My family may be ditching after the Big E to get home for home work etc. Do you think I would be able to arrange a ride to the brunch from the hotel and then
a ride back to the Boston area after the podcast? I would be happy to pitch in for tolls and gas. I just do not want to miss the podcast. I am really looking forward to it.

Big E attire

The previous few messages made me think a bit about what to wear to the Big E. I've been before and wanted to let those new people know that there is a lot of walking involved with the Big E. Not as much as you might get at say, a day in Epcot, but still a lot of walking. So first item on the list is comfortable shoes. Keep in mind that some of this walking will be on dirt/mud so don't go for style so much as protection.

Second, The weather in at the Big E then will likely be just fine. Typical comfortable 70's in the day time with low humidity. But, it could be something else. Last year on the day I went it started to rain in the early afternoon and pretty much washed out the rest of the day. So, the second item is a disposable poncho. Start checking the weather forecast for Springfield MA a few days before the meet to get a good idea of what to expect. Right now the 10 day forecast shows 80 degrees and 10% chance of rain.

Third; Much of the fair is outside so you will be in the sun more than you realize. Bring a hat and sunscreen.

Identification - as in how to recognize fellow DIS'ers in the Big E. Good question. I'm probably going to have my DIS Unplugged T-shirt on. Or my DIS hat. If you see me and I don't recognize you, don't be afraid to say something - I'm really bad at remembering names/faces but always happy to meet another DIS'er.

We are really looking forward to this! So bummed that we have to miss the Sunday event because of other commitments, but we'll be sure to look for everyone on Friday and Saturday. You won't be able to miss us, we'll be the family with smiles on our faces and wearing something Disney related

I'll have to see if I can find a more current picture than the one in my signature line maybe?

Hi Joe,

We just finished making the credentials packets. They will be handed out at your first event. For those of you doing the Big E as your first event you can pick your packet up either from the Hotel or from me... I will email you all my contact info and more inside scoop tomorrow.

1 week to go!!!
