Macho-Man is a family man, Finding time for training is a challenge, but like all Macho-Men, Macho-Man loves a good challenge. He also shamelessly uses his offspring as a weight stack and trainer / motivator in his training routine.

We held our patrol group's first training march on 12.12.2017. The purpose of this training march was to try operating as a group, as well as to test the base levels of the group and the equipment. The mission was a light 15 km evening stroll that took us from Varusteleka - the top of Malminkartano - Paloheinä - the top of Paloheinä - Varusteleka.
