No apologies for any mistakes or omissions
All current, past and future Hashers and their guests are welcome to the rooftop bar “In Saigong", 29 Huynh Thuc Khang St, District 1, above the photo camera shop. To make the best of the happy hour at In Saigong, we start at 5 pm, every Wednesday.
Location: Ly Son
The Hashers assembled at bus station at 18:00 ready to set off on their adventure. Many were late due to the traffic and Mr Purple and Bao failed to navigate the chaos and had to be collected on route. As they had the beer this caused much anxiety for the Hashers, they were overwhelmed with relief when the beer was finally on the bus only to discover they were banned from drinking it. No beer on the bus is not something that they want to become accustomed to. There was also no Sloe Gin on the bus as she had decided at the last minute that Sidney was more appealing that Ly Son. This was made up for the fact that the bus was VIP and the Hashers felt like royalty as they sped towards their destination. Two meals, 15 h, many km and much honking later they arrived at the bus station at Quang Ngai, transferred to a much less comfortable carriage, picked up a forlorn Turn Off at the side of the road and headed off to be educated. Yes that's correct a cultural experience on the Hash. Everyone was united in their horror at the events that had occurred at Son My, more familiar to westerners as My Lai.
Then it was On On via minibus, ferry and electric car to food and rooms on My Son island. Finally, 21 h after boarding the bus, the Hashers assembled for the start of the live run. The live hare for the run was Tug Muay Dong, with Down Easy keeping a careful eye on the walkers. The run report was given by I Choked Linda Lovelace who didn't think he had ever run through so much garlic before being informed it was onion. He felt that the hare had put a lot of effort into providing a lovely trail in virgin territory, and had even ensured the spiritual well being if the Hashers providing a temple at the Hash Holt. He gave a score of 1. The walk report was given by Emily who described it as lacking in walking, replacing this with lots of climbing up and subsequent sliding down. She did think the trail was beautiful and awarded it 9, giving an overall score of 5.
The visitor for this away hash was Deaf Lesbian from Washington DC and the returnee was Emily who has been getting busy to earn money so that she could come.
The Vietnamese were then thanked for the National Independence Day Holiday celebrating the Frexit of the French in 1945. Unfortunately the French forgot they had Frexited and had to be forcibly ejected after they tried to reenter. The British are hoping that Brexit doesn't go the same way.
I Choked Linda Lovelace was then charged for not knowing his garlic from his onions, having failed to correctly identify the red onions that were being grown in all the fields he ran passed.
Tug Muay Dong was then charged with giving the Hashers expectations beyond their station. Having travelled on a VIP the bus and the ferry they are expecting this every week. The Hash bus might need an upgrade.
Sexy Eyes was then charges for getting the Hahsers over excited with her comment that everything tastes better with nuts. This was followed up by a charge by I Choked Linda Lovelace who felt it was very unfair that Kick Arse was allowed to sit on her knee when he was not.
Next Vy was charged with being too small for the hash stats, every time Shithouse tries to find her he fails.
Turn Off was then charged as he had arrived early at the correct bus station, had breakfast, then decided to walk 1 km to a different bus station, meaning that he ended up lost in Quang Ngai.
The hares were charged as Tug Muay Dong was caught because Down Easy was busy taking minor detours in an effort to walk the walkers off the cliff. Despite being charged with being lost the walkers always knew exactly where they where they were supposed to be.
Down Easy was charged with impersonating a thief. Stevie Blunder left him a bicycle but because he didn't pick it up before Stevie left the security guards thought he was trying to steal it. Even the presence of the non-resident Fukcoffee couldn't persuade the security guards that he was an honest citizen. It seems he needs to find himself a resident to sweet talk.
The English were then charged as it appears the school teachers have been busy teaching all the teenagers how to masturbate. It’s no wonder the English are such a bunch of wankers.
Then Deaf Lesbian was up on a couple of charges. Most people won’t even venture onto the streets of Vietnam with both ears working, he can't hear anything but braves the roads, calmly running up the middle with trucks behind him futilely honking. This had also led to a certain amount of jealousy amongst the Hashers who had endured a night punctuated every minute by the blaring of a bus horn. Deaf Lesbian had also been blissfully unaware of this.
Finally it was time for Tuong to be named, suggestions included Lies On Her, Fiery Eruption, 40 kg Chicken and Drive My Dong. all of these were rejected and Drives Me Nuts was initiated into the Hash in the traditional fashion .
The night was then spent eating drinking and conversing on the beach. The next morning it was off up a Volcano before heading off for a swim on a different Island before heading back to the mainland. At My Khe a sad farewell was bade to those heading back to Saigon. The remaining Hashers enjoyed the beach, slept on the hardest mattresses in the world and then headed back to Saigon by plane the next day.
Apparently there was a Hash in D1 for those not brave enough for a whole weekend of Hashing. How that went we can only guess.
That's all for this week.
Sexy Eyes signing off.
