NUI DINH - Live trail, and flowers for the ladies!
Hares: Samson, Shaky
Hash Flash: Cousin
Ring Master: Basil
We met in our new/old place called Hon Ru Ri (previous called Sao Bien 4) for an away trail to Dinh Mountain, because the Minh Dam mountain might be closed for investigating a recent bush fire.
We all board the Hash Bus for the trip to Dinh Mountain and on the way, we got Ms Lan and Ms Dung and Ms Lan (who join us more than 6th times) who wished to join us for this trail.
As we arrived at our destination, we all followed the only Hare, Shaky, because Hare SamSon was unable to come. As we walk, Hashers took some bamboo walking sticks to help with the trail.
As soon as we arrived at the coffee shop, Hare Shaky begin his chalk-talk, the trail go to the intersection and turn left and follow the red tape to the steep hill and coming out the steep hill, will reach the cement road and follow it to the coffee shop and go back to the bus for the Down Down.
As Hare Shaky take us to where the cement road is, he forgot the starting point of the tape, so we all followed until we realised there was no tape further on. Everyone suspected we already passed the starting point, but Hashers decided to turn this into a live Hare trail.
We continued forward through the forest with veteran Hashers The Gardener, UFO, Ronald Reagan, Flying Finn and Faulty Brakes helping; the plan is to walk an hour and after that, everyone must turn around.
Veteran Hasher Ronald Reagan remembered part of his trail setting in this forest, but all the old tape was gone, so we continued into the forest through the path which was more open than going through thick jungle.
We ventured down the mountain path but then time is up, Gardener told everyone to go back and he and UFO and Ronald Reagan will look further and then turn back later to make sure they are the last.
As we go back to the bus and veteran Hashers catch up to us, Hare Shaky noticed the red marker tape and found the trail that he and SamSon set yesterday, it was true that we had all passed the starting point at the beginning!
Everyone make it back to the bus safely, and drinks from our sponsor help everyone recover 100 per cent strength for the group photo and then the Circle hosted by Ring Master Basil.
After the welcome message, Basil bring in the Hare Shaky and Basil will drink for the missing Hare SamSon, and everyone agreed that while this trail turned into Live Hare, it still deserved 10/10, and Faulty Brakes rate it in the Circle.
We welcomed Hash Virgin Ms Lan, introduced by Ms Dung (last week’s Hash Virgin, a receptionist with Imperial Hotel), Returnee Grandma Rita and Ms Chuyen. Also Sinner Shaky for forgetting the start of the trail!
We bring in the Hash Ladies to the Circle, and they all received a deserved flower because all of them are beautiful and it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday and International Women’s Day on Tuesday!
Announcement to Hashers who heard last week that there is a planned Away Trip to Coco Beach Camp at the end of March, but it is unfortunately cancelled because the place is fully booked.
Also, now the trail has been found, Basil asked if the Circle wished to return here to Dinh Mountain and finish the trail set by Hare SamSon and Shaky, with mostly agree.
So unless further notice, next week’s trail will stay the same on the website NEXT RUN box.
We’ll meet again on Sunday at 2 pm for 2.30 pm start at Hon Ru Ri floating restaurant formerly known as Sao Bien 4 – about 30 metres east of the Ho May Park cable car complex on Tran Phu (see website home page for details).
