The Bear Backblast

A full case (12-Pax) of HIMs showed up at The Bear to sweat and sweat some more.  With TWO FNGs- including one that was being Emotionally Headlocked (EH’ed) for more than a year, the mission and disclaimer were presented and off we went, stealing ideas I picked up at F3 Carterico’s Rolling Stone and from reading one too many Bear backblasts where I failed to post.
