    Hello all. My name's Karl and I'm starting a trailer haunt this year in NEPA. I've been doing yard haunts for a few years and this past year I did my first trailer for halloween night. Everything went great and as to be expected, I can't get next year out of my head. I'm a total newbie when it comes to professional haunts and am excited I found this forum to soak up info and provide some where I can.
    I don't mean to ramble, but one question of many I had was I'm interested in going to a convention this spring and thought Transworld would be a good choice. Could I get in there only being a start-up? Work wants vacation requests and I was going to put in for the time.

    Thankyou in advance,

    If a drunk haunter fondles your Wife or girlfriend, we all know who is and he's probably not that drunk, he's just showing you and yours what a good actor he is.
    Feel free to punch him out since I've already given you this "heads-Up".
    You're Welcome.

    Thanks for the info. I'm looking foward to it all if I can get my foot in the door. I'm trying to decide the best way to register the business being that it's anything but traditional. This is where being a truck driver instead of a business man is affecting things.

    P.S. if anyone wants to hit on my wife feel free; but I can't be held responsible for what she does to them
