Fredericksburg for stay-at-homes
- It sounds great that people are able to put together the 3-day "Texas Renewable Energy Roundup, Green Living and Sustainability Fair" this September. Part of me would like to go, but traveling with the family makes this a long shot.
I wonder if the fair organizers, or somebody close to them, might be able to put together a bunch of literature so us "vicarious travelers" might be able to buy it and get exposed to the ideas at the fair. It's my hope that since some of us cannot be there, we could "read about it" instead. I would consider a price for such a literature package reasonable up to about $75.
Hopefully if someone had the creativity and enterprise to do this, it could become a profit center (and if you want, send all profits to some worthy cause). Just an idea I wanted to throw out, I expect the fair will be great for attendees in any event.
Best wishes -- Mark Johnson
