I have spotted before, and have met Josh on one occasion several years ago. I am about to acquire my first DSLR, but I would honestly love to start, and grow the community here. I love going out there, but it becomes boring when it is just you and a whole bunch of families around. Plus there are a lot of wonderful places that would require more of a two man operation to achieve unique photos.
If you would like to meet up soon then just tell us when and where to show up!
