Run report for August 27, 2012
Hare: El Keeno
On On: Moola Rd, Mahogany Creek
The adventure began before the run had even started. In my mind it had seemed interesting to have everyone park quite a ways from the road in one of the many gravel clearings in the area. I suppose it worked out okay after quite a bit of wheel spinning. Ah, gravel…nature’s ball-bearings.
This was the week I went all-out for the walkers. I set the walk FIRST, determined to give them a top-notch affair. Typically, and just my luck, this was the week when most walkers were busy doing other things. Not to worry, Frodo joined them and the three had quite a nice saunter around the bush. (Well, they all made it back alive, which is what counts most.)
Runners started off downhill. There was a wee bit of bush bashing where I’d lost myself while setting the trail, but not enough to draw too much blood. Dripper did a good job of hunting out a few of the initial false trails, but overall it was a bit of a fast run, spreading out the pack. (Mental note…more and nastier false trails next time!) Skippy led much of the way until his sixth-sense abandoned him and he bolted in entirely the incorrect direction … giving me that slightly warm and fuzzy feeling that all (sadistic) Hares enjoy..
The run turned homewards once reaching O’Connor Road and then did a bit of twisty stuff on both sides of Moola. Not nearly as long as I thought while setting it, I think we came home after about 45 minutes.
The Monks thingo of terror made no showing in the circle, but her head apparel more than made up for that.
Thing I learned for the day: there is more than one horse.
That’s it from me.
