Vacationing in Cape Quad

Posted on

Thanks to work and vacation travel, YHC has been out the gloom routine for a couple of weeks.  While away, YHC lived vicariously through the PAX Asheville Spartan updates on Slack.  In particular, the tire flip (an obstacle I never had the privilege to attempt) peaked my interest.  The muddy conditions made it damn near impossible […]

Answering the bell

Plugging back into Slack after a quiet Father’s Day weekend, YHC saw a message from Beano asking for someone to Answer The Bell and Q The Eagle this morning.  YHC stared at it for a minute and thought about giving it some time to see if another PAX would jump on it.  After all, YHC […]
