Well there are shit runs and shit runs
The Hash from Hell, Noble Ring's Wong Tai Sin to Sai Kung ball buster and the Tai Tam 2 checks and 3 buses run, all come to mind as shit runs.
However this run was a shit run of a different kind. 18 hardy hashers eventually showed up for the 6.30 pm slow boat to Lantau and were joined in Lantau by Lili arriving on the fast boat 5 minutes later. After loads of instructions and reminders that this run had a twist, we set off along the front at Mui Wo towards the old hotel on the beach. A few crafty checks turned the pack around a few times before we emerged out from the old village at the back of the hotel on to the path along the beach. At one point it seemed that Barbie was in the lead walking smartly along in her open toed shoes.
At the end of the beach, we headed off uphill onto the path to Discovery Bay and all the Disco Bayites then said 'shit' we are going to Disco Bay. This was probably the first time that someone also stood in shit. It would not be the last.
On up the steps we went, to be met by a bunch of school kids out for a night time hike. Have teachers not got better things to do in their spare time? Anyway past the kids and dodging the cowshit we reached the pagoda at the top of the hill before the whole pack seemed to take the wrong trail down to the bottom of the steps and the T.
Two of our number, namely Adolf and Rice Mouth thought better of the T and continued on their way to Discovery Bay only turning back after it eventually got into their heads that they should be following flour and not cowshit.
The rest of the pack returned up the steps and found the proper trail along a shiggy path to the right. They also found the obligatory cow pats and so off we headed down to the Trappist Monastery and the boat to take us back to Mui Wo. After a few worrying minutes for Parkie, wondering where Adolf and Rice Month were and the thought of having to go out and look for them, two torch lights appeared in the gloom heading for the pier.
With Adolf and Rice Month back with us, we boarded Kamikaze's normal Disney work boat for the ride back to Mui Wo. Kamikaze also took his normal seat on the boat despite his shoes stinking of shit. Why didn't he sit somewhere else, to allow some other poor unsuspecting soul next morning the joy of standing in the remnants of his shit. Mind you so many people had stood in shit that there would be no safe place to sit next morning.
Anyway shit run or should I say good run with lots of shit.
