In the hours before sunset the adventure began. Tango, while attempting a particularly tricky short cutting manoeuvre managed to lodge her 4WD over a deep drain. Nothing shifts a jeep with one wheel hanging over a chasm, but not to worry, from a neighbouring simpang Cannibal ‘flew’ in to the rescue with a strong jack and a piece of wood. It’s amazing how many new skills he has perfected while waiting for his plane to arrive! In a flash of highly tuned skill, order was restored. Thank you.
The hens clucked in happiness and soon Pee Wee led us down from Bini Hutan’s garden into the jungle. Already we, (Madam Sin, Jan M and I) were at the back and contemplating THAT big hill. But no, the trail turned right and down following the old riverbed. We took a quick detour to see the moonscape below and were shocked to see the destruction and demolition of so many pretty runs! And to what purpose, I ask? Back to the trail, over a lovely old bridge and out onto a new construction road. We could see the paper going right into the jungle, and we could hear hens everywhere. Soon we could see them milling about everywhere too. A few headed off checking afar, especially up a particularly nasty hill. Jane, as it turned out, was oh so close, but…… the on was called and down they all came. Alas! Magic had got it wrong and picked up the very trail she had come in on!! She headed home! The rest, clucked and fussed until Captainess Sparrow, looking up to the ridge said, “Ahoy my hearties!! I know that there tree!!” so off they all puffed, back from where Jane so cruelly came. The run was ‘on’ again.
I must confess that the rest is conjecture as we headed back for the beer! Rumour had it that the trail wound up and down past trees and stuff, out and across another road, down into the ‘hutan’ again, down a precipice – how did they do that? Abseiling of course!! And then confusion as paper had been moved. However, help was at hand. This time Juergen came to the rescue and all was well. Everyone soon followed Tango out as she arrived out with third check in her arms!! What some people do to assure themselves of hashit!
Nellie led an instructive shout up – leaving people clear about the whys and wherefores of the hash. Hares were thanked for delicious makan. Pee Wee and Tis Alice for the horns, and Jessica, on becoming a new member, showed us how to down down. Hashit was awarded to Tango as a reward for all her hard work, and Madam Sin for allowing her SMS to buzz!! From there on the night grew fuzzy, not with warm feely things, but due to ice cold wet ones!
