The Vancouver Hash House Harriers Post Christmas & Pre New Year's Day Run,
Run 1683, possibly. 1415, Saturday, 29-December-2018

Forget drowned rats, the hare had to wear scuba gear to set this one. The rain fell in sheets, puddles became ponds and rivers that could be waded on Thursday were up 3M. Mr.P didn't even have to jump in the river - it came to him. Hands dipped in flour became massive misshapen maws. Then, at 1400 the rain ceased, the clouds sped away to the South and the Sun shone, wanly at first but warm enough for the cockles of my heart.

His Excellency Shaggarish, Banshee, Plunger, Captain Hymen Grinder, 1/4 Cup visiting from Mira Loma, Makes his own Gravy and Bouncing Boobs (sorry, this might be wrong but the bobbing was a distraction) from Salt Lake City, M'Alice, Beheader, Mountme, Dirty Hari briefly on the way home to bed, and Pylon at the On On On. This was an astonishing turn-out, but of course not undeserved.

We met where the Baden-Powell Trail crosses Old Lillooet Road, there was just enough parking for everyone - evidently the Hash Gods were with us, and... no one was lost; which means I don't have to come back on Tuesday.

At 1430 precisely, the hounds sped off to the North, diving into the bushes by the Old Shooting Range, down into the river valley complete with stream crossings, the odd twig or two, and a glorious view of the waterfall cascading out fully 10M from the high point. Then, along the river bank to the brand new suspension bridge replacing the old Twin Bridges, up the Baden Powell onto the bluff where 1/4 Cup was accosted by a woman demanding to know why he was wearing a skirt. A question not far from our own minds, and then by a series of ridge trails back down to Fisherman's, across the Lynn at the top of Riverside Drive, up the new steps and along the rough trails on the East side of the ridge and finally to the beer check tucked away in the back of beyond and out of sight of curious onlookers... The gift that only a potato can give was washed down with Czech, Slovakian, Dutch, Danish, and Chinese beers. Down Downs back at the cars led by Kapitan Jungfernhäutchens Muehle with the usual important transactions accomplished satisfactorily, and finally to the Maplewood for more beer.

Maybe Pylon will be setting the New Year's Day Hash?
On On!
