Bluto’s Homecoming Ruck (The Oasis) – 2/10/18
Pax: Dauber, Ticket, Gap, Mercy, Modell, Mother Rucker & Bluto
The Thang: the goal of this ruck was to get in 3 miles of rucking goodness in about 15 minutes. I didn’t want this to be a lame walk in the park so I asked Mother Rucker to bring some sandbags. So, we added 3 coupons weighing 40, 60 & 80lbs respectively. Adding coupons to a ruck in West Toledo wasn’t the best idea as all the snow from the previous day had created some rough terrain. Luckily the 7 of us manned up and humped those coupons down Grantwood and back around to Castlewood. We got to see Bluto’s childhood home, the house where the first girl he kiss lived, and the house where one of Bluto’s best moments of his 8th year of life happened. We then turned down Roanoke and proceeded down Sylvania Ave. we saw suck historical West Toledo landmarks as the former Nettys, Cosmic Creations Comic shop, Kids Again Collectibles, CD underground, Red Wells and Hollywood Dream Factory. These were all places that Bluto frequented as a kid that are all gone now. We then took a left down Tremainsville and trekked through knee high snow in some parts. We saw Black Diamond, where Bluto worked for 4 years, and then proceeded back to the AO for Gap’s beatdown.
We finished with Namearama, Counterama and a quick COT.
Great job everyone pushing through these less than ideal conditions and hats off to Mercy who posted for his first ever ruck!
