Hate I missed another classic Swiper beat down this am, -but not too much not to #smartsack after my LSD yesterday – legs needed a break this am. Swiper – glad to see you continue to venture south, and that you made it past the check points with no issues…

Impressive smoke fest this AM. One correction, that’s Cheese Curd, not turd. WOW, that would be a bad name. I often wonder who else hears that?!

I’m with you, Turd…that’s an unfortunate mistake. #turdferguson

Drexler was there for every painful minute and the infrequent 10-counts.

I get a shout out but not included in the PAX? Guess that’s what I get for going Larry Bird on the Q.

Siri really butchered some of the names – good humor (see Gymboree aka Jamboree, Bechard aka Rashard, etc, etc)
Strong Q Swiper. You also failed to list your boss – Gunny – amongst the pax. He was there in strong fashion as my partner on the OJ’s!

Not necessary, but thanks! I am a relatively new to DMZ and I kind of felt like a turd with everyone running past me with their smoke boots on. So I can understand any confusion 🙂

Woke up this morning at 6:30–wondering why my arms were so sore…then it hit me…way too many Burpees.

Solid Q.

& Rampart shouldn’t have chosen to chase a man-o-God…you see what happened when Jacob wrestled One.

Gunny certainly demands respect on multiple levels, age is probably the least of those. However, as for War Daddy I believe at 60 and counting I have him beat by a decade. Just saying.

Great lead Swiper. #LeadFromThe Front.
The chaser was a killer. That will definitely be used again at #DMZ.

I haven’t sprinted like that since throwing snowballs at cars who would then chase ME. No, that wasn’t last winter. It was more than 30 years ago. Hopefully, you and Gunny will overlook my transgression and not report that up the chain of command. #NotASecurityThreat
