YHC had not had an opportunity to post or Q on the Western end of the empire, so today was a real treat for me and something I’ve looked forward to for some time. A few brave middle easterners (Steamer and Frosted Flake) decided to make the journey to the west with YHC this morning to help warm the PAX up a bit on a cool morning.

We gathered together around the well stitched shovel flag as the PAX slowly rolled in. I know that it would be a difficult morning to keep the entire PAX together as I realized I would have to wrangle two Lawrence’s (Steamer and Cooter)…none the less I had to try!

Disclaimer delivered, Mission Statement crushed with perfection.

We moseyed around the baseball field as YHC tried to get his bearings of the place and circled back to the Shovel Flag for Warmarama.

Cold, dog tired, and dirty as a well digger we made our way on a mosey back to the Shovel Flag for Name-O-Rama and BOM, YHC took the PAX out in prayer.

I consider it a real honor to lead such an enthusiastic group, it is apparent to me why you guys have had such success getting the western end thriving!
