MREA Energy Fair!!!!!

In case you didn't know, the MREA energy fair is going on next weekend!

http://www.the-mrea.org/energy_fair.php

Is anyone planning on going to it?

I will be working out in California all week and flying back rediculously early on that Saturday morning, which means I could still get a few hours sleep and then drive up to the fair and be there Saturday night.

I am planning on bringing the electric cycle up, but I still have to check with the guy who runs the alternative vehicle show part of the event.

If anyone IS going there, I could really use a place to crash Saturday night, if you have a camping space you can share, let me know!!!

Thanks,

-Ben

Thanks for the reminder Ben. I knew this was comming up but had totally forgot about it. I'll have to go up for at least one day. Maybe we could arrange a time/place to meet up for a while?

I've been reading about it for years, but on a charity worker's income, it's hard to get there. Long drive, too.

Take pictures, share them here! And I'll look for the back of your head in the next issue of Home Power Magazine.

Well, I'm gonna head up tomorrow. Anyone want to meet up? I'm not familiar with the fair as this is my first time up there.
