Ducks Don’t Walk Backwards for a Reason

by | May 1, 2018 | Back Blasts

QIC: No-See-Um
PAX POSTED: No-See-Um, No-Ski, Haka, Dillio, Grouper

5 Pax on hand for a perfect morning in the gloom here at #TheRanch.  There are some mornings that are easier than others to get up and at it……this was one of those for YHC and probably b/c of having the Q.  So much more fun and exhilarating when “you know what’s gonna happen”……….MUAHHAAHH!!!
