  • Good to see 3 GoRuck pax join in for warm-ups.  YHC couldn’t recognize them with all their gear on and headlamps shining in my face (Lickasickle, The Hoff, Dora?, ?)
  • Mr. Green brought FNG, Thurston Cook from Atlanta this gloom.  It was a consensus to go with the Gilligan’s Island theme.  Welcome F3 Minnow!

Great way to start Christmastime!

10′ inseam? Overkill…in that chilly rainy weather 2-3′ would suffice.

Thanks for letting the SPEARHEAD crew crash the #DMZ Welcome Party! PAX were The Hoff, Dora, Liquor-Cycle AND Wolfman (silent warrior). Five minutes of fun.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
