Prayer Concerns
Bert’s wife and Bartman’s mother both had surgery on Thursday and each went well
Herbie asked for general prayer for positive 2017 as new year approaches

YHC took us out

Braveheart and I scouted the AO yesterday as I knew I wanted to travel outside the park. Found a good place for warm up and a rock pile (both new?), as well as BTTW location, but we didn’t have enough time.
Prepped the PAX for potential mileage as I thought we would pyramid down on the burpee, squat, squat thrust etc routine, but there wasn’t going to be enough time. Only 1.4 and Smokey said he was disappointed we didn’t get 2.0
Great to have Hefty from Denver visiting us. Burt and Hermes both knew that there was a Denver in NC.
CK is tough. Came in shorts, no hat and short sleeve shirt.
Denali is very concerned that DZ site Qs apparently think it is optional to post. Luckily we had 2 former DZ leaders to maintain order
Is Ma Bell the NanTan or the ManTan of CARPEx? Unofficial vote today was clearly in favor of the latter
Pretty sure that Bartman’s clown car from SNS area at 530 tomorrow morning will not qualify for the HOV lane in any municipality
Thanks to all PAX for the support today. Managed to keep mumble chatter to a relative minimum until Mary. Mission accomplished
