After five straight years, it looks like we'll have to skip BeastBuzz this year. There are a number of scheduling issues. We could still do it, but without the ERT, unfortunately, and most of the people I talked to wouldn't come if that were the case.
I'm glad this thread went up. I was just thinking about the trip me and three friends are taking this year, and it just so happened that it would be that same week as last year. When I couldn't find anything, I just assumed that it hadn't been posted yet.
KI is the last park on the trip, and Saturday was an option if Friday fell through. In reality though, I don't think I could survive another BeastBuzz!:) In restrospect, it's probably a good thing we didn't have a schedule ahead of time. Getting there before 9 a.m. in the morning for the Beast walkback tour after being up until 2:30-3 a.m. in the morning trying to find a motel/hotel room would not have been fun.
Granted, had I known what I know now--"reasonably-priced" hotel/motel rooms being almost impossible to find the night before, 40,000 people in a park on one day, massive traffic jams just to get into the park from either side of the freeway, leaving even earlier so we wouldn't have missed the registration check-in, it wouldn't have been so stressful.
And anyone even seriously attempting the "quiz" (treasure hunt doesn't sound right) should check their sanity at the door! It should've said "PKI-locals only" at the top of the sheet!:)
I, for one will miss it this year as a trip JR Villain and I were planning was going to land us at KI in time for Beastbuzz. We were just waiting on the date to be scheduled. Oh well better luck for next year as it won't deter me from making the trip this year.
