    I don't know how many of you made it to the 'Big Buck Expo' but Huntman and I went today. About $25 in fuel, $19 for the two of us to get in, $5 for parking and nearly nothin' to see. I believe that there were less vendors this year than last year and next to nothin' to see.
    'Expo' by definition is 'a large-scale public exhibition or show, as of art or manufactured products' - this was anything but 'large-scale'.
    According to the website Troy Landry was going to be there at 10am so we got there early to find out that he was really gonna be there at noon. The good news is that we were there plenty early enough to be 10th in line to see Troy and take pics. As far as I'm concerned he was the only redeeming factor of this expo. Huntman and I did enjoy meeting Troy - he seems the like the same cool guy you see on TV.
    If any of ya made it, would luv to hear what y'all thought.

    Your not the first person I have heard to say it wasn't worth the trip.i would have liked to met Troy,and thought about going.But it would have taken me about 4 hours at least to drive there and when I added the cost of gas and paying someone to work for me today,well...after hearing your report,I'm glad I stayed home.At least you were able to get some great pics to show for your trip.

    Yeah Diane and myself had talked about going but I wanted to finish my Boat (Check it out in the Duck hunting Forum) not to mention I had a side job that took me to 2 to finish and not long after that My buddy Don called me with the same report you shared...It sucked!!!! My Daughter wanted to see liz yesterday but decided to go to the water park instead so Glad I saved a few bucks lol....Troy does seem cool.

    Yeah last year I just thought they were tryin to grow it into to a bigger show. I heard that there was an astronomical price for a booth and that is why many vendors stay away from the 'expo'. (That may be due to what the coliseum charges - idk.) I don't think the 'expo' will survive much longer cuz a lot of folks there were talking about how lame it was and if it weren't for Troy there would be no reason to be there.
