12 men showed up for this very special V x 2 post. This was the first AO for Batteau and the first Q for YHC.
COP: 25 SSH, 25 LBC, 20 Merkin, 20 DKB
Mosey over to one of Forest Hill Park’s namesake features for a little Monday fun. The Thang:
Valley of Doubt – Modified Jacob’s Ladder with 1 merkin top of the hill, run down the valley, 1dip, run up the next hill, 2 merkin, back down the valley 2 dips, repeat to 10.
Triton’s Revenge – Complete a loop around the pond. Perform a burpee at lamp post and add one at each lamp post. 1 burpee at post 1, 2 burpees at post 2, 3 burpee at post 3, etc. to completion for all 10 posts.
Head slightly down Reedy Creek and pair up. One partner squats with a rock of success and the other partner runs to top of hill and completes 10 merkins and 20 two count American Hammers, then switch for 6 rounds.
Run back to flag up a hill to be named later to close out the morning. The names uttered for this hill on the return run would make this post NSFW.
Numberama, namearama, COT and Swirly took us out.
NMS – It perfect weather for this initial AO and for a first Q. The morning felt much like the first day of school for a first year teacher. Pretty excited, a little nervous and hoping for no revolt. Much to my surprise the cars kept coming and a solid crew formed. The cart led the horse a few moments during the morning, but with the gracious guidance of the veteran Pax, they helped YHC stay on track.
We welcomed one FNG (Noodler) who clearly has a great level of fitness. He, Last Chance and Fudd dominated the hills, as there were many this morning.
The story of the flag that graces my shovel was shared. It was sent to me by a after being flown by the 37th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Unity on a B-1B in Syria and Iraq in Operation Inherent Resolve. I had been saving it for something more meaningful than just putting it in a frame. Perhaps like men of a certain age, I did not want it to just collect dust and be forgotten about. It is with the greatest pride I share it and this morning with the Pax. Thank you gentlemen.

Reminder -Tuesday we are going for gold. The old pax record of 43 will be smashed and we will hit 60 total pax across 3 AOs by whatever means necessary. Text, call, email your brothers. If you have to send an invite via a carrier pigeon, make it happen.
Dominate your Monday.
