Rangers Gonna Pirate Mini Challenge

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Rangers of the Caribbean :)

Ahoy matey's! Are you ready to set sail for some adventure? Pirates are basically Rangers of the high seas, so it seems it should be an easy transition.

 

This challenge we'll be traveling around the world, possibly getting into some trouble, and defending the seas against any threats.  Each week we'll be going to a different classic Pirate location and face whatever challenges we find there.

 

-----------------------------

 

Week Zero we have just arrived at Port Royal, getting all of the necessary supplies before we ship out! What are you all doing to prepare for the upcoming challenge? Let us all know here!

-----------------------------

 

Week 1

 

This week we set sail in search of treasure from the safety of Port Royal and make our way to Isla de Muerta!  But beware... cursed skeletons of past treasure seekers haunt these caves! They are undying and require constant fighting, dodging, and running to escape before you snatch the treasure and get out.  This requires endurance - so add an endurance workout (ie HIIT, Tabita, sprints, EMOM, etc) to your week this week in order to successfully snatch this treasure! You have until the end of the day Sunday.

-----------------------------

 

Week 2

 

After successfully fighting the never-ending onslaught of skeletons and counting all your new gold, you make your way to the beautiful Isla de Pelegostos to relax and enjoy the pristine beaches in solitude. As you begin to relax with some of your newly purchased very expensive rum from Tortuga, you are overtaken by cannibals! You left your weapons on the boat, so you'll have to fight them off hand to hand! This week, add a dexterity based fighting move to your workout (ie a quick online workout of kickboxing, tai chi, sit up punches, warrior yoga sequence, etc).  You have until the end of the day Tuesday.

-----------------------------

 

Week 3

 

You've escaped the cannibals and made it to your ship.  Since this island did not work out well for you, you're in search of another beautiful Caribbean island on which to enjoy your newly acquired rum in peace.  Suddenly you begin to feel unexpected turbulence in the water, and a giant tentacle springs from the surface and slams down close enough to your ship to rock it nearly on it's side.  You are able to right the ship, but this is just the beginning.  The owner of the tentacle rises up, and you have a Kraken to deal with! Use your upper body strength to steer the ship around this giant beast and keep it from capsizing! To do so, add an extra upper body set to your workouts this week (anything from rows, presses, push ups, pull ups, etc count.  Scaling for your ability level is encouraged).

You promise?

 

I'm still figuring out if I'll post a challenge this round at all. Searching for motivation, for THE SPARK recent events in my life managed to snuff out. 

 

IF I'll post one, I'll aim for more Viking'ish theme, but as Vikings were just northern pirates, I should fit here :D And if I decide not to challenge, I might at least wander here for inspiration.

That is one of the bestest scenes in movie EVER!!!

 

You know one of those "spat-out-my-drink-in-the-cinema"-kind of scene!

 

But i don't like rum, except when it's infused in beer...

You can barter with it......just sayin.   I have a friend that lives in a very small (very very) town, and the stores are empty.  She had to barter for milk for her grandbaby.

This is Belgium. I cannot grasp the idea of a shortage of beer over here. It feels like dividing by zero...

... I'm not excited, you're excited!

My preparation mostly consists of collecting recipes and necessary ingredients, putting together an exercise routine and making a loose daily schedule so I don't fall off the bandwagon simply due to forgetting.

i'm mostly just planning this week's grocery-day, trying to keep the list short and hoping that online-ordering will be available on Saturday to minimize actual store time.

If we have a shortage of beer in Belgium, will the Matrix error-handling routine kick us out of this very, very buggy subroutine?

You know, I really like milk, but I'm not sure I'd give up a grandchild for some...

You're not alone! In England the government has required all non-essential shops to close. Off-licences (liquor stores) have been designated 'essential'.

well, lets see.  Week number one is supplies right?

 

well I guess, I'll have to "work for them" as I got some pretty epic long hours of Work all during this zero week.

 

... so we'll say there are long, long hours of sailing to get there

and THEN and only then maybe I'll get my chance to spend some leisure time at a desert isle (called "home"). maybe.  if various epic adventures do NOT then  occur. (and being a pirate tale I'm sure it will.  drats. how depressing!)

Here it’s liquor & pot shops.  They tried to close them, and everyone ran to the damn shops, to get their stash before they closed.  So they deemed them essential, so people would maybe stay home more. 
 

My prep has been getting ready to batten the hatches.   We don’t want to go out until absolutely necessary, so I did my hunting (everyone is out of everything) and gathering (getting what I could in he face of the shortage of everything). We are as ready as we can be.

We are pretty well stocked up except for fresh produce. We have some frozen stuff but the fresh just goes off so quickly unless it’s stuff like potatoes, carrots and onions. Definitely makes for some creative meal planning? 
 

It’s been about a week since our last supply run so we’ll probably need to do something later this week. 
 

Got the garden planted 2 weeks ago so should start getting some baby kale & lettuce in a couple weeks....
