12 PAX turned out to “Stay in your lane bro” version of social distancing. Friday evening YHC received a birthday card from my sister simply stating, “I’m pretty sure you won’t forget this birthday”.

In many ways thisContinue reading “BackBlast – louisville lovin’ the hills (Abacus) 2/8/2020”

On the St. Al’s Slack Channel Dauber posted his story of accomplishing the IronPax Challenge despite his mind telling him before and during that he couldn’t do it.
