The crew met at the Two Boats Sports field, many are put off when they see the hash at the bottom of the mountain but as some say ‘you have gain ground to lose it’. No Idea could only remember to warn people about fast and bold rats so Old Golly Wobbler helped out with the extensive hazard list.
The ‘on-on’ as predicted was ‘up-up’. The little people seemed to be waiting behind for some reason. As the hashers began counting the ramps, the little people zoomed past in a car to catch up at a later point. For some reason the hare had decided she was also a minor and hitched a lift!
Daddy Dough Balls moaned a plenty, Boy Racer raced ahead and the rest walked and talked. Before reaching the Madagascar ramp, shouts of ‘on-on’ were heard ricocheting across the valley, the little people were on the move. To Daddy Dough Balls’ relief, the hash pointed down the Lower Middleton’s path, following the fence.
All hazards were experienced on this short path, slippery mud, metal and wire, prickly pear, crabs and RATS! Over and Done With was supposed to be clearing the path for those ahead but didn’t manage to scare the creatures away. No one had time to stop and admire the giant hanging cactus in flower, pace is everything.
Red shirted people could be heard and seen waving from the water catchment area, they had found the circle check following the shorter upper Middleton’s path. Surely they had frightened all rodents from the vicinity of the mountain with the noise they were making? No!
The groups met at the circle check on the water catchment, no one wanted to climb to the next cairn so the groups crossed paths. The more advanced group threatening to remove the vehicle parked at the radar site on their return. Screams of ‘rat’ were soon to be heard but Boy Racer fooled no one throwing sticks into the bushes.
On the road there were two options, down the telegraph poles or the ramps again. Sniffy warned everyone not to grab the poles on passing due to the slight risk of them being live, then recounted unfortunate tales of urinating against live pylons??! Sniffy walked safely back down the ramps but there was no stopping Boy Racer and Dr Livingstone. Old Golly Wobbler received a rather nice wasp sting so decided the safer option was definitely the road. Poor No Idea stood waiting to join in the pole run but had missed the bus so opted for a ride back down the mountain (again)! Dr Livingstone found quite a brave land crab with long arms and pincers. He was much braver then the crab.
The Sports field in sight, the beer cool and puddles inviting but hash business needed attending to. Not much business but thanks to No Idea for setting her first hash. A great exploration of some tracks and paths. Even Daddy dough Balls admitted it had been worth the climb.
