The Curved Bow & Leaky Tankard: Ranger Guildhall Chat


Recommended Posts

Ladies, Gentlemen, Rangers all;

 

Allow me to welcome you once again to our humble abode in the wilderness, The Curved Bow & Leaky Tankard.

Find a place to hang your cloak, put your feet up, and relax.  We're your home away from home while out adventuring, but this be hallowed ground.  Try not to start too many tavern brawls while you stay with us.  Oh, and serve yourself... the help is on strike citing the questionable origin and dubious taste of the most recent barrel of ale.  Consume at your own peril.   ;)

While I was away last challenge I shadowed the GORUCK Heavy in DC for Memorial Day weekend. I had quite a few friends doing the Heavy/Tough/Light and am friends with 2 of the 4 Cadre. This was the second day of hot weather in DC and people were miserable. I think it was 67/72 Heavy finishers(very good). But of the 48 signed up for all three events only 9 finished. There were a decent amount that skipped the Tough so they could hydrate and I know 3 or 4 of them had done the HTL before and they said this was the worst with the onset of hot weather and no time to train for it.

 

For those of you out rucking, remember to hydrate now that summer is here!

This feels like the start to an especially good challenge, folks.  I'm loving the Week Zero vibes.  ;)

Sliding into a chair and grabbing a tankard of mead...  if the drinks are that questionable maybe we should start making our own?

Strides in and pivots around (cloak swirls impressively). Spies lots of shadowy figures in the corners...

   Dangerous? Probably most of you, in your own way

   Of bad character? Perhaps a few (not really, but it makes things seem more interesting)

   Taking the measure of this place and these people? (Not a bad idea)

 

If you're new to this site, or just a little shy, please feel very welcome to join in and post here. Anything goal-related, questions about how things work, general encouragement, silliness.

When did this appear?!

 

...and if I'm gonna be in a tavern before 5am, you bet I'm gonna be sinking a (tankard of) strong coffee.

 

Hm. Guess this means I need to make my challenge all pretty and put it out there!

Minimal booze for me until vacation in two weeks, so I agree.  I'll be running on pre-workout and ultra strong tea; sometimes together, occasionally separate.  ;)
