Hares - Fumio & Just Add Alcohol
Our all Nippon No-sagi were well prepared for today’s Hasshu. We found ourselves back at Pui Shing Park – scene of the (Odayaka-ni, Betsu-no) Motormouth “Kurashikku” run 7 weeks ago.
Yoidesu things were promised – although the No-sagi briefing outlining a “9.5km Rambo and 8.5km Wimps” drew a few gasps from around the group. “Plus some Sukuranburingu shiggy!” Winky Twinkie had a bit of a girn. “Ah am nae canty“ he grumbled in his best pro-SNP voice. Oh well, off we went, Gobi Lo having set off half an hour before the pack.
The first 2km or so of trail exactly mapped the Motormouth run – Hang Hau Village and up the stairs towards the ridge, Hopeless, Tequila and Lost In Translation leading the way, with Steve Holmes in close attendance (until Breon caught up!).
The first (of three!) W/R splits occurred at the (Akumeidakaidesu, Sore o youself o okonaimasu) MM “Check” just short of Clearwaterbay Road. This time there was an actual Rambo split, with markings, the hardy going over the top to meet the Wimps who contoured.
Cut right onto Clearwaterbay Road, and the headless chickens heading down the hill before Hopeless calls back Breon, Lost In Translation, Come Into My Tunnel and Platey down Ah Kung Wan Road. Past Steve Holmes’ house as Godzilla Buttfuk calls out “anyone want to buy a car, going cheap as I’m leaving Hong Kong for good in 3 weeks’ time?!”. Sorry – no sale mate!
Predicted Check takes us onto Silverstrand Beach and an Mezurashi-desu W/R split… Rambos across the sand, and rejoin the Wimps 200 metres further on at the steps! Another Check off the beach heads up the stairs past Silverstrand Mall and across down the steps to come out at Tseung Kwan O hospital.
Wai-Chee now leading the charge behind Breon, and the third split. Wimps stay right to head towards home, while the Rambos head into a construction site and a riverbed. Breon was found wandering around the riverbed while Hopeless and Tequila head up the water pipe and the ON2.
An Suguremashita but Sho-to route through the trees and into a small market garden area set up by the local villagers. Down the terracing stairs to the rejoin on Chiu Shun Road, and up over the bridge to the Jitaku-de and cold drinks.
Very well marked trail, a great job by the hares who followed this up with a bottle of sake to enhance our Down Downs in the Thai restaurant later on in the evening.
