For a change, I left work early, thinking that I had plenty of time to get to the hash. Unfortunately, I got stuck in a traffic jam on Jalan Tutong and only arrived on site at 5.45pm, just enough time to go for walk with Naj.
At least, Bini Hutan and Michaela made it, even though one of the hash signs along the road was pointing in the wrong direction!!!
We started, being just a small group, walking for a short while up the pylon track and then turned right and had very good running trails to follow, leading into a great landscape with lush vegetation. We crossed the stream so many times and couldn’t recall in the end whether it was the same stream or various others. It was slippery and very muddy, but what to expect after all that rain.
Eventually we reached first check with the front-runners long gone, as usual.
Continuing our way up and down along the stream and trying to enjoy the great jungle, as much as we could, we soon reached second check and then at some stage later third check.
Further we went along until the last steep hill, which we climbed, supported by a rope, and enjoyed the views from up there over the Mata- Mata area and the new government housing development. Soon after this we reached the on site.
It took a while until everyone got changed, before we started the shout up. A down down was given to the three hares, Trailblazer, Smurf and Cath C. Thank you for the great run and thank you for providing the food afterwards.
We had two new guests, Michaela and Jessica and one returning member, Rosemary, who were given a down down, too.
Dizzy tried her ever best to get rid of the hashit, but had no success.
All members were asked to try and park properly in future, as heavy trucks passed the site and had difficulty driving through. Glamour and Madam Sin did a good job directing the vehicles.
