The BackBlast:


YHC arrived early and was pleased to see the PAX keep on tricklin’ in. In all 11 PAX showed up in the gloom which may very well be a Swanson record.

YHC welcomed the PAX, proclaimed the mission, and warned all that YHC is indeed not a professional.

Naked Man Moleskin:

* Obviously named for Googan who *always* rolls in hot

** YHC neglected to mention the 200m lunge walk until the 5 sets had been completed

*** That grass was very soupy and cold

**** We crossed a bridge, sooooo…..

***** Never fun

****** YHC said if anyone screwed up the count, we’d get knocked back 20. Of course, we screwed up at 51 (and not on purpose believe it or not)

******* Had to go past 20
