2018 GRT Family Reunion Austin, Texas

Hey y’all,

The GRT Family Reunion is my favorite GORUCK event. This years Reunion was unlike any other before, with 10 teams competing against each other all over Austin. GRT’s from across the USA came to see what Texas hospitality is all about. The Lone Star GRT’s represented their state well with the Central Texas Rucking Club helping us navigate through each stage of the event.

We kicked off the weekend with a meet and greet at Zilker Brewery with lot’s of hugs and beer. I was told we finished out the evening at The Liberty Bar  I see pics of us there so it must have happened.

Early Saturday morning we started the “Tight” –  a cross between a Light and a Tough. With Cadres Mocha, Mickey, and Jason ensuring we had no down time with hours and hours of overhead squats. ENDEX was in a spacious back yard and a “down home” BBQ. Brisket, green beans, mac & cheese, sausage, and of course beer. After chow and rehydration we had the first ever Cadre Roast. I have not laughed so much in a long time. The Cadre Roast may or may not be an annual event and can only be seen in person at the event.

If you want to know more about the GRT Family Reunion join us next year. You will not regret it. Monster is the best part of GRHQ and people are the best part of GORUCK.  Thank you GRT’s we are honored to have such an awesome family.
