I did not listen to the AO-51 pass you mention, but I would guess it was 
very crowded as is common. I will not comment on a guess but I will say that 
early morning passes are generally less crowded and "laid back". If you are 
up for the VERY early morning passes of SO-50...come join me, I'm often by
