NUI DINH - a long, enjoyable trek through the jungle
Live Hares: SamSon, Cousin
Hash Flash: Uncle
Ring Master: SamSon
It looked like rain was on the way as we gathered under darkening skies at Hon Ru Ri - so we quickly loaded the Hashmobile and headed off to Nui Dinh, via Hoang Hoa Tham to collect some footwear!
We disembarked at the bridge on Nui Dinh for a chalk-talk by Basil under now clear skies, while live hares SamSon and Cousin headed off to mark what was later acknowledged as an excellent trail.
Then it was On On! with a group of enthusiastic junior hashers leading the way. It soon became important to “spot the red tape” and make lots of “On On” shouts, because there’s no way we’d have got through the many twists and turns in sometimes dense undergrowth without such a clearly marked trail and constant communication!
We finally made it out to the lake at the top of the mountain for many photos and “pig feeding”(!) before heading along the final kilometre or so to the bus and our bright red eskies!
Plenty of time for socialising as everyone gradually returned at their own pace, then it was time for a group photo before the Circle was convened by Ringmaster SamSon.
Live Hares SamSon and Cousin were rated 10/10 by junior hashers Patrick and Mark, then no fewer than 7 Hash Virgins were welcomed, followed by returnee Bambi and 8 sinners for “enjoying themselves too much on the trail” and associated misdemeanours real and imagined!
Hash Family Mark, John and Ms Trang were given soccer-related Hashtags for reasons unknown - and will henceforth answer to Messi, Ronaldo and Hope Solo respectively!
Announcements included a reminder about the Red Dress (charity) Run on 5 June, with distribution of red Li Xi envelopes for voluntary donations; and another request for details about bars, restaurants, hotels, etc that don’t currently sell San Miguel - so our sponsor’s salespeople can follow-up.
We finally returned to Vung Tau accompanied by a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday” for Patrick, who had decided to celebrate his 9th birthday with some healthy exercise in the Ba Ria-Vung Tau hinterland!
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) - hoping for early rain on the day so we can finally see the waterfall again on our Big Mountain "waterfall" trail!
