FRONT HORN: LARA BACK HORN: TIGER MOTH
Well, it started in the usual fashion with a punctual "meep, meep" at 5:15pm from the front horn, Lara. Off we went, with gusto because the inviting pool keenly awaited our return!
Up the hill, over the hill, down the other side and the usual left turn in off the main road. Mrs Pingu, Yogi Beer and Lara leading the way. Then, the usual right turn up the hill, but, today, only a little way up before we had to turn right in towards the jungle. Sadly, faaaaar too many walkie-talkies missed this and carried on up the hill! Definitely the biggest fail I have ever seen on the hash by hens not following paper!
Anyway, on we went on the usual trail, but in reverse, a lovely trail which led us to a waterfall. A good check kept the few front runners busy looking for sometime, but eventually, Mrs Pingu's roar could be heard.
Up we went the steep hill which carried on forever, until we met the troop heading the wrong way at about 3km in. Front runners discussed the confusion for sometime as they ran, but we were 100% confident we had led the pack the correct way.
Eventually, we popped out onto the fire trail after a good 45mins trek in the jungle. A long, beautiful run, as the sun set, to take us back home, with a very clear OUT spelt in paper and an arrow pointing down the hill to show us the way. A great lollipop run for all (no matter which direction you did it in) and a whopping 6,7km by my tracker.
Alison and Smurf led the shout up. Where was Pee Wee? She had miraculously disappeared. We had two guests from the army, we had Rosie sworn in as a new member with her unforgettable mobile phone down her leggings, vibrating scenario! No prizes for guessing her hash handles in a few months time!
We had a hashit for not signing out (idiot!) and, followed by Siaw Yen's tasty birthday cake. In fact, it was a busy birthday week as Rush Hour and Lara were celebrating too!
That was it for another week! Until next time. On on.
