RE: Octoberfest - OK. I'm thinking of maybe October 29, so we can make it a semi-Halloween celebration as well? I'll be travelling the week ending in the 21st, so that weekend is out.
I have lots of parking at my place, which is in Topsham on the Foreside Road, set off in the woods a bit. I also have a good-sized garage we could use to hold it in inclement weather. And a semi-finished basement with a wood floor in case anyone wants to bring a sleeping bag and, err, sleep off any potential Octoberfesting or just rest up for the voyage home.
If anyone knows of a better location we can get in the area, though, I'm open.
