Did you end up with sushi or oysters as the last meal?

Cheers to @nomadic.relief for organizing a completely fun and pleasing event!

Cheers, too, to @NewbieRunner for ultra reliable photo journalism.

I have a bunch of photos from the walks on my camera - will post some if any add to the story.

^ seconded and thirded

it was really great to catch up with previous acquaintances (both real and virtual) and to meet many more FTers!

I am really glad everyone had a good time despite the uncooperative nature of the weather! I was trying to post a picture from home today, I cannot get it to size properly ... but the cloudless nature of it is likely in poor taste anyhow. ;)

Until next time, safe travels and good mileage redemptions(/earnings)!

Let me help you out with that at the risk of also being in poor taste. This was taken from home mere seconds ago. Why couldn’t the weekend have been like this?

But despite the rain, it was so great catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. Many thanks to nomadic.relief for the great time and I am already looking forward to the 2nd Annual next year.

Hmm, I seem to recall hearing you agree to it at dinner on Saturday. And I believe I have witnesses! :p

There were a lot of very positive comments about our tour guide from the group. He gave @nomadic.relief a card at the end - I just emailed to ask him if he minded me posting his card to the group for future reference and referals
