Unicon and me

All I can say is that I had a fantastic time. Thanks to all the
organisers.

The best aspect for me was meeting many of the people who
post in this group and elsewhere - hope that experience was
mutual, folks ;-). Americans are not nearly as weird as I had
suspected, except that they don’t appear very fond of Marmite…

I’ll post more details of my stay on my website soon, and
interested people can look there.

Here’s looking forward to Unicon XII.

They don’t like marmite? Makes them perfectly normal as far as I’m concerned. However if you’re saying you like marmite… well… ewwwwwww… :slight_smile:

Nothing very interesting there yet.

I did manage to swap my Marmite for a T-shirt,
with a little help from Rocket. Not an American
though…

Nice site. When are you going to put up your pet hates then? I love reading about what niggles other people. It makes me glad to realise that I’m not the only one who gets hacked off with things that many people just don’t get bothered by, e.g. hmm, err… I can’t think of an example. I must be in a very tolerant mood today:)

Have fun!

Arnie,

I guess we didn’t try hard enough. We’ll try to do a more convincing job next time.

Great to meet you at UNICON. Looking forward to next time as well.

Yeah, I had a lot of fun with you guys up on the mountain on Sunday. I rode with you and Adam on the last run. I love hanging out with British people. You use all these words that I know, but you use them in completely different context than what I’m used to. I loved it when Adam said the trail was brilliant.

It was encouraging to discover that the English have a fondness for ice cream. It was a joy to meet you and ride with you, Alan.

Thanks, Greg. Chatting with you was a pleasant way to finish the ride
on Bainbridge Island: none of that insane racing about the Chinese
kids were doing :-).

BTW, when you send a Coker 1.5 around for testing, please ask for
my address.

I think I preferred the cool, damp weather on Sunday to the sunshine we
had on Friday. A pity we were so late getting to the site.

Yep. You guys don’t speak properly, and you can’t spell for toffee ;-).
