If you already live here and would like to be a host/greeter to one of the bus tour groups, let me know.  You can help convince prospective participants to MAKE THE MOVE!

Stops on Wednesday will be in Seacoast area, probably Dover, Durham, and Portsmouth.
Stops on Thursday will include Concord and Manchester.

If you want a ride back up to Lancaster from any of the stops, that can be arranged if space is available.  But you'd need a ride home at the end of the festival.

Hi, I'm going to be the tour guide for Seacoast bus tour.

Just letting any interested forum readers know that the Seacoast tour will consist of:
-Mt. Washington/North Conway drive-by
-Rochester, Dover drive through
-Lunch in beautiful historic downtown Portsmouth / meet & greet with Seacoast liberty folks
-Beautiful drive along NH's fabulous Gold Coast [Portsmouth, Rye, Hampton]
-Fun in the sun afternoon at Hampton Beach: arcades, souvenir shops, swimming, lounging, fried dough!
-Back to camp via Exeter, Manchester, Concord

Since it is a 3 hour haul from Lancaster to Ports, we will be leaving early. 8:00 AM.
Lunch will be in our own dining room at McMenemy's Pub in Ports. Haven't the final menu yet, but prices should be ~$7-$10.
Bring beach gear: towel/swim suit/etc; money for souvenir shops, arcades, etc, if you like.

-Todd

8:00am is fucking early to leave a campground.  I won't even be there so don't volunteer me but I'd either offer to wake the folks up at 7am or move it to 9am if I was you.  Maybe you can ask folks if they want you to wake them up at 7am.  If so, get their campsite # and the color of their tent.

Watch the cussing there, young man. I thought this was a family forum.

Yes 8:00 AM is fucking early, but the Seacoast is fucking far from Lancaster, 7 hours drive time total. Damn, now I'm cussing!

If you are going to allow anytime to see or do anything, and get back to camp before pitch black dark or very late, then earlier is better. I was worried about the time, too, and have discussed it with the Porcfest organizers and my Seacoast compadres. The general consensus from those folks was that, given the distance, having people meet at the bus at 8, and then hit the road soon thereafter, seemed reasonable, if uncomfortable.

the Grafton Welcome Wagon will be open during Porcfest except on Saturday, so if you want to drop by the farm sometime, you are welcome to visit with the Porcupines that are staying in town during the festival.

I am driving up from VA.  Is there a resource to get addresses and/or maps to these places of interest?  Grafton Farm, I assume, is your private property?  Folks will be gathering there before PF?? Excuse my ignorance......just trying to get my fuzzy little ducks in a straight row.

Hey!  Thanks Russell.  I guess I'll be stopping by on my way up to Rogers.  Not sure as to which day I'll be there. I should be leaving VA on Thursday pm or Friday am.  My plans are not set in stone and so I could be meandering through most any day. I may hit Pete Seeger's little shindig in NY this weekend or possibly the Stonehenge Festival in Trout Run, PA before I find my way to NH.

Wednesday's tour to the Seacoast was canceled for lack of ridership.  There is a possibility of doing the trip on Friday.  Ask up at the registration desk for details.
