After several weeks away from Happy Hash, something motivated me to go back and join the run… Can’t quite put my finger on it, but today hashing was FUN again!

The runsite was at the end of the earth – past where the canal road no longer has a canal… finally turning right at the furthest runsite known to mankind, except TMB, who carried us on around the corner and eventually to the A bucket. From there the run largely took us back towards the trails closer to the canal road!

We set off and had a bit of a scramble through shiggy meandering through some farm or other. Finally a circle check and arriving with Chuckie we both agreed that left was most likely. It was left, and I gleefully called on moments before realising I was scaring a herd of buffalo. Sadly the shouts of “On On Called” from behind was the final straw leaving a poor farmer holding the end of a stick while his cattle bolted. HRA was full of early run vigour and the farmer’s day was about to get a lot longer as he joined the hashers in chasing after the cows – not sure if he was following trail or cows…

We hit a road, and another circle check. I think Knockout and I unintentionally short cut here, but we found trail quickly enough, and managed to get some alone time in the bushes before the pack caught up. From here we hit familiar trails for a bit – nice running with Poo, KO and CW joining me at the front. There was lots of plastic rope tied to trees – some scouting preparation for a run CW is setting soon. We got to a pivotal circle check, CW and I together. He picked left, correctly and that was the last I saw of him. KO and I tried to chase him down, but as the rest of the checks were easy picks. Looking at the map now, I think his scouting helped him know for sure he was right!

Good fun run!
