some of the "highlights".

Saw grinthock's Jeep and it looks pretty bad-ass. The lightning rod (Hamstick) right next to the Jerry can would make me a bit nervous driving around in a thunderstorm though!

Thanks to Mikey too for giving me a strobe show as he peeled out of the lot looking for a bank machine. :wacker:

Ok the story with this moron is, he tries to point me to a space that's too small, so i ignore him and park beside another vehicle, he tells me i'm not "close" enough, and I said "I think i'm fine" and he says "We need to get more cars in here, get closer" so I said "F*ck You" and the guy walked off... fuck you

Thank you for wearing the Hamsexy hat!!

Those photos really belong on the front page, man...

Nice weather.. I can't believe it was nice enough to take the motorcycle to last year's Brampton stinkfest.

And no one better be noshing on those chips, man.... there are two places where you don't eat the food - Strip Clubs and Hamfests.

What, you mean that $2.99 prime rib at the local peeler joint should be avoided? :baby:

The weather cooperated somewhat this year. At least it didn't rain!

Last year's was nice because it was actually on the second Saturday in April. We try to keep Ham-Ex in March because the Durham stinkfest is in April.
Sad thing is, I never made it inside. I had to boogey on home because the wife had an appointment later in the morning.

Yeah, I was talking to a buddy of mine and he said there was a lot of crap. No real gold anywhere.

Is the piss bag included? Who's responsible for the hazmat disposal fees on the seat cushion?
