About: This march is originally the idea of medically retired Marine Capt.

O'Malley's march to San Francisco, CA. What: A 22km (13.6 mile) VETERAN's hike/pub crawl with 22kg on our backs (for whoever enjoys the weight, it's not required)…in silkies.  Why:  To get our veterans together, to put weight on our backs and feel nostalgic, to laugh, to hydrate, to party, and remind us all that our camaraderie and brotherhood will never die. #notforpussies  When: Meet @ 0900 on May 28th, 2016 - AT&T PARK GIANTS STADIUM IN FRONT OF WILLIE MAYS STATUE OR THE BEER PLACE CALLED "PUBLIC HOUSE" Where: @1000 BEGIN - AT&T Park, 24 Willie Mays, San Francisco, CA 94107 END -Ocean Beach, 1000 Great Highway, San Francisco, CA 94107 Time and Routes 0900 - AT&T Park (Giants Stadium) 1030 - TBA 1200 - TBA 1300 - TBA 1400 - TBA 1530 - TBA 1730 - TBA 1830 - TBA 1930 - Ocean Beach (across Beach Chalet Brewery & Restaurant) PARKING AVAILABLE AT _________________________ After Party at Ocean Beach   CIVILIANS/SUPPORTERS: Please feel free to meet us at the for the initial festivities and also advance to the locations if you'd like to receive your veterans with cheers, hugs, kisses, photos, videos, beer, shots, screaming, yelling, and excessive PDA.

CIVILIANS - We appreciate all the love and support and look forward to seeing you guys at our bar stops and at the final party. This is a no shit serious hump for over 8 hours with 22 kilos on our backs, at speed, in some serious temperatures. This is a time for us as veterans to re-live the times we once had, bond, get fucked up, and laugh at all the bullshit we used to deal with...

No weapons, weapon accessories, magazines, ammo, flash bangs, grenades, nuclear devices or other illegal arms (nunchucks and/or a bo staff are acceptable) - LEAVE IT AT HOME...and I could give two fucks about "open-carry", if I see any moron with a rifle I will personally kick you in the nuts. This will be strictly enforced. PLEASE: No drinking open containers in public! No conversations about politics with strangers! No engaging anyone who makes negative comments to us! If there are any PTSD or emotional episodes everyone must rally to control the situation, help our bro, and protect the group from an early night! No getting so drunk that you lose your shit (just be cool bro)! HOWEVER: Do slam your drinks quickly at the bars. Do have your cash ready. Do "check-in" on Facebook as we progress through the hike. (Bring a solar charger because it's going to be impossible to charge while we're hiking or if you're lucky to find an outlet). Do FLIRT with girls and invite them to party at LITTLE 5 POINTS later that night. Do whatever it takes to help a bro outDo mumble the words "I love you" to a bunch of dudes you've never met. Do bring CASH for drinks to help expedite each stop. Recommendations: To make 22kg, stuff 5 gallons of water and the rest of the shit that you want in your pack. For machine gunners - Make something that mimics the weight of a 240 golf on your back and we'll pass it around. Guidons will look great. Who's got the American flag? Marine Corps flag? Navy flag? Anybody with a moto voice remember cadences? VERY IMPORTANT!!!
