Should I wait till registration to buy my plain tickets? I dunno if the dates will change for porcfest but i figure the earlier i get the tickets the cheaper the flights will be. Is there lots of events going on leading up to porcfest? I would mind flying in earlier if so or just to look around.

I don't know about any events, but it could be neat to hang out with some porcs before hand.  See about staying at one of the porc manors.

My first Porcfest - I'm excited  ;D. Will come alone unless the wife can join. Will have retired just several days before (June 18th). Booked a room at the hotel.

Congo Rats! Great timing. Porcfest can be a sort of celebration of your retirement.

The weekend is when it really heats up, but the weekdays leading up to that is when a smaller, more cozy crowd starts to gather and party very spontaneously and casually. I came early the last two fests and I personally enjoy that part quite a lot. Depends on your tastes. Also, coming early to tour NH a bit is a great idea. I rented a car my first year and it was a good investment.

Dale is correct.  The week of camping and hanging out is Porcfest. I would put Saturday aside for touring and avoid the speeches.

I thought we were avoiding most speeches this year.

Don't leave on Saturday, but hang where you want to hang and avoid what you want to avoid. Coming early is better than just showing up for the weekend. If you have never been among many porcs, you need time to adjust and acclimate.

Some people will start camping as early as Monday of that week, and most leave on Sunday.  If you can visit for a week, you'll have that many more opportunities to tour the state, meet other movers, attend Taproom Tuesday, Seacoast Wednesday, and more.
Personally, I like some of the speeches, particularly the "we made the move" panel discussion.  But to each his own . . . it's the libertarian way.

What Lloyd suggests is a really good idea if you have already been to a couple Porcfests or at least one.  However, if you have never been to a Porcfest, the Friday, Saturday, and sometimes Sunday (or Th) speeches, panels, and talks may be extremely useful.

It's true. Keep in mind that Lloyd is a seasoned veteran of the FSP. :) He's heard all of those speeches. I went to more of those my first year and I enjoyed them. Went to a lot less my second year. Of course I was staffing my table in the vendor area most of the weekend so I'm not sure if I would have seen more otherwise. Anyway, I now look at Porcfest as a week-long ROCKIN' party in the woods with all my good friends here in NH and lots of new people that I'm looking forward to getting to know better. You hear some of us old farts talking down the seminars and such but take it with a grain of salt.

about the picnic hall i mentioned that is down on a field on its own... i believe it is a shed type building with open walls, for what it's worth. i'm supposed to go up with taxinator next week to take a fresh look. i can report back after that...
  

I believe this would be the ideal spot for the "Fun Tent."  It is little more thana a 5-10 minute walk from anywhere in the campground, and eliminates the need for much planning.

This sounds like the "Dream Fun Tent" as it has a real roof, open sides and is away from the main area.  I imagine we would be able to make a fire near it as well (?)

PS: Dale is the youngest looking "old fart" you'll ever see...but he does consider himself "an Olde Tymer" when it comes to the FSP movement.... (like Lloyd).

And I think I figured out a way to get Lloyd to attend a speech...Make him a speaker!  Lloyd, if you speak, I promise to attend your sermon speech.  What would be the subject?

Lloyd doesn't believe in "subjects", I'll wager.  Only "voluntary equals". ;D

IIRC the picnic area is somewhat small, but there's no reason people couldn't stand around outside the sheltered bit if it's not raining. And there's a big fire pit close by too. Sounds like the perfect spot for the Fun Tent really.

How does it compare to the size of last year's tent?
