Bringing Some Landfill to Wilderness Road

Northeast Tennessee Kingsport Wilderness Road (Dobyns-Bennett)

6 PAX showed on a gorgeous brisk morning with no wind for my second Q, inspired by the beatdown delivered at Chattanooga’s Landfill AO by Prosciutto, while I was vacating last weekend. All IC exercises ended w/ shouting “Rob” instead of “Halt” to cheer on our buddy Rob (aka ENO from Arrowhead) who ran the Disney half marathon this morning from 6:30-10ish. (He did finish and thanks us for our support.)


Intro 10-Down Concept (10D)
 – Q Calls a PAX Out (e.g. “Yukon 10 Down”).
 – That PAX (e.g. Yukon) counts down from 10 as it pleases him.
 – All PAX rest until that PAX (e.g. Yukon) finished count down.
 – Goal is not to rest other than during 10 Downs.

3 months ago (pre F3 and some other self-discovery), I would have never gone to some park to workout with a bunch of strangers at 7AM on a Saturday while I was on vacation in a strange city. Last week I did, and it was a blast. I encourage all to look up the AO when travelling and post. You’ll feel right at home. Li’l Debbie added that it’s an extra hoot to call ahead and Q as a visitor. I’ll try that next time.
