Personal Narrative: Urban Axes In PA

Decent Essays
It was March 1, 2017 and I had gone hatchet throwing with a couple of veteran friends of mine. The place I went to was called urban axes in PA, where we threw hatchets at targets. At first it was a thirty-minute training session to ensure there was proper safety training. The motto at urban axes was “Axe Throwing.
