I remember visits to the local county fair in the small southern Minnesota county where I grew up dating back to 1983. I have a vague recollection of a couple of early sightings that intrigued me in the 1990s, but it wasn’t until 1999 when I got my first memorable sighting. In the years to come, I was never particularly aggressive about perusing the grounds for sightings for whatever reasons. That officially changed in 2005 when I had my breakthrough local county fair sightings year and scored three of my top-5 sightings that year after spending a few hours of significant fairgrounds exploration every night after the concerts I attended.
In the five years since, I’ve been considerably more aggressive, dedicating several hours of fetishing every night at the local county fair, with impressive results. The venue’s downsides include the smaller fairgrounds which leave one considerably more conspicuous while fetishing, and the fact that I still know a lot of people in this county and find myself frequently distracted by friends and relatives, not to mention paranoid about getting spotted by someone I know in the middle of an awkward fetish moment. Still, it’s a very productive location for sightings as smoking still occurs at above-average rates in my downscale, blue-collar home county, and it’s always a thrill to have it kick off fair season every summer.
