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 […]

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 […]
