A Little Too Much Fun Last Night...
|Yesterday, Doc and I put on the IBA, Rucksacks and boots and went out for a training march. We had made some adjustments to our IBAs. So it was a dual purpose training event, for fitness and for seeing if the adjustments worked out. I immediately started to feel some pain between my shoulder blades. After about 2 miles of Doc and I discussing my discomfort (mostly me complaining), Doc decided that maybe we should see if we could adjust it some more. Well, it turned out that a couple of the snaps on the inside of the IBA were actually digging into my back because something had gotten folded over in some weird way. After that I was good to go. We laughed, because I thought it was just that I was being a wimp and that I just needed to get used to it. Doc had the brains and experience to think that there might actually be something sticking in my back. I guess you had to be there... I mean we thought it was funny. But.. then again, we are at Camp Funston and you kind of have to laugh at everything.|
Last night Doc, Tractor and I went into Manhattan to grab some dinner and a few beers. Tractor was the DD as usual. We ate at another BBQ place and it is true that Tractor always gets ribs... always... anywhere we go. If there's ribs on the menu it is certain that he will order them. After a few cold ones, we stumbled upon the coolest record store in Kansas. The place is called Sisters of Sound. It's owned by two sisters. One named Leah and the other Sarah. I did have to make the two mules joke. I was allowed to live.
This record store had a lot of great vinyl and a fantastic selection of CD's. I bought a CD by the Heartless Bastards, and Tractor bought a couple of Pink Floyd CD's and a shirt for a band called Terror Tractor. It's green and yellow and looks like a John Deer shirt, except the deer is skeletal. I don't know if he likes the band, or has even heard them, but it's a great shirt... for someone into tractors.
We went to a couple of other bars and Doc and I had more beer... and then several more... and then one more, etc. We had a good time watching some of the bands that were playing. There was some kind of music fest going on as a benefit to save the prairie or something like that. We got in late and my head did hurt this morning. I don't think I'll be drinking like that again for a while. We did have fun though and it really was a minor hangover. Oh... and I got to try a beer called Hobgoblin. It was tasty. It made me want to start brewing beer again. I guess I'll start that back up sometime in late 2008.
Anyway, happy time is just about over and it's back to training tomorrow morning at O-Dark-30
