Moleskin – FROZEN string of pearls would be more accurate. The Q decided early on that being in wet grass while freezing rain fell would not be a good idea. Pax would probably say that numerous occurrences of on your face or on your six on a wet road during the same conditions was also not a good idea either, BUT DID YOU DIE? YHC did modify as he initiated the Bear Crawl, Crab Walk follow me portion; hands were already uncomfortable and we were mere minutes into the BC, nope, not happening. The Pax later admitted had the Q continued to execute the Bear Crawl, they were simply going to “follow him” by walking. During the arm circles the Pax were encouraged to remove their headgear so as to allow some of the heat to escape. It was at this time, they realized the pain of holding something as small as their headgear with their arms straight to the front. Lots of mumble chatter as the men embraced the weather and at times each other. It took dedication to getting better to beat the fartsack and fight the FOO this morning. STRONG work by all of the men present.
