RUN NO. 2183
Tuesday, June 29, 2010
The last hash I did here was about 18months ago.. I remembered it well.. as we were searching for the first check for what seemed like hours!!
Anyway.. todays run wasnt like that at all...
We set off up the lane, following a well laid trail of paper... and soon wended our way into the deepest darkest jungle of Muara...
I was fortunate to hear the Checking call so continued down the lane and not into the jungle.. following what I presumed could be the out trail... (funnily enough.. the hares said they saw me and had to lay flat so as not to be seen...) believe me.. I didnt see them!
I heard the ON paper call and headed back to the brooding pack.. (not sure who found what.. sorry)
From here on in we were IN the jungle..
Slippery slithery wet and prickly jungle... NOT my favourite place to be, especially as it had started to rain now.. and seemed to be getting dark.. (Im still Traumatized by the stormy wet diplo hash on margs birthday last year!!!!!!!!)
It became rather boggy and very smelly.. and at this point I was overtaken by two of cath burnetts dogs who decided they were far batter at finding the way through... (and they were)
….. so I decided, there and then... that.. I was going to be a complete wimp and turn back..
I dont like to admit that I turned back.. as I know how much effort is put into laying each and every hash.. and I always kind of feel disloyal... BUT.. im afraid I did wimp out after first check this time...
I walked back though the jungle with Sarah and old lady reflux (Nicole).... we had a good old chat and discussed the merits of us not yomping through the jungle with the others, as the weather was starting to get worse... self preservation won the day today!
I heard the trail took the other (Braver far more hashworthy ladies) over to kapok kanan and then looped back..
The first runner in was the lovely Claire, who was rewarded with a huge round of applause, as the rain was now pelting down... Satu lagi came in next... and somehow I dont think she was impressed with the rain... Nil Point!
The rest of the flock came in in dribs and drabs.. but all were back at the roost safely.
The Down Downs commenced...There was a new member (Please forgive me as I didnt catch her name but shes been here 10 years and teaches at JIS!) there were no special awards and Auntie Lynn got the Hashshit cos A;she could B;it was suggested shes tossed off twice at panaga.and won!. C; there was NO one else! Well taken Auntie Lynn...
Thanks to the hares for the food too...
On On … Pickled lilli (on bahalf of the Committeeeeeeeeeee) (and my last write up b4 I leave!)

RUN NO. 2181
I arrived at the site feeling really tired, thinking this is going to be very hard work!
Tango on the other had was very enthusiastic, she took the front horn and off we went, 5.15 on the dot! Up the hill, up up and UP and onwards.
We arrived at first check and Tango was convinced it was straight on, through the swampy water. I didn't want to get wet.........
instead I decided to go checking up the hill - bad move and definitely the wrong one as I reach the top of the hill I hear Call girl call "On Paper". Oh well, down I go and join Tango as we head off to the next check.
After too much chatting we decide to start running a bit and I stumble onto second check quite quickly. So far the run has been lovely. Familiar routes and we are all enjoying the jungle and it's ups and downs.
New girl Gina and Magic Roundabout are setting a good pace and we follow pursuit.
Magic Roundabout finds third check and at this point I don't feel that tired anymore. I have got new energy and race off towards the calls.
We are almost "home" and arrive at this open area, surely no more checks?
Lots off us arrive and we are all looking and checking, then I spot Alice in Wonderland far far up a hill. Forth check is found and Gina and I run back to sign out!
Lovely run, everyone's out and no ones lost!
We arrive at Rachel's house greeted by 4 Queens!!!
Lovely red satin outfits with glittery tiara's, they looked very Royal, indeed!
It's the Queens birthday and we are served "Special tea" and lots of Regal , lovely food! Very Yummy!!!
Through out the shout up the Royal's sat in the back on their thrones, taking it all in, like the Royals do.
We had guests Jan and Dhany from NZ and the US and also Erin a returning hasher who's passing through on her travels.
The Queens were handing out Special awards and medals to hashers that had contributed in various ways, all very special and entertaining for all of us.
Lastly the Hash Shit went to Possum and Satu Lagi and they returned it nicely by throwing the water back at us all!!
Thank you ladies for such a GRAND EFFORT and use of Rachel's house!

RUN NO. 2180
It was a good run, some hashers forgot their shoes and ran in crocs, so luckily we didn't get too wet. We signed out, found out Fertile Myrtle had delivered baby number 4, that Survivor had a baby; that is her daughter had a baby and the shout up was under way. Two guests a Kiwi (Elaine) and a Brit (Shantal), and couple of funny jokes from Miss Pink and Speedo. We wished a speedy recovery to Alison, her hubby and niece after a horrible boating accident, and showered Christine with water and noisy chickens for not signing in! Thanks to the hares for a yummy dinner, AND CONGRATS TO TRAILBLAZER AND READYMIX ON THEIR 400TH RUN, but the night was still young and full of drama. Not only did Satu Lagi lose her mobile phone in the big blue 'Ice Bucket', she was heard from Kuala Belait, 'going off' at her driver for crashing into PeeWee's little Swifty!!!! How much room does a driver need to turn the car??? Apparently more than DST has to offer....maybe we could have our shout ups on the runway, ask for clearance for a few hours so Satu Lagi's driver has plenty of room and no obstacles to smash into....That's one for the suggestion box.
Enjoy ladies, thank you for your kindness. On On!!!
