I really would like to personally thank you and your crew for putting on one amazing event. I have wanted to attend this for a couple of years now and for my 50th birthday my wife and I and our 2 dogs drove 1,600 miles round trip to attend your event. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves adventure travel. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the variety of vendors was outstanding. I will attend again. This was a BUCKET LISTER.”
