Well, here it is, my take in the epic event known as the Great Kanab Meet-Up of 2011. I reckon an epic event calls for an epic TR, so I have cobbled together the following set of posts on my perspective of the meet-up. I’ve been working on photos and trip notes since we returned from Kanab and it has obviously taken me some time to get my thoughts in order. There are already several excellent TRs and additional comments on the Great Kanab Meet-Up and I just hpe this one lives up to what has already been posted. I have enjoyed reading all of the TRs along with the follow-on comments.
I’ve written this TR over the course of several days, so I’m sure that the flavor of each entry will vary from post-to-post, but that’s OK, I reckon. So, I’ll provide the rundown for each day as subsequent posts to this thread and will include a link to photos with each post. MsHick and I snapped over 1400 photos during this wonderful excursion, so it did take a while to whittle it down to the best and most meaningful.
Before I get into the details, let me just say that it was an honor and a privilege to get to spend time with such a great and diverse group of folks. I truly enjoyed all the planning that went into this event. Putting together the meet-up website was a great education for me and seemed to provide us with a very useful planning tool. And while we went on some great day trips during this meet-up, the best part was getting to meet so many wonderful folks, each of who have a true love for travel and the outdoors, the common bonds that drew us together in Kanab.
