The Thang: Ruck the streets of downtown Canton. Met at R & M Hoagie (I think the other side would be safer re morning traffic speeds). Rucked down main street back around by courthouse, down past barber shop, down hill toward river, took a left and headed by the mills, picked up 3 sandbags, mumblechatter..., dropped sandbags off at the end of straight away, back up E Marietta, dodge the popo rendezvous so left on Elizabeth, left on Archer, rt on Academy... mumblechatter regarding viability of Panera, zig zag across center of town finally into Church st, and little jaunt around courthouse, back out onto north and down to locksmith in the E Main curve, then double back to vehicles.
COT: Name-a-rama for 3 (showthing the FNG how it's done), Chops 6th man, FNG naming... he's Dixie Chicks EH & known by other PAX thru LAX. Chose Bambi for his interest in hunting (Chops proposed Buckmaster), prayers and thanks.
Naked Man Moleskin: Good to get to downtown. It needs to be an AO. Traffic is zipping thru there in the mornings, so don't be fooled. Great to have a rucker FNG!
