Slow start as Jason and Aaron struggled to get our advanced technology working. After eventually swallowing their pride, they begged the wolf to assist and the wolf (Joe) answered the call and we were off and running.
Chili was the meal of choice, and we were quickly reminded why the meal had been previously banned. Farting commenced about 15 minutes after consumption.
