Wet, but no rain. Foggy, but we could still see the 95.1% full moon shining down on us. 60 degrees means summer is almost here.


Moseyed from parking lot to flag and grabbed a block on the way.

  • Honeycutts 10 each arm
  • Teapots x 10 total

Talked about completing the Chattanooga Marathon Relay this past weekend with Toe Tag, WuzntMe, and John Doe. Initially I had no desire to participate in this event, but I decided to push myself and commit to the team/event. It was a rewarding experience and I was thankful I changed by initial decision. Encouraged the PAX to step out and commit to doing something they may not have a desire to complete, but something they know will make them better. Sign up for a 5k, 10k, bike race, ANYTHING. Come join us for the 5k at 5a for a few weeks and see how much your fitness improves. Take that step and make a move.


There was only 1 howl (if you can call it that) during the howling monkey routine. Most of the noise was grunting. Although no one channeled their inner mutant coyote, the timing of the routine was perfect having a young female running the circle around the flags witnessing this manly display. Only thing missing was 9Volt’s Flag/Eagle Crotch underwear.


Battery will soon be T/Th/S. Ridgecut will soon be the most desirable AO on W/F (you should see the size of their…)
