Common Ground Fair 2009

My friend Tim and I decided to ride our bikes to the fair from Portland. It was great, but more difficult that most rides because of our camping gear and clothes.  Loved every second of it!

Working with MOFGA, I was able to create a new volunteer job for myself. As the Internet Farmer might do, we wanted to record some speakers who discussed topics in areas that MOFGA does not have a regular specialist for so that anyone can learn.  Being the Internet Farmer, I of course agreed, and hope to see a podcast of this great material someday.

Enjoy the photos and recordings…

The audio files are in a very raw form, and each is about one hour. There is several minutes of dead air at the beginning of a couple of recordings, so be patient or click on the bar to fast forward a bit.
