White Hart Exeter - Stix and Bollards - 13th October 2019

Most of the words this week written by Rocky.

Today's hash was in Exeter city centre outside the White Hart (where we went for Sunday lunch afterwards). It was raining when we arrived, and had been laid earlier that morning by a rather moist Stix and Bollards on their 18th wedding anniversary.  Talking of being moist, it was good to welcome Mildly Moist back to the hash.  We were a bit late setting off (11.20!) due to some parking issues!

  • The first thing that happened was a series of very slippery paths as we headed down to a swollen river on the quayside. Fortunately nobody hurt themselves but if anyone had slipped, it wouldn't have been nice!
  • There was nobody really to check this week - which made checking out the first long loop take longer than it should have done.
  • Cupcake decided that he wasn't ging to walk any more, so just sat down on the pavement!
  • Th trail cotinued around County Hall as the drizzle returned.  We crossed Topsham Road again, and headed back down towards the river, and had the sweeties stop in Belle Isle Park.
  • Son of the Bitz refused to eat any sweets!
  • After that we came to the suspension bridge. I thought it would be funny to move the cables around causing the bridge to wobble - which did work.
  • Then there was the long-short split that would have taken the longs across the flooded flood channel. Given the pace was slower than normal, we decided to all go short, but it looked like Woodpecker was going to do it. But then he decided otherwise, and the the hares took us straight back home.  Also skipping out the really long long that Bollards had set nearly up to the Double Locks! 
  • We had beers and crisps, but no fines since we had no Sheriff.  Then most of the pack went to the White Hart for Sunday lunch
Next week we're starting from the layby near the Haldon Grill (map).

The online vote for hare of the month was one by Puss and Boots for their hash in Bampton.
