Bowd - Strapo and Swampy - 17th June 2018

Where has the summer gone?  A second unseasonal hash laid by Strapo and Swampy - the last one with unexpected precipitation was the one in March cancelled due to snow!  It was pretty drizzly, but Strapo promised a trail shorter than his last one (the 6-miler at Otterton).  We headed towards the Bowd Inn, then down one of the footpaths into to woods, We ended up on the 'red route', where Stingray took a short cut, but face-planted into a bed of nettles.  A long loop followed, including a sweetie-stop that the front runners managed to miss. Quite a lot of confusion with marks on both sides, and arrows pointing to crosses... but we all managed to get back, although the sweets were missed!  The circle in the layby, with the usual fines, including Stingray, Twin Peaks (for falling) and everyone who didn't see the sweetie stop.

Then back to Strapo and Swampy's house for a BBQ.  'Divs' like Bull Bait and I didn't bring jumpers, so we were a bit cold.  The wood burner provided some heat, but the stench of smoke still hangs over me! Thanks to them both for the catering and hospitality!

Don't forget to Rate the Hash!

Next week's trail is at the Four Firs car park on Woodbury Common (map), hared by Woodpecker. Mrs Woodpecker is once again going to cook for us, and Woodpecker would like to know numbers. Please email him, brian.jwood@outlook.com if you are planning on going.
