But I can't imagine not speaking to many of the fine people I've met via this portal. My 1st GTG was in Princeton, NJ in 2005. I had a 4B in 2004 but wasn't engrained into the P.Com community. While in Princeton there were a few New Yorkers there, they invited me to the NYC gathering where I met N., Ned, Jay, Dan, Eng and many others. It's been downhill ever since, I find myself now crossing the Atlantic to swap beers, stories + camaraderie with many of the brotherhood I've been in contact over the years. Can't imagine how much better my life has been because of all the fine people I've met here.
