    I seem to work for all of the oil companies too driving all over the place every day.


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax. These posts have been made by professional post makers, do not try this type of posting on your own without extensive training, lovely assistants and a trusty clown horn.

    So the question is...do you do it for the love, or so you actually make some money at it?

    For the love but if you are not making any money it will come to a end.
    p.s. I do not run a pro haunt, I want to some day soon but for now it is a home haunt.

    We do it for the love and hope to make money in the process. I guess the honest answer is we do it for both, but it's the passion that drives me! :wink:

    Passion for Haunting doesn't leave any whip marks on one's back, but it can rip those back muscles lifting and working frantically to get things ready, fixed........

    I'm a full-time college student with a part-time job and a full-time love of haunting. I'd say that's all in a good days work! -Tyler

    I'm a Shmuck. I run a costume shop all year. I just LOVE the added time and reponcibility of running a haunt during my 'busy season.' I love it so much, that I ran myself into enormouse debt over it and got nothing back out of it. (Oh wait! I did cut my foot with a shovel to the tune of a $1,000 trip to the emergency room - no insurance.... AND I broke the car window out on the way to the haunt in super cold weather when I didn't have the time or money to get it fixed and got to drive around with no window in the 20 degree weather for two weeks... AND some jackass side swiped my mother's van in the parking lot of said haunt. Luckily, mom has said nothing about that big scrape all the way down the side of her van - NOR has she noticed that one of the back doors won't open anymore.) My husband desided to start a side line business on the internet this past year so that he would have MORE TIME to devote to the haunt... You know, the one that LOST money two years in a row. :roll:

    I'm taking a year off. I can't stand this much FUN!

    I take a little time off every October and just really stress out a lot.

    I am a full time magician/illusionist/hypnotist and own my own magic & costume shop. I am fortunate in that because of my performances, I can take as many shows as I want during the month of October & my performances help fund the haunt, although, this year for the 1st time, my haunt is self sufficiant. Meaning I made enough in ticket sales in 2006 to pay for this years haunting.

    Thats a great succes story dirk.. Alot of people open up haunts and expect to bring in millions their first year. It took my five years to even break even. Luckly next year will be pure profit...
