    Cool Some of your favorite things that remind you of fall/Halloween during off season.

    Whats some of your favorite things that remind you of fall/Halloween during off season. I myself just the thought of sitting on the Couch on a nice Fall evening with the windows open and a nice breeze blowing in while eating a delicious bowl of chilli watching College football wearing your favorite hoodie and the sound of leaves rustling in the wind from outside the window...ahhhh gives me chills. Or when im outside the sound of someone trimming there tree using a chainsaw the very sound of it causes vivid memories of chainsaw brawls in a haunt to come rushing back through the memory terminals in my brain. Oh how id love to smell the smell of fog machine smoke right now ahhh lol Or the thought of a warm toasty bon/campfire out in the country on a wonderfully breezy night with a perfect canvas of stars laid out in the sky as if somebody carelessy sprinkled salt on a black backdrop, just the mystery of the unknown that lays in the shadows is quite spine tingling After writting and thinking about this my Readiness level for Halloween has just sky rocketed lol Let me in on your thoughts you guys think of that brings you right back to Fall/Halloween ENJOY!

    Every evening I usually sit out on the porch feeling the breeze. You can almost feel "it" in the air. That slight tease of whats coming. We also have fires about once a week where we invite friends/family over. Talk, tell stories, and make smores. That always puts me in the Fall mood.

    I would have to agree about the slight nip in the air. Always puts me in the mood.

    I have to completely agree with ya, you can seriously feel it in the air. Specially in early September you almost become unsettled and get this feeling inside specially in the evenings when it cools down,

    Love the nighttime nip in the air. We do bonfires at our marina on weekends and listening to the wood crackle and making smore's puts me in the fall mood. As for Halloween feeling, I really have to say it's this site. Nothing makes my juices flow more then seeing others ramping up their prop making, asking questions and filling my head with ideas and plans for the future.

    I live near the coast..sometimes in summer it gets chilly at night and a fog rolls in....sometimes you can smell a fire off in the distance....not to mention any time there is a full moon.

    As far as the off season goes I lke how the crickets chirpping is more active in August. Always reminds me that Fall is just around the corner. I also like the cool mornings and evenings in September, especially up north. Although I live in IA we always go up to Duluth, MN for Labor Day to camp. Usually have a couple nights up there that get down close to freezing. The Lake Superior air definitely reminds me of fall. Just wish the Haunted Ship was open by Labor Day, always wanted to go through. Can't find time to go in October.
