It sounds like I might be presenting near tillamook. 

Any interest in portland?

Any good video opportunities?

What does Presenting entail? Do we need to purchase tickets?  I'd love the opportunity to learn from you live & in person & would be happy to show you my BSF Grub cannon that is working quite nicely (it would fit in the back seat of my car).

My terms are this:

I will give a two hour presentation for $1.00 provided that there are 50 or more people in the audience.  If there are less than 50 people, I expect to be paid $200.

This assumes that it is something where I am already in the area - so there would be no travel expenses. 

I know there are lots of people that say "there is no way to know how many people will show up and I cannot afford $200."  Then don't ask me to come. 

Two hours of my time spent on permies/richsoil will reach more than a thousand people more than going to a presentation.  I like to present to large audiences, so I'm glad to do it.  But on more than one occassion I was persuaded to come present to a group of 80, only to arrive to a group of eight and be told "oh, yeah, I never got around to telling people about the presentation.  Sorry about that." or "I knew if I told you there would be only eight of us, then you wouldn't come, and I really wanted to hear you speak.  So I told you there were 80 of us.  Sorry about that."

The tillamook thing appears to be getting moved to mid-august.  More news as events warrant.

Tel:  I do not have deadlines for making plans.  Some of my best video footage came from somebody saying:  "hey, you know what would be cool?" and then we pop out to something awesome.

Ms:  grub cannon?  That sounds video worthy!

Brice:  how far from I-5 are you?  Do you have stuff that could make good video?  A cuppa coffee?  What - no super awesome organic meal?  And I loathe PMs - I far prefer email.

I'm 15 minutes from th I5, but can save more time than that coming by my way instead of using the freeway loop in Portland and the I-5 bridge if you are coming or going from northwest Portland or the western suburbs and the drive on the 30 is a lot more scenic than the same stretch on the 5 (they run mostly parallel on opposite sides of the Columbia till long view WA)

only thing I can think of for a video if I knew in advance you were coming by I could introduce my little Nigerian dwarf dairy goats and schedule a hoof trimming which is vital maintenance in most goat herds and kinda scary till you see how simple it is.

if its close to a meal time I'm always happy to offer a friend whatever I'm eating but as of yet its seldom anything amazing, good coffee though I always have.

oh and of course fell free to use email instead of pm's

I'm interested!  And 45 minutes (by motorized vehicle) SW of Portland, OR. I'll see what I can do to stir up at least 50 people.  Mid-August = hot and dry; so you'll be presenting outdoors and in the shade? 

What is IT that you present?  What should people expect?
Can you do your presentation in a wooded area?  Or do you need laser beams and microphones?

Hi Paul and all,

I just came across this post, and yes, there is an interest in Portland for you to speak. We will start working on it right away.

Thank you!

I am too far north but wanted to say thank you for one of the most inspiring  forums on the internet.  My life seems to be shaped by what I learn here, so thank you!
