SMALL MOUNTAIN - the "back road" to Jesus statue
A relaxed bunch of more than 20 Hashers and two 'Hash hounds' (Yoffi and Hashputin) left Sao Bien 4 in bright sunshine for the hike across Front Beach. Then it was left across Halong and "On On" via Phan Chu Trinh to Hem 220, then right and left and through the commune (very sleepy today - even the dogs!), and up the back way to Jesus statue. Nothing much to report along the way, apart from a "local road-kill" count of three 'dead' motorbikes and one 'dead' bicycle (plus groceries) - but fortunately no-one seriously injured.
Some Hashers came down the mountain by an earlier trail, but most did the right thing and descended by the tourist steps.
A bit of a wait in the open parking area back on ground level, but the eskies finally arrived by taxi(!) and were swiftly pounced upon by the thirsty horde! A new delicacy was on offer today from our 'foodies' - Latvian fish! (and very nice too!).
Lots of socialising followed, and we took the team photo then formed a Circle. Duty Ring Master Basil nominated Terminator to score the trail, which resulted in 8/10. But Uncle added 2 points for the Bash (Bicycle Hash - because he's injured!). However, Titanic stepped in and gave an 'average' 9/10, which earned three Down Downs!
Only one Hash virgin today - Ms Hang, introduced by Ms Nga, and one visitor, Greg, a former Cairns (Qld, Australia) hasher.
Basil admitted to being a sinner for telling everyone last week that we were on run 690 when it should have been 680, so Uncle joined him because he'd spotted the error - and earned a double Down Down when Taffy mentioned that he'd fallen off his bike on the way down the mountain!
Then it was time for Ms Nga to receive a Hashtag - immediately nominated by Mother Teresa as "Butterfly"! No dissentions - motion carried: exit Ms Nga, enter Ms Butterfly!
Time to thank the "foodies" once again: Mountain Goat, Mother Teresa and D&G - lovely grub (especially the Latvian fish!).
Mountain Goat and Terminator volunteered to set next Sunday's trail - see NEXT RUN box - and Uncle said he's met a promising contact for new trails on Nui Dinh, so that's a "to be confirmed" for the week after.
In the meantime, we’ll meet at the Sao Bien 4 restaurant on Sunday, as usual, at 2 pm for 2.30 pm start – see home page for directions.
