Hashing up the mountain this week, meeting at the play area. The American visitors were rather worried seeing Blade Runner sharpening his tool before the run, wondering what they were in for! Karin gave the rest of us cause for worry as she confidently drove through the archway without even slowing down to gauge the width of her car. That woman knows her vital statistics without even an inch to spare! As the crowd calmed down Simply Indiscreet gave the brief – and brief it was. Only one circle check, mud, slopes and spikes. The hash master reminded us all the normal rules would be resumed and in the new year’s strive for fitness all press ups and forfeits would be claimed. On – on!
Up the road, an easy start all the way to the water catchment area. Lima Bean decided the route had become much steeper during her eight year absence and decided to stay at the benches for a little respite. She knew where the beer would be served later. Across the water catchment, some on bums, other sliding or surfing down the slippery slopes. Only, after a descent there is always a hill to climb, gaining ground on the concrete slabs isn’t quite so elegantly done! Bloodsucker claimed this as virgin hash territory – could she be right?
On to Bishops, our thanks to those who have been cutting out the paths lately. There are some wonderful tunnels through the ginger. Mucky Princess was perfecting her Tarzen swinging with Karin’s help. Blasts from Blade Runner’s veuvuzla. And at last… a circle check. Red was the first to demonstrate his push up skills when caught with hands on hips. Poor No Brakes was so disappointed to have missed the show, Red did it again. Thanks!
At the pig sty the visitors posed for their pics but wondered how we had missed the famous dew pond. The on-on for some was a run to the top of the mountain and an encounter with the crocodile. The rest of the hashers were more tempted by the beer!
Once the runners had made their way back to the park, hash business began! Blade runner modelled the new T shirt, Dr Livingstone and I Presume were expected to burn their boots but must have been distracted by their packing. On – on to the both of you.
Soup warmed, beer cooled and tents erected! Yes, some hardy hashers were spending the evening up the mountain.
Thanks simply Indiscreet for taking us round the mountain, in a different way!
