The Hash in the East

Another superb hash. The trail took us through some fairly rough terrain, over rock, and down dale. At times I was crawling through the bush – not something I get the chance to do often on the hash. I don’t know how things are at the back-end of the hash these days, but it’s positively jovial at the front. Trevor is usually there, only held back from storming off in front by the constant threat that I’ll down-down him ‘til he drowns. New arrival blood-sucker is a fit lad as well: if we see him again, I’ll have to make sure he’s had 2 or 3 beers in him before he starts. We had excitement on arrival, Inspector & Mrs Gadget’s car became stuck in the soft sand. 4 or 5 sturdy blokes pushed hard from behind, but just weren’t strong enough. Instead we tried bouncing her at the front, but she didn’t seem to notice. Eventually, just about every bloke there took hold of her bumpers and arches and with a mighty heave and an inaudible pop pushed her back uphill. Hurrah for us.
People were going too fast: I’m not getting younger, and the least that people could do is start going slower.
Culprit number 1 – Bloodsucker. He has also in his time been a tax-man. What more reason can there be?
Claudia, who I noticed in front of me at several points in the hash.
Mireille: for the car incident. I know that Mr Gadget was in front of the wheel, but we all know that Mireille is in fact in the driving seat, so it must have been her fault.
Trevor: Trevor did not come forward as a 2nd Timer. Therefore he passed up a beer-drinking opportunity. Therefore he got a fresh one!
Ross – Ross is in fact a hasher from way back in his childhood. He graced us with his presence – although not for the run itself.
The Captain’s Joke
The notes supplied to me indicate that there was a joke about an architect, but let’s face it, since it involved architects it can’t have been a very good joke can it? [NB Before anyone complains this is a very specifically targeted insult. So please don’t let architects world-wide bom bard me with lawsuits, as I am sure was about to happen]
