Hi. I haven't been logged in for quite a while, but I want to start with a thanks for all the hard work people are doing.
There are a couple of questions about this year's LF that I'd love to get answers to, but let's go with the big one. A little background: I've sorta been to two Porcfests, but, frankly, neither was the greatest experience for a person who doesn't know anyone already in the movement. I basically walked around with beers (and my Girlfriend one year) while watching other people have good times, starting the occasional conversation with other solitary souls who also wished there were some logical or organized way to meet people.
I'd like to go to my first LF, I really would, but I'm very hesitant because of the experiences I had at PF. To be fair, I did not camp at PF and only went over for a few day trips, but I'd be doing the same thing at LF.
I've heard all the "meet people on the boards first" and "just go up and introduce yourself" stuff. That doesn't really work.
Are there some arrangements to allow people new to the area to meet one another and those people already in NH? If not, I'd be willing to help someone put something together. I think it should be recurring since some people come to these events for single days, and that seems to be encouraged by organizers.
