Hey everyone! I know it’s been quiet here on the OBN for awhile and I’ll offer up these two (totally legit) words.
I cannot resist the allure of Summer. It’s what I spend the rest of my year working my behind off so I can enjoy it to the max.
Sunday I returned home from a week up in Yellowstone National Park hanging out with some pretty amazing people. I had the honor and privilege of meeting several bloggers who were part of the Trout Unlimited, Simms, the Yellowstone Park Foundation and the Outdoor Blogger Network Blogger Tour 2012.
Meeting new people is always exciting, but also a nervous occasion for me. It’s one thing to feel a connection with someone by reading their Outdoor blog, it’s another thing to take that familiarity and connect it face to face.
On the Blogger Tour, I think it took all of 30 minutes with the whole group to know I was with ‘my people’ and the entire week was going to be amazing. Which it was indeed…
Connecting with, hanging out with, laughing with and experiencing the Outdoors with so many other Bloggers really inspired me to get the show on the road with an official OBN gathering next year. I even got commitments of help from a few people who know their way around coordinating such a large event.
If an OBN gathering of Outdoor Bloggers is half as fun as the week I just experienced with a few bloggers, I’d say we are all in for a huge treat.
Rebecca (p.s. I have 273 OBN emails to catch up on, so if you’re in that line up…I’m getting there!)
