LONG SON ISLAND - "Up, up and over..."
Hares: Flying Finn, Skipper
Hash Flash: Paddy. Team photo: Fot tret
We all met again at Hon Ru Ri and Ms Hien and Junior Hasher Ben arrived just on time before our Hashmobile started to go to today’s trail in Long Son.
Weather forecast is sunny, and we picked up Terminator’s family and Aurora, and our Hash Flash Paddy was already waiting at Long Son. Total 41 Hashers today.
We disembarked at one of Long Son’s historical monuments, the Big House. Then we all walked to the base of the mountain and listened to co-Hare Flying Finn’s chalk-talk, while avoiding the goodwill of the locals who wanted to point out many ways to the mountain!
Once we listened to the Hare, then it is “On-On” to the mountain, with two Junior Hashers in the leading group.
With the trail both sunny and challenging, especially for first time Hashers, everyone helped and we took our time to reach the top.
Then we keep going down the mountain on the other side and must pass through a thick forest.
At this time, support Hares Basil and SamSon contacted the Hashmobile driver and directed him to pick up Hashers on the road.
Once we got every Hasher, we all going to the restaurant that serve local signature dish for our Down Down, we wash it down together with our ice cold San Miguels, soft drinks and water, and Hash Flash took this chance for inside restaurant photo shoot.
But for safer measure, Fot tret took another group photo outside the restaurant, then SamSon don the chain of office and started the Circle, but he’s been a long time offshore and forgot today’s run number!
After the welcome message, Hares Flying Finn and Skipper were brought into the Circle and Junior Hashers Ben and Ice Man were nominated to rate the trail, which they gave 10/10.
We welcomed Hash Virgins Andy from UK who learn about the Hash from Faulty Brakes; Ms Huyen, a friend of Viking, and daughter Khuyen; and Ms Nhan and Mr Hung, students of Ba Ria-Vung Tau university; so a Hash Virgin song is performed by Basil and SamSon.
Then Returnees, Mr Dan for working, SamSon has no excuse, Mr Phuoc also “Working!”, “Double working!!” for Ruslan, Tiny Tim “Working!!!” and Rita was in Russia!
Sinners: Faulty Brakes for the beer, our usual Skipper with his sandals and free beer, Basil for not handling the Hashmobile well, Flying Finn for not listening to Basil’s advice, and Mr Hung for wearing sandals. Basil is worst excuse so a tube of shame is presented to him, but 3 days ago was his birthday so a birthday song for him for always looking out for the Hash.
We finally reach the end of today’s run and we have Long Hai trail already set by Flying Finn and Skipper, so next week is Long Hai, "A" to "A" trail from Duong 36.
So we’ll meet again on Sunday as usual at Hon Ru Ri, 2 pm for 2.30 pm start.
