For the last few years, YHC has decided to give back during his birthday week (46th birthday was on the 22nd, btw!) This year, 8 fine people were served Minced Pork BBQ sandwiches, cole slaw, hot mac-n-cheese, pototoe salad, cupcakes and tea. All were most appreciative. One resident asked for seconds but was shutdown by the lady in charge because of his blood sugar levels! He wasn’t too happy. This is one one my family’s favorite things to do and one of F3RVA’s most important. BE THE LIGHT!! Tomorrow, EF Hutton has the honors. F3RVA is filling them up this…

Setting a record on “The Mountain” a hearty 16 gloom warriors from all over the Carolinas, Alabama, Louisiana, and Virginia climbed aboard Day 2 of the DTH pain train. A handful of yesterday’s FNG’s solidified their membership and the PAX also welcomed two fresh FNG’s for a taste of F3 glory.

6 men of purpose united for an evening of suds and buds. Temperatures were 70 and sunny. According to the 17-year old evaluating the PAX’s driving skills, the following might have happened: The PAX assembled with 2 F’s in mind: 2nd F: Beers with your buds; 3rd F: The ante for attendance was bringing food for Feed More. Roughly 100 cans or can-equivalents raised, at least according to Handshake’s amortization curve, which itself is experiencing negative convexity.

With the menu all planned out and all the ingredients bought for dinner for our friends at the Daily Planet on Sunday night, I was ready to cook up the meal for 10: Baked Spaghetti, caesar salad, bread, and cookies for dessert. Then I happened to see Mr Roger’s backblast from what he brought the night before: Baked Spaghetti, caesar salad, bread, and cookies for dessert. I guess great minds think alike? Anyway, Oyster said it was no big deal, so one of my 2.0s and I brought the meal and it was joyfully welcomed despite the repetitive menu. If…

A dozen men posted for the Saturday beatdown and fellowship at the Bridge Ministries in Cumberland county. YHC has never experienced quite a large group at this AO, and to say it was uplifting is an understatement. Men with varying backgrounds, stories of adversity, redemption and hardship, coming together with one common purpose…. Saab took the Q today while TYA provided his usual commentary, which reminded the PAX what F3 is really about. Saab abides

Whelp, I am not that good at posting backblasts in a timely manner. Please forgive me… It was a lovely morning in Blackwell for the four gloom warriors to take the field. We started with a COP, as usual. It consisted of the regular stuff that I do – you know, SSHs, DQs, Ukrainian Soldiers, merkins, and the like. Offshore had some coupons – a 40lb kettle bell and a 30 pound ruck plate so YHC decided to use those because it’s not really working unless it hurts a little bit. YHC is going to start bringing a couple of…
