This trip — we conceived it on the Eight Trey text chain.

A.k.a., the Thread.

About the Thread — not a day passes that thread goes silent. None. The Thread is where we announce anniversaries, our kids’ milestones, the birth of a grandbaby. It’s where we wish one another happy born days and post clips of the celebrations. The Thread is where we congratulate one another on new jobs or business ventures or awards or championships or a retirement. It’s where we coordinate where to connect when we’re in the same city. The Thread is where we’ve arranged an occasional group Zoom call. On the Thread, we share clips of ourselves working out with captions like “getting it in.” The Thread is where we report the previous night’s shenanigans: who was on one or tapped out too soon or ghosted at night’s end. The Thread is where a few dudes profess possessing the best fighting hands in the crew.
