Hares: Secs, Mr.T, Boozer
Hash Flasher: Tiger Tom,
As usual we meet at Uno Coffee for registration where we are informed to make our way to Paci Bia Hoi where we will start the run. Once we have reconvened Boozer, tells us to walk to Vi Ba via Le Ngoc Han where Mr. T will relay the rest of our instructions.
With a spring in our step we make our way through the streets of Vung Tau until we turn off to the left at the end of Le Ngoc Han street and climb up the steps to Vi Ba. Once we have all caught up with each other, Mr. T, proceeds to deliver the rest of the chalk-talk. Follow the Vi Ba road until we come to a temple where we will head off to the left and follow the power lines to the top of the mountain, then follow the red ribbons until we come out again on Vi Ba. Go back down Vi Ba and then make our back to the Bia Hoi the same way we came.
So, On-On, we go, and it soon becomes apparent that this is no easy trail. The steep road up to the temple is already an arduous task and there were a few incredulous gasps from our Hashers as we left the temple road and began the near vertical ascent following the electricity pylons. It’s a rocky climb, luckily some kind soul has installed guide ropes to pull ourselves over the larger boulders.
As we reach the top, a sense of satisfaction overwhelms us as we finally emerge at the perimeter of Ho May Park - the perfect spot to take a seat and breath in spectacular unfettered view of Vung Tau. Recovered, and realising the hardest part if the trail is now complete, we follow the red ribbons into the forest. The trail takes us across the top of the mountain and affords more spectacular views until we are back on Vi Ba and walk back to the Bia Hoi.
Back at the Bia Hoi we are treated to a veritable feast of delights all washed down with copious amount of Fresh Beer. The perfect end to an arduous local trail.
