All Around the Watchtower

All Around the Watchtower

13 PAX took a leap of faith and made it out to Watchtower, not knowing who would actually be the Q.  I had made a deal with Posse yesterday to Q if he promised me no rain.  He pulled out his phone, apparently pretended to look at an app, and assured me no rain.  So of course there was rain.  However it did stop before start time but it was wet enough to where I scraped all plans to use any rocks or pass over any grass.  The PAX were appreciative. I even think I got a standing ovation when they learned I was the Q.   I think.   At least they were standing.  That’s how I remembered it anyway.

Mosey on back to cars right on time.


We tracked almost 2 miles today, not a ton but we were constantly moving with a very fast Mosey throughout. It’s always good to make it to the old Watchtower site for some new terrain.  I was tempted at some point with the track being open but I ran out of time so we’ll save that for another day.  The goal was to keep any rest to a minimum and I think that was achieved.  Once again, a great group of guys today and some real solid work was put in.   Thanks to all who came out.
