Carpool to the Common Ground Country Fair

Many of our meetup members will be going to the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity Maine this year.  

Please use the comments area of this page to indicate when you might be going (days/times) and if you'd like to carpool from your location.  Based on that you can send messages to each other to organize details and trade mobile phone numbers.

Portland-area folks are encouraged to use the Park-and-Ride locations, though other folks may certainly find other meeting points from their parts of the state!

    I would like to get there Friday morning. I would need a ride there only, as I will be camping overnight and have a ride back set up. I will of course chip in for gas. I live in Portland Maine and without a car.

      Sylvia, I am so sorry I missed this message. I would have been happy to help. Too late now. :(

      Hi Brian, thanks, and no worries! I found a friend who was going up yesterday afternoon, and she delivered the flyers. Hope you had a good time there. :)

    Is there one rideshare space available
    from greater Portland to the Fair?

    Thanks, Don

    Hi all, I have a stack of flyers I'm trying to get to a fellow organizer at the Fair as early as possible on Friday (they'll be at the 350 Maine table), and wondering if someone would be willing to bring them up for me? I live in Portland and transport myself by bike, although if you were a little outside of town, I could work on borrowing a car and getting them to you this evening or tomorrow morning. I'd be happy to pitch in some money for the effort or bake some delicious sourdough bakery treat in exchange. Thanks so much!

      I'm still trying to decide if I'll be car-pooling to Climate March in NYC, so not sure I'll be along in person.

    We didn't have time to organize it this year, but would people be into us booking a portland to unity shuttle bus to the fair next year (from the resilience hub or from the marginal way park and ride)?

      I would be interested in that - I wish there was more camping nearby!

    I'm looking for a ride anytime on Saturday. My boyfriend is meeting me there so I won't need a ride back. Thanks!

    I am leaving from Lewiston/Auburn at 4ish/5ish Friday and coming back in the evening on Saturday. BTW does anyone on the way from LA to Unity have a small tent I could borrow?

    I'm going at kind of a random time (late Friday night) as I have a volunteer shift and plan To be there all through the weekend... anyone interested is more than welcome to ride share.
