Tower of Power

Conditions: COLD. 36 degrees, but no wind so that was nice. The Thang: YHC showed up a little early to set up and verify the Tower of Power course. Most PAX came screaming in right before the one-minute call so YHC felt a little better that it wasn’t going to be YHC, Fergie, and Hoser. …

BackBlast Moving Day @ Warthog

Moving Day @ Warthog

The Thang: YHC agreed to take this Q about a month ago when Fergie asked for volunteers to fill the Warthog December Q Sheet. I’ve posted at Warthog a handful of times, and have been looking forward to leading here. It’s a great AO, minus the awful parking lot we start and finish at. This …

Another day at #Warthog and another Saturday Q!!!  Fergie is like a man possessed when filling his Q sheet, so I quickly obliged.  Had a bunch of floating #weinkes in my head based on what the weather would be, who would show, etc.   Great …
