    Wow, only 300 spots.

    It was such a great event last year....a lot more people than that would want to come if they knew about it.

    Me and a couple fellow climbers are driving up there tomorrow morning from San Bernardino County.
    Super stoked. This will be the biggest tree related event I have ever been too.

    Wish I would have thought to look up this thread while I was there, I would have liked to meet you guys in person. Saw Chiselbit (Dan), always a pleasure.

    What an incredible over the top event. Sherrill and all of the presenters put in a lot of effort to make the whole thing great. A lot to learn, a lot to experience and be exposed to.

    A guy came from Poland primarily to attend this event. He was going to hit some National Park or something while he was here too but he came for this. I just met him as I was leaving - 2 hours late as the SRT class was jam packed with good info and they stayed late sharing it. I wish I could have talked more with that guy from Poland too.

    My hat is off to Sherrill Tree, all the presenters, and all those who sponsored and contributed in any way. A fantastic event.

    X2. For you guys in neighboring states, it's worth the drive. Maybe next year we'll see more of you. Great time.
