The shovel flag was planted and another flag was hoisted about 40 feet in the air by Down Range who was in town again from Fort Bragg. 36 non-fartsackers then took off for a full trek around the enormity of The Rock campus.

Lots of wrinkles in the playbook at The Rock this morning. First one was Down Range bringing a flag and hoisting it 40 feet in the air (some sort of beach flag thing)…rolled his right front tire over it to hold it in place. Nice addition to the morning’s festivities.
Also, Ray Charles (still technically on the DL with a knee, but did what he could – T-claps) saw a dead buck laying just down from entrance 4. Apparently it was a 6-point, so he calls Pretty Boy Quarterback to bring a saw to liberate the antlers from the beast’s skull after the workout. Strong! That’s going above/beyond for the QIC! See twitter pic posted by Salt Lick.
Great group this morning at The Rock. T-claps to Checkpoint for the DoubleDown, and one of our other 3 (respect) 50+ pax – Iron Horse led the gear pre-work from 6:15-6:45 – Aye!
Saw some strong efforts today – Blitzen is bringing it with smoke boots on the indian run. Joker and Salt Lick were out front on the Starfish work. PBQB had the pax silenced with that one early on. Some of the Area51 regulars felt right at home at The Rock with the Starfish. By the way, how many piled out of the Area51 Clown Car? Impressive.
Also – a few of the pax disappeared prior to COT: Donkey Kong, Busch and his 2.0’s, others? Sound off in comments as to your whereabouts?
T-claps to Pretty Boy Quarterback on his first Q. Nice work brother – the Starfish and hill work were unsavory – much mumblechatter, especially from Bugeater who was moaning about this oversized rock.
