Time for Burning Porcupine 2011
« on: June 28, 2011, 07:48:27 am »

Burning Porcupine starts tomorrow (June29, 2011}  see

Burning Porcupine Festival began as both a protest of the FSP holding Porcfest at Gunstock and an introduction to Grafton.
As P'fest has moved back to Rogers and Burning Porcupine Festival's sponsor returned to P'fest, Burning Porcupine Festival is now an introduction to Grafton and an opportunity for folks that didn't make it to P'fest to get together and, for folks who went to P'fest and wished it (the hanging out part) didn't end. --LloydBob

The name is a parody of an event called Burning Man, with the vague intention for it to be a really wild party kind of like that. Instead it actually tends to be really laid back and not that freaky at all other than there are a shitload of anarchists hanging out by a campfire, hatin' on the gooberment, eating, drinking, smoking and generally having a good time. There are events, but one similarity is that Burning Porcupine is largely not a regimented and scheduled event. The participants bring to it whatever they want and that's what shapes it. --Dalebert

The event is held at the Hoyt farm in Grafton.  Google Maps-- Hoyt road, Grafton NH for directions.

Primitive camping-- no electric, wifi or water hookups, but the rates are better than Rogers (FREE)  

There are no motels in Grafton, so if tents are not your thing bring an RV.

Come to Grafton
It's not the middle of nowhere, but you can see it from here.
What happens in Grafton stays in Grafton.

Actually, FYI, Burning Porc dates back to PorcFest 2005 (before the move to Gunstock).  Russell, I, and a couple others were hanging out, and commenting that some of the folks were getting a bit wild, and anticipating that there would eventually need to be a split between the "official" event, and some other event, since the "powers that be" would start to get upset about things potentially causing friction.  Sort of like the split that resulted in the Underground.

So, when PorcFest moved to Gunstock, and that friction came to a head, Burning Porc started.  It was anticipated well before that; Gunstock was just the trigger.

Also, FYI, for anyone looking to attend, a friend has graciously offered a few tents for those who may not have their own camping gear.  Contact me for details.  Similarly, if you want a roof over your head, we have a camper available to rent.

"An armed society is a polite society" - this does not mean that we are polite because we fear each other.

We are not civilized because we are armed; we are armed because we are civilized..

Hey, is anyone up for doing a Ron Paul kick off event there?  They're advertising this on FB:

National Ron Paul 2012 Grassroots KICKOFF--JULY 2ND
You are Attending · Share · Public Event

and they have a bunch of these all over the country.  I can't find one in New Hampshire, yet, and it might be cool to do one of these up in Grafton on Saturday, since the two events coincide.
If you are interested in putting together an IT-creative firm to help provide jobs for liberty folks in the future, send me a Personal Message.
"The Free State Project is an agreement among 20,000 pro-liberty activists to move to New Hampshire, where they will exert the fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of government is the protection of life, liberty, and property."
