8 HIM’s posted at Chop Shop. The conditions were ideal. The moon was full… we were patiently waiting for the moon to fall but it seemed to hang in th sky taunting us as if the sun would never rise. The grass had just enough morning dew to cause the sand and dirt to stick to us… YHC was taken back to days gone by when playing outside and getting dirty was the only agenda. It was 73 degrees with 90% humidity. Perfect for what was in store. As the Pax rolled up they noticed lighted cones as if they were on a runway – ready for takeoff!
