Update on Lodging,
I talked with and am Fwding his info,to wit.../
"My name is Steve Dobson, I own and operate The Aroostok Hospitality Inn, with two locations. One facility is located 4 1/2 from The Aroostok Centre Mall in Presque Isle, on Rte 164, and the second is located at 95 main street, in Van Buren. I still have a few rooms available in the Van Buren facility, and several at our Washburn/Presque Isle facility, on the date of your event."
FYI only, I have no info or specific recommendations on these places.

I have a second bed available in my room at the Hampton inn in PI.  Ali couldn't go and he thought Eric might need it but it sounds like he may be out as well.  i don't snore... much!   :cheers:

May also be able to accomodate enroute.  Shooting for spending Thursday night near the southern tip of Maine at this point.  Same for Monday night following the lobster feast.

It is like they say, if you don't like the weather in northern Maine, wait a minute.

Don't bank on the long range forcast.

Don't worry about those "5s" they could be 3s by next weekend.  We had frost in June.

I will be attending the Loring event and look forward to meeting some of you in person.  If you will be there and would like me to stop by and talk wind tunnel "stuff", please contact me via email and leave name, cell number or some way for me to find you at the event.

I don't think Bill has the concept of what's "comfortable" well in hand.  Bill, when it's in the mid-50s and sunny -- that's when folks up there and also in Michigan's Upper Peninsula -- will be out in the yard, wearing shorts and a cutoff t-shirt, working and just barely breaking a sweat.  Go past the college campus and there'll be guys playing frisbee wearing only shorts and shoes, and the girls will be lying on towels, wearing skimpy bathing suits, and grabbing some rays.

I imagine you'd look like an out-of-towner up there, walking around looking at the locals -- while wearing your parka and boots and thick gloves.  It's all in what you're used to, you know. . .
