A select group met at the Caravelle this week with more joining at the Circle of Death . Drives Me Nuts was waiting patiently at the D2 pick up when it dawned on him that something must be wrong. After a quick chat with the driver he jumped on his motor bike and headed off the the A point as any true Hasher would. Low Maintenance fared less well having turned up at the Circle of Death but failing to find the Hashers she was forced to abandon her attempt to join this amazing afternoon in Binh Duong. The trail as ever was beautiful with trails through shaded backwaters, across man made ditches, along luscious riverside paths and past bananas and Bamboo. Many were nostalgic remembering the infamous run 666 in the same location, and the unforgettable naming of Katoy Boy at the old Sugar refinery where we started and finished. Some of the walkers decided that the carefully planned route was not for them, so they followed their noses and completed the first half of the run backward. Luckily they were not following the Chinese navigation system in the new Volkswagen that had been displayed at the HCMC motor show this week end or they would have discovered that they were in China. Gobbler lost all faith in the Hare when he declared that they should go left when the paper was clearly going to the right, Shithouse followed like a sheep to the slaughter and they both regretted not taking her advice. The rest of the walkers had a much more productive time, For Rent acquired a baby who had been abandoned in the middle of the track. The reluctant mother was soon relieved of her burden by Wanker Banker who had spent the morning begging for a baby just like the one that was found. Serendipity indeed, we wish her many sleepless nights.
Gobbler was impressed that she had actually managed to do a Saigon Hash without getting wet and gave the run a score of -15. Inspector Gobshite felt there were too many animals on the walk, and gave a score of -4. In and Out was pleased to have lost the walkers but upset that she had accidentally stumbled upon the runners, and Fukcofee had paid the price for not including “doggus not piss on us” as part of the prayer. The overall score was -9.5.
The Virgins for this run were Jonathan from South Africa who came with Broken Seal, Thuyet who came with In and Out, and Nhien who came with Binh There. The visitor was Jasper from Sweeden who came as part of his sex tour. The Returnees were For Rent, Linh and Happy Flasher.
Peckerhead was sporting a lovely T shirt that stated “It’s so nice on the Ice” and so the Hash obligingly iced him. Broken Seal was charged with almost doing what Boris had promised but failed to deliver when he nearly threw himself headlong into a ditch during the reccie. Sloe Gin was then called in and charged with being an overachiever. She completed a 35 km run on Saturday in Dalat as a warm up for the much tougher challenge of the Saigon Hash on the Sunday.
Finally the British were called in and charged with delusions a grandeur, haven't they realised yet that they will never rule the world again? Luckily there was a South African present to remind them of their tendency to fall at the final hurdle.
Then it was back on the bus and a quick trip back to Saigon with many Hashers lost on the way back. The On On was once more generously catered at O’Briens where the remaining Hashers proceeded to put the world to rights
That's all for this week.
Sexy Eyes signing off.
