PAX (8): False Start, FannyPack, Groundhog, Lefty, No-See-Um, Red Ryder, Special K, Stiff Arm
2/1 is a New Moon, meaning no visible moon in the sky & extra gloom. Only one album seemed appropriate, given it’s 43 minute play time. Awesome showing by 8 PAX- clear night sky, mellow tunes, and a full-body blend of Exicon classics. PSA’s on coming events: IronPax (Cinders, in September) and Christmas (it’s 12/25 this year).
Disclaimer, start the music, & head straight to FOD with Cinders. Drop the blocks and circle up:
Morning Call: Mosey a bit to the nearest playground, everyone plank in a row, first PAX does 5 pullups on some weird bars counting off. Other PAX do Mercans in time. Second PAX repeats, continue down the line.
Balls to the Wall, Last Man Standing: Mosey back towards FOD & stop at a random storage container on the way. The corrugated steel walls were both cold and groovy. Special K made that container his own by outlasting us all.
Dora 1-2-3: Back at FOD, pair up for a Cinder Dora 1-2-3.
100 OH Press
Captain Thor: Big boys & alpha count American Hammers in a 1:4 ratio. YHC called the starting number for each set, otherwise on our own.
At about 7:28, I heard Stiff Arm say, “this is excellent”. I have no idea what he was referring to.
All PAX finished at around 43 mins- we had about 30 seconds to appreciate the morning sky as the album wrapped up.
Mosey back to the flag.
Reminders about Climb Kili this month & Hillseeker this weekend. Prayers for those recovering from surgery & injury. Prayers of thanks for all of our leaders.
Awesome to lead this morning. Really great crew at Rubicon, always a rewarding & fun time.
