Pretty cool. Your sidetrip after the Gathering definitely put you & Chris over the top in terms of bloggers met!

I wonder if this will become like birdwatchers's lifetime lists. I'll try not to be too puffed up about it.

I feel bad that the furthest I've gone is out to Pasadena for beers with Wess. My wife and I are going to have to make some pilgrimage now to... Ohio? I'm sure Wess has some people we can stay with.

The problem, Chris, is that I'm not sure you would find as many Quaker bloggers in the whole state of Ohio as in the town of Newberg, Oregon.

Newberg and Minneapolis/St. Paul in Minnesota are definitely the most happening places in the Quaker blogosphere.

I'm looking forward to adding you to my list, so to speak, next month.

I wonder if it is just a coincidence that the FGC Gathering this year was in Tacoma, Washington and next year in River Falls, Wisconsin - VERY CLOSE to the epicenters of Quaker blogging...

The Lord works in mysterious ways.

Robin, you make this comment:

So does this mean that the 2007 Gathering in River Falls, Wisconsin--just an hour outside of the Twin Cities--can lure you and your family to attend next summer?! Big smile.

Blessings,
Liz, The Good Raised Up

I almost forgot to add
Jason Schwanz and Steve Watson who we also met in Newberg.

It is interesting to note the geographic distribution of folks. I was surprised that when I looked around the room at the events I felt most excited by at the FGC Gathering there was no one or only one or two people from Philadelphia YM (by far FGC's biggest yearly meeting) and off the top of my head I can only think of one other active PYM/Original blogger (Kirk Wattles).

Also FUM Friends seem much less active than their comparative numbers should indicate. I don't think this is just a result of who I notice, though that might contribute to my perception.

And it has been pointed out by others that there aren't as many Quaker bloggers from outside North America as might be expected, given the relative number of Quakers around the world.
