LONG HAI MOUNTAINS - the return of UXO and search for the Easter Bunny!
It was a big welcome back this week to one of VTH3's "favourite sons" - UXO (aka "our very own Dangerman!"). After finalising registration and loading the all-important eskies, we headed out to Long Hai and parked near the now familiar Ngoc Xuong resort.
A Chalk Talk by Falcon on an extremely hot day and it was "On On" along a sandy track for about 1 km, until we turned left and found ourselves heading up the mountain through dense bamboo, occasionally interspersed with a few rocks for good measure, until we finally reached the large "painted boulder" at the top. (Worth noting that the Hares had already nicknamed it "the lost trail", having spent several hours earlier in the week hacking their way through the undergrowth only to encounter impenetrable bamboo near the top.)
Some Hashers sported punctured skin by this time, but nearly everyone made it successfully to the top (one savvy Hasher heeded VTH3 Protocol 101.2 - "Know your limitations" and rested his injured knee at the bottom.)
There was just time for a quick rest at the top to enjoy the view and rehydrate ourselves, before it was "Down down" the mountainside and back to the Ngoc Xuong resort via the big rock temple.
The Circle was called and the trail awarded a worthy 8.5/10 by Ronald Reagan. Hash Virgins Tobin, Sam (UK) and Tien (Vietnam) were welcomed and various sinners punished (including UXO for being away too long!). And then Ms Hien was given the Hash monicker "Bunny" (well it was Easter, after all!). The weather was so hot that the copious "icings, VTH3-style" were welcomed by everyone.
STOP PRESS: Hares The Gardener, SamSon and Ut have set a new trail on Big Mountain that they call "The Connection Trail" (see NEXT RUN box). New recruit Ut did very well, sometimes leading the way. It promises to be a good day's Hashing on Sunday - meet as usual in the Offshore Bar 1 beer garden, 2 pm for 2.30 pm start. See you there!
