The BackBlast:

Gotta love Ecclesiastes 4:9-2 if you are in F3…it permeates throughout all we do:

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone. Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

We were a great 3 strands today! Train was set to be our Q today, but had “mission interrupted” (Jesus role modeled many of these where He stopped to render spiritual and physical aid en route to another purpose)  to aid a homeless person in peril en route. Nice work to serve the higher priority Train. Having communicated he would not be on time, the “rest of the pax” got things moving until he got to the AO.

“Rest of pax” is a misnomer since we had 2 plus Train. Many pax traveling, too many on IR, and a few MIA today.

COP: Lead by YHC – Michael Phelps, Abe Vigodas, Imperial Walkers, Peter Parkers, Parker Peters and Mountain Climbers. 1/4 mile mosey around AO start. Shared the principles and mission (of course!).

THE THANG: Seeing no Train yet, YHC led on the fly:
