18 May 2014
It was yet another hot and muggy day in Vung Tau on Sunday, with an enthusiastic band of Hashers past, present and future being ferried out to the start of run #629 at the bottom of Jesus Hill, on Small Mountain.
A Chalk Talk by Hot Dog and then it was "On On" up the many, many steps to the top. At the base of the Jesus statue we turned right and headed down some old steps leading to a downhill trail, which we followed until it emerged onto the dirt road that heads back around to the statue.
From there it was down to the many, many steps (in reverse) until we reached ground level, from where it was a mere(!) 2 kilometres of flat ground to our recently-discovered favourite spot in the area: the balcony at 32 Ha Long, opposite the Lan Rung resort.
Hareraiser SamSong had excelled himself once more by delivering the eskies even though he'd been prevented from joining the run by work commitments. "Well done, that man!"
After quenching our thirsts on San Migs and soft drinks, the Circle was called and SamSon and Hot Dog were awarded just 4/10 for the trail. Why so low, you might ask? Not their fault at all - it was the blind leading the blind in the pack who didn't turn right at the Jesus statue and instead just came down the "tourist steps"!
Hash Virgins Anatoly (Russia), Ms Thao and Ms Trang (both VN) were welcomed, as were returnees Titanic, D&G, UFO, Truong and Rowdy Waters. The usual suspects were penalised for sins real and imagined - and the day was made complete by Mountain Goat's "always welcome" Russian snacks!
KFC and Rowdy Waters have agreed to lay a trail this week on Long Son island - so we'll meet as usual, 2 for 2.30 pm start, Offshore Bar 1 beer garden. See you there!
