Run # 1,522
The A bucket for today’s run was the Hex Shelter near OB Khan – the collapsed wall still hasn’t been repaired. I think some hasher or other leaned against it a couple of years ago and it came tumbling down. Anyway, At this time of year, as we’re well into the rainy season, it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on the heavens. The weather looked promising with no imminent signs of foreboding clouds overhead. A day later, it would have been a different story. So it’s good to see that Chuck Wao, Religious Advisor, is keeping on top of his duties.
The hare for today’s escapade was Mary Poppins. As far as I’m aware, he is a virgin hare on the CSH3. However, he was under the supervision of the ever vigilant HRA acting in the role of co-hare. So it could be quite correctly assumed that there would be the odd hill or two to negotiate and surmount.
The usual hare brief was given. The only thing I remember about it was the fact there was only one trail meaning no Rambo – Wimp split. That meant I was going to be in for a bit of strenuous exercise, not necessarily a bad thing. Around 30 hashers set off into familiar territory with the usual suspects taking the lead. Those being Titty Smoker, Pussy Whisperer and Deep Throat. The trail took us through the barbed wire fence which seems an obligatory portal to pass through when ever we run in this area. A short while later I came across Sheep Shagger collecting stones for the rockery in his garden, but it looked like he was giving them to Happy Ending to carry.
It wasn’t long after that we were confronted with the first hill. At this point I was was towards the back of the pack, no surprise there, among the rear echelon harriett foraging party. Those being Super Bitch, Microwave, Hot Nipples and Geisha Gash, to name but a few. All taking advantage of natures wonderful bounty. Although there was plenty of greenery to gather and collect there was a shortage of mushrooms which created a constant source of whinging among the fore mentioned during the run. Future hares take note, make sure there is an adequate amount of fungus along any trails you set. We clambered to up the hill with the usual puffing, panting and the odd expletive here and there until we reached the top. But as soon as we got to the top we seemed to descend quite precipitously and precariously down the other side.
We eventually got to the bottom of the hill where I came across a very good bamboo walking stick. I later found out, it had been discarded by Turkish Delight. I wish he had thrown it away before we ascended the hill and not after. Not long after we came to the ONIN which again took us through the obligatory barbed wire fence and back to the A bucket. The run was about 6 km and took me about an hour and twenty minutes. A good workout was had by all.
Congratulations on a great virgin set by Mary Poppins and his co hare HRA, well done guys.
