  • AO -

After many anonymous calls, mysterious texts, late night knocks on my door and a little encouragement from Soccer Mom, I was honored to be the Leader of the PAX…vroom…vroom. It wasn’t the prettiest Q, but as a self-proclaimed introvert and great follower, I endured the sarcasm and mumble chatter and proudly took the challenge. Don’t be fooled by the fact it was a VQ as it packed a punch rivaling a shot of cheap, hot whisky from a broken mason jar. Mumble Chatter was a minimum…not sure if that was good or bad…but Q Probation was the goal.
That being said, 12 PAX heeded warning and joined YHC at #TOT for a RoadTrip back in time for a modified version of the BLIMPS, AKA The Hindenburg BLIMPS. If you are familiar with theHindenburg Blimp, you know it didn’t end very well. If you are not familiar…well, it didn’t end very well. But there was good news for the non-runners…we’re staying in the parking lot. The bad news…the parking lot is long.

CONDITIONS: Dark, star canopy, cool 57 degrees…keep your eyes peeled for Bambi Camo

MISSION: – Nailed it

DISCLAIMER: – Nailed it

I’ve never prayed aloud, only in my head. Hopefully that will change in time. With that I closed by asking the PAX to pray with me in unison with the Lord’s Prayer.
