I've been on a run of beer-themed bds, so I decided to close it out with an homage to the greatest movie ever made about a beer run - Smokey and the Bandit.


Usual mix of mosey and SSH, copperheads, weed pickers, etc.

The Thang:

'We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there...'  To commemorate the epic, 28hr beer run from Atlanta to Texarkana and back ('them boys are thirsty in Atlanta, and there's beer in Texarkana, we'll bring it back no matter what it takes...'), the PAX had to move a truck full of bootlegged Coors (actually my trans-am themed brick) from Texarkana to Georgia, with stops in each state along the way. Just as ~80 percent of the movie is dedicated to the return, eastbound portion of the trip, we started with a short mosey to Texarkana (the pond) Thang 1 - Texas Two Steps Perform 10 dirkens along the pond retaining wall, run up and down the adjoining stairs.  Rinse and repeat, reducing rep count by 2 each time.  Harder than it sounds - thighs were burning and brows were sweating. Carry the beer (brick) to the state by way of a zamperini Indian walk - pass brick overhead down the line to the guy in back, who runs to the front of the line, with brick, and starts process over again.  Note to self: put this one back in the idea box for good. Thang 2 - Arkansas Little Rocks Choose a rock from the drainage swale.  Perform 20 curls, 20 skull crushers, and Colt 45s (15 top half curl, 15 bottom half curl, 15 full curl. Line up stationary along the playground walking path in single file.  Guy at back passes brick to guy in front of him then runs to the front.  Continue to daisy chain until the brick reaches end of path. Thang 3 - Louisiana Lunge Walk Perform 4 count squat, 4 count lunge walk, 4 step walk, from playground to Mater's parking lot.  PAX take turns carrying the brick (beer) for 1 cycle, then hand off to a buddy. Thang 3 - Mississippi Mucho Chestos Starting at first parking space line, bear crawl to next line, 5 count merkin, bear crawl to next line, 5 count wide merkin, etc., through full mucho chesto sequence (regular, wide, diamond, stagger right, stagger left).  Continue full length of parking lot, which was exactly 4 cycles.  This was a bruiser. Thang 4 - Alabama Talladega Nights Adjusting for time, we stayed put in Mater's parking lot.  Perform 25 big boys, take one lap of parking lot (left turns only), then perform 25 single-count Bonnie Blairs, then take another lap. Thang 5 - Georgia Home of the Brave(s) Staying in the parking lot again, we worked our way back toward the flag by performing 3 burpees at the first line, then 5 alpha count tomahawk chops at the third line.  Rinse and repeat alternating exercises at every second line. Mosey to the flag for COT.


Prayers for Speedo's father in law, and for Mater's job search.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Welcome FNG Daisy - keep coming back, it works if you work it.  Always a pleasure to lead and have a little fun.
