Always 70 and Sunny

732 days


Fog, fog, fog, humidity, humidity, but  that did not stop 16 Super Troopers from posting to W Dog this morning. YHC arrived with 5 PAX members already in the gloom, ready to dig a little deeper. YHC planted the flag and waited…..0530….Time to Mosey.

Bricks in front of The Carillon=COP….x12 Don Quixote, x 24 Imperial Walkers, x 12 Copperhead Squats, x 24 Box Cutters, x 12 Flutter Kicks, x 24 Freddie Mercuries, x 12 Merkins, x 24 Plank Jacks. Time to mosey….

On The Lawn….PLT (Partner Leg Toss)…partner up and x 100 PLT per PAX member.  TIme to mosey..

YHC observed several 2.0’s at The Convergence playing with the rope climb sooooo, YHC was think, “Why not?”  The PAX moseyed our way over to Vida course and Rope Climb…Very Modified Indian Run, in that PAX formed a line down the trail. As one PAX member climbed the rope, everyone else performed LBC’s. PAX member finished climbing and went to the back of the line. Well, as YHC has observed…some ideas do not always pan out. LOTS of mumblechatter through first 2 or 3 climbers, so YHC took control with exercise and called out IC, box cutters, flutter kicks, and finally SSH to finish off the first rotation of climbing. And 1 rotation was all this PAX needed….not a total fail and YHC thinks a majority of the PAX climbed to the top!! Vinny, YHC can help you make it to the top next time. TIme to mosey….

At the Police Memorial…good ole triple check. Triple up…..one partner does merkins, one partner does dips, one partner runs to the top of that hill and touches the fence. 3 rotations with 3 exercises! DONE. Time to mosey….

At The Lawn….AYG sprint towards The Carillon. This has become a staple for YHC Q’s. With time to spare…

Modified 21, in that PAX will go to the highest number time allows. 1 Merkin, 1 Situp. 2 Merkin, 2 Situps. 3 Merkins, 3 Situps. 4 Merkins,  4 Situps. 5 Merkins, 5 Situps. 6 Merkins, 6 Situps. 7 Merkins, 7 Situps. All IC.

Times up. Mosey back to the flag!

To all men of F3 RVA, the past 732 days has been a complete blessing and YHC could not imagine life without F3. Totally awesome and a complete testament to the men, 2.0’s, and your families.

  1. Swimming makes it difficult to climb ropes. Great Q – Flatty! Awesome work punching the clock for two years with F3RVA.

  2. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Excellent Q Flatline and congrats on your two years buddy!
    Welcome Scar – great to have you in RVA – keep on coming out man..
    Way to work guys.
    See y’all in the gloom..

  3. Nice work Flatline. Always enjoy your stream of consciousness BBs and equally flowing Qs. You covered a lot today.

    Congrats on 2 years. Great having you in the PAX.

    We are closing in on a full starting lineup of Institute Men…or, as TYA likes to say, the uneducated. Maybe we can form our own Nano Region!

  4. Great Q and congrats on two years Flatline! Sign me up for the rope climbing class w Vinny, i hope nobody taped my attempt!

  5. Congrats on 2 years Flatline. I enjoyed climbing the rope, I’m sure I haven’t done that since the days of the VMI Obstacle Course.

  6. Happy 732nd, Flatline. Glad I could celebrate with you.

    I doubt even 3 credit hours dedicated to rope climbing would help me.

    How did we go a full Q with not a single pager reference?

    Welcome, Scar. Glad to partner with you on the Triple Check.
