29 OCTOBER 2023
Hares: Secs, Chippy, Bull Ant
Hash Flashers: Chippy, Chom Chom
Ring Master: Uncle
Weather: High scattered cloud, no rain.
Hash Cash: Mr T & Johnny on bus return trip.
Total Hashers: 39
Trail: Hashmobile through Phước Hải township and past new beachside resorts to Hồ Tràm Grand. Picked up more Hashers then continued north along Bình Châu coast road another 7 minutes and dismounted at roadside camping area for Chalk talk by Secs. Carefully walked 3-400 metres back along busy road and turned right into jungle. Followed meandering, fairly level sandy trail inland, past prickly shrubs and bamboo until the trail turned to rocks and climbed steeply. In true Hash fashion (never leave a fellow Hasher behind!), we helped each other to climb several large (monstrous!) boulders onto the lookout area at top of the small’ish mountain (hill? mount?) to enjoy the ocean views and take photos before returning via same trail to roadside camping area and more water views from the beachside rocks. Total distance approx 3 km.
Highlights: Views from trail lookout rocks; more ocean views and swimming at Down Down lagoon.
Down Down: Rừng và biển (“Forest and sea”) roadside camping area with old wooden pier over lagoon (sign: “No fishing”).
Refreshments: Saigon Chill, water, softies. Banh mi with pork crackling, cucumber, noodles, dipping sauce. Water melon, bananas.
Circle: Trail rated 27/10(!). Hares Bull ant, Chippy, Secs thanked. Hash Virgin Hien Pham welcomed. Returnees welcomed back: Ms Thu (3 years running business), Ms “Pinky” Canh (7 months absence).
Return journey: Pleasant 90 mins incl. 2 comfort stops!
