LONG SON ISLAND - "One step at a time..."
Hares: Basil, Cousin, Shaky
Hash Flash: Cousin. Additional photos: Radio Wave
We met at Hon Ru Ri (formerly Sao Bien 4) in reasonable Hash weather (“only” 33C) for the bus trip to Long Son Island, and dismounted near the outdoor markets for a stroll through the pagoda to the bottom of “the old man of Long Son”, as locals call the mountain which dominates the island.
Co-hare Basil gave a chalk talk and then it was “On up” the boulder-strewn ascent to the peak. Plenty of photos at the top, then we hiked across the top of the mountain to descend on the east side to the main road down to Bang Lang restaurant and the familiar red San Miguel eskies to wash down Mother Teresa’s delicious Russian snacks.
Ringmaster SamSon called the Circle and introduced Hares Basil, Cousin and Shaky. Invited to rate the trail, Junior Hasher Mak said he enjoyed it and awarded a score of 9/10, much to the delight of the Hares.
Hash Virgins Thuy and grand-daughter Dung were welcomed along with John and Thien. Returnees Bus Stop, Tiny Tim, Uncle, Anti and Viking gave various excuses for their absences, with TT being awarded the “tube of shame” – which promptly became stuck on his massive forearm!
Sinners included Radio Wave for wearing “crocodile jaw” shoes, grandmother Thuy for casual street shoes with heels(!), Vadik for "overtaking on the inside", and Uncle for making such a frivolous charge!
Mother Teresa and Tiny Tim won the “mixed couples straw-drinking championship”; then Basil reminded everyone that our next Red Dress (charity) Run will be on 5 June (run #736) at Nui Dinh, with proceeds going to an orphanage of around 20 children in Ba Ria. Don’t forget to wear as many red clothes as possible on the day, in keeping with Hash "Red Dress Run" tradition (yes, you can wear a dress if you like - but it's not compulsory!).
Uncle then asked everyone to provide names, addresses and contact details for any bar, restaurant, hotel etc that doesn’t currently sell San Miguel products, so the information can be given to our sponsor for follow-up by their sales team.
And the final announcement was by Superteen, that she and Mother Teresa will be in Hanoi for several months – so they were given a couple of VTH3 t-shirts to pass on to our "cousins" in Hanoi Hash (H4).

We’ll meet again on Sunday at Hon Ru Ri floating restaurant: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start.
