The Thang: Nine Times Routine: ‘Nine Times’ is an unincorporated community in Pickens County SC. The community was so named on account of the nine water crossings of a path over a nearby creek.

Pledge and COT
Devo: “Humility is gained through hidden service.” … “Self Rightous service is highly concerned with results. It eagerly wants to see if the person served will reciprocate in kind. It becomes bitter where results fall below expectations. True service is free from the need to calculate results. It delights only in the service. It can serve enemies as freely as friends.” ~ ‘Celebration of Discipline’ by Richard Foster. Reference: Matt. 20:26
Moleskin: This was a simple rinse & repeat routine. Seemed simple enough but the repetition of bear crawls + burpees with added humidity made the Thang very effective. Everyone pushed hard with exception of Major Dad who briefly exceused himself for another type of push. YHC entertained the troops with the story of how the SC state flag came to have its color, palmetto tree & cresent.
