Rolling Meetup, Milwaukee to Albany, NY to Seven Springs, PA and back, Sept 14-24
 
Hi Everyone,

I'm going to be a speaker at the Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania on September 21-23, 2012.

My wife has relatives in NY State, so we are going to attempt a ROAD-TRIP with a Two-Year-Old! We'll be traveling from Milwaukee to Schenectady, NY, spend a few days there, showing the Little Girl to her Great-Grandmother, and then use Thursday Sept. 20th to travel from NY State to Seven Springs, PA.

We'll be driving the red gen 2 Hymotion Prius on the trip, and will try to have it shown off at the Clean Car Show at the Mother Earth Fair at least one day.

If you are somewhere on my route, and want to meet up, let me know! Best way I guess is to send me a private message through Ecomodder.

I'd be happy to talk electric vehicles, DIY culture, and anything else, in exchange for home cooking, and a 15-amp electric outlet.

We'll just be taking the most direct freeway route, but I'll have a GPS Smart phone with, so I can check in on the road, and have enough time to get just a little sidetracked.

Thanks,

-Ben Nelson

PS: Maybe I can tweet my location as I go! https://twitter.com/300MPGBen

Love to be there, but notice is too short and it's quite a ways from me - 5 hours +. It'd have to be an overnight trip, and we're not ready to do that as a family of 5 for something that probably only I would enjoy. Not really in good position to do it alone, either. :(

Right now, I'm in Ohio, staying at a Holiday Inn just off I-80/90, with the Prius parked around back. That way, I can plug in to an outlet on the building without the cord crossing the sidewalk or otherwise being in the way.

Ms. Sunshine said I could. Besides being the night clerk, she is also the manager on duty, and said it was OK. Yes, Sunshine is her real name... I asked.

Ha ha, that's TERRY with a Y, mister! :mad: :p

Yes, I would love to catch you on your way home, Ben. Sorry I didn't see this in time for your outbound trip.
Ken (Jethro Bodine) can testify to the comfort of the futon in the back room if you need an overnight pitstop, or I could meet you on the toll plaza if you want to keep rolling. But it would be an honor to meet THE bennelson (and fam) in the flesh.

Weather Spotter 09-15-2012 12:54 PM

sorry Terry :( my spelling sucks some days (most).

JethroBodine 09-15-2012 01:01 PM

Futon is very comfortable:thumbup:. ...And greatly appreciated on a long, HOT trip.

P.S. Thankyouthankyouthankyou.........:D
