The Bear – More cow bell please

10 men posted this morning plus yours truly amid the humid gloom.  Mumble chatter was alive with weekend plans, camp drop offs / pickups, days on the river and nights on the town that included your choice of band.  Sorry for no Pre-Blast (sound check and all that) as I got the call yesterday for my cow bell talents and assisted Nantucket last night it was a great time.  I can’t believe those guys as still doing it after all these years……

We began with a straggler lap to the corner of the parking lot and carioca 1/2 way back switching up to ensure that both legs got equal time.  Lo and behold the straggler lapped worked as we picked up Flank Steak and we made our way around the Horne and back for Warm O Rama
