NSOM MEANDERING IN DUFFY’S FOREST

NBH3 RUN # 255

It must be that some people are afraid of rain/cold/windy weather, but if you run the Hash, none of this should worry you. And it did not worry 21 Hashers who turned up at Duffy’s Forest last Sunday to do justice to NSOM’s run. Before we ran/walked, I took stock of the arrange of vehicles parked there, and they were as varied as the people who drove them. And varied is the descriptor of Hashers. There must be a co-relation which needs a study there. So, at 16:00 hrs and we were advised to take one of the well-set trails and told we would be out an hour and 10 minutes. Oh, and to be careful of the fallen tree. (?). And well set the trail was, and a leisurely stroll it was also, as the hour and 10 minutes required to be filled meant that progress needed to be slowed down somewhat. But such a pleasant location and constant fire trails meant easy travel with no stress. It must be said (again) that Sydney offers the best bush trails only a few minutes drive from anywhere. Terrey Hills is a horsey area with large properties and lots of horse floats. It’s the roads that have the horse droppings. The properties are pristine. The run had lots af mud and horse dung to navigate, but no problem there, it was just the fallen tree which had me concerned, having been warned about it. Back to the start and chairs were the main order of the day. It is , after all, a sitting-down Hash, it seems. Tripod called the circle, the GM being missing again. I’m told he was out on his yacht for the weekend. I’ve never seen his yacht, has anybody? Have you been invited out on it, or even invited to come aboard for a beer? Or am I the only person who hasn’t been on it? Tripod makes a good RA/On Sec, dishing out the DDs while standing, no less. It was the Hare, No Shit On Me, who was thanked for her efforts, and Short Sheeter, who can’t tell the difference between Copra and Calici. And a thanks to Crumb from Calici for replacing his lost beanie. Good memory. Time then, for ham and cheese rolls with pickles to fill the void. Supplied by the Hare. The usual choice of beverages were available and Crumpet topped it all off with chocolate slices (?). We were restricted to 4 each. They should be illegal. Another fine afternoon enjoyed by a select group of friends with thanks to NSOM, Crumpet and those who supplied the alcohol. I never did remember coming across the fallen tree, did I miss something?
