YHC is a promotional Genius. No one said it could be done, but LawDog got Southsiders to break away from there comfort zones and visit the mothaship and finally encouraged @Floppy to quit whining about his pickle toe injury from January and get back out to the gloom.
YHC had planned on educating the pax about the history of the Kodiak through the power of repeating some of the Kodiak Classics like Route 66 (scratch that too many crazy parents dropping of kids), metal mountain work and quarter pounders (scratch that the kids are using the football stadium), so forget the plan and just improvise.
Mosey to the front of the school for imperial walkers and weed pickers. Enough of that. Mosey over to the middle school for a circus Maximus escalator. 5 merkins at the lightpole, run around the buss parking lot stopping at each light pole adding 5 merkins to the count. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30. Which equals 105 merkins.  Next mosey to the front of the school for some Lt. Dan’s since @Lt. Dan was present only to get his gloves back from YHC since Your YHC told him that was the only way he would get them back. After about 5 lunges and 20 squats @Manning finally admitted that he never has done a proper squat so enough of that and mosey back to the bus area. Bear crawl from one curb to the next.  
Pax keep yapping and complaining so YHC took them to the back grass field for some…crap where did all those class room trailers come from. Ok so on the fly modify to Sprints and Burpees. Since @Jack Bauer was there, YHC gave the option to modify burpees to Merkins + Jump squats. Sprint to the other side for 5 burpees, sprint back for 5 burpees…that’s right mumble chatter getting less and less….sprint back for 5 burpees….no more mumble chatter, so we sprint back to finish with 5 burpees.
Back to a second round of circus Maximus this time with jumping squats and running backwards. That’s 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 jumping squats at each light pole. Watch out for the truck.
Mosey around the back of the school to the front. Pax were complaining about not having any partner work, so YHC had them do partner rows. Clearly, the southsiders have never done this before because YHC noticed several pax just doing big boys while holding hands, let’s just say that results in a sniffing position that does no one any good. Get the butts off the ground men. TinFoil and CP particularly liked the smell of their partners.
Mosey to the high school for some American Hammmers. Sprint to the end of the parking lot. Box Cutters then form two lines for an Indian run back to the flag.

Ended with the Name-o-Rama and COT.

Naked Man Moleskins:

YHC was honored by the humiliation BabyFace felt when Southsiders kept rolling in.  

Manning really can’t do a squat.

Good to see Dory, Legionnaire, Misty, Harp, BabyFace, Hombre, Manning, LawDog, Banjo, and Floppy at the Kodiak again. Too bad Woody, Cricket, The Mole, Homeboy, Bloodhound, and Buckeye weren’t there. It would have been the first time all Redwood OGS were together since the great migration of 19 occurred.

Good to see Chevy representing Colesseum, Tinfoil from Arena, Jack Bauer and Driftwood from the Clinic, CP, Lt Dan and The Count from Radio Silence, Copper representing the Slab.

So YHC also visited the Lions Den, but the lions den proves once again that they like to keep things Bridgemill.

Seriously, you don;t know a man until you partner row him.

YHC has been in a bit of a rut. Still posting over the last year, but rarely ventured out of my routine and could easily find an excuse not to post. Getting out and taking on this Tour de Cherokee was a great way to get back to accelerating. I challenge every Pax to visit a random AO once or twice a month just to shake things up a little bit.

I did invite Bloodhound to bring his whistle. So you can all thank him for declining my invite.
