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

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 […]

Meet Log, your new neighbor!

Posted on

Many GRT and soon to be GRTs will be destroying the Chapel Hill Tough and/or Light the weekend of July 6th, including YHC. Seeing that this was the last Basecamp prior to the event, we wanted to accomplish two things: many miles and getting familiar with The Log. This would also mark Golden Pinky’s final […]

Back to Basics

Posted on

YHC eagerly took the Q last minute after learning a sub was needed.  I was anxious to get back to basic rucking after last week’s Grunge fueled CSAUP that had me in the Briar Chapel Pool fully clothed (for the record, I should’ve know better). YHC was greeted at the AO by 4 other PAx […]
