Line Break - On-On Feet

Hey everyone! First time hasher here, feel free to call me De Imposter. First of all I must say that I had a really great first hashing experience. The trail was beautiful, the lime was great, and the beers at the end were a nice touch. I mean really, what else could a girl ask for?

Now before starting the hash, I knew that there were a few things that I would have to do in order to prepare for my experience. First of all, I knew that I would have to work on my fitness. I remember a friend of mine once telling me about his first hash experience where he was hunched over in the mud, completely exhausted, trying his very best not to vomit. This is about the time that his dentist, who is about twice his age, zoomed past him shouting condescending words of encouragement. Talk about embarrassing. Nobody, after all, wants to be THAT person passing out in the bush on their first run! I also knew that I would have to work on my beer chugging skills- the initiation rites of the hashing world, after all, are quite the thing of legend.

The one thing that I was totally unprepared for, however, was that I was about to be immersed in a foreign language, and to not understand this strange language would certainly lead to being totally and completely lost ‘in de bush’. As echoes of “on on” and “on off” boomed throughout the trail, some other unprepared newbie friends and myself tried to decipher the code. When we finally felt comfortable in the new lingo we sent one of our buds, Stray Kat, out to the front to give it a go. After loudly and proudly bawling out “On left!”, Stray Kat was met with many harsh stares and cut eyes from some of the senior hashers. We then retreated to the middle of the pack and decided to let the others deal with the whole “on on off” business. Maybe zoning out during the pre hash de briefing was not such a good idea after all.

All in all, my first hash was a great experience and I will definitely be coming back again sometime in the not too distant future. My advice for newbies would be to come prepared to have fun, go at your own pace, and don’t ever, EVER, wear new shoes. Consider yourself warned.

Hash Lingo

Virgins take note of the meaning of these signs!!!

  1. While on the trail CALL “ON ON” when you see bits of shredded paper/flour! It helps those behind/possibly lost hashers.
  2. “O” – check for the correct trail!
  3. “X” – you’re on the wrong trail! Go back to the check point and start again.
  4. “ON PASS” – to pass someone on the trail.
  5. “ON BACK” – on the wrong trail, you may have reached an “X“….turn back to the check point “O“.
  6. “On OFF” – you’re off the correct trail.
  7. When you are almost in you would see: “ON IN” pointing to the correct direction.
  8. For those who can’t keep up with the ‘3F’s’ (FIT, FAST AND FURIOUS) pack then just go with the ‘Backpackers’  (SMART) pack who just let them do all the work.>
