A total of 46 guys, including an FNG (big respect) showed up today for the first RVA CSAUP event in quite a while. An eager 45 (including 3 ruckers) gathered before 0600 in the dark gloom of Dogpile ready to roll. The temperature lived up the CSAUP name, it was chilly, but the adrenaline was flowing. 0600 on YHC’s watch, so the ruckers hit the road and the rest of us grabbed the shovel flags and moseyed to the COP circle for disclaimer (you v you and pay attention to your body) and COP, including: SSHs DQs Helicopters Deadman Hangs…

4 knuckleheads looked at each other and questioned why they were here….YHC did his best to keep balls-and-back dry as possible as we ventured out into the cold and wet areas surrounding Mary. Copious amount of running coupled with various exercises along the way. Moleskin: YHC learned some new terms today including “White Knuckling” and “Seagulling”….quite possibly, one has to precede the other…. Announcements were quick as the pax was ready to jump in their cars, and showed no-patience for the Q’s eloquent and awe-inspiring close. Saab abides
