When YHC put the word on Slack about this morning’s Basecamp, the first response was from our beloved Site Q, Rambler.  Even though he’s on the DL/IR –with strict no-rucking instructions— he planned to joined the crew….on a bike!  Now that’s what I called a dedicated site Q.  Well done, Rambler and great to fellowship […]
