Route21 shortcut and another thang

AO: Starting Line

When: 09/22/2021

QIC: Script Kiddie

PAX (4): Ace Ventura, Janeway, Script Kiddie, Sirmixalot


YHC  got to the AO right at 5 and found Sirmixalot there ready for a ruck, and soon after Janway arrived too, so the pre-ruck PAX count was set at 3 and it was time to head out, once the flag was planted.

Ace arrived at 530 but due to an over ambitious PAX, it was me, the pre-ruck went a bit long, but once we were back and I grabbed the speaker & set the playlist, it was time to mosey


I really enjoy keeping everyone guessing where the warmup will occur, so we headed away from the park to where the Dawsonville farmers market happens and circled up there.

Disclaimer was given and warmup was begun.

SSHs, Hillbillies, Windmills, and Moracan night clubs were the warm up, and after that we headed up the stairs back to the road and on to Thang1

The Thang:


Route 21, shortcut

Started at a lightpost with 3 merkins, 3 Big Boy, and 3 squats

Mosey to the next lightpost then
6 merkins, 6 Big Boy, and 6 squats
Another mosey to the next lightpost
9 merkins, 9 Big Boy, and 9 squats
Repeat, and increase by 3 until you get to 21,
All the PAX were glad to have Thang1 in the histroy books

Moved over to the area right in front of the Racing hall of Fame
first round we did 5 Derkins, 5 Step ups, 5 Dips
Moved to the winners circle and do 5 burpees
The first round YHC realized that the benches were not strong enough to hold the PAX weight so we had to adjust
10 Jump squats, 10 WWII and 10 merkins
Back to the winners circle and had them do 5 kraken burpee(burpee with 3 hand released merkins)
15 Lunges, 15 WWII setups & 15 lunges(Alpha count)
After last round it was stated the winners circle was a bit to slick so we stayed were we were and did 5 star jump burpees
20 Lunges, 20 WWII setups & 20 lunges(Alpha count)
5 BDE burpees (burpee with Bonnie Blairs and a jump squat)
At that point it was time to call head to the flag and move to the COT



NameOrama and Count (4)

Acceleration point
Ace mentioned that when you look past the fear you have and work to overcome it true victory is on the other side, basically do not let fear overwhelm you but overcome fear so you can have a victory and grow.

Prayer request
Pray for Trojan and Skynyrd dealing with nerve issues
Prayer for all that are dealing with Covid
Prayer for Janeway and issues/decisions he and his M are facing

Ball of men/Prayer

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Time for coffeeteria and a quick thank you to Sir Mixalot for brining the java!
Janeway had to head out to get to work, and Sir Mixalot, Ace and I headed to enjoy some coffee and conversation.

It was good conversation about everything from old shows, to vaccine, to several other things but at that point it was time to head out.
It was great to get another chance to lead this great group of men and help push us all to get  better and learn about each other along the way.
