YHC pulled in to the AO with about 4 mins to spare to find most of the Pax on site and waiting for the hard start in the warmth of their vehicles. We circled up and said our good mornings while we waited for the rest of the Pax and a hard start. At 5:30 I called for the hard start and gave a flawless mission statement and disclaimer. After that we circled up for warmarama.

Then we set off on a mosey for The Thang. At each intersection/cut through down Brandywine Blvd we circled up and did
Copperhead squats ic
At the first intersection we did 10 of each, at the second we did 15, then 20, then 25 at the merge. It was during this round that we had our close encounter of the third kind.Luckily Ron Burgundy was star gazing and paying little attention to the Q, so we didn’t miss out on the experience. A quick pause to appreciate the unexpected event and we were back to the grind. After this round we had back up Brandywine Blvd to unstack the exercises with 20, 15, and 10 at each respective stop. YHC gave a good refresher course for the Pax on cadence and counting that even Jang-a-Lang would be proud of. Throughout this series of exercises, Ronnie B kept us entertained with mumble chatter and dance moves. I think in very brief spurts he also participated in the workout. We moseyed back to the flag and quickly circled up for a Steamer classic, the Jack Webb.

We counted off, did the pledge, had namarama, did announcements and prayer requests, and Kiwi took us out in prayer. Big thanks to Kiwi for keeping after me when I fall off the wagon for a few months. Many of you don’t see it, but he does a great job of reaching out to the guys who go missing and encourages them (often by assigning them an unwanted Q) to get back out. Just one example of the leadership in the fine men of Carterico. Thanks for allowing me to serve you today.
