$#!& 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 […]

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 […]

Mind Your Attrition Rate

Posted on

We started as a band of 6 brothers. Well, 6 brothers + our trusty ruck mascot that answers to “Toby.” After morning greetings and a brief word about keeping in mind the significance of the upcoming June 6 date (a day back in 1944, when Allied Forces stormed the beaches of Normandy and kicked off […]

The Trail Life

Posted on

4 PAX and 2 canines gathered at the AO to start the Memorial Day Weekend right. I recycled parts of the Pathfinder Mountain Ruck for today’s event and we stayed on trails for the duration.  It offered some nice elevation (at least for this area). The Thang Announcements Thicket and Pleasantville convergence on Monday (Memorial […]

Pathfinder 15 completed

Posted on

After many weeks of procrastination, today marked the day YHC would tackle the final challenge for Pathfinder 15 Forward. The dreaded coupon ruck loomed and YHC was lucky to have Chum agree to partner up for the bulk of it at Basecamp. Warm-Up/EC YHC did 2 miles solo with the 45 lb sandbag to minimize […]

the no-coupon-coupon-ruck

Posted on

YHC and Stinky Pete planned an 8-mile coupon ruck for today but after a week of sickness and general exhaustion we collectively called it off approximately 10 hours prior to go-time. As much it pained us to cancel, it was the right call. Of course that doesn’t help our PF challenge any but we’ll get […]

St. Patrick’s Day Beer Ruck

Posted on

A few weeks ago, I noticed that the Q sheet for Basecamp was open for St. Patricks Day and couldn’t resist signing up.  Beer and rucking go together like peas and carrots, so it seemed like a great day to make the trip south. I had hoped to bring a Durham contingent with me, but […]
