Jumanji Jungle Love

Environmental readings:  36 degrees, 0 out of 10 UV index, darkish skies, a chill in the air due to the breeze in the sky (it was this point YHC decided shorts were a bad idea).

6 PAX gather in the Jumanji Jungle for the last workout of February 2015 with the goal of getter better. Its a beautiful morning in the jungle, with no snow and no wintery mixes of any sorts. So, lets make the most of it, shall we?

I always enjoy coming to this AO.  The Jumanji Jungle is an awesome AO of wide open spaces with lots and lots of options.  I guess you could say I love the jungle.  Which reminds me of Morris Day and the Time and their version of Jungle Love.  So, as you continue reading, first click and listen as you read.  Ladies and gentleman, Morris Day (crank up the volume):
