Digging a hasty fighting position

AO: Starting Line

When: 06/15/2022

QIC: Sirmixalot

PAX (3): Script Kiddie, Sirmixalot, UberDad (FNG)


When you find yourself in a pinch you can do a lot more than you think with a entrenching tool, a rifle, and a bayonet.  Unfortunately for the PAX who showed up to Starting Line this morning I had none of those items. It turns out it was time for a Bear Grylls beatdown…Improvise, Adapt, Overcome.


Disclaimer issued.

SSH, Good Mornings, Weed Pickers, Sun Gods, Michael Phelps.

SK and I decided during the warm up to do a Super Route 21 for the BD.

The Thang:

Proceeded to the top of the stairs and moseyed down to the alternate entrance to City Hall where the lightposts are to begin our Route 21 Journey

Route 21:

PAX does 1 merkin, 1 WW2, and 1 Jump squat. Mosey to next lamp post and increase reps to 2 each. Continue moving reps up by one at each lamp post.

Made it to 16 reps and then moseyed back to the circle. Instead of Mary we did some stretching to finish up.


Count-a-rama , Name-a-rama – FNG Naming – Settled on UberDad fairly quickly as it sounds like FNGs main hobby currently is taxiing his kids to their activities.

Acceleration Point – Script Kiddie noted that Kobe Bryant was able to move through past successes and failures without getting stuck by narrowing his focus to only the shot that was in front of him at any given moment. – Good reminder for us all to not get bound up in our past/future – failures OR successes. Focus on the task at hand and do it to the best of your ability.

Prayers – Coffeteria

Naked-Man Moleskin:

The scheduled QIC had some things come up and was unable to make it to the BD this morning – We were able to make it work.  That humidity turned a moderate BD into a more intense experience to be sure but glad that we made it happen.
