1 The drive in was ridiculous, backed up about 7km, though there was a courtesy bus 5km out that we got on instead of parking closer.
2 it was hot. Krystle almost collapsed when we were in the (massive) queue for a german hot dog.
3 it was full of people. Lots of people.
4 no chilli con carne.
The good points were the taste testing when there was space to move, and the number of chilli plants to choose from (i got a hot, and extra hot plant).
So yeah, it would have been better if it was 10-15 deg cooler, and if we got there much earlier, but i can't imagine us going through that again next year.
