Return to Folsom

It’s been a long time since YHC has Q’d at Folsom. It’s a combination of work schedule conflicts and the insecurity of being the only PAX in attendance that can’t grow facial hair. Gear Wrench asked YHC back in October to grab a Q at Folsom in November (since YHC isn’t prolific in the Q department). YHC picked one up and tried to decide on a Weinke that wouldn’t disappoint the bearded brethren. Here’s how it went.

PLEDGE

Warmup: 1 SSH IC (a.k.a. the Whoopee warmup)

Thang: Brisk mosey to the tennis courts for 4 corners escalator.

  • Corner 1: 10 Mike Tysons
  • Corner 2: 10 Mike Tysons, 20 Squats
  • Corner 3: 10 Mike Tysons, 20 Squats, 30 Flutter Kicks (IC)
  • Corner 4: 10 Mike Tysons, 20 Squats, 30 Flutter Kicks (IC), 40 SSH (SC)

Mosey to the large triangle of roads at Folsom. We began the Bearmuda Triangle. YHC says began because we had to finish on a smaller triangle. The shortest leg of this triangle was approx. 20 yards. The other 2 legs were longer. YHC admits this was overzealous (read: stupid) and Omaha’d to the smaller triangle before a mutiny ensued. Even on the smaller triangle (and flat ground) this still took a while to complete.

Head back down the hill towards the flag. Stop at every light pole for 5 Burpees, 10 Werkins, 15 Reverse Crunches.

Circle up at the flag for 2 minutes of Merkin Ring of Fire. Some PAX were sucking wind about a minute into it.

Time’s up!

Announcements:

  • Christmas Party on 12/3 at Lewis Farm
  • Christmastown 5k on 11/26. We have 4 or 5 track commanders. We need runners HC to Broke on Slack.
  • Care packages for Sgt. Pork Chop (who is now a true Sergeant deployed in Germany)

Prayer Requests:

  • Huck
  • Gumby’s mother
  • Wichita and Pillager are both expecting babies in the next 12 days
  • Our Nation
  • Homeless/ Lonely people this time of year

YHC took us out in prayer

NMM:

YHC remembers when Huckleberry was site Q at Folsom. There were a few times when he was the only PAX posting at Folsom. After that long dry spell, some old PAX started posting again and many new guys have arrived on the scene. Folsom is now a thriving AO with a strong core of battle hardened bearded beasts that represent all 3 Fs proudly. Please understand, YHC isn’t dismissing any other Gashouse AO in the least. He’s just happy to see Folsom accelerating once again. Thank you, Huckleberry. Your “never quit” attitude kept Folsom rolling through the lean times. AYE!

Now if YHC could just grow a beard…….
