res2100: Thank you everyone for attending the event. It was such an awesome day in more ways than one. It was really neat to see all the different ways that people took to get to the picnic on top of Ishpatina Ridge and great to be able to share the weekend with a great bunch of friends, including my many new friends. The stories, comments and logs for the event were awesome and a pleasure to listen to and read. This event turned into my favourite cache experience ever and this was also a chance in a lifetime for me to take part in this adventure. Memories from this weekend will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Thanks everyone again and I look forward to reading the rest of the logs once everyone gets around to posting them.

If we ever do a picnic like this again, Maple Mountain might be a good choice to consider for next year...we'll see. I'ld do it by canoe if we went up there. I am open to suggestions.
