On this cool Autumn morning (65 degrees), I arrived to celebrate my 45th birthday at the Badlands.  I challenged the group to consider the 6 factors of 45 (failure to do so would result in penalties).   The PAX was prepared but someone (Saigon Sam) showed up late by a mere 30 seconds.  Oh well, 10 […]
