Straplock, Site Work, Latex, Barney, Quaker (QIC)

The Thang:

Conditions: 78 degrees, slightly humid

The Republic Q sheet was calling my name. I noticed late Friday that Monday’s Q was blank; I checked back periodically to see who would take it. Every time I checked the vacancy a little voice whispered to me,”Do it . . .Do it” (#Starsky&Hutch). The voice kept getting louder & louder until I hammer the keys on the Q-sheet Request Sunday morning. “LET’S DO IT!!(#Bluto/AnimalHouse). I was pumped, this would be my 3rd visit to the Water Tower & my 2nd Q there in a week. There is something exciting about this AO: The Bridge, the Water Tower and especially the PAX. As I arrived, Straplock and Site Work were congregating nearing the Tower ready to go. We administered proper greeting and formed a 3 man COP (#triangle).
