Sundial

Waking up the day after the Tour de Satan bar crawl, I had little intention of doing much, especially anything physical.  Following a lax morning, I was biking around doing some errands, when I got a call from Marmar seeing if I wanted to do some climbing with him and Roxanne.  Quickly forgetting about my …
