Florence ruined YHC’s trip to the county seat back in September, so I took another day. I believe it is the coldest day of the year and I said that last Thursday. YHC arrived way early but needed to drive around the grounds and make sure google street maps were correct. I settled into a parking space under warm red and green glow of the Beaufort Christmas tree. Traveling to Beaufort is always like traveling back in time. A time when they had no internet because I couldn’t pick up a signal to check anything out. It’s ghost town at 5:10 except for old people walking their dog. I guess that is where all Respect brothers go to live out there days.
The PAX began to gather around the 5:25 mark. It is good to get to some different AO’s and meet some new people. Greco not really understanding cold showed up in shorts and was enjoying a cup of coffee. You get a different vibe when you cross the bridge. The count down began and a dark shadowy figure emerged, the legendary Boss Tweed. I have heard stories and seen photos and they all seemed to be true. With a hard swallow and butterflies in my stomach YHC gave the 3 F’s, Mission statement and disclaimer. Let’s mosey.
We headed up Craven street to the church on right and began to circle up when we realized we lost RonRico. He did mention earlier about a possible FNG and he showed. Matiah, the smooth suave talker from Serbia. I bet this guy could read the phone book and have ladies swooning in no time. We finally circled up for SSH’sx20, when someone else showed up late. Man these are some laid back dudes but you still get to do 5 burpees. Finish up with Sun Godsx10 each way and Windmillsx15. Mosey to the intersection by Social Services and the Courthouse for Cotton Pickersx10, Hillbilliesx10 and the basic stretch. A quick mosey to the SS parking lot.
One round of Apple Turnover. The PAX immediately began complaining that it is not a real exercise. I’m sure if they had internet in Beaufort they would have checked it on the lexicon. Mosey to the main intersection by Ann st UMC. Yes, YHC started going the wrong way but corrected himself quickly. 5 burpees OYO. It was then the legend spoke and was telling YHC about his rib or something. I felt it best to just ignore all mumble chatter. Head West to the next intersection for Alternating Shoulder Taps x 20 and LBC;s IC x20, mosey back to our beginning intersection. 5 burpees OYO and go North to the next intersection Hand Release Merkinsx20 and WW1’s x20. Back to the starting point 5 burpees OYO. The PAX sensed a theme at this point. Head East to the intersection for Mountain Climbers x20IC and Mike Tyson’s x 20. The PAX was under the impression that Mike Tyson does them a little different but it’s my Q. Back to the starting point 5 burpees OYO and go South not quite to the intersection but far enough. Her we would do all the exercises from the previous intersections x 20 AST, LBC, HRM, WW1’s, Mtn Clber and Mike, tattoo on my eye, Tysons. Back to the starting point 5 burpees OYO.
Mosey back to SS parking lot. The PAX knew what was coming Apple Turnover right. No, not right. Lt. Dan down the lot. Now it was time for an Apple Turnover coming back.
Mosey to the courthouse steps. It was the building next door that a young news photog would have his first meeting with the legendary Boss Tweed. I believe he still rules Beaufort like he ruled the board back in the day. Step ups x20, Earkins x 20, Rinse and repeat. Mosey back to our main intersection. Boss Tweed mentioned how cold the ground was. YHC trying to fit in mentioned you could do them by the sewer, that marked the middle of the intersection. The Boss said that is where we put people from Morehead. A quick mosey back down craven street to the main drag.
YHV introduced the PAX to the Big Sexy. 15 pickle pounders IC, Greco seemed to be the most excited about these. It seems their is some trouble at home at this is the only time he has gotten to use the motion, 15 Boss Tweed next to honor the legend and finish up with 15 monkey humpers IC.
Mosey back to the flag for the American Hammer x25. HARD STOP.
Naming of the FNG was difficult. He had such a thick accent that no one could understand that you would think he was from Down East. Since he was from Serbia we thought about who was from that country. He is now Wally.
Prayers for Lassies, brother, Dog Town brought up a kid from East who is recovering from a car accident and Holiday’s M. YHC took us out.
It might take an extra 10 minutes, not 30 like YHC planned to get to a different AO but do it. There are a lot guys you haven’t met that you should, Thanks Wifi for the invite and I hope to be back again.
