BIG MOUNTAIN - "The Long Walk Home"
Hares: Basil, Mr Hoang
Hash Flash: Dr Who, Blondie
We all met at Hon Ru Ri at 14:00, despite very windy weather. Some Hashers prepared their raincoats and hoped to use them, but after we disembarked our “Hashmobiles” at 491 Tran Phu, the weather got sunny.
Hashers were ready to go to the meeting point, but got distracted by an old lady trying to convince them not to follow the Hare if they wished to go to the mountain!
Hare Basil led everyone through the village to the starting point, and when everyone arrived, he started the chalk talk.
The trail is easy today for Hash Virgin Grandma Roi; we start by going up the slope, and then follow the red tape through area with barking dog. Then go up the mountain full of tall grass which is overgrown after a few weeks of rain.
Co-Hare Mr Hoang unfortunately couldn’t join today, so Basil stuck with the last group, with Viking and Terminator taking care of the first groups.
As we reached the last stretch, we walked down to Tran Phu street while greeted by villagers and kids, and the Hashers decided to walk back to Hon Ru Ri instead of taking the “Hashmobiles”. Some even managed to buy seafood for tonight's dinner!
As we walked a long way along Tran Phu, and realised it is still far, half the Hashers decided to take “Hashmobiles” while the other half run and walk to reach Hon Ru Ri.
When we all get to the Down Down and the time is exactly 17:00, Basil started the Group Picture and then the Circle.
After Welcome Message, we got “Ki Ki” who volunteered to rate the trail 10/10, with reasons explained by Lady D being good weather and long walk to Hon Ru Ri.
Then we welcomed Hash Virgin Grandma Roi who is 75, with grandson Erik as translator (he also sponsored her to the Hash).
We now introduced the opposite of Sinners: “Saints” - all those who decided to walk and run back to Hon Ru Ri, so a lot of Saints in the Circle!
And then Sinners, which Basil took because he also joined the “Hashmobile” group.
The “Astro Family” convinced Basil to name their final family member, so Carlo will now be known as “Astro Dad” even though he only join 5 times so far!
And finally an announcement for next week's trail: it will be on Small Mountain, to Jesus statue, and Basil volunteered to set it. Also, if anyone wants to go inside the Jesus statue, you must wear something to cover the skin.
We'll meet at Hon Ru Ri next Sunday, as usual: 2 pm for 2.30 pm start - in any weather!
