Another stupid idea

15 Pax defied cantores and posted to Shawshank despite the sub-freezing temperatures. The difference in warmth of the fartsack in comparison to the AO was a good 50 degrees depending on the amount of methane present in said sack. These are the mornings that #warstories are made for. To top it off YHC had a terribly stupid idea to “enhance” the already terribly stupid idea that is the merlot mile. Well there’s not much more to say other than it was cold and we did stupid stuff, oh and Notebook didn’t stop talking the whole time. You would think he would want to keep all the hot air he could in his body. Without further ado…

The Weather: 25ish, did I mention it was cold?

  • As always it was a fun time leading the men of Shank. There is never a lack of hard working Pax or mumblechatter
  • Hot Tub from F3 Grandstrand joined us this morning. Hope he enjoyed his visit.
  • Cobains for the boring backblast but YHC did not have enough time to be very creative this time around.
