Time to post up how you feel about the summit.

Had a great time. I'd like to go back, and hit the trails with some smaller groups. We came across Ollie/Kal/Frogeye on Friday, and rolling back from Teluride with them was great.

I think I'd also take a much smaller 'support group' with me, maybe just my wife and I instead of the in-laws and kids.

I think it was freaking amazing!! I love the place and how damn cool the Ouranians are. I do think it would be cool to have it at different places but then again why not just have it there and have different events at other places. we already have a good rapport and reputation with the town big wigs and lets face it, they can use our money. they are like Tellurides white trash neighbor. lol

Looking at the pictures, listening to stories and feeling the overall sense of brotherhood, I would really like to attend next year. For me, it will take a lot of planning and scrimping/saving, but I think the goal is attainable. Another concern is time off from work. If work goes the way it looks like it is, my seniority is uncertain. So I'm not sure I can get that specific time off. But, fingers are crossed and I'm thinking positively.

I will attend for the shear beauty of the area. The trails are less than challenging, but the spectacular views make it a must.

I included the Moab Mayhem after the Summit. The trails were challenging and fun, I will do the same next year, but with a little more time in Moab I think. I got to the summit the Saturday before and spent a lot of time on all the trails. Next year, I will do more of the Moab trails if not before.

The summit is an experience, great people, both Summiteers and the people of Ouray. I would never want to see it moved. Jason has done a tremendous job of setting this all up. I think it will be there until there is no interest in it.

true dat..... no dust in CO..... Ouray trails at least.
No dust? ;D We were tailgunning Alpine Loop into Lake City. OMG it was a giant dust bowl, everyone was asking if we were OK back there. I said we were fine, "it's just like home, vents closed and A/C on!"

We had a great time, I'm ready to go back! I can't believe how many people I didn't run into or get to meet.

Thanks for the kind words about the backpacks Dave! :)

That area was the only one with dust potential. I think I got lucky, and there had been enough rain when I went through.

Did you see the signs about the water trucks that come through, and how they don't stop, so you need to roll up the windows? Funny. I think we need water trucks on the trails here too. ;D

Had a blast but I don't think I will be going next year. I have limited vacation and I would like to do/try some other things.

VERY nice area and event, but not worth the miles to do every year. Glad we made a week of it: Hit Durango pre-Summit: Mesa Verde National Park, Durango-Silverton Train, hiking. Went through Moab on the way back, but no time for wheeling. Would love to do one more Summit and include time in Moab.

We might go but won't be registering...I registered for this years as soon as registeration opened, ended up not being able to go but didn't get a dime of my $150 back????? For a non-profit, someone profited $150 bucks! They could have a least sent the stuff that everyone got at registeration to us.

My sons name was called during the kids raffle, someone from our Vegas club went up to claim it and told them we weren't able to make it. He was told the backpack would be mailed to us, when I inquired on the Blue Room if the backpack had been sent, I was told we had to be present to win.

We have family in Montrose, CO so we will just plan a visit to see them during next years summit so we can caravan out with friends but aren't financially commited to the Summit.

I'm leaning this way too. I've done the summit two years in a row now. I enjoyed it both times but it is very expensive (gas, food, lodging) and I've been on all of those trails now. I love it there, but I'd love to see more of the west coast sierras etc.

I loved doing the Kokopelli Trail, and Top of the World in Moab. I'm all for a west coast/east coast summit.

Even a Moab Summit would be cool. So most likely, I won't be there next year. I'll plan an expedition closer to home. Lone Pine/whitney portal is calling me back. I'm going to do Mt. whitney again and camp in the sierras most likely.
