Agreed with the lot of you. I too hoped to make it to all of our locally referenced folks' rooms, but some were too crowded when I got there, and I with my thoughts wandered and maybe made it back. SO much to do, so little time, so few brain cells...
When I did get in a room with A/C sponsored forums, and we made some connection of who the heck *I* was, it was another level of association that cut through ice of us being strangers, like cousins that had never been to the same reunions. That willingness that earmarks the manufacturers/dealers/etc. that are on here put them all a big step forward in who I'll do business with, rather than the ones like held the Vandersteen room that treated me like an old hippy low-life-tire-kicker. Even though I still own Vandies!
Don't get me wrong, there were some great folks out there NOT associated with A/C (though I might have mentioned their checking in here to a few that weren't familiar).
As I will say probably many times before finally done posting, it was absolutely super meeting all you guys ( I actually remember what each looks like still!!) and have the chance to shoot the bull and flesh out that though we may all come from different directions, we may not be all that different, after all.
Finally, since it was brought up, my first experience hearing Klaus' picture/speakers and I was severely impressed. As came to me MANY times this weekend, I *really* don't need more speakers, BUT!......Klaus was STILL trying to get me into a pair of Lorelleis and he almost had me convinced to chuck all my stuff and to start over, AGAIN!
Well, more in other posting. I've 9 pages to catch up to!
