3 Pax gathered under the parking lot lights at Joust on a chilly spring morning. Based on the attire and numbers you might have guessed it was December. The Q was carrying what looked like a grocery bag use to pick up a dog’s business, but the disclaimer was made and off we went.
Mosey back to and around the track for:
Triangle of Pain (you can’t really circle up with 3 PAX):
20 SSH IC
20 IW IC
20 Mtn Climber IC
10 Merkin IC
After that the Q revealed a flashlight and asked Smokey to pick a slip of paper from the bag. It read
“It cannot be seen, cannot be felt, cannot be heard, cannot be smelt. It lies behind stars and under hills and empty holes it fills. It comes first and follows after, ends like, kills laughter.”
The Pax had 1 minute to solve the riddle and failed this time (answer: The Dark) so to Grandmother Mtn we went for 11s – toes to bar at the top and LBCs at the bottom
Smokey tried for a rename today by virtually Slaloming down the frosty slopes of Grandma, work was done and the Pax plotted their strategy to solve the next riddle.
After the 11s, Yeti chose the riddle. It read:
“What is the beginning of eternity, the end of time and space, the beginning of every end and the end of every race?”
Again 1 minute to solve and Yeti had the answer before he finished reading – the Letter E
The reward was a quick trip to the school wall for some posture wall sitting and traditional People’s Chair – much better than 11s on a steep hill and the motivation to solve the riddles increased
Smokey was up again with the riddle and pulled a slip reading:
“What is nowhere but everywhere, except where something is?”
Again a minute to solve and the Pax were stumped though Smokey was close with oxygen. (answer: Nothing) so down to the field we went for 7s across the field – squats at the far side and money humpers on near side
Yeti pull the next riddle which was:
“The more you cut me, the bigger I grow. What am I?”
Another minute passed and the Pax were stumped (answer: a Hole).
Jack Webb let out a little chuckle and descended onto the field to lead us in a quick round of 1-10 merkins with 4x air presses
We were out of time so back to the cars for COT
