Woki and I had a great time this weekend. We just got home and got things unpacked.
Special thanks to the organizers for putting their efforts and energy into this and a big shout-out to the sponsors who contributed items for the drawing. There was much "hey let me look at that for a minute" pawing around going on after the prizes were given out.
It was really nice to make new friends and to be able to relax and enjoy ourselves with you. I really got a kick out of the gearheads and equipment collectors- I would love to be both or either one. Thanks for toting out your stuff to show and tell.
I saw some really nice hammock setups and some pretty innovative rigs. Many mental notes were taken.
Woki and I hit the hot springs for a nice hour long soak just after we broke camp and helped tidy up the main meeting site. Then we headed for some place called Max Patch.
WOW! The recommendations to see this place did not come close to how beautiful and peaceful it was. I did NOT want to hike back to the car but the rain clouds that we watched roll across the mountains finally reached us and we had to head for the car.
Woki and I are absolutely going to make this an annual ritual if possible.
Thanks everyone for the great pot luck dinner and for that awesome cobbler/monkey bread. I ate way too much and totally blew my diet but that is OK. I am going to think back on how nice it was as I exercise and nibble on carrots.
Have we set a date for next year? :-)
