RUN NO. 2137 - SPG 378 SG AKAR

The Hashit taken graciously by Tania.

The Hares - Alison,

Cheryl and Sue

Kellie after the up and up and up ....

DATE: 4 Aug 2009
SITE: Spg 378 Sg Akar
HARES: Alison/Cheryl & Sue
As I got to the site, having dropped off the words earlier, a row of cars neatly parked up one side of the "hill" could be seen - It meant having to park down the bottom and trudge all the way up. Anyway, a good warm up, and soon the horn was heard and hens started up the usual cut.

We had been warned about traps along the trails and were on a look out for these. We soon dipped left down from the ridge. The hares had indicated that it would be a big down followed by a big up...... we were soon going down, and down, and down. So far, so good. We then had a small up and soon first check was called., and on we went. Then paper ran out and the front runners went on ahead and found some paper which did not seem to be layed "correctly" and of character of experienced hares that had laid the run. We trudge on and soon found ourselves at the Markucing ridge. Hens went left and right, looked down tracks, but no paper. Time was ticking on, with the whole pack together - albeit a bit small - as quite a few hens were still on holiday, the decision was made that we should turn around and go back the way we came.

Moans and groans were heard all the way, as we had been down down down, the obvious up up and up could not be avoided. All were out with hens exhaused and most reminded of the last hash at the same site when the hares had lost their reccee paper and we had to turn around as well.

GM Madmarg's call for the hashit was made easy as Tania's phone went just as shout up began, and Christine was glad to pass this on.

Thank you Alison, Cheryl and Sue for the hot baked potatoes with all sorts of toppings which went down a treat and the evening continued as usual under the cloud of haze.
NEXT RUN: DIPLO - Veronica L's birthday run
