Re: Thank You

What can I say, but echo the others' comments! Fantastic organization, great vendors, lots of fun folks to meet, great food. In all, a great time, in the perfect place for wheelin'! Thanks Jason & all of the volunteers (whom all I didn't get the chance to meet personally) for a fantastic time.

About the raffle, I kept thinking all weekend long, "I really need sliders, I really need sliders", and thanks to the generosity of Metal Tech, I now have some! Awesome sliders, guys!

Sorry ya got skunked, Gordon. I was gonna give you one of my sliders, but it just wouldn't look right with only one, buddy... You're right though, it was all for a good cause, and I would have been happy not winning anything at all, but just got lucky.

Athena & Bill, y'all are nuts (and I mean that in a good way, really), and thanks for leading us on Engineers and Cinnamon! And, kudos for strapping Tomas to Lake City when his rear diff broke. That's what it's all about, helping out a fellow wheeler when it matters most! I just hope Tomas got his rig back in time to do another run at a trail before he and the family had to leave Ouray.

Looking forward to next year, guys!

Re: Thank You

Jason, you are thanking US? All we did was show up, meet old and new friends, pig out on the great meals, check out all the great vendors and their stuff and go on some of the most outrageously beautiful 4 wheelin' roads in the country. There is truly NO WAY we can thank you enough for all that you and the rest of your team did to pull this off.
We're exhausted, but happy, and hope that everyone else is also!

Re: Thank You

Thank YOU, Jason, and the other organizers for putting on a great event. It was great to meet many of the forum members and put faces with names. I will do everything I can to make it again next year, even though the drive across the flatlands really sucks. Hmmm, they could always use another good professional woodworker in Colorado, right ? The San Juans are a great hidden gem and I will be sure to share my many photo memories with everyone I can. Thanks again.

Re: Thank You

My thoughts are that this year at the summit was awesome..thanks to all of the organizers and the those that helped make this a great event!! the meals were outstanding, the vendors IMO went overboard to make this event over the top. I enjoyed tail gunning with 007 ( our fearless leader and great tour guide) on Alpine loop..Thanks to Terahex for loaning me an antenna after losing mine on our first run of the summit..thanks goes out to Mark with Metal Tech he allowed me to drive the FJ Crawler ( Marlin Crawler unit) and also he allowed my Wife to drive as well..To my brother who bought me a side M-Pac
rack for my B-day..and of couase the Trail Teams once again did a awesome job of showing us a great time

Life doesn't pass you by Porsches do !!

Re: Thank You

I would also like to add a Thank You to all the volunteers/organizers. Your hardwork was noticed. This was our first summit to attend but definetly not the last. We had so much fun visiting beautiful Colorado, making new friends and doing the trails... can't wait for next year!!! Thanks again!
