So I'll be graduating soon with a B.A. in computer science. I've been thinking of participating in the FSP for some time, but with school and all, its never been a realistic possibility until now. With PorcFest XI starting the week after my graduation, I figured it would be a good chance to meet some people living in NH and participating in the FSP, as well as see how I enjoy NH itself.
I've already bought my travel ticket and registered for PorcFest, and I'm really excited to see NH and meet new awesome people; but I honestly have no idea where to start as I try and figure out how to prepare.
I need to figure out how I'll be getting to Roger's from Boston, as well where I'll be staying once I'm at the campground. I'd really like to make a few friends I can meet up with before I go; rather than having a long, lonely greyhound ride all the way there. At the very least it would be nice to arrive at PorcFest knowing some people, even if not in person yet. Meeting new people is a bit hard purely through the internet though - and I'm definitely more of the face-to-face type when it comes to socializing with new people. I'm not sure what the best platform would be to talk with some people and make a few friends before I make the trip. Perhaps I'm already using that platform...
If you have any suggestions about meeting people, or any other general suggestions for a first time PorcFest attendee/ potential mover, I'd really appreciate the input.
