Wake up multiple times a night due to the new 2.0 has made me appreciate the one early morning wake up for the gloom. Because YHC has been out it was determined for the 31st birthday, it would be good to preview what is to coming at the end of the month. PAX were instructed to bring their rucks and be prepared for a preview of The Murph Challenge. We were joined by FL’s state bird, the mosquito…
