Yet another simulated battle training session was held for the 12 men that posted in the gloom of Mineral Springs Park. Well, poorly simulated battle at best.

Gloom observations:

3 FNGs. That’s a record for SOS and YHC. One FNG has a National Guard t-shirt on. Mechanized Infantry – Hoah!! Two Stroke has found our little corner of Anderson county. Stoked to see him here. Hook and Ladder is cranking it up early. He’s even dragging Steamer into his subterfuge. I Try gets in a zinger or two at Hook’s expense. References were made to conversations with one’s phallus. Good thing no “Hate Hate”s were present. Slug, Duplo, Carol Shelby and Octane are plotting a morning assault on a missing PAX. Watch your six Bobbi with an “I”. 

The warm-up:

SSH x 15 IC, Windmill x15 IC, Mountain Climber x 20 IC, Mericans X 20 IC, and another lesson in proper 30 second hamstring stretch.

The thang:

Mosey to the truck. Every man grab a 50 lb bag of corn (Battle Buddy). Mosey through the tunnel of meth and over to the parking lot. Upright rows and Military press. x20 IC. Count off by 6. 1 with 1, 2 with 2, 3 with 3, you get the idea. Teams take one bag of corn over to the tank (M18 Hellcat?). One team member from each team goes to truck to retrieve another Battle Buddy from the truck. Other team member goes back for the “man” left behind at the parking lot. Now send one team member with a Battle Buddy back to shovel flag and drop them off. Come back and all team members take a Battle Buddy to the stage on far end of park. Lot’s of upright rows and Military presses with our buddies. Plank fun, dollies, and boxcutters were had while waiting for the six. Times up. Take all the Buddies back to the truck.

FWIW – running around for 40 minutes while carrying/bench-pressing a bag of corn is harder than it sounds. Post next time YHC announces “Maize days” or “Corn-ucopia” and find out fer yerself.


Hyco 5k, Ragnar, Whitlelope, phone cut off here, so I missed some of the announcements.

Prayers for Quickie family, T-bag family , and others dealing with cancer. Other prayers were heard.


Until next time. Over and out.
