Hotels, B&Bs and inns fill up quickly, so we highly recommend making your reservations early if you are even considering joining us. At this time of year, hotels have no need to negotiate.

If you miss out on any of the above, try TripAdvisor for other choices. Take advantage of the long weekend to return to some of your favorite workshop locations or explore others.

Airport:
The nearest major Airport is Portland, ME (PWM, about an hour and a half away). Other possibilities are Manchester, NH (MHT, two hours and twenty minutes minutes to the south) or Logan Airport in Boston, MA (BOS, about two and three-quarters hours away).

Travel Agent:
For those who want help with reservations, we highly recommend Paula Jaye at Largay Travel in North Andover, MA. She is delightful and savvy, has been in the business for over 25 years, and has traveled extensively in the US and Caribbean, as well as in Europe, South America, Asia, and Africa.  She also has access to resources unavailable to us mere mortals and can often find fares that are below the ones on the Internet. 

With domestic fares, she does need to charge a fee, but for many, it is well worth it. Call Paula at 978-372-0226 on the east coast or e-mail her.  It is not our custom to recommend outside travel resources, so this lets you know how highly we regard Paula.

Please note that in cases where we negotiate special rates with our hotels, you must use our links and make your reservations yourself. Those cases will be noted under Accommodations above.

Flying with Photo Equipment:
It is always good to check with TSA and your airline before traveling by air.  Currently, TSA regulations note:

"You may carry one (1) bag of photographic equipment in addition to one (1) carry-on and one (1) personal item through the screening checkpoint.  The additional bag must conform to your air carrier's carry-on restrictions for size and weight.  Please confirm your air carrier's restrictions prior to arriving at the airport."

They do remind everyone that not all airlines will allow this, so you may want to select your airline based on their willingness to work with photographers...

"Air carriers may or may not allow the additional carry-on item on their aircraft. Please check with your air carrier prior to arriving at the airport."

If you are a member of a photo association, carry your membership card. It may help you, but that is not a guarantee.

Always check back with the TSA website for the latest updates!

Because we stop in locations where the roads and streets may be narrow and parking minimal, we encourage, in fact insist on, car sharing. It is also friendlier to our environment.

If you are interested in sharing a rental car with others, let us know. We'll pool those who respond and get you in touch with one another to make your own plans.

We can't guarantee that there will be takers, so we also recommend that you rent a car, as you can always cancel later. That way, you won't find your car of choice no longer available.
