Meet & Greet Groundspeak & Garmin in Seattle

Alright, I waited so long to post this (it sat as a draft for a long time), that I've forgotten all the witty stuff I was going to write about this event. Ah, well, the story of my life right now. *rolls eyes*

I guess I shall content myself with just posting the pictures and a comment on most of them.

The Meet & Greet Groundspeak & Garmin in Seattle Event was great! We met with Groundspeak and Garmin at the REI Flagship Store in Seattle, WA. Lots of people came, and we got cookies! :-) We mingled, exchanged trackables, heard a few important people talk, won some stuff, and tried out the Wherigo on the neat REI grounds.

We had this frog carving in the door pointed out to us, and were told we had to take a picture of Signal with it:
