Connecting with Friends

Connecting with friends at the Burgoo? Few people have been successful getting a good cell phone signal while in the middle of town (something about the burgoo vapors...) You can always leave a message at the Information table in the park, but otherwise, you'll have to rely on the good ol' fashioned method of face-to-face conversation.
