Have your say-got an opinion? Give it to me and I'll publish and be dammed
Letter from Klingon
My opinion today is that Padre has either been partaking of the whacky backy or a young madam has been adjusting his running attire, which in his case amounts to very little.
Although I can not guarantee this report will contain the same level of prose as in the last report, which had Mme. Mouton (not the Dominatrix) waxing so lyrical and orgasmic, I will do my best to emulate their offering.
To set the scene.
Two virgin hares in the badlands behind Nice and an adverse weather forecast. Ideal for a Hash then.
Ann of Cleavage was wanting to stay in bed but because she and Shepherds Bush had promised both Padre and Smelly Pooh a lift, felt morally obliged to attend.
Here follows a brief description of the runners efforts to do justice to the Hares' dedication to ensuring all had an enjoyable day.
The run was once more delayed by those unable to follow directions or get out of bed in time.
Nearly 40 minutes after the stated meet time we eventually left the car park, with Padre chomping at the bit, cursing the antisocial behaviour, closely followed by Filip, who had set off at 0730hrs. to walk to the start and Perpetual Motion and Iron Lady who had been on the road for two hours. At least Perpetual Motion did not have to cycle all the way.
Out of the car park and turn right angles to the Walkers Trail to be confronted by a myriad of choices. Coco, adrenaline pumping, could not contain his enthusiasm and started to work his way to the front to lead the runners up the hill.
One or two wasted opportunities by the Hares as the trail split but the right choice was already correctly marked.
Put that down to either a lack of experience, or more likely the fact that it had been raining and the trail washed away. The two hares had spent all day Saturday tying orienteering marking tape to branches to ensure there was a trail to follow.
Once we reached the top of the hill the trail continued gently upwards, (So, not technically the top, before some smartass tries to correct me) but not at such a steep incline so as to inhibit running. Filip, Padre and Paedophil, stopping at regular intervals to commune with nature as the recent rainfall had transformed the forest floor into a multicoloured, mosaic tapestry of wild flowers and the view out over the countryside, stunning. I have been lead to believe there may even be one or two photographs somewhere attached to this report for you to gain some impression.
But not as impressive as the real thing though.
On up we continued, across the flat top and down into terrain previously Hashed about 10 -12 years ago. I do not know why we have not been back sooner as it is truly wonderful there. From here we headed towards the village of Balls Ache and then swung around the back to obtain a panoramic view of the cement works and quarry.
Filip pointing out his previous nights camp site on the other side of the valley. Quite some way away and an impressive distance to walk before the start.
Coco disappearing into the distance chasing after Perpetual motion, Sadist gasping for breath in close pursuit and the followers taking it easy admiring the view.
A startled local who was sitting minding his own business in the middle of nowhere was suddenly confronted by a group of runners inquiring if he had seen other runners. We quickly ascertained Perpetual Motion had turned off to the right and Coco had gone straight on. Regrouped, we headed forward, but at a slow pace, the flour and tape was proving impossible to locate when suddenly there it was in front of us. ONON we cried.
As we slowly made our way across the plateau a disheveled, out of breath, Coco caught us up. He kindly went back to look for us as we were not where he thought we should be. We had in fact missed a devious loop.
From here it was a short drop, down over the side of the hill and into the beer stop, to be met by the walkers who has ambled around the base, thus expending not even enough energy to warrant a packet of crisps ! That minor fact did not seem to deter them sufficiently to abstain from such calorific fare.
Although there was an observation of some competitive running here, it was missed by the Religious Advisor.
No Names ?
All together once more and enjoying the ambiance at the beer stop until our control freak starts us all off on the inward trail.
The runners ranks swelled by Jenifer No Name and Smelly Pooh, and later, the walker, Iron Lady, who somehow had managed to cross her wires and end up on the wrong trail. J.N.N said it was O. K. to run the second half as Paedophil was driving the beer car back.
Whatever could she mean ?
Some superb running country and better still downhill. We must have climbed higher than we thought on the first half. Coco, still full of adrenalin, was busy leading the way, until we reached the turn where the trail led home where he promptly disappeared, along with the trail markings.
Some confusion caused by Padre who was enjoying himself so much he tried to lead J.N.N., Filip and Iron Lady on a second lap. Fortunately, Sadist, at the finish enjoying his cold beer, was quite cheerfully shouting ONON, guiding the lost souls home.
About fifteen minutes after we had all finished a beaming Fairy Light entered the car park with his pockets full of red and white orienteering tape.
He had done the whole run on his own and arrived at the beer stop in time to see Paedophil driving off into the distance.
A very commendable first effort by our virgin hares, even more so considering the weather conditions and their need to tie the marking tape to branches.
The restaurant had a distinct Italian feel with more than enough food and plenty of wine. I recommend we put this on a list to return to again.
Thank you both very much our Virgin Hares; Andrea Previn and Coco.
P.S. Ann of Cleavage eventually admitted she was pleased she was emotionally blackmailed to attend and had a thoroughly spiffing time, high fives and all that American stuff.
I am getting worried about her; next she will be wanting peanut butter on her Jelly sandwiches instead of Marmite.
