One Day Set Up's

One day set up's are a bitch, and they blow big time, especially if you have 2 or three in a row.

So you drive like mad to the next city, as soon as you get there you start unloading, day or night, it doesn't matter.

Of course when you pull in at night you have no power and therefore no lights so you're doing everything in the dark. I broke my arm one time setting up in the dark. I stepped out of a trailer and couldn't see the steps, and of course put my hands out as I fell into the blackness, better my arm than my head.

The Carnival is a dangerous place to setup at times, and of course there's no workmans comp so be carefull, there's no sick days either, so don't get sick.

Bust your ass, that's the name of the game, hurry hurry hurry.

Oh, and if you do get hurt bad, or really sick, well fuck you, you're on your own.

Pretty harsh huh? But it's the truth.

No romanticising in this post.
