STORMING INTO WASHINGTON, DC (08/09/2015): FIFTH PLACE

The weekend begins with being let out of work early Thursday afternoon, my car already packed, I hit 81S for roughly four hours. I drive by Philadelphia and then Baltimore before arriving in Sharon Springs, DC after about six hours worth of driving.

The EPIC Storm approaches the Magdalen coast - Déja vu

Ah, tournament nights. Those with electric sparkles in the air, with a pressure so strong it pushes everyone to their limits, aggravated by the strong winds outside?
