Slippery When Wet

The route at today’s Pub Run was brought to you by Linus who called this route a couple of months ago.  Inbound Gaston Day School Road, left on Armstrong Park Drive, Left on S. New Hope, Right on Lee, Left on Perry, right on Armstrong Park Road and back to the Pub.  This route seems like it is uphill the whole time which I why I chose it.  Stroganoff gave me the book, “Living with a Seal” and I have been enjoying the read.  Based on what I am reading, I will not complain about the suck (or try not to) for the near future.

Yesterday Slaw posted the inner album cover of Bon Jovi’s “Slippery When Wet” instead of the album cover during this twitter album challenge.  There is a difference between the inner and outer cover and Short Sale called him out.  However, the difference is good and Nantan approved.

Everyone made it back safely and pushed the rock with SA leading the way.

Great work!

Final Thought:  When is somebody going to start a Change.org petition to rename “Neverland” as an official Gashouse AO?

Embrace the Suck

YHC had decided to try the stairs behind Robinson Elementary again whenever he Q’d the Sammich. As luck would have it Whoopee was looking for a Q for today. (This was while Gastone was leading us to the same location for a beat down yesterday. c’est la vie)

4 were there when it was time, a few short with Dry Rub out and Whoopee “on call”, but we continue on.

No Disclaimer

A quick ruck to the bank for the pledge and we were off down Riverwood Pkwy.

As we approached Gastone’s hill the PAX was queried “before or after?” Not much was said, so YHC inquired again. This time DaVinci spoke up and said let’s get over with.

A quick trip up and back and we continued up Riverwood.
Frogger across Union and on behind Robinson Elementary to the stairs.

Elevens were done here with merkins at the top and squats at the bottom.

We then made our way back via Hawks Nest and Robinwood.


The announcements were summarized as this is a busy time coming up.

Prayer Requests
Dry Rub’s M for recovery
All those traveling.
Each Other.

YHC took us out.

It’s great to see DaVinci being a regular at the Sammich.

Until next time.

Watts Up powering down.
