Wheathills Plantation - Blobhoblin, Spongeblob and Twinpeaks - 6th July 2014

The week appeared to have taken it's toll on some of the pack.  Double D and Stix both had headaches and Lethal Weapon had had 9 teeth removed and was forced to walk.  I saw more of Paperwork than I had done in a long time too.  He had hashed the A to B trail the day before (a particularly arduous trail, apparently) and was in recovery mode.  A pity really as there were loads of fish-hooks which the pack needed him to find before they did.
It was a very unusual trail in that it was laid in two parts.  There was the first bit, ending with the sweety stop, and there was a second bit taking us back to the car park via a little den in the woods that the little hashers were quite interested in.  In between, the most amazing thing happened:  My family and I bumped into the D family, the Croc family and quite a few other friends who had all come out for a lovely stoll through the countryside.  Can you believe the co-incidence?  All in the same place, at the same time, with the same idea of walking off Sunday breakfast. We proceeded very quietly, admiring the wildlife and taking in the beautiful, and seldom seen, scenery.
Fortunately, it only started thundering right at the end of the trail as we were circling up back at the car park.  I hid in the car and no-one paid their fines as it was raining too hard to hang about.  Remember to pay up next week, or you'll lose out at Christmas!
