Farmer Throwback

AO: The Wreck

When: 04/20/2022

QIC: aflac

PAX (16): Bieber, Blue, bronco, Choo Choo, corky, Donor, Doogie, gmonkey, Matt Shields-Norm, Raider, rip, Rooney- timlonergan, Squeak, Switch, Tubbs


Digging through the archives to find a grinder from years past, YHC stumbled upon a gem that was devised after GMonkey dumped a root ball on his toe.


Fetch a coupon from GMonkey’s sled and cusack toward the playground for the following warm-ups:

  • SSH’s
  • Abe Vigoda’s
  • Hillbilly’s

The Thang:

Q divided the PAX in half by having them count-off by 2’s.  Instructions were given as follows:

  • Group 1 would farmer-carry coupons on a loop up the stairs/path to the road, along the road, and back down the new concrete path back to the playground.  All PAX were directed to stay together, and whenever anyone called “stop”, PAX were to perform 20 merkins with hands on the coupons.
  • Group 2 would cycle through Murph exercises (10 Pullups, 20 Merkins, 30 Squats) while waiting for Group 1 to return.
  • Once Group 1 returned, roles were switched.
  • Rinse/repeat until Q called time.

Q was really looking forward to Yankee’s commentary on his music accompaniment (a previously unreleased and incredibly awesome Rush concert from 1981), but alas he was absent.  No Eeyore grumbling today.

Plenty of mumble-chatter on this one, especially during and after round 2.  YHC lost any ability to open/close his fingers towards the end.

With T-5 remaining on the clock, back to the flag with a mere 30 seconds remaining for Mary.


  • Make a point of doing something every day to make someone else’s day a little bit better.

AFLAC out.
