Exmouth - Wobbly and Oddbitz - 19th Sept

Image
Hot Hot Hot! 5.5miles for the Longs with a 3 and on trail. Laid in flour and (when you can find it) Green chalk. Tampa, Mad Max and Brillo missing from the pic (apparently got lost!!) Great fun running around the Muff and having the local FB page thinking we were after there dogs or pikey's eyeing up there out of date curtains 🤔. One even suggested we should use different markings!! Doughnuts!!!! 🍩 lovely BBQ afterwards and much thanks to our hare Sandra Ritchie for the trail. The food was cooked to perfection by the best BBQ'er in town. Onon to next week from Pynes Hill, Exeter EX2 5SE

Double Locks - Stix 'n' Speedy - 5 Sept 2021

Image
Today's trail was laid by yours truly and Speedy. We welcomed back Bloody Mary who hasn't hashed with us since 2005! I'd like to say that she doesn't look a day older...  (actually I want hashing with CoE then so I wouldn't know).  The trail started with by crossing the canal and a loop around the fish ponds. A long took the FRBs across the old sports field and close to the development of the new station.  Then back across the wibbly wobbly narrow bridge, and around the allotments, another long loop, before going across the flood channel and a sweetie stop tucked in close to the river in the woods.  From here I tried to cut Coffin and family short by apparently trying to send them straight across the river.  But the rest of the pack went across the suspension bridge and in to Belle Isle park. Speedy laid a long loop here, which combined with a fish-hook meant that the longs (Paperwork, Wide and Bollards) got very confused - no change there, and it slowed

Kingsteignton - Wide Receiver - 29 August

Image
The last trail of the summer, and we finished with a garden tea party to celebrate Wide's 45th birthday. A good turn out too for a bank holiday weekend. Speedy opened the circle for trail 1013 (prime number!) - a rare chance for us to see him on a Sunday since he's been working! Good to see Blue None and Zara joining CoEH3 for the first time. Karen (with pooch) also joined us as a relatively new hasher and Exeter virgin. Plus Hobbles-with-Huskies brought along Rachel. If that wasn't enough, Woodpecker brought back Klenchi, Nearly-Done and 'Sam' (and dog). Anyway it was hot, and the first half of the trail took us around the houses of Kingsteignton was suprisingly hilly.  A long-short split without any marks on the long was an interesting 'feature' of the trail! Needless to say, we went one way, then the other, then gave up and rejoined the short. Put the longs to the back of the back though I suppose! The regroup and sweetie stop were next to the toll House

Blackborough Woods - Sorepoint and Paperwork - 22 August 2021

Image
Lots of narrow lanes to get to this week's trail, but much better if you go the other way. That's what I learnt anyway from today's expedition! Much easier via Honiton than via Cullompton. We had a visitor from Taunton, Woody, who consistently referred to people she knew called Yvonne and Tony. No idea who they were. The trail was beautiful, through the ancient woodlands and moss laden soil beneath our feet. And a good hilly 4.5 mile route, and most of us checking the wrong way. Spocky was taking it easy, so recovering from last week's little accident. So I found myself often leading the trail! The only down side were the longs, which normally looped us back to earlier on in the trail... And one was just a very steep long downhill with a haha! Supprisingly muddy too. The hash circle was all about death... Well the smell of it anyway. Clearly something rotting in the bin bag hanging on the fence. Plus Spocky told us all about the Autumn Gathering...

Stoke Woods - Blobby and Peaks - 15 Aug 2021

Image
Today's trail was short but not easy! We were honoured to have our President in attendance and Strapo returned after over 18 months (and it was his birthday!).  Spocky returned with a bump after his summer holidays. He took an impressive slide down a bank after trying to manage the decent on two feet.  It didn't end well. Let's hope he's recovering, and making the most of XBitz's love and attention! ;-) The trail took us around the outskirts of Stoke Woods initially, using narrow paths, and sometimes no paths at all! Lots of low branches to avoid (not a problem if your name is Twin Peaks!).  We managed to short cut our way to the first regroup, but were soon sent back the way we should have gone. Obviously the hares have a fish-hook fetish as we were never more than 10 metres from one. And then there were HaHas and back checks to enjoy too! We skirted along the edge of the paint balling centre and then, in a state of disorientation, emerged on to the main track for
