Title: Questions??
Post by: anarchocapitalist on March 15, 2009, 02:06:41 am

so this will be my first year attending. I'm super excited. Im flying in from California. I am Very much looking forward to meeting you liberty lovin folks out there. So what town in NH should I fly into? Is there carpooling going on from certain parts of the state? Should I rent a car? Is there a pre Porc fest meet up? Im on a real tight budget because I will be joining you folks up there permanently by either late October, or early November so if I could avoid renting a car that would be great. I have plenty of a budget for gas ;) any info would be great.

Manchester, NH is likely the best place to fly into.  Burlington, VT is another option but the airport is generally more expensive, car rental is more expensive, and it will be harder to carpool from VT.

You could likely carpool with someone to and from Manchester but you will need to be flexible with them.  Maybe plan your return flight to leave Monday, instead of Sunday.  Then stay with someone in Manchester and have them drive you to the airport on their way to work Monday morning or something.

There are no official carpools organized and I don't know of any in the past.  I guess there is a chance that could happen this year.  Someone would need to organize it, though.

You'll need to fly into Manchester - or Boston and take the Flight Line van to Manchester. Not sure if there are any organized car pools to get to Lancaster - and it is well over a 2 hours drive from the airport. I would suggest posting your arrival time here and 1. see if anyone offers for you to ride up with them, or 2. trying to pool resources with others arriving at similar times to rent a vehicle and head up together.

Some people will be camping all during the week prior.

Check the other thread called "Helping Porcs."  There you should post your needs, in particular the arrival and departure dates/times.  We'll help you link up with others in the same situation.
It may work out that there will be a bus tour for PorcFest participants mid-week which will go through Manchester; in that case we might be able to pick folks up and bring them up to the campground in Lancaster.  From there it will be easy enough to find a ride back to Manchester on Sunday.
