Ruckers welcomed here

Posted on

Introduction: Haven’t Q’d a non-Sunnyside site in forever – injured off and on in 2018 so have been hesitant to sign up for a bunch of Q’s and then have to give them away later. Anyway, butt (how humiliating) is holding up so far, so thought I’d get cracking on a new adventure for 2019: […]

The perfect route?

Posted on

I roughed out a route the night before not thinking too much about timing and distance. The goal was to get around 6 miles, maybe more if we could do it. As it turns out, the route and our pace worked out almost exactly right. We finished in 119 minutes, just shy of the official […]

2 PAX and Toby

Posted on

A shiny new shovel flag greeted me on arrival at the AO. With that, I knew two things: 1) I wouldn’t be rucking solo, and 2) Chum was in the house! We chatted it up for a bit and eventually realized it would only be the two of us today (and trusty Toby the Dog). […]

Rucking 101

Posted on

Teo and I had been discussing different ways to get new guys involved with rucking. We had never really done a Rucking 101 event; it seemed like the obvious path. Basecamp is a great AO for this type of event, as There’s miles and miles of road and trails that can be traversed in such […]

Audibles called…

Posted on

I have had my eye on a route for awhile which I intended for The Rabbit, but with the opportunity to  lead Basecamp I thought it would fit perfect for what I wanted to do.  Closing out Friday I was confident with route picked, new coupon filled, other coupons gathered, and game plan layed out… […]

Remember the Basics

Posted on

Upon hearing Rambler’s rallying cry to fill in an empty Q sheet, YHC decided answer the call and change his SC to a HC by placing his name upon cell B49. Where there was once white, there was now FUCKING SLAYER to VQ this fine AO. Now all he had to do was get a […]

A tree in the woods

Posted on

The Thang: I came upon the answer today to the age old question:  If a tree falls in the woos and nobody is around to hear it does it make a sound?  Only if it writes a backblast.  To prove this morning happened: The overnight ruck drew away the regulars.  When it became clear I […]

$#!& Sandwich

Posted on

Good trail mileage sandwiched between an EC Ruck PT session at the beginning and another Ruck PT session at the end.  Delicious.   EC Ruck PT Session (0530-0600) 4 brave souls ventured out to Basecamp early to power through a Ruck PT session (aka the base layer of the shit sandwich).  Chum busted out his […]

New Faces and PT

Posted on

YHC rolled up to the AO for my first Q with Sneaky Shoes in the shotgun seat expecting a max of 7 or 8 PAX, but the initial outlook was more than that. IT was new Basecamp faces that put us up to our lucky number, 13! Sneaky Shoes and YHC, as well as Loonie […]

BC Fellowship

Posted on

The Thang: 3 PAX arrived at 0530 for 30 minutes of Ruck PT. 9 stepped off at 0600 at leisurely pace. Griswold found us at around the 1 hour 15 minute mark. By then, Engima, Bright Idea, and Flenderson had peeled off for Other Things. Today was a great day for fellowship. We took it […]
