Independence day celebration!

AO: Rubicon

When: 07/04/2023

QIC: Dipstick

PAX (7): Avis, Dipstick, Groundhog, Ha-ha, Irene, Knight Rider, Shazam


After a brief disclaimer and a mosey, we circled up for:

  • SSH
  • Weedpicker
  • Windmill
  • Imperial Walkers

After we headed off to the coupon pile, I remembered it’s my daughter’s birthday, so we did 4 burpees.

The Thang:

Musical Dora with (mostly) EDM music in honor of Independance Day

Little T – Shaniqua

We all did this one together. I moved here almost a year ago at this point, and I still get mail for 3 different households. So, it reminded me of this song, and I came up with a “good” (see also: bad) exercise for it: Hold plank, and every time you hear “Shaniqua” do a merkin. About 35 total.

Endor – Pump it up


Daft Punk – One More Time


Eric Prydz – Call on Me


Matoma et. al. – Bruised Not Broken

Skull Crushers

Tiesto – Lay Low


Run DMC – It’s Tricky

Breakdance Merkins

Survivor – Eye of the Tiger (I needed one crowd pleaser)


Sean Finn, Corona – Rhythm of the Night

Diamond Merkins, Moroccan Nightclubs as an alternative

Put the coupons back, and head to the flag.  But first, I remembered it was my daughter’s birthday, so we did 4 burpees.


Prayers for Knight Riders friends and family who had their homes damaged from storms recently.

Prayers for Training Wheels and his family as his M recovers from surgery.

Wishing all a happy and safe Fourth of July celebration!
