BIG MOUNTAIN - "M90 trail"
Hash Flash: Tiger. Additional photos: Radio Wave
It was a hot, sunny day as we gathered at Hon Ru Ri for the M90 trail - so named because it starts off Vi Ba next to a shop-house with a huge "M90" sign on the wall.
A quick photo at the HRR entrance gate and then we crossed Tran Phu for the trek to Hem 89 and onwards down Vi Ba for about 150 metres to the ‘M90’ sign near the former Venus nightclub.
The chalk talk explained that we’d be going around the side of the mountain to the “crossroads” that many experienced Hashers are familiar with from the “waterfall” trail, and from there it would be downhill and back via Hem 89 to Hon Ru Ri for the Circle and Down Downs.
We left a couple of short-cutters to head for the Hem 89 steps and went straight uphill, but fortunately not for too far before the track levelled out a bit. We continued around the side of the mountain, always going upwards in varying degrees.
We finally reached the crossroads and down we went to Vi Ba, before continuing to Hon Ru Ri via Hem 89 to complete the A to A circle and down a few ice-coldies.
We took a team photo (substituting San Mig-branded eskies for the missing banner!), then Ringmaster Basil and apprentice Messi called the Circle and Alex rated Uncle’s trail. He said it was ‘good, a bit short, but steep at the beginning’ and gave it 9, + 1 for good weather = 10/10!
Hash Virgins Ms Linh (works for Tourism and saw VTH3 on Trip Advisor), Ms Ngan (relocated to Vung Tau for work and saw VTH3 website) and Ms Hoa (friend of Poison Flower) were welcomed; then returnees Ice Water and Poison Flower. Sinners were short-cutters Poison Flower and Ms Hoa, charged by Uncle, plus Hope Solo charged by Radio Wave for “the world’s longest phone call on the Hash”.
No volunteers to set next week’s trail(!) so Basil told everyone to watch the NEXT RUN box during the week (STOP PRESS: former Hasher Motors volunteered after the Circle to set a trail with Strainer at Minh Dam Secret Zone).
We’ll meet at Hon Ru Ri on Sunday as usual: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start – in any weather!
