Thanks to everyone for making a Wayward feel comfortable so many times over.

I had that feeling before my first G2G in 2010. That the fact that I was a wayward would cause me to be... left out, I guess. But it was just tge opposite. I learned at that first one that the "title" of WS or BS didn't enter into it. It was fun getting to know the people behind the username and having fun.

And BR, I wish Cee and I could have made it. It would have been nice seeing you and WH5 again.

My BF, who has no SI experience, attended with me, and was surprised to learn of the complete dynamics of the SI group. Baxter and I were able to help him understand the full grasp and how important we all are as a group, with our different initial roles, whether it be WS or BS. In the end, we all have the same goal, and that is what is important.

Truer words never spoken!

It is hard to express.

I feel 'different' after every g2g. So much love, heart and soul put out there by all.

I'm still on a high from Texas.

There is no place that LD and I can feel as comfortable in our everyday life than we do with SI people at a g2g, even the ones we are meeting for the first time.

It really was a different feeling, like meeting old friends. Strong comfort level immediately.

I am glad I was able to make it and meet people who get it.

Thanks.

This is really making me look forward to the MI g2g in October.

I'm at the point where I could use a little IRL support.
