The second part of the weekend at Windber’s Kerouac
Fest ’05 consisted of the parties that Blair put on at
the Grand Midway Hotel he owns. People came from all
over – an eclectic mix of the seekers and the sought
after - where every time you turned around you met a
new friend. Some of the most interesting people and
everyone immediately at ease with everyone else as
friends introduced friends who introduced friends. My
brother Jack drove in from Harrisburg for two days.
Many of Blair’s film maker friends drove or flew in
from both coasts. We read from On The Road and from
our own works. It was John’s and Aimee’s birthday so
a huge cake shaped like “The Road” was brought out.
And in the middle of it was a huge motorcycle rally
called “The Dog Run” where thousands of bikers showed
up right outside of Blair’s place and roared off on
down the road.
