Dawlish Warren - Wide Receiver - 26th January 2020

Image
After last week's coldest hash of the winter, we had the wettest hash of the winter today.  It really was miserable as we arrived into the car park at Dawlish Warren.  All the hats and coats were out, and our hare - Wide Receiver - was one of the very few in shorts.  It was good to see Cums to Soon and Just Brett (no official name) back for 2020, and No-Name "Alex" returning again. 
Bollards greated the pack as Grand Mattress, and was about to set us off when Woodpecker arrived. But we were all getting too cold to wait!  The trail took us back under the railway line, and then left through the car park.  A check saw us change direction, and   onto the South West Coast path, which after a couple of fish hooks, and Stix emptying his baldder (Tight Lips didn't have to look), we got ourselves onto Exeter Road just before Dawlish. Then over the crossing, and a hilly long-short split led us to the park land just above the leisure centre for the sweetie stop. Possibly the mo…

Stoke Woods - Blobby and Twin Peaks - 19th January 2020

Image
It was a cold day - I guess the coldest City of Exeter hash this winter.We decided not to wait for Spocky becuase it was too cold.

We ran about 10 meters before reaching the first regroup. The longs ran up a bank and then stayed high on a particularly slippery bank, before sliding back down to the shorts.

The whole pack, inlcuding the hares, managed to accidentally missed the next long short. And then the Bitz's, Tampa and Woodpecker appeared - apparently they had got stuck with closed roads.

Several fishhooks and regroups held the front runners back. And then we jumped over a stream before climbing a steep bank where Stingray fell over and slipped back down, and Splat took about fifty attempts to get up (with her dad shoving from the rear).  See video from Blobby.

Soon after, a sweetie stop, with fudge, watermelon thingies, and some fancy oreo-bicuits for the fussy ones.

After that there was a fallen tree to negotiate.  Twin Peaks mounted it, then excalimed "it wasn’t this w…

Beare - Sore Point and Paperwork - 12th January 2020

Image
This week's trail was number 969 and a joint hash with Taunton.  And for once CoE weren't completely out numbered.  It was a cold, windy morning, and it was raining - at least in the layby. One we left the layby it seemed to dry up, and then when we returned again on the on-home, it started again.  Weird. 
Sore Point and Paperwork were our hares, and they had the orange t-shorts on - hooray!  A bit of hash-confusion at the start as we sent off up the footpath that would eventually take, but we had to go back to the layby and up a different path to get there.  Woof Woof's foot got tangled in a bramble and ended up looking very comfortable in the undergrowth!
It was an extremely muddy trail, and 90% of it seemed to be up hill.  Once we got to the top - we seemed to keep on going!  There was a single long-short split, which once completed, led us to the sweetie stop.  But no sweeties - mulled cider (made by Paperwork) and cheesy feet (made by Sorepoint) instead.  All the kids…

In the circle he told us that it was going to be a very muddy trail1 on onTampa was lateWe were told that last week Bullbait and Wide receiver licked each other in the sauna, to test for moisture.Stix fell over and did a commando roll in the mud, he said “it was like a pillow,” he then offered bollards a hugWe had fun going through the forest full of mudAt the sweet stop we saw Tampa in the distance and thought he had missed the sweet stop, his excuse was “, I needed to wash my hands,”We ran through some more mud before reaching a Long Short split, where the longs did 2 loops around the surrounding fields Back at the car park we enjoyed mince pies as well as refreshmentsFines went to Stix for falling over, Bollards for asking how many on on it was, Child catcher twin peaks and Itsy bits for going for a wee, and Tampa was late
