YHC had the Q today and had everyone work. Not sure what the PAX were thinking in terms of this is going to just be a ruck and some stairs. Well it turned out to be a burner!

Q led the PAX away from the flag and dealt out the first punishment of Howling Monkeys!  YHC instructed everyone to  grab their ankles in a Monkey Humper fashion. WTF? YHC instructed  everyone that this is going to be a Ring Of Fire event.  YHC does 10 Monkey Humpers followed by the next person and so on until the circle in complete. This is going to burn!  Each PAX was asked to name a favorite Band for Round 1, favorite song for Round 2, and a movie that they can quote almost entirely  for Round 3 . YHC favorite band is RUSH, a favorite song Natural Science, and a movie that can be quoted almost in its entirely – Don’t Judge – The Birdcage!  Soon enough during  Round 1 the grumbling and moaning began and the PAX wanted it to stop! With a big grin on my face – Its just beginning. Hence the name Howling Monkeys! All PAX were moaning and groaning!

What’s next! Q decided to find the next place to deal the pain of gainz! Q had PAX walk from a light post to another light post while holding the rucksack military style. Once PAX got to the the next light post Q instructed PAX to do 10 copperhead squats. Rinse and repeat 3 times.

Q then led PAX to some stairs up and down three times and found some a great spot to do 50 ankle raises on a curb. Then we circled up and Q had each member of the PAX deal out some pain with a 10 count. Q started with Bench Presses. Once this complete off to the next punishment which was heading back to the flag!

Q yelled out to the PAX  to line up for an Indian Walk back to the flag!  We made it back with 2 minutes to spare and Q finished with 20 copperhead merkins with rucksacks still on. PHEW WE MADE IT!

During COT we prayed for safe travels for Dr. Tron’s trip to Poland and Gut Check’s family situation to calm down.

HIMS – thank you for letting me lead you guys in the gloom this morning!  Enjoy this Father’s Day weekend with family!
