This year the festival began on Monday, however I arrived Friday so I could get a little R&R in before the parties began. A few others showed up Friday and Saturday, but really started to trickle in Sunday. Next year's HCBF will begin Sunday.

A word on AAA: I used AAA for many years and recently saw a decline in service. I was not unhappy with AAA, but when suggested by Nationwide to ad their roadside assistance/trip interruption coverage for just $20 extra a year, I jumped for it. At the moment I don't know how many times they'll tow, but its up to 100 miles each time and you do not have to wait with the vehicle for pick up. AAA would assume I would wait on the side of the road in my car for sometimes as much as 4 hours before pick up, not to mention the delays that happen because other tows (like car accidents) took precedence. Nationwide doesn't need you to stay and doesn't expect you to, has better service and is cheaper. If you use Nationwide, I highly recommend the extra package.
