FRONT HORN: MEAN MACHINE BACK HORN: TRAILBLAZER
"I'm sure the rain won't last long" I assured my guest just before I picked her up. Famous last words... On arriving at Mentiri Waterfall the rain was drizzling when we opened the car doors and never stopped. A smallish but enthusiastic group of ladies were all kitted out and attacked the trail with vim and vigor probably heartened by the pre-run information that it wasn't going to be too long or vicious. As I'd arrived a little late I set off with Alice in Wonderland and my guest Anna whose apprehension about jungle trekking increased once Alice and I realized we were doing the trail backwards. Nothing daunted we continued on with Alice 'checking' to pick up the 'on' paper trail until we met the front runners making their way up a hill and a laid through trail to follow. The group included The Recruiter who cunningly used her superior trail knowledge to find all three checks! Horns were Trailblazer and Mean Machine.
We continued along greeting other hashers (going around backwards is such a nice way to say hello to everyone) up and down, up and down, up and down. Thanks Hares for an enjoyable Mentiri Falls hash along easily walked trails just made a little slippery by the constant light rain.
The on on was held at Peachi Keen's lovely abode in Kebangsaan Lama. A call for assistance with food resulted with Sam I Am, Pedigree Pup and Ripper stepping forward to help out our hares. Thanks ladies for the scrumptious build your own burgers. I also sampled a very refreshing punch. A fairly quick shout up ensued with hares and horns thanked, Anna introduced as a first time guest from Canada on holiday in Brunei (she hopes to join CfBT in January), a rather risqué joke supplied by myself as a poor attempt at entertainment, and reminders about the 7 in 7 hash in September as well as the Lawas Malaysia Day Hash Saturday 29th August.
This weeks run is at Subok 67 with hares Duchess of Cambridge and Ally. Cars can either be parked at 67 or you may prefer to walk along from the on on site at house 2, 106 Jln Subok. This is not a long or hard hash and is a chance to visit an old hashing area some of you haven't been to in a long time or perhaps not at all. Bring your chair to the on on as no tent this week. Please park responsibly on the main road and not up the Simpang. On On.
NEXT RUN: SUBOK 67
