Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Backblasts

14 total PAX showed up at BOHICA, temperature and humidity was typical.  After a few minutes of PAX gathering, Seatdown brought Drone  a sweater from his vehicle.  I guess there was a bet in fantasy football last year and the loser had to wear a sweater during a beatdown.
