  • For all of those who are interested and available to go with me, I am planning a trip to Wilmington, NC to assist in hurricane Florence recovery and donate time and goods for the weekend of 10/26-10/28.  Here is the basic plan:

    Friday 10/26: Load up the trucks and leave Hampton Roads after work (approx. 6pm). Drive to my in-laws’ house in Angier, NC (arrive approx. 9:30pm).  They have plenty of room for anyone that wants to come (they can comfortably house about 15 visitors).  We will spend the night there.

    Saturday 10/27: Get up early on Saturday morning to head down to Wilmington, NC where we will post for a boot camp workout with F3 Cape Fear at their Baywatch AO in Wrightsville Beach at 7am.  Finish at 8am and get set up for a work day in Wilmington helping clean up and repair as directed by the HIM of F3 Cape Fear.  Finish working around 5-6pm and head back to the in-laws’ house in Angier (arrive approx. 8pm) where we will again stay the night.

    Sunday 10/28: Off the books F3HR workout Q’d by YHC in the park immediately behind the house (0700-0745) followed by a short Bible study.  Eat some breakfast and load up to head north back to Hampton Roads around 9-10am (arrive approx. 1-2pm)

    Anyone is welcome to come, just please let me know either via text or comment here or on Facebook if you are a hard commit so that I can plan rides.  I have two seats available in my truck, but we can take as many vehicles as necessary.
