We heard that one of my younger cousins passed away this week. Rodney had been plagued with health issues for many years. He is the first of my generation, Pop Pickard's 33 grandchildren, to make it to maturity and pass on. The oldest is 80 and the youngest are late 40's. I am fifth oldest.
We moved up to Bill's, south of Campbell River, today. Tomorrow my brother in law John R and I are joining a large group of ATV riders on a super long ride. Tomorrow we ride from Campbell River to Gold River which is 170-200 kms. On Sunday,we ride from Gold River to Tahsis and back then return to Campbell River on Monday. I don't know how long the Tahsis ride will be. It should be an interesting experience.

A tricky geocache hide. If you look closely, you can see the wire under the branch stub that you use to pullout the tiny container after removing the branch. Of course, you have to replace it as found.
