Strong work by 11 PAXs who ventured to Carolina Beach for lots of movement and YOU won.

Strong work and better camaraderie had by all.  Beautiful morning to be on the beach working out.  When you come to Iron Island, there is no James Taylor, no Carolina on My Mind..but rather, your mind is on Carolina Beach.

RX nailed the final stretch to the flag – strong, Usain Bolt like moves.

Merit Badge picked it up on the beach every time he was encouraged.

Thanks to Tea Party and Moab for letting me join their partner team and to Tea Party for the convo during the beach jaunts.

The Hoff – well, he was The Hoff.  Working hard whilst in a constant chatter.  Somehow, I bet the Ranger Instructors were constantly singling him out for something.  But his enthusiasm and spirit is infectious and make us all better.

Moab, Franks, and Mr. Myagi go about their work with a steady pace – quiet and productive.

McFly provided the ears to The Hoff’s chatter. Poor guy.

Tubbs is 7 in 7 down and moving toward 20 in 30.  Keep on him.

Q School this Monday @ Screaming Eagle @ 0530.  @sir_mix_a_lot is Q.

Prayers for fathers everywhere – those legacy dads passed and those passed to soon before their legacy was complete.  Prayers for dads in a uniform somewhere far from their families.

Better w/ Bourbon tonight at the Lazy Pirate.

Strong Work!!! Honor to be the Q. Thank you!
