http://www.harvestfair.net/2013/04/25/preparing-for-the-harvest-fair/#commentsThu, 25 Apr 2013 00:00:00 +0000adminhttp://www.harvestfair.net/?p=17There are three things you are going to need when going to the Harvest Fair in San Bernardino. You will need transportation (duh), you will need to lock-up (also, duh) and you will need to bring your appetite. Unless you’re a local, a plane might be the best way to go and, as far as the home, if you’re particularly concerned then you might need to check out a site like www.WirelessAlarmSystems.com.
Transportation: People swear by the plane, especially those of you living on the East Coast. However, if you’re a little more inland, then trains or buses are a must. Why? Because the view going into San Bernardino this time of year is absolutely breathtaking. Calling it a scenic route is the understatement of the century.
Lock-up: We mentioned a home security system but that’s really not a MUST. You could get by just as easily with putting a hold on the mail and putting in some timer lights or motion lights. You just need to make sure you have a home to come home too.
Appetite: Of all the fairs to pig out at, the Harvest Fair is probably the healthiest and you’ll find no shortage of healthy and delicious foods to sample and enjoy.
