5 PAX arrived at 5 am for an Uzi led Ruck, took off, went back and got Champ who arrived at 5:05, continued to do Ruck things. When YHC returned he was overcome with a renewed Christmas spirit as 7 more PAX waited patiently in the lot to make it 13, a site record for […]

6 PAX gathering on a frosty post-Christmas morning to jump back into the routine after the holiday hiatus. YHC was thrilled to see 5 friendly faces as lack of slack activity the night before had visions of a solo post dancing in his head. Not sure how hard YHC would have been able to push […]

Traveling for the Holidays
