Always 70 and Sunny

Bear with me… it’s been a while


A fantastic PAX of Four won the war against the Monday morning fartsack as YHC made the first return to Batteau since the last tour. A relatively unknown Gloom with City of Richmond’s maintenance on street lights added up to a few obstacles in the dark.

Just as Oyster emerged from his vehicle the clock struck “Go Time” and the PAX were off.

Some words from a daily devotional on the theme of “It’s Go Time”

Look back 12 . . . 18 . . . 24 months. What should you have started doing then so you’d be closer to what you want now? There’s always something.

Now forget it because it’s done, but keep the lesson with you. You have new decisions to make. Future moments depend on these moments.

What are you waiting for? Get started today.

Felt great to get back in the gloom after a few weeks away due to a tweaked back. Near perfect conditions for a late winter time beatdown. Enjoyed it fellas! SYITG.
