Line Break - On-On Feet

I arrived with my passengers in tow. Drove down a narrow road which descended to an area I have never seen before. Saw the ocean on my right and what looked to me to be a sub-station of some sort on my left. At this time I was ready to run as I haven’t ran in a few weeks due to injury, So I was rearing to get into it. But apparently, the “getting into it” part was going to be difficult as parking was at a premium. But, I have a very small SUV(Suzuki Swift) so I wasn’t worried and one of my passengers (Harperman) scouted a parking spot fit for me.

This hash had quite a big turnout, the bar was setup in a good area. People were laughing and it was time to go! After the instructions were read it was “On On!!” The pack went down the hill….I was doing my pre-run preparations…..stretching….looking at the ladies as they passed by……heckling Doon about his slow running style……asking Taz where Ache……reminding Ache that I brought the rum for us to drink and letting Mahashma know that I am here to run. So I have now started my trot……”On Back!!!” Hmmmm……I guess I will run into the forest as I see some paper…..”On Back!!” With now a steupssss I proceeded to run back to the “facility” I am now striding getting into my “where is Harperman!!??” Mode…..”On Back!!” AGAIN!! We eh start no running yet and iz three X we find! Well now I looking for trail…..I ran the way we drove in to hear a faint “On On” in the opposite direction…..with fear of another X I just kept going a bit till it was confirmed we were on…..by the spot I parked!! Now the area was so narrow that we can only go down one at a time…..and because I went on a wild goose chase I was late. So I had to stand and wait for this procession to go down the narrow pathway! At this time I am sweating and waiting patiently saying in my mind….”Harperman and Doon done gone already, to catch them will be a task!” So I did what any hasher would do in this situation…..went to the bar and ordered a “STIFF” rum and coke! After all….if I am going to wait…..lemme do it in style! So in the 15th minute and two rum and cokes later I am now going down this hill saying to myself…..I will overtake where I can and catch Harperman and Dune! But I was caught basically behind the walkers it became a walk and talk session. Overtook some people….but it was a little slippery and muddy so hard running wasn’t an option as the trails were too narrow for me to really stretch my legs. After coming down the first hill I stretched past a few people and then came to a point where I was running alone, made one check, it was another X….steupsed to myself cause I knew I should have gone the other way, but I think I just wanted to run. Ran past the some people congregating awkwardly and asked, “Is this a beer stop, rum stop or a water stop!!??” Got no answer so I kept moving. A few more turns uphill I saw another group gathered. At this time I am assuming that this is a beer stop, a rum stop or some kind of water stop cause more people are gathered, but apparently they were catching their breaths. This would be a solid 30mins into the hash. At the top of the hill was…….and I still couldn’t believe it….the On In!!! Already!!! At this time I said to myself, “Harperman and Doon must be drinking beers already….I am late!!” Ran in…..and proceeded to rehydrate with an ice cold Stag! Then Shawna came in begging for a breath, which I couldn’t spare. But unfortunately, it was the beginnings of an asthma attack and she didn’t have an inhaler. I made announcements looking for an inhaler but no one had. This meant that we had to take her for either an inhaler or emergency assistance. It ended up she needed both, so I wasn’t present for down-downs, but happy to report that Shawna is well and will be present at the next hash with her inhaler!! I would like to nominate Shawna for Poofter at the next hash……for leaving home without an inhaler and making me miss Down-Downs! According to Allan…..I could have received a free beer!!!

  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 ‘3S’s’ (SMART, SLOW AND SAFE) Pack who just let them do all the work.

There’s road works along the CRH & usual traffic on EMR heading into Valencia junction, so allocate sufficient time in your journey plan.

Important: Please arrive on time so that all hashers leave as one pack. Late comers should refrain from beginning the run due to the significant risk posed by the Trinidad dense green forests to the lone individual.

766 November 27, 2010 B3H3 Blue Basin, Diego Martin OSHA (Obsessed with Safe Hashing Activity)


Line Break - On-On Feet

Well I arrived at the Blue Basin run site in good time, i.e. only 5 minutes late, and not after the run had started. Not having hashed in quite a while, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. Had anything about the hash changed? Well, the Hash was called to order by the Hash Mistress (HM), and the hares gave some dotish speech about no hills and no mud (yeah right!) and what the virgins should and should not do, and we were off. And as soon as we take off, the HM, who was walking just in front me say “Oh sh*t! Ah have to get a scribe!” And she turn around and the first person she rest her eyes on was me. So guess what, I end up being de scribe! So on to describe de run…..

