3.13.18 Carpenter BackBlast: Field Trip to the Zoo

Having been given the opportunity to Q the 2dn WO at our new AO, I wanted to show the PAX all that this gorgeous park had to offer. I had a meinke but wanted to do some further recon to lock it down. So a solo picnic with my SpiderMan lunch box was exactly what I needed.

Sadly, while munching on baby carrots I saw a sign stating the Park was reseeding an area of grass that I was planning to use during my Q. Oh well. Plan B was activated and I knew then we would be taking a field trip to the Zoo.

Conditions: 29* with a slight easterly wind.

Gearlander: Black NB Minimus kicks, no see em thin SmartWool socks, light blue LuLu shorts, black Vans tank top, Buff ascot, F3Louisville HooRag and MudGear Tac hat

Disclaimer was given as what I thought was our final arrival of the day pulled up. It was Nickelback. Let’s take a quick step back.

Back on June 20th during a Jordy led WO Nickelback stepped on a root during a mosey and badly rolled his ankle. This injury sidelined NB for a long time and was our first of several injuries. By the way by rolled I mean destroyed and I think he has a robot leg now. Not surprisingly when Nickelback made his return recently everyone who knew him was ecstatic for his return. To be clear, most of us had posted with NB maybe 6-10 times. We all didn’t know each other that well but it doesn’t matter. Whether you have posted once of a hundred times you are part of something bigger than yourself and seeing NB come back to cheers and open arms make me proud to be a part of this group.

Mosey to parklot to right of starting point.

Thanks to the Sky-Q primarily for this group of HIMs and the impact you have all made on my life. Time to go out and crush the day.

YHC, Zartan
