The Q:

Fort Imagination



Like rucking? Not getting enough distance in the one hour Tuesday Rucks? Then come to the Fortress for our Saturday 2 HOUR Ruck. Cover more distance. Carry heavy stuff longer. Lead a group of men through greater challenges.

    The Ruck:

    10 PAX headed off in a light snow with a shovel flag, Betty, and the newly assembled sand tubes. The first leg of the ruck took us to Front street, toward “The Wall” where we rucked down the ramp and continued along the river to Hood Park. Rucking up the hill from Hood Park we continued through downtown and back to “The Fortress.” Along the first leg we debated briefly naming the sand tubes before quickly deciding on Charlotte…the name with which she was branded. At this time she was referred to also as “Good” Charlotte, a name which was not repeated at 6:50.

    Once back at “The Fortress” Stark stepped out of the ruck line and set up for the regularly scheduled Saturday beat down. We also picked up Flo in the parking lot for much needed reinforcement. Stark rejoined our ranks on the North end of the park. We exited the park onto East Boundary and headed East for 20 minutes prior to heading back to the AO. With snow continuing to fall and by then accumulating we arrived back at “The Fortress” where the flag was planted in the large grassy island in the middle of the parking area. Betty was left standing tall and Charlotte was laid to rest with the heavy, wet snow.

    The Ruck ended with count-o-Rama, name-o-Rama and circle of trust. Prayer intentions were offered for: Christmas holidays my he real reason we celebrate, Time off to spend with family and friends, Safe traveling, for those whom the holidays are a challenging time, remembering to move the elf on the shelf, and for the great Ruck/Beat down Weather. The prayer was led by Bambi.
