The winner was Andrew Burr, whom I’m a huge fan of, omigosh. Here, I even got my picture taken with him:

I stumbled into the campsite to see my sodden crew hiding from the drips that were soaking the forest floor. Nevertheless, we had a laughter-filled reunion. Here are some of the girls pulling down:
