  • YHC had more planned, but ended up going with some audibles and still going into OT today (3 min).
  • Great mumble chatter along the way, until we got gassed towards the end.
  • Point taken by YHC from @dba suggestion. When going off the reservation, the Q will mention that so PAX can haul their water with them. Hydrate or Die!
  • We had a nice coffeeteria afterward at the new DD. @apnea, @needles and YHC enjoyed some chat and coffee.
