Humid. That is the word of the day. Another word: Breezeless. Add in soupy, swampy, steamy and you may start to get a feel for the level of gloom that these 17 glorious warrior PAX endured at the Big Dance. We were definitely dancing today, in sweat and tears.

Today was the fourth or fifth day in a row with temps over 80 and high humidity at 0530. Its unbelieveable what that’ll do to a man. So what better way to celebrate the thick rich air than getting the heart rate elevated for 45 glorious minutes. After several pax took a stroll around Jordan […]
