The bus left the Caravelle at 2 pm leaving all late comers wishing they had been more prompt. There was a small enthusiastic group which was added to as the bus passed through District 2. The hares this week were I Choked Linda Lovelace and Sexy Eyes and they had prepared a beautiful virgin trail. It included tapioca fields, scrubland and cashew, pomelo, eucalypt and rubber plantations. The experienced of the bamboo tunnels were enhanced by the sweet scents filling the air from the adjacent free range pigs. Cows, chickens and dogs were all safely negotiated although the ants proved more problematic, they were especially keen on the taste of Cockaleaky. Ben also experienced an ant attack although it was felt that this was his own fault as he missed the ant warning due to running with headphones. The weather provided perfect conditions with a downpour in the middle third trail cooling everyone off and providing some glorious mud to play in, Frederick took full advantage of this. Gobbler had stayed with Linda all the way round but still managed to lose the trail, luckily the Apache skills of Tootsie Robinson soon had them back on the right track. She gave the run a score of -17. Big Mac was very impressed with the walk, identifying the territory as good with plenty of shade. He also had lots of fun with the ladies on the way round. He gave a score of -10, making the overall score -13.5.
The virgins on this run was Ben from the USA who came thanks to the efforts of Tootsie Robinson and Frederick from Vietnam who came with his mother. The returnees were Big Mac who was in Newcastle, Sloe Gin who was globetrotting and Ing who was raising Frederick.
The circle then discussed politics. They were very impressed with the progress that Trump is making with building his virtually impenetrable wall which can only be scaled by 8 year old children. However they felt this achievement may have been overshadowed by Boris Johnson's proposal that all those with mental health issues should be neutered.
At this point the heavens opened again and the Hashers headed back to Saigon to get warm and dry.
That's all for this week.
Sexy Eyes signing off.
