The crew is definately feeling the pain, but doing well! We haven't confused anyone too badly and no injuries with the P.T. We hope to amp it up next week to another level... I'm sure the crew isn't looking forward to that! It's all for the good of being safe, efficient, and injury free!

I'll post again next week!
