A Couple o' Bricks Shy of a Full Load

A massive crowd of 36 assembled under a star-filled sky at Dreher High School. The shovel flag was planted, Tajh took the Q and led the pax on a brick-filled jaunt through the gloom, pausing only to give Major BS an opportunity to be a wanker. #ironsharpensiron

Ball of Man: Tajh led ending prayer


  • Great group this morning! Big numbers and spirited pax.
  • Another Lowe’s run is necessary — largest crowd ever to use cinder blocks and we were two short
  • Solid Q by Tajh. However, his decision to call on Major BS for Airborne Flutters not once but TWICE leaves doubts about his sanity. #notfitforcommand I will put Columbia up against anybody in a flutter kick contest. 164 this morning means we’ll be feeling it tomorrow.
  • Comments that Major BS needed some kind of therapy were met with delight by Dr. Phil. #offeredhisservices
  • Welcome back Jordache! Good to have our denim-clad War Baby back with us, and this time in appropriate attire.
  • Kotters to Tugger, back from the merchant seaways! #theweathersbetterincolumbia
  • Perennial War Daddy Sled has done amazing EH work. T-claps to you, brother!
  • Congratulations on 2nd posts today from Moon River, Hammy, Jordache — maybe a couple more. You come once  for curiosity, you come back because you realize what you’ve got your hands on. The 2nd F will keep you around.
  • Chaser has the Q Saturday. #Virgin. This one should be special and one you remember for a long time. Let’s work hard to EH those guys on the fence.
  •  Let’s also make a big effort to hit the Thicket in a big way on Saturday. April misses you.
  • Finally, Mission wants to look into a GORUCK Challenge in Columbia. We will be discussing this insanity in coming weeks, perhaps over eggs and coffee at the Thicket.
