22 PAX emerged from the inky shadows of Jaycee Park to explore what Nightmare this AO could present to them. After some brief mumblechatter about how to properly dress for such weather, YHC called the troops to attention. Easier said than done as the mumblechatter continues throughout. Not to worry… YHC knew he would have their full attention soon enough. As Amphibious pointed out, “We’re not here to make friends.”

And with that, A mosey to the gate of Country Park ensued to kick off what would become a:


SSH x 30 IC

Parker Peters x 20 IC

Peter Parkers x 20 IC

String Rippers x 15 IC

Mosey down to the intersection

People’s Chair w/ Overhead Claps x 20 IC

Mosey down to the gravel clearing

People’s Chair w/ Forward Claps x 20 IC

Mosey to the “twists & turns”

LBCs x 25 IC

Mosey to the Brick Pillars at the Base of the “hill”

(We really need an official name for this hill, and the tree at the top)

It was then time to introduce a new kinda beatdown AKA:

The Thang (part 1):

The Murderhorn

100% speed to the top of the “hill”

5 Burpees

5 Copperhead Squats

5 Diamond Merkins (“Nose to the ground, Tommy Boy”)

That’s 1 set

Rinse & Repeat adding 5 of each exercise until you pyramid to 20. Then back down by 5s to 5 of each exercise

(Looked good on paper… no it didn’t)

The Thang (part 2)

And with that, YHC was #SMOKED
