Forum Get-Together?

Hey folks!

Just wanted to get some brainstorming going and see if there was anyone who would be interested in having like a little forum meet and greet or something at this year's FJ Summit? I know some folks participate in the Pre-Summit Moab trip organized here on the forums which is awesome. But for those who will be at the actual Summit, I wanted to gauge interest in the possibility of there being a specific night of the Summit where forum members could meet up for maybe just an hour or so.

This thread is completely open to suggestions, but I think it would be a neat little thing to do. Or maybe like a night trail run or something up Yankee Boy for forum members if we wanted to get a little more involved? I don't know. Thoughts?

Again, I'm just getting this ball rolling and we'll see where it goes.

That would be awesome, especially squeezing in another trail day. I wanna see my FJ in one of your epic drone vids.

Then Facebook happened.

I like that idea of having it at Summit HQ one of the evenings at a certain time! Especially if we had at least a couple of our rigs parked next to each other at Twin Peaks with maybe a little sign with FJCruiserForum.com on it!

It would be cool if for those members who showed up we had like little FJCruiserForums stickers or something you know?

That sounds really good! Iím staying at Twin Peaks so will be parked there anyhow, but would be cool if forum members meeting each other could also meet their FJs. No idea where thereís a place in walking distance from TP for everyone to park...maybe in the field across 3rd Ave from the tent? Would also be great if there could be an announcement made at Summit about the meetup We need to figure out a good time and day for it, squeeze it in between Trail Leaders meetings, night runs, dinner etc.

Re: Forum Get-Together?

Funny but during our first FJ Summit (Summit #7 in 2013) I assumed most if not all attendee's where forum members. I was surprised to find out that was not the case and found even less at TOTH the year before.

Yeah, I think that would be cool to get together if even only for an hour or two. We are staying at the Victorian Inn again so we are walking distance to the tent area but open for other ideas too.

Re: Forum Get-Together?

This forum is bad for my wealth...
I just asked for quotes to ship my FJ to the US on a temporary import basis...
It's about $1000 to get it NY - Dubai - I assume it's going to be similar to ship it Dubai - NY, then and epic road trip...

:-)
Maybe not this year but possibly a plan for next year to combine it with a family holiday.
My justification is that we wouldn't have to rent a car or pay for internal flights in the US if I shipped the FJ...
I'd also love to take a drive up through Canada to Alaska.
I can see this getting quickly out of control...
