    Yes we did!! The Atwood merch is cool, just way too pricey.....lol. I sold that a while back to fund a bag.
    I still wear both my Summit, and Alpha, and love them both!

    Not that I feel like you guys should do anything for my convenience, but it sure would be helpful if the actual M&G was on Sunday. Just saying.:)

    I think the biggest issue with Sunday is travel time home.
    I arrived Saturday at 11:30am, and left for home at 10:30pm........what a great time!!!

    We are planning an October meet up, tentative for the weekend of the 5th. Would love to meet you, and hang out. Feel free to bring your family, girl, etc. The ladies had a great time as well!

    Pretty cool that y'all got together. Did you just bring your regular EDC or a bunch of extras as well? Also, did anyone take a group/table shot of everyone's carry?

    Part of me would love to do something like this but then the shy, introverted part of me hyperventilates.

    We brought our regular EDC and a few extras to trade. There was no pictures taken of everyone's carry. All we have is the "ZZ-Top picture" as seen above...:D

    Speaking for myself only...I came not knowing what to expect. I had never been to a Meet & Greet before and I had never met with any of my fellow EDCF members...period. I also didn't know what to expect in terms of the location. When I came...I was really stressed out by daily life and my job etc. There was even some drama here at EDCF right before the Meet & Greet and I was considering not attending.

    When we (my GF and I) got there...we were met with open arms. Throughout the day...I saw nothing but smiles, kindness, tolerance and patience. It was like being with long lost friends and brothers. My two EDCF brothers and their families were nothing but kind & nice. The weather was perfect. The location was perfect. I'm so glad that I (we) went. I can't wait to go back in October and I can't wait to see everybody again and hopefully meet and make some new friends....:)

    We had an amazing day...pure and simple !!!

    Been at the Butler County Farm Show all week with the kids they did 4H meat chickens.
    Last night I was approached by a man.
    He introduced himself as Bullrome.
    He recognized me from my picture here and the red beard.
    Great PA guy, lovely wife.
    Bull said he has been following this thread.
    What a great guy.
    Hope to meet up again.

    I looked out the corner of my eye and saw a familiar face...never met before but remember billybag from his photos on EDCF. It was great to meet him and his beautiful family! They are great! I had my wife snap a photo for the forum.

    Sorry I couldn't make it fellas. When I got laid off earlier this year, the whole rest of my year got turned upside down. I got a new job and the lack of vacation days to go along with it. Anyway, looks like you guys had a good time. If you do something next year, I'll have the days to burn and will join you.

    If not you should go it is a good time.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
