I've found a few analog (apug as well) photogs up here in the Damariscotta, Maine area and was wondering if any others would like to meet up every week or every other week to have coffee and talk shop at a local cafe?

We meet once or twice, and you indicated you were fond of your local (MA) processor and printer, an older gentleman, old-school type. Did you, or will you find a similar facility near you?

Is this the Jay...from the Cape? Do you have his number? He can do your processing if you'd like. If I'm not in a hurry..i'll mail things down to him.

Yep.
This may be useful to me, not right this minute, though, maybe early summer.

Sounds like a good excuse for an occasional road trip.

My feeling exactly.

Spent a lovely summer in Waterville, not too far from Damariscotta, a coupe of decades ago.

I'm up for it. Rockland area. Perhaps not every week but once in a while would be great.

new guy here, I'd be up for an occasional meetup (every couple of weeks or so)

I'm up in Old Town, so Rockland is the furthest south I can travel before the tourists starts me twitching and wanting to shoot someone 🤪 . Belfast would be even better.

All the people I meet are in my area or further south. If I come up to the Camden area I'll let you know...plenty of coffee shops in that area.

will do, seems like I need 9 more posts before that option is available. well, eight more after this one. I'll monitor this thread. There's always a chance that I'll wander over to Pemaquid Point in the near future, I'll let you know.

Drew B. can message Maineiac, and Maneiac can then reply.
If that doesn't solve the problem, the limitation can be manually removed by Sean, the site owner. Just make the request in a post and then Report that post and duplicate the request in that Report. It usually takes a couple of days before Sean can attend to it.
And I think the threshold is 20, not 10.

PM is safer than posting an email address.

What Sirius said - although it helps us moderators if you don't copy the email in the Reply :smile:
@jp498 - I hope you see this, buy in case that doesn't happen, perhaps someone participating in the thread can message him.

I lived in Spruce Head on the Clark Island Road for about 8 years, I really liked that area. I'm up in Old Town now.

I was in Belfast for a while. It was very pretty, and the wild black berries were delicious, but when it got to the end of October you could feel that winter would soon be barreling in, so we fled back to San Francisco. You were lucky to get a "yep" or a "nope" from the locals. The woman we were staying with said you had to stay there 5 or 10 years before that changed.

She had moved her entire (small) home to another part of her land and turned it to keep it from facing north. I thought that seemed extreme until she mentioned that her neighbor had done the exact same thing.

One amazing thing that happened was having my girlfriend wake me up at 3AM to come outside and see what she called the Northern Lights. Those lights weren't in the distance, they were swirling around us and all through the air like thin little ghosts! It was the first and only time I've experienced anything like that.

I would like to have a Northern [or Southern] experience.
