Welcome to Devon A2B H3 for hashing on Saturdays, once a month, usually first Saturday of the month. Join the Mystery Tour. Only the Hares and the Beermaster know the location of Point B. If you do find your way to Point B, you'll probably have covered at least 8 miles but with a couple of beerstops on the way. Transport will be arranged to get you back to Point A before nightfall.
Shat Nav and Zombie from a car park in the woods near
Quite a small but perfectly formed group of hounds:
Big Bird, Big Foot, Chunky, Cow Pat, Dynamo (who found the
car park without going to Mars and back), EJ, Man Pig (who was early – can you
believe it!), Meavy Maid, Over shot, Paperwork, Rise and Shine, Shortie,
Sorepoint and Tear Arse.
The view from the front (Paperwork):-
Beaut day but a bit windy – ahh, the hares had thought of
that and kindly provided us with woodland to shelter from it.We zigzagged around to make sure we saw every
tree.More woodland after a short
regroup in another car park but unfortunately the windbreak wasn’t to last as
we headed out into open fields and the sweat turned cold.The hares sneakily kept us on our toes by big
variations in the distance to the first blob of flour.Often Meavy Maid, Over shot and I all came
back to the various checks, shrugged our shoulders and went back down the same
trail to look further for the blob.
The view from the back (Sorepoint):-
Was feeling very unfit after six weeks lounging around in
India, so was a bit of a shock to the system setting off through the woods on
an extremely windy day.The sun was out
and we gradually made out way to the top of the hill through the trees to a
fabulous view from the beacon.Back down
again and some frog watching in the pond.Luckily the fit buggers in the front were checking it all out for us, so
we just plodded along behind.Shat Nav
doing a good job of making sure he’d not lost anyone off the back of the
trail.First beer stop was very early on
and I disgraced myself at the second bellowing over the fields that the beer
had run out.How was I to know I was
standing in front of a silent order convent?No curtains twitched, so I think I got away with it.Anyway, after a little look at the notes in
the church off we went again.This last
section was longer than the first two put together and certain of us were
really struggling come the end.Especially difficult was passing a pub.Yes, you heard me correctly – we PASSED A PUB!Shat Nav assures us it was closed and he had
no choice, but still – I’m sure it’s against the rules somewhere.We eventually finished up at some pub that
I’ve forgotten the name of already, but somewhere in West Ogwell I
believe.Very nice run, lovely day, even
if my legs didn’t agree with me.
Chunky was stitched up into being RA for the day and awarded
down downs to:
The Hares – Shat Nav and Zombie and Shat Nav also for having
to look at the map as we went round to check which way to go.
Dynamo for washing her feet in the sink.
Sorepoint for saying – come this way it’s less slippery,
only to fall on her ar*e the next second.
And I think there was one more, but I can’t for the life of
me remember any more – sorry!
