AO: Quaker Crater

Date: February 28, 2022

PAX: Ozone, Bobby Knight, Opie, Bulldog, Sir Charles (R), Jay-Z (R), Snooki (R) and Eggplant (R).

QIC: Eggplant

PAX assembled.  All salty vets, so YHC delivered the mission and disclaimer.  We took at short mosey to the AO’s standard warm-a-rama spot for:


  • Side-straddle hop 20 IC
  • Windmill (slow) 15 IC
  • String-ripper 15 IC
  • Sun-gods forward 15 IC
  • Sun-gods backward 15 IC
  • Imperial Walkers 15 IC
  • Hillbillies 15 IC
  • Copperhead Squats 15 IC

The pax warmed, we moseyed to the bridge for an AO mandatory 20 dips.


Assembled at the bridge YHC explained to the PAX that while I laid out weinkes in the library parking lot pre-workout I noticed a pick up w/ a bed camper in the lot.  Upon reflection, YHC came to the realization that our workout might wake up someone who needed the smartsack.  The pax moseyed up the library, collected the weinke’s/cones, and reset the stations on the road by the bridge.

The Thang was 4 stations with exercises planned for 2 rounds through the stations.  The pax broke into 2 man teams and hit the following stations:


Round 1

  1. 20 Merkins
  2. 20 LBCs (IC)

Round 2

  1. 20 Carolina Dry Docks
  2. 20 Xs and Os

Round 1

  1. 20 Mike Tysons
  2. 20 Squats

We completed the two rounds, Omaha was called, weinke’s/cones collected, and we did 20 more mandatory bridge dips before taking off on our mosey back to the warmarama spot.  There we collected the 6 and did some brief stretching, before finishing our mosey to the shovel flag for:


  • Low Slow Flutters 15 IC
  • Freddy Mercuries-Foghat Style (Slow Ride) 15IC
  • E2K 10 IC both legs
  • American Hammer 15 IC


Opie volunteered to take us out and called our attention to the suffering in Ukraine and Afghanistan.

Enjoyed being with these men in the gloom.  Thank you for the opportunity to lead.
