  • #6:  Bear Crawl halfway up the Ramp

NMS:  Loved having all you guys out today! Sorry (not sorry) for the New Glory beatdown – and mad respect to you all for pushing hard. YHC enjoyed chatting with LIFO Nails before catching up with Scrum and Doozy, then quality time with Doozy to round out the 30min beatdown. YHX loved seeing some brothers pairing off for quality mumble chatter. TClaps to Fresh Prince, Rosie, Dealer, and Machismo for getting past the 3 circuit mark – ya’ll are a tough act to follow, but we all need a rabbit to chase!  For this being the last Forge in a while for YHC, it was just the kind of challenge and coffeerama quality time needed. You’re in good hands with Snuff at the wheel. Keep posting and YHC will see you on the flip side. Love, DTH
