A Thanksgiving of Rocks


Two intrepid souls, ( and 7 wandering deer) arrived at Batteau for a Rock oriented beatdown to celebrate the First Thanksgiving in Virginia which occurred on Dec 4, 1619.

Mosey to Minutes of Mary

Sippy took us out.


YHC was patiently waiting while 7 deer were grazing by the field by the stone house, at 0527 YHC thought perhaps it might be a solo effort this am. At 0529, Sippy rolled in to disperse the deer.

Mumblechatter was light this am due to the fact while one of us was counting the other was doing cadence; although, discussions of the 100K were prevalent during the first mosey.

Congrats to TYA and Swirly for doing something that YHC will never do while still sane.

  1. Sipp, Thanks for being there today, my Solo plan would have been no where near that level of speed nor intensity.

  2. Agreed. It was “fun” to discover together how hard it is to run backwards carrying a rock. This was one of the best beatdowns of recent memory. Thanks for pushing me today, brother!
