Moleskine and announcements:

  • Great showing post-Halloween by a solid group of men despite the high-mileage twitter warning
  • Had a few more Halloween tricks up the sleeve for COP, but could tell the PAX may need a bit extra time, so saving those for another day.  We needed the time anyway to ensure everyone got their fill on the Se7ens
  • Hopefully the neighbor in Reid Hall appreciated the display of 15 middle-aged men performing monkey humpers together on her street at 5:45 am.  Nothing odd about that?   Hopefully we won’t get banned.  Maybe merkins would have been a better choice.  #crowdpleaser
  • Welcome FNG Exit Row.   Long story regarding Orange Whip and Mile High HCing him on an airplane together.  Trust me, you don’t want the details.
  • Great take-out from Orange Whip
  • Appreciate the opportunity to lead #F3Kevlar
  • Announcement:  Vagabond next Saturday 11/10, 6:30am, 13mi, 6 AOs, refreshements at end.  Start/finish Hickory Tavern, Providence Rd. See preblast for details and shirt orders
