Hey mister, are you lost?!


Out of the foggy gloom a lone runner approached the gathering of dark clad gloom warriors. The lean figure masked with silver shocks of beard and long hair slowed and approached with confidence, joining the circle of men as naturally as any veteran. Not a word was spoken initially, each man asking the same question silently – Hey mister, are you lost?! The dawn of epiphany struck Upchuck first, who welcomed Swiper to the fold, making sure to point out the man’s Covid growth made him nearly unrecognizable. Time struck 0530 and the PAX hurled themselves into humid glory – here is how the creatures living in Swiper’s beard tell the tale…

Between the humidity and the dew we all carried at least an extra pound of liquid in our clothing by the end. Appreciate you gents letting me lead today! SYITG
