No, count of sleepers seems to be 200-300 with a mid 20s median from

the first reply I got. So I guess slight increase. The 500 was around

8 or 9 so was probably from earlier. I'll try to triangulate, honestly

it's hard to do this at night.

 

Also we got a rather stupid troll complaining about weird foreign

musical instruments and hippies (the only instruments I've seen

mentioned being a banjo >.> what is more american than a banjo) so

sorry if it seems like I'm taking it out on you for the hippie thing.
