...and she's back!

OK, folks. Drama sorted out. Neopex went pretty darn well. I know I had a fabulous time, and Im pretty sure almost everyone who attended did too. Neopex did seriously take over my life for a minute there. Planning an event is hard, even one as relatively small as the one we held. Im still in the process of cleaning out the random stuff that doesnt belong to me thats filling up my car. (Damn you NEUEA People! I could camp forever with your stuff!)

What I did learn, however, is that it's easier to get people together than you might think. With the exception of the amount of time it took to plan, nothing was really that hard to do. Talking with Slim Jim during the weekend made me realize that many explorers really do love to get together. There's a real sense of community behind UE that I've never quite felt in any other hobby. I hope that other people around the country start planning small meets. It's a really good feeling to hang out with like individuals.

I think part of this is because, as has been pointed out many many times before, UE can really turn into a sort of lifestyle. As explorers, we're always looking for the next adventure. I've learned that most people not into UE think it's a rather curious thing for me to go looking for the entrance to the roof of my work when i'm on break, and that sort of thing. The best thing about meets is being able to say "Yeah, and then 'Snows said 'Run into the woods after you drop out the window, but he didnt tell me there was a ditch!'" and having it be COMPLETELY normal.

So anyway, Neopex was great, and I'll try and post some of the mosre specific adventures soon. Tonight's wise advice, though, is get out there and meet people in the community. Just for fun. Organize something. It's more possible than you may realize.

...Looking forward to the great race...

Drie
