Well, it was really but am fed up of that statement …….
So, a small but sophisticated group of 4H banded together in wonderful weather (am a poet too …!)
We had some (as we now know …) vague and not complete instructions from the Hare – Downhill,- and set of at a cracking pace. We were warned that there was no water, but we could cross it without getting our socks wet … this was good news for Dripper …
Cherisse, our new walker, was a bit tardy in her appearance but managed to catch up. (Her limo driver was unavailable so she had to drive herself ….aaahhh !)
Despite all the worries or not, we all managed to converge back at the start eventually.
The Hare was duly charged for not being specific about his trail for walkers (WHERE HAD THE W’s GONE ?) and not much else happened …
or I forgot ! It was a very good run though and enjoyed by all …. Great to see a few returnee’s too !
We were a tad chilly as the sun set so the circle got smaller and smaller as we huddled around Skippy’s fire. He even managed to get his oldish sneakers a wee bit molten …. Watch out for new shoes !
Till next week

A small select boutique gaggle of Hashers congregated at the very tiny car park that young Skippy had chosen. We managed to cram ourselves in and, as the weather was kind, we waited in anticipation for run instructions. They were a bit vague with lots of hand waving and gesticulating ! However, runners and walkers set off in the same direction with lots of W’s veering off for walkers.
According to my inside information, the run was a bit lumpy, rocky and steep. The trail was well marked and the pack kept together. Also, Dripper did not come back with wet socks despite having to cross a few creeks ! The walk was really pleasant for all …
Once we had all returned safely, we convened the circle with the stand-in GM and stand-in RA …. we were surprised to see the RA, in full Monk attire, wearing the Lame-Duck hat ! Hmmm …. more to come …..
There was a virgin walker this week (with her limo driver) so welcome to Hills Hash …… Ha Ha Ha – was fun showing how to do a down-down !
Other charges were, of course, for the Hare and a few others who were not that significant, were you Skimpy ??? ! The Lame Duck wearer explained it was a gardening accident but, you know ….. well …..um !?
A significant mention needs to be made that THERE WAS NO SPINIFEX ON THIS RUN … OMG …. thank goodness ! Some of us have had enough of those needles ….
