2016 Minnesota State Fair, Day 2

2016 Minnesota State Fair, Day 1


Now that’s more like it!   It’s been a fairly disappointing fair season thus far with below-average hauls in Iowa and Missouri and a local county fair that was merely okay.  But the Minnesota State Fair came through as usual on … Continue reading

2016 Missouri State Fair

2016 Iowa State Fair, Day 2


It’s never entirely predictable what days you’re gonna have a demographic of fairgoer helpful to sightings, but there are some days I look at the entertainment lineup and know I could be in for a weak night.  For this year’s … Continue reading

2016 Iowa State Fair, Day 1


There are some days fetishing at the fairs that don’t come together, and this was one of them.  My fear is that with smoking in decline, diminishing returns of quality sightings will become the new normal but I’m not blaming … Continue reading

2016 Local County Fair


Tuesday Night I used to go in to every fair season brimming with unbridled jubilation at the endless potential for sightings bliss.  In the last few years I’ve learned to temper that jubilation some as smoking rates among my preferred … Continue reading

Real-Time Fair Sightings Overview


As a teenager, after years of regular attendance at county and state fairs, I had my first taste of the smoker sightings the venue is capable of.   As I came to terms with my smoking fetish in the late 1990s, … Continue reading

2015 Minnesota State Fair, Day 1


Still the king!  A decade ago I added the Iowa State Fair to my annual August fetish tour and just last week I tried out Missouri’s state fair.  But the great Minnesota Get-Together which I’ve been fetishing at unofficially since … Continue reading

2015 Iowa State Fair, Day 2


As always, I took a midweek afternoon second junket to the Iowa State Fair last evening, although for the first time it occurred on a Thursday evening rather than the typical Wednesday evening.  Why the change?  November weather in August!  … Continue reading

2015 Iowa State Fair, Day 1


My first full day at the Iowa State Fair is in the books for 2015.  I don’t know where to set the expectations bar at the ISF lately.  In 2012 and 2013, I had a few very bleak days but … Continue reading

2014 Minnesota State Fair, Day 2

2014 Iowa State Fair, Day 3


I adjusted some things in my summer schedule, most notably moving my mid-August road trip up to the 4th of July weekend since the 4th fell on a Friday this year, and by doing so was able to free up … Continue reading

2014 Iowa State Fair, Day 1


After a couple of very mellow years in a row, I walked into my all-day Saturday fetish safari at the Iowa State Fair with downwardly revised expectations. The daytime hours in particular were near sightingless wastelands in 2012 and 2013 … Continue reading
