Zombie Grateful Dead Walk – Zombie Walk back to the playground
The Grateful Dead: Basically a plank-o-rama with some stupidity mixed in. 5 Merkins. Rotate 360° in place to the left. Left arm up, right arm up, etc. 5 Werkins. Rotate 360° in place to the right. Left arm up, right arm up. 5 Diamond Merkins. From plank, lift left arm and leg up, then quickly swap to right arm and leg up. Do this back and forth as quick as you can, making sure to get full extension. Now you look like a Dancing Bear!
The THANG: Roll Away The Dew / Fire on the Mountain / Dancing Bear Crawl
Roll Away the Dew: In three lines the PAX lined up in plank pose while the last member leap frogged over until he reached the end of the hurdles to drop to the ground and rolled in the grass (roll away the dew) before resuming plank. Continued across the grass to the sidewalk.
Fire on the Mountain: PAX then ran up to the top of the mountain behind the stage to douse the fire on the mountain with the sweat of 30 muscle ups. PAX returned to the sidewalk.
Dancing Bear Crawl: PAX Bear Crawled back across the grass to repeat Roll Away the Dew
Rinsed and repeated 3.5 times
Caesar picked “that cartoon one” Marge-Homer
Folsom lead us in a little country frog comes to the big city: Crunchy Frogs

Grateful dead (or grateful ghost) present in many cultures throughout the world. The most common story involves a traveler who encounters a corpse of someone who never received a proper burial, typically stemming from an unpaid debt. The Grateful dead spirit may take many different physical forms including that of a guardian angel, animal or fellow traveler. The traveler’s encounter with the deceased comes near the end of the traveler’s journey. The traveler then either pays off the dead person’s debt or pays for burial. The traveler is later rewarded or has their life saved by a person or animal who is actually the soul of the dead person; the grateful dead is a form of the donor.
Brazilian reiterated what Trade Mark shared at his Q of the District Murph about treating everyone we meet in daily life as a potential FNG and to be the traveler form the fable as you never know how your good deeds will be unexpectedly repaid.
•Plague launching The Pit on July 20th, PAX needs to EH Sad Clowns from the Papillion area
•Prayers for family and friends of Khakis and Folsom
•Prayers for Lightyear and his family as they re-locate to Alabama this weekend.
Brazilian closed us out in prayer
Tater Tot lead a great Freed to Lead discussion afterwards. The PAX discussed the transition from Sad Clown to leader and all that it entails. Thanks for the coffee Tater Tot and make sure the M has a special birthday.
