It was business as usual last Sunday after we bade farewell to Rowdy and family the previous week. This weeks exploits were to be performed in Long Hai on the newly unfinished highway to the top of the bitumen road in Niu Dinh a superb trail discovered by Pekker and Slipper an essential duo in the V.T.H.3 diaspora some years back.The trail was remarked by Mismanagent's equivalent to a boy band, namely young Faulty Brakes, Cleaver, Mr. T and Boozer.
Registration took place in Cafe Uno as per usual when the weather took a turn for the worse, storm clouds had gathered and rain began to fall. The bus with 30 odd hashers headed northwards in a torrential downpour towards Ba Ria, it wasn't looking good to say the least however the Gods smiled on us and when it came to disembarking the weather had changed to a mere drizzle.
Now it was time to start todays climb with the age old instruction, follow the red ribbons if you go for a 50 metres and don't see any red, return again to the last ribbon and start again Mr. T issuing the directive.
Hashers young and old followed the instructions scarpering up the path, despite conditions being slippery underfoot and temperatures being ideal for hashing with cooling rain dripping from the branches in the forest paradise eventually everybody despite having crossed a stream in full torrent the promised land was reached at the parked bus.
We had a number of firsts this week, we had the first set of twins to join us in V.T.H 3 and of course we had the unfurling of our new banner. We thank H.B.O and Boozer for their input and it will now ready for our forthcoming trip to Cat Tien National Park.
SHOWTIME. Lord of the Rings commenced his weekly performance..new people were welcomed sinners were punished despite the frequent interruptions from motorbikes and cars everybody was catered for in our weekly circle which is the highlight of our hash along with the refreshments and banh mi all part of our Down Down and fun.
The light beginning to fade it was now time for returning to H.Q. eskies on board with one laden with beer for the journey back to be consumed in transit,music and everyone contented with their Sunday afternoon’s exertions. The now mandatory Pit Stop and Smoke break beside the Long Hai roundabout was welcomed by everyone. Twenty minutes later we were stashing the eskies away for the following week at Cafe Uno.
Next weekend is a Vietnamese holiday and we will run locally,please register early to allow us to calculate what is required for the run and today another perfect Sunday came to an end despite the rain.
