Well that's great news – then I'm the non-cheating winner, hahaha. I could guess the "Adopt" significance, but maybe you should just tell me.

There were two more 451s that weren't in the group photo.

Our family strongly believes in "shelter / rescue animals" (mostly dogs). Any dog we ever had was a shelter or rescue.. At this moment we have two; a standard size long-hair dachshund and a puggle.

For anyone who missed this year's "Last" OTD, there is a rumor that OTD will continue (at least for 2018)?

The actual count was around 35 total... there were many this year that only attended Friday or Saturday or Saturday after the photo was taken. I can think of atleast 3 453's that weren't in this picture.

Probably not... nothing in stone but it appears the begging and pleading may have paid off.

PDXsmart, so happy to hear that! I have been reading and using the forums here for a couple of years now and just recently joined the community. I had no idea events like this even existed. I would love to attend next year if you are still organizing it!

Jennifer and I will not be organizing or attending next year due to our Alaska cruise. Only so much vacation days to go around. We also needed a break after being involved at some level of planning for the last 8 years of the event.

That said, there most likely will be an event next year but nothing has been confirmed.

I would strongly suggest you join the OTD facebook group if possible. That's where all the information is released and discussed. About 95% of the event attendees are not on this forum.

For fellow "Friends of The Dragon," here is a very sobering video from October 15, 2016, Mile Marker 4.

What an ordeal for a very lucky bike rider!
