The Moleskin:

It was a privilege to be out there this morning and good to have the Q as motivation to join after a cold weather hiatus. Enjoyed the fellowship.

It was especially fine to see SlapShot and OchoCinco make the trip up north to join us. WIth Stone Cold and myself, that made a full third of us that were around when “Area 51” was the only workout in these parts.

I know at least 4 pax were dusting me in the ladder, but it was too dark and I was too tired to know who they were. I can only assume Ocho Cinco was one though.

The Donkey Kong was the highlight of the show (or lowlight depending on your perspective). I think Puddin’ Pop was one of the few to join me on another run up the mountain over the “barrels” after our own dizzy-inducing roll. It was shortly after this that Skywalker disappeared (something about work I think – Good to see you out there brother!).

At some point I’m going to have to bring out the Sisyphus. Maybe next timeā€¦

Shore, wow! what a beatdown. My legs were feeling the pain until I went to bed last night. I’m just glad that I did have to leave early so that I didnt have to jump over the “barrels” going up Grandma Mountain.
Ditto on Ocho and Slapshot. Great to see you guys.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
