STARTEX – WOODSTOCK CITY CHURCH 2100 4/21/2021
Map posted to woodstockrucks slack channel and strava during day.
We have the piggies, follow the blue trail if you want to find them. -The Local Woodstock Coyotes.
We set off down to JJ Biello Park and quickly made the cut through to the intersection of Mill Creek, Rubes Creek, and Little River. Crossed over the river (had our first coyote sighting) and fond our first sign. “End of Trail” could this be the blue trail that we needed. Followed the trail briefly and noticed some blazes marking that we are on the blue trail. As we came to the trail head we found out second note.
“We have the high ground – Coyotes” (bear craw to the lights.)
After a ~80 yar ruck on bear crawl, we found the 3 piggies. We had a 50lb, 40lb, and 20lb pig and our third note.
“The piggies must be carried to safety, as a warm up complete the following. 100 reps of the following Ruck on Merkins, 20lb OH Press, 40lb Cleans, 60lb bent over rows.”
As we shot to the tree line after seeing the red trail head in the distance according to the map, we decided that way would be best. As we approached the red trail trail head, we found our fourth note. “We are in the woods on the blue trail following your scent Stay off the red trail” along with another set of PT to be performed. 50 Ruck on Burpees, 100 20lb over the shoulder tosses, 100 40lb curls, 100 50lb squats.
After knocking those out, we saw the trailhead for the yellow trail just across the field and headed off. Once on the trail we followed it until we got back to the blue trail and mad a quick dash to the river to cross out of the coyotes territory. Upon arrival to the river, we found the last note. “Piggies can not cross the water at the same time.” Being out smarted by 8Bit, trying to have one person carry across while the next waited, we figured it would be best and required to form an assembly line to move the pigs across the river. Once we completed that task, we made a break for the safety check point and dropped the piggies off for some well deserved rest. We then carried on to get a few more miles in and make sure the coyotes were not terrorizing the patrons at the outlets. Once the area was cleared, we headed back to the cars for the COT followed by WaHo where bacon was consumed.
weather 45* and clear.
