If I leave now and maintain at least a brisk walking/kayaking pace I should make it there by Halloween. I'm gonna be really pissed if I go all that way to find you celebrating Halloween.

My old roommate and I would have a house party and setup cardboard gravestones with a dry-ice fog-blower at the front entrance with a gauntlet of scares you had to run on the drive walkway into the house and the front hall.
Nowadays a lot of people Setup a Flash camera at the best points and get reaction shots
Set them up to be downloaded and displayed inside party area, it adds a lot of fun after you go through.
BTW Diablo 1-2-3 background music is Appropriate.

Let me now what time you'll be here, I'll save some soup for you!
I DO like the idea of using Diablo music, I'm kicking my head for not thinking about that sooner, it certainly would have added a little extra to the already nice atmosphere's I've created over the years

Well my buddy was a Bass player in a band that played clubs in LA all the time so we had access to the equipment for free, but dry-ice is pretty cheep and you can use it with a pan of water and a fan in a semi enclosed area to contain it. A cell phone with a flash camera and a wireless connection and a computer that can display on the TV is pretty common now.
In any case you can do it cheep with some planning and thought or expensive. (or not at all)

I've searched high and low for dry-ice, you can't seem to buy it anywhere, you can order it online though, but have to pay with VISA (which I don't have and don't want to start with) and it seems rather expensive.
As far as the cellphone with a flash camera, they're rather expensive, in the order of 5 to 7 times the cost of my current one.
And then, the computer which can display on TV, I've had a lot of computers, but none of them was capable of that, it requires an extra card that doesn't come in the standard package, the computer that have it are roughly 2-4 times as expensive as my current one.
They're all great ideas, but I tend to go with a bare minimum of shopping when I make/invent stuff.
(and I do 2-3 years with a phone, and 5-7 years with a computer, so I don't buy new ones very often)
I'm a hard customer, I know

Really Strange I can get it lots of places but I'm not in Belgium
a lot of the machines use heat and fog juice and you can get rentals or hire they get used for leak detection and such as well but if it's not a option fake spider webs might do?
You do have cotton?
USB to TV sticks are Cheep over here.

Try a local ice cream shoppe for dry ice.

I've seen those fog machines, but don't they require a socket for power? Which are not available in the woods, I could go buy gasoline and a small generator for 500 euros, but that kinda defies the cheap solution again
And I can put USB sticks, which I have, into my TV, I just misunderstood your idea.
I thought you meant that the pictures/video's where streamed live to the television,
but you're actually referring to showing them after, silly (stupid) me...
