I think that's what I forget too often on this site. Summit is about meeting people...it's more of a social aspect for many than a wheeling destination.
When I go on vacation, I go to wheel. Not being able to hit trails like Blackbear, Imogene, or Poughkeepsie keep me from wanting to go at all. I've done them all many times, but it's always fun to see if you can actually make some of the 3 point turns on Blackbear in one shot without going off the cliff (at the expense of terrifying my wife
) or hitting the big wall on Poughkeepsie when everyone else is slamming into that tree....or just watching people get stuck on the winch hill or in the mud bogs in the middle of Poughkeepsie. Then there's the scenery of all 3.
Different strokes for different folks I suppose.
I'll really commit blasphemy and say you should change the name from Summit....and move the whole event to somewhere much more suitable and more fun to play in.....MOAB!!!!
Though that suggestion would really
screw with the kiddies school schedules :lol: since the best time of year to be there to run trails is late Sept-late Nov or late April to early June.
