Pulled into The Valley at 6:45 am, straigt outta Fresno, no stoppin no nothin. Under two hours. It's 29 out. Maybe just one cup of joe before we head to The Meadow. Saw Werner and shook hands. I think he had just woken up.

Macronut gets a call on top of the 4th class pitch. Something about a blind woman...no lie...borrowing his truck for the day back home. Not kinda blind....but seeing eye dog blind mind you.

Lurking Fear is just above the rear window. It's our goal for this summer. When I pull out and stare up at it...the fear lurks in my gut.
