The day dawned sunny and mild and the Hashers met on the road outside Breathless abode – not being sure of the address they assembled on two driveways, covering two bases to be sure.
Breathless emerged, pointed down the hill and yelled on-on. Off we went, down towards Burnt Bridge Creek deviation, most chatting flat out as usual. Old Hand, getting ready for her Coast to Coast walk decided she needed to join the athletes, Penile Dementia wound up his brace and took off at a trot, you’d never guess Mongrel was a knee replacement survivor. Venerable disappeared over the hill into the wild blue yonder. Crumpet was lost without Darwin to look after (still in the Middle East-what a man). There was plenty of parkland and lots of hilly bitumen with enough checks to keep us together most of the way. A good scenic trail, Breathless’ favourite walk we were told. It was a perfect distance as the sun was pretty low as we made our way back to the bucket and the warmth of Breathless new Bunnings Burner.
Stormwater, Crumpet and NSOM got busy in the kitchen heating the grub prepared by Breathless – delicious pumpkin soup and chilli con carne – whilst the bucket was hammered outside in the cold. When the on-after was called the food disappeared like I’ve never seen before. Everyone came back for seconds and very last scrap was eaten – well done chief, you and Robin Hood could hire yourselves out!
