Bravely Conquering the Frozen Tundra

AO: The Hooch

When: 01/17/2022

QIC: BallBoy

PAX (3): BallBoy, Doughboy, Meatball


Johns Creek isn’t known for its snowstorms so this morning was our equivalent to an Arctic Challenge.  With no Q on the sheet, YHC decided to take the helm and ensure that there would be a Hooch beatdown despite the snowy conditions.  While myself and Doughboy were HCs, sadly there were no others with similar determination.  However, a courageous Meatball decided to beat the fartsack and roll the dice on the road conditions, much to his (and our) benefit.


Turns out the roads weren’t that bad so 3 PAX arrived safely and got to work…

We got the blood flowing with a short mosey to the theater followed by some SSH, Weedpickers, Windmills, and Imperial Walkers.  Another mosey around the back of the bakery where the warm-up got more serious.

Three rounds of the following:

  • 30 – second Balls to the Wall
  • 20 Donkey Kicks
  • 10 Burpees

After the third round there was little doubt we were warm, so we moseyed back to the flag… and the coupons

The Thang:

In true Arctic Explorer style, YHC went with a routine inspired by our favorite explorer, Dora…

With 3 PAX and 2 coupons alternating based on the ‘timer’, the following were performed:

  • 100 Squat Thrusters, 20 Merkins performed by ‘timer(s)’
  • 200 Skull Crushers, 20 Squats performed by ‘timer(s)’
  • 300 Coupon Curls, 20 LBCs performed by ‘timer(s)’

A quick parking lot loop and we returned to greet Captain Thor… 1-4 ratio of Sit-ups to American Hammers going from 1 Sit-up, 4 AmHam to 10 Sit-ups, 40 AmHam.

30 Monkey Humpers were thrown in to round out the time


Prayers for friends/relatives battling COVID and other issues.  Prayers for the efforts of the Climb Kili challenge in February as this is an important fundraiser for the UboraTZ ministry.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

It takes a lot to keep a beatdown down, more than what Mother Nature gave us this weekend.  I’m thankful (and not surprised) I wasn’t alone out there.  Great to lead this morning and great to warm up afterwards at Waffle House!
