well we made it back from the expo last night. my first one, and i was impressed. thursday they had field day, to test different brands, and new equipment. they had new equipment there as well, some i was impressed by, others i felt that if you were lazy enough to use it you should get a desk job. the convention hall was impressive as well with all the water falls, fountains and plants. anything that you were interested in was there. for those that missed it, wish you could have been there, for those that were there, what did you think? since this was my first one, i don't know if they get better than this or if they are all about the same.
