Completely Stupid and Udderly Pointless

Guatemala Medical Mission Trip 2019 – After a long clinic day in a remote jungle village, then a harrowing 4×4 trek across flooding rivers (had to tow the van stuck mid-river on one of them), we finally arrived back at the hotel and Seadoo joined YHC to cool off in the pool before dinner. No sooner had we arrived but the heavens opened and we swam a few laps while thick cold rain pelted us from above and drowned out the mumble chatter. YHC suggested a little Dora action might be fun, and Seadoo readily agreed. No sooner had we…

Whistling dixie, YHC gathered 12 studly southern gentlemen around Old Glory to enlighten them of the coming battle. A nation divided against itself can not stand, so terms were set yesterday following WDog that North and South would compete in plank position – the most merkins in 45min wins the day. The SOJ Rebels to be led by DTH while the Yankee Aggressors at 45MOM would follow the flamboyant banner of Hardywood. Here follows the true accounting of how a few good Southern gentlemen gave life and limb for the honorable cause of claiming merkin victory… The BATTLE: Start with…

Most people discuss the food, Dogpile, or what is planned for the weekend during Coffeeteria at ET’s on Saturday morning. Not TYA, Ollivander and a host of others. Nope they discuss a CSAUP that really is Completely Stupid. Thus the birth of the Shenandoah Shenanigans. Without getting too deep in the weeds, the plan is to cover 107 miles of the Appalachian Trail that runs through Shenandoah National Park. To make this an easier feat, we will begin at the northernmost park on the park in Front Royal, VA and continue south on the AT to Afton, VA. This seemed…

43 PAX from across the F3 Nation came out to Dogwood Dell on Saturday night to find out the answer to the question on everyone’s mind: Would we be getting in the James River? Turns out the answer was no but we did the following: Muster Up in Amphitheater for admin stuff: Roll call, Ruck inspection (apparently TYA’s unabridged version of War & Peace is 30 lbs) and assign team leader of Cowbell. Move over to field next to dogpark and form squads. Mess up #1 rewarded us with 113 Ruck Squats. Some more warm up, secure coupons, and other…

RVA Pax – Even though there is still time to sign up for the Ruck event starting on Saturday evening 3/23 if you cannot participate (or are too scared to try) then you can still participate in the other activities: Friday Night 3/22 – Happy Hour at Triple Crossing (VCU location – 113 S Foushee) starting around 6ish. Come out and meet up with PAX coming in from out of town. Saturday Morning Dogpile @ 7 AM – The Q will be DREDD from CLT. We’ve told him this is F3 Nation’s best AO. We need 50+ PAX there to…

For a number of different reasons, there has been some entertaining Mumblechatter among the PAX in regard to YHC’s most superb ShovelFlag, created in preparation for our newest AO, The FORGE, starting 4/4/19. The original design seemed flimsy and labor intensive, so YHC developed a better design – stronger, lighter, and capable of lengthy extension.  For those of you interested in making your own version of the DTH Original, below are the necessary steps… Historical Note: YHC’s Flag soared above the United States Capitol on the day of YHC’s Graduation from the Virginia Military Institute (May 14th, 2005). Rah Va…

On a day  presenting weather that epitomizes “The Gloom”, 7 sturdy steeds descended upon the Bear Creek 10 miler to see what the adverse conditions had in store…none were disappointed.  Observations and commendations were as follows: Conditions at BC offered a new and unique challenge.  Cold, extremely damp conditions were coupled with trails that were covered in (deep) mud and made for some cold stream crossings. Newly “installed” obstacle course involved over 50 to 100 downed trees that had to be climbed or jumped over (or crawled under). To say the mud was deep and omnipresent is not an exaggeration. …

Somewhere around 20 brave souls posted on a rainy Saturday morning for a running CSAUP. Please check the PAX list for names as I did not make a list and I am certain I missed several PAX. Sippy started at 5 and hit two laps before everyone else started.  He ran home at the 11am hour and therefore completed 7 laps.  He was the winner of the day. In second place was Bootleg who did 6 laps, but didn’t make the time deadline on the last lap. Four others did 5 laps and then went to the Barbecue.  Swirly, Saab,…