Anyways, the pack soon ran into a check. We going left or we going right? Well neither, as it turned out. We had to go down. So on down a steep hill, the first of many. I mean you must know that what goes down must come up! So you know is hill to come!

After that came a nice river bed, and I quite enjoyed splashing through the water every now and then. Then came the hard part! Uphill and more uphill. And talk about mud??? I ketch mih nennen trying to get up that hill. Remember I eh do this for a while. I slip and fall in the mud so many times, I lose count. And a very nice young man had to give my bottom a push a couple of times to get me up some particularly slippery slopes! Turns out he was a virgin, but if you ask me, he is a natural born hasher!

Did I mention the hill and the mud? Actually, I have to stick in a complaint here. I don’t know when hares will learn that it’s not a good idea to set a run with plenty hills when it’s been raining for WEEKS, possibly months! I mean, allyuh eh realize yet that it does get real slippery and dangerous when 50 to 100 people climb up or down the same hill? And then there was the garbage dump – broken glass and sharp rusted steel. But apart from the mud and plenty people slipping and sliding, it was an uneventful hash, although I’m sure there were some injuries.

I eh hear anybody cuss, I eh see anybody litter, I eh see anybody going in the bush to have sex or do anything else. All I see is a man peeing by the side of the trail. No, not the one who was nominated for poofter. Some other guy I never see before. I didn’t report him because I didn’t know his name. But he know who he is. And I really see Gerry coming back down the hill when he was supposed to be going up. Complaining that his calf was hurting him. And as the very observant HM noted, holding another part of his anatomy.

After we get up that long, steep hill, most people then proceeded down the wrong trail. We finally came to an ‘X’ WAY down the trail and had to turn back. Only on the way back did some of us notice a check, which was also some distance down the trail. Is that allowed, I asked myself? I think the hares succeeded in annoying lots of folks with this one!

Well I come in long after the front runners – because as ah say, I not as fit as I used to be. Not that I ever came in first, mind you! Found the usual liming, chatting and beer drinking going on. Then the HM hold up some keys and say somebody didn’t claim their keys. So I figure somebody probably get left in the forest. Well, I don’t know how that turned out, but I didn’t see anybody coming forward to claim the keys, and I didn’t see anybody going to look for any lost hashers. I just hope nobody was left overnight in the bush.

And so, on to the down downs. Hares cheered (or booed, depending on how you enjoyed the hash), virgins welcomed, poofter t-shirt awarded, it was back to liming and beer drinking. I didn’t stay for the lime at the bar, so somebody else will have to report on that. But all in all, I must say, a good hash. And I discovered (to my relief??) that it was the same old hash. Some things never change!

Michelle's Mess

Run No. 766 – 27th November, 2010                                                   

Run Site: Blue Basin, Diego Martin

B3H3

Blue Basin… hills, rivers, mud, bandits, rain, clearly, you either had to be stupid or a hasher or both to run through this area. Recognizing this, the Hares – 3 Hoes and 3 Bitches aka Nico, Andre, Rousdhie, Kristian, Eggie & Pradeep, urged an early start, 4 p.m. and after squeezing as many cars as possible into the tight parking area, led the pack off for what was to be the first of many slippery up and downhills. The usual SCBs like Enrique and Gerry, found some fictitious reasons to cut short the run, while the hashers with real balls enjoyed the mountainous terrain. Good run guys.

The afterlime was in full swing when we decided to quit while we were ahead, in other words, the lime moved to the bar in Diamond Vale, a much safer spot to be sure. Most hashers were content to buy their BBQ diners, but not so, Dooks & Gerry who bought hotdogs from the nearby grocery and grilled them on a vendor’s pit, much to the man’s surprise. Apparently, business was so good they’re now thinking of moonlighting.

And so it was, the lime continued, many beers were drunk and a good time was had by all.

 On On

Virgins: Welcome and hope you come again soon: Marie, Sojun, Noel, Lalchan, Gordon, Christopher and Chris

New Shoes: Vanessa

Poofter Award: Upset because someone else set a run in a hilly area, Doon, the original mountain goat, left his shoes home so wouldn’t have do the run; Gerry, turned back halfway complaining his calf was getting hard while holding his cojones,., he’s either missing a leg or he doesn’t know his calf from his cojones. Roushdie, a hare, for gross dereliction of duty, neglected the pack for the entire run to look after his girlfriend Noel, and Simon for peeing on the trail and not washing his hands after even tho surrounded by water.. eeeww!

The Winner: Roushdie, got his down down on his knees and a barrel of cold water over his head for being a pussy about putting on the poofter tshirt.
