The Thang:

YHC apologizes for the tardiness of this BB. Easter weekend plus the time off with family this week has caused a break in the rhythm.Alas…

YHC was honored to be asked to come up to Warthog and lead the Holy Saturday Q and subsequent 3rdF word.

I made the commute from UCLA to the Airbase just in time to unload the Felt for a 0600 preride. I was happy to join up with Bluegrass, Weedeater and Billboard for a lesiureride around the grounds. It was a nice change of scenery from the usual Saturday PaperRoute.

Just prior to the 0700 bootcamp we parked our steeds and met up with the gathering Pax. At the one minute warning we made note that Cheesy was heating up the Elvis so at the strike of 0700 we trotted off to help him evacuate the dookcube. I am sure he was as happy to see us as we were to see him.

YHC started us off in the COT out on the soccer field near the collectiob of shovelflags, but the city workers must have been watching near by and decided to scare us off with their well timed and well-aimed water sprinklers. So we kept scooting down the field unphased by the action.

At this point we were being joined by some of the 8 Pax who had Rucked the morning away and some of the Bombsquad Pax.


and hit the Pause button for a transition to an intentioanl 3rdF and BOM under the picnic Shelter.

At the COT YHC spoke of the Psalm 119 text wherein it asks the rhetorical question,

9 How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
    By living according to your word.
10 I seek you with all my heart;
    do not let me stray from your commands.
11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    that I might not sin against you.

YHC shared with the Pax that the 3 primary ways we stray off course is due to the 3 A’s of Ambition, Approval and Appetite.

We discussed the reality and potential hazards of ambition, approval and appetite as we see our self falling prey to a primary drift as well as succumbing to all three. The truth is we all have a favorite ditch that we keep kareening into.

We shared our burdens, prayer requests and ended with a BOM.



As always YHC is honored to serve at any level and at any time. It has been a minute since my schedule has permitted a Warthog visitation. It was great to see all the familar faces and funny names. F3 means so much to all of us, and by that we mean that we all mean a lot to each other. Keep forming the bonds and sharpening each other men, that is what the world desparately needs. You are your brother’s keeper. I thank you all for allowing me to serve in this capacity. Godbless.
