5 PAX: Banks, Crunch, FNG-Abacus, Moonlight, Wet Wipe

With Archive holding down the home-front, it fell to YHC to take up the Q mantle and hit the park. Thanks to all the rain, the west side of the park was more flooded than I have ever seen it, so we modified our standard loop to the nearest passable trail. Moonlight and Wet Wipe helped Banks and I show the ropes to their FNG (Abacus). He held up well, or maybe we just weren’t hard enough on him. Time will tell…

  • Motivators IC x7
  • Tin Soldiers IC x20
  • Imperial Walkers IC x20
