I have been contemplating having an event. I am not sure how good of and event it might be but I would like to here some thoughts from everyone on my idea.

I was thinking that I could put a slideshow together from my hike on the Appalachian Trail last year and display it. I could answer any questions that people may have about the Appalachian Trail.

If I decide to do this, I would have no idea where I could do it. Any idea would be helpful too.

That would be the other thing to consider, how many people would like to attend. Dan your right, it really does not have to be a geoevent.

Sounds like a great idea to me. I would certainly try to be there, event or not. Sorry I don't have any suggestions for where to have it, I think it depends on how many might be there, and where the attendees are traveling from. I enjoyed following your trek blog. P

There's a nice little theater in Fort Andorss in Brunswick. I'm sure there would be plenty of us to chip in on expenses.

Thank Tat. I did not see a price on there web site. I sent them an email. I don't think it is going to be cheap though.

If it is on a non-workday, I'm in! I'd love to see your pics and hear some trail stories! Might even be able to bring PedalChick along for the ride :)

I'd love to offer Windsor School, but they don't charge and I don't want to take advantage of their generousity. I'm always after them to have groups such as ours, pay the custodians. Maybe if we took up donations?

I would gladly pitch in some $$ for the custodians.

It's in the school... I'm a Health teacher.... my guess would be, NO.

How about Root Beer?:)

Hey Rick.... How far are you willing to travel? I've often hosted meetings at Eastern Maine Community College in Bangor - rooms for free. AV aids, projector screens, probly even an LCD projector, tables, chairs, ample parking. Let me know.

Hotel Brdad-Msteelee still has rooms available if you choose to go this route, Rick.

Free Wifi, a few toys for kids, and I think the pillow in that room might have some mint ice cream stuck to it. Can't beat it for the price.

I like this ideal and with Dave's offer it sounds even better. Now I need to work on my presentation. I have the slideshow all put together but it is a long slideshow. I would not want to bore people to death. I have about 780 photos in my slideshow out of over 4,000 that I took.

Hey don't forget us out-of -staters too. Would love to see you post a power point presentation online so we could all see it.

I think that most of Rick's pictures are posted on his Trail Journal blog (http://www.trailjournals.com/photos.cfm?trailname=3506). :D:D

(And then again... Maybe not. I don;t see the entire trip... )

Oh I kept up with his journal throughout his whole trip, I just thought he took a lot more than what he posted on his blog. Remember I live in Gainesville Ga where he started his trip and even summited Springer Mt the day he summited Katahdin,which was pretty cool.

I stopped posting pictures to my journal early on and started posting them to my facebook page instead.

It will be a ways off right now. I am still getting settled in and taking care of some issues since my return. If it is not an event I will still post it here.

If you had the equipment, I own the Bohemian Coffee House, downtown Brunswick, so we can just plain use it after hours (3pmSunday and 6:30pm other days) there are huge windows so if projecting onto screen It would be better after dark. I have about 50 seats. If you think you might be interested just let me know. I like the Frontier, but it would be pricey, or at least more than free:D. let me know

Just realized, sold extra chairs, we have 26 chairs but lots of room for more, and can always borrow some

I will keep this in mind. That would be closer for me but it would also depend on how many people are interested in showing up.
