One thought on “2016 Scavenger Hunt Wrap-Up

  1. Joel: That is Awesome! You have, I believe, pulled. into overall winner position. I was quite sure that Kate was going to claim those honors, but you added on about half the silver card. Unless someone else surprises me, I’m sure I’ll be contacting you about the grand prize.

    Thanks so much for playing along with me. Can’t wait to see how you do in 2017.
