Meeting other FWB members

Postby mdeth1313 » Sun Oct 21, 2012 10:03 pm

This summer while on my 10th anniversary trip, I met Pritchet for the first time in SF. That was fun!

Yesterday(Saturday 10/20), I was reading my emails and Juanmoretime tells me he's leaving for NYC for a wedding. As it turns out, my wife and I were in Manhattan for her Optometry Conference and class reunion. Next thing you know, I got meet JMT (after 5 or 6 years of being WW and FWB friends and hang out for a bit. Just shows, you never know who or where you're going to end up seeing someone!

Meeting forum members is pretty cool. This last year I met mdeth1313 and Ypsylon for the first time. I was able to eat Chipotle with both gentlemen too!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Chipotle doesn't sound overly appealing to me? :?

A few years ago i met Dark Albert off the ww forum and also the Nils at Eurobike. That was really good. I was given an introduction to Axel from AX Lightness at the same time and a couple of other manufacturers that I didn't know, plus on the way back to the hotel, a random person I started talking to turned out to be another ww member! Many, many years ago we also had a visit from a Rue, must be ten years ago now, I'd think. Other than that, erm, a ww member over in New Zealand when I went there on holiday and I think that might be it. What I have found is that forum members rarely seem to look like what you imagine they will look like, but without exception (so far) they have all been good people.

In the past year I was lucky enough to meet Ypsilon and Pritch.

Definitely was an excellent time. To recapture the moment and because its way too much to type here were my thoughts:

Yep, meeting Pritch and his family, über-goober, movr, and, last but not least, madcow was definetly awesome.

Lots of great riding, too.

It's incredible to see pro riders just walk in the door and how they range from, "uhm, it's a hardtail with those large wheels" to, "dang, Jason, this is 3.7g heavier than last year's, what do we do?"
