Re: what was the summit about for you this year?

As I sit here this morning at work (browsing the forum, when I should be catching up on a week's worth of e-mails), I think what the most I got out of the summit was the chance to meet folks that I corresponded with via this forum, over the course of the last six months or so. That, and the enjoyment of wheeling with some of them in the most scenic venue imaginable!

I really enjoyed meeting a lot of folks at the chili cookoff, and that was the primary reason for participating; nothing beats handing over some samples and chatting/meeting with fellow forum members over chili and beer! And, the trails - what can I say? The single word that comes to mind is 'awesome'!

I've got a week and a half to rest up, then I'm off to Sturgis, South Dakota for the bike week rally. This year, coming back home, I'm going to detour over through Ouray and ride Hwy 550 again, only this time on the Harley!

Thanks again, Jason and all of the volunteers, for a very memorable time.

Re: what was the summit about for you this year?

For us, like many others, it was about meeting people. We got to meet so many great people both in town & on the trails.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words about FJC Magazine, we really appreciate it!

I'm working on my trip blog right now, instead of working on my e-mail inbox. I'm already ready for next year!!

It was meeting new friends that you feel like you've known forever. I don't know any other way to describe it.
