Thanks everyone! I appreciate the good vibes.

I saved this from last year for a special occasion. I’ll hoist it this weekend in y’all’s honor.

First, congratulation on the new job. :applause:
Wind River is good stuff. I picked up a couple six-packs as I left Wyoming last year, and I plan on picking up some again this trip. :beer: :beer:

What a great event! So many interesting new friendships made. Perfect weather, Cool evenings, cooler mornings and perfect 82ish degree days. The clean blue Wyoming skies are beautiful and the Wind River Mountain Range takes my breath away every time I see it. Thank You, Will, for making such a great gathering possible. Your friendly hospitality is such a gift. Thank you for sharing a part of your State with us.

Rough tough year.missed going camping in pinedale or any were in 2020..sorry we got into cival war here in the teardrop freinds group...but I am glad I stayed home the hole year on the farm..in May i was sick to my stomach of worry over cr8na virus..today God has taken care of me and my mother the first vaccines have came to Riverton and Lander and I have not or my mom had hardly any systems of crona.other than the common head cold......tough desicion but I am glad I stood my ground.it was a bad year over all and worth staying at home for till the vacine came out...maybee next year we can all be freinds again re-make up and go camping in pinedale together....hopefully next years a way better year in 2021...slow...still hanging in there. I did get in 2 very good very crazy membormerail fishing trips by august the crazy wild fire season kept me home bound till into october...

I still think we need more than one gathering set up every summer in Wyoming in the future there was,some shady crap this year in 2020 going on with this gathering and how it was,set up.. it was one of the main reasons I refused to show up besides the crona virus and the finances. so I think.its time for more than one gathering.. the old one gathering fits all ..isn't working out..slow.

Be advised there is more than one reserveble group camp ground in Wyoming and setting up a 2 teardrop gathering is possible as a,alternative to pinedale or any future cival wars....and it's very highly possible to set up quick weekend small gatherings in unreservble camp grounds...the possibilitys are endless to camp here in wyoming.we just as 2020 has shown me need more gatherings and new camp spots than just one gathering a year in pinedale..slow

I'd be up for something in the Bighorn National forest area. A number of years ago I came across a dirt road that took me to the top of the world, not sure we could get teardrops up it but lots to see up through there and probably plenty of safer trailer spots to set base camp.
