Can't be too large of an operation for $389K. How many rides can that be. Of course depends on the quality.
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

So what letter should we asign to this show? We've used X and Y.

I think we can safely rule out Dixieland-so I'd think a little regional show.

Unless somebody has first hand knowledge this one is going to be way too esoteric for us.

What's Big Rock worth? What's Jay Jessop's show worth? for $389k you're paying mostly for the route, right? Too hard without a detailed list of equipment (I mean hell, a top of the line food trailer costs around $150-200K right now)-and a route sheet, and naming the show would help too.

Only one thing to do. Matt has to buy the show so we can find out who it was.
For one dollar I'll guess your weight, your height, or your sex.

$389,000 wouldn't buy my generators.

You're telling me? I saw your show, remember? That was why I struck it right off so fast. So tell me, who do you think it is?

SideWinder, Did you miss this part of the ad?

"In an effort to protect the integrity of this show and route, specifics simply cant be outlined in this ad. This is to protect the current operators and any future owners as well."

I doubt they were truthful about the area and will they will be up front with serious parties when the time comes.

385K isn't going to buy much unless it's all worn out and in poor condition, or a really nice 5 ride festival unit.

There's a couple of shows around here that might be up for sale, but 385 is too much for one, and not enough for the other.

Nevermind SideWinder, You missed the point and I have realized this is like arguing with a 2nd grader.

I got a bet on Kentucky I turned it down

Now that we have that handled....

I cant imagine it is Geno's. The ad say there is a route and I know first hand that the Geno's route has been nearly 100% gobbled up.

My guess would be the ad owner is GoGator just trying to get a ride out of us...
