  • What I suspect may be a record 9 Pax, including Whirly down range from Winston-Salem, made an appearance for YHC’s first ever posting (and Q) at DuckDuckGoose on a beautiful Independence Day morning. However, the attendance was more likely due to SpaceMonkey’s impending induction into the HR Hall of Fame and the resulting presence of the freshly tattooed and always spoiled Lady Glittersparkle (LG).

    Completely unfamiliar with the AO, YHC hesitantly took off in the general direction of the lake intent upon leading the Pax in a couple of “running with style” laps and received the VERY helpful advice: “When you get to the water, turn right!” Doing so brought us to what I could only assume was the infamous Bear Crawl Bridge where we of course dropped to all fours and made our way across. It was about that time that YHC remembered LG had been left behind, but fortunately the rest of the Pax were not so absentminded and she was already being retrieved so that she could take her rightful spot at the front of our Indian run around the lake. Upon successfully navigating Bear Crawl Bridge, the plan was to stop at each of the two docks to perform 17 Derkins and 76 Air Squats as a group before continuing the circuit. After the successful completion of two iterations, YHC had the (not so) great idea to flip flop that and perform 17 Air Squats and 76 Derkins at the next dock. Part way through that set of Derkins, I think everyone was wishing the country was born at least 25 years earlier! YHC quickly flip flopped back for the last dock and then we headed back to the flags for a little Mary
