The Thang:

YHC arrived early for his guest Q as he wanted to get the lay of the land. After a slow drive around the AO, I parked where cars were starting to gather. At 530 sharp, we were off for a mozy to the adjacent building at the back of the lot. 11 circled up

On a good note, one of the PAX noted that growths found in his dog look benign and all should be good.


My home base is Cary/Apex and we have a 2017 challenge that includes Q’ing at each of our AO’s as well as in another region. I had my sights set on Grand Strand as I knew I would be down here for a conference in August. It was great to have the timing work out

Big surprise to see Hermes from Carpex as the first PAX I see. Had posted with him in Charlotte last Friday and told him I was q for Bomb Squad, where I knew he periodically posted. He failed to mention he would be down here. Probably wanted to keep his fartsack option open.

Grand Strand guest Q program is special. I knew about it from my initial research into signing up with One Call, but failed to study and my effort was pretty mediocre for all 3 questions. I feel like I could nail it now, but buckled under mental pressure as well as physical fatigue. I was completely not prepared for the burpees however. What a great way to honor a fallen member.

I apologize for the missing names as well as any I got wrong and it was definitely an honor and privilege to lead a fine group of men.
