The Island | Ranger Mini Challenge FINISHED


Hammlin

Recommended Posts

i feel like we're corrupting this thread

We totally are. Thankfully the others are too polite :D

 

I must say East and West teams are covering a lot of ground on this island.

About time we scouted it in its entirety, can't be doing the same thing every challenge. Come to think of it, it would be smarter to go scouting after rescuing Redbeard, instead of returning south and then scouting again. Oh well, guess we needed the break after those imps!

ShadowLiion.  Once again I can't get to Google docs.  I managed 1.3 mile walk yesterday... sorry its not much... can you add that for me?

 

Also if you want to substitute one of these really active mover type rangers for me, I'm totally cool with that.  I'll continue to meander along, but in this heat running and walking is sidelined for air conditioning in the dojo. 

 

I still haven't managed to motivate myself to doing the running thing before dawn.  I'm working on it... I just am so not the morning person.

Hey Beaucastle, I am not much of a morning person either and I am stuck in the Florida heat in the afternoons. Have you considered late night running? I feel that it is a good mix of starting off warm enough that you are miserable warming up, and then cool enough by the end that you aren't bathing in your own sweat from working out and fighting the heat.  Just something I have found that works for me, but the only negative thing I have found is that I postpone dinner until after my run late at night and am absolutely starving.

Ran 3.58 miles this morning. Add that on top of FortBacon's distance and our team has made it over 50 miles. Sweet!!

Ok apparently, I've been carrying my boat all this way too (must be a very light kayak or something).   Turned out good because I came across a sizable inlet... it would been much further to go around by land, but I rowed the 1.6 miles instead.

 

Was going to get out and run ahead from this point, but I fell asleep in the boat and drifted away from shore.    Had to row back 1k.

In Florida too....  My running track is not lit well.  Its along a fairly deserted stretch of highway.  Should anything happen... I'm isolated.    These are not great conditions for a female alone.... even with the dogs I'm not much better.  None of them weigh more than 26 lbs... and would be more apt to run out into traffic than anything else.

Sandylion we still have a slot open.

Sorry RMKWilson, I didn't see this reply! Thanks for the invite, but now your team is full and I just put myself on another team with an empty slot.

Thanks anyway!

I recommend collapsible batons. Just the SCHICCCK they make when you whip 'em open is a deterrent.

 

And as an added bonus, you can swat mosquitoes with them. :)

Hey everyone!

 

I'm going to be walking about 5 km today (had a grocery store run before work) but my ankles being a bit persnickety. I just added myself to an empty group for the westies. Hopefully I'll be up and running in no time (literally, I would like to go for a run this weekend) but we shall see!

From my bag of holding I pull out my pony costume, I think like a pony, act like a pony and sidle up to the pony that looks the slowest.

I will get to the map as soon as I have my challenge spreadsheet done...I am on a deadline!

 

Ponies might be useful for getting through the mountains. Just sayin'. Maybe we have some Ranger mages around who could  tame them down a little.

I know, I know. With so many paleo types around, there's not much red meat, except for those stringy, smelly, gamey-tasting imps...but, dang we're rangers!

 

Snares, bow and arrows, plenty of small game. Save the ponies!

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity:

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

~T. E. Lawrence

 

When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands,

flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.
