LSW 1568 Deepwater Bay
I arrived 12 mins late (according to the hare!) for the run…….(lost in traffic jams and running around looking for taxis that were all ‘out of service’)! I asked Sweaty for any little hint about the direction and all I got from him was a malicious smirk! Hmmm….Thanks! so off I went hoping that some thoughtful hasher (an oxymoron I know!) had marked the checks! Lucky for Piss Perfect that I was late as a minute into the run I found him lost……he had been running up and down the same green leafy section for the past 10 minutes, from the checkback back to the road…..to the checkback back to the road saying that there must be a path in here somewhere! He admitted to me that he had previously been lost on the beach section for 5 minutes! He was delighted to see me ….little realizing that now there were 2 headless chickens well at the back of the pack! ‘What fun this is going to be!’ I thought to myself!
We found the chalk up Deepwater Bay road…..the same road where I had previously set a run so I arrogantly thought that now all was well as I knew where we were going….Up to Blacks Link!?? Wrong! Up the road we kept going until I hit a checkback near the junction with Nam Fung Road! The other headless chicken with me this time was now focused and saw the chalk arrow that I had run over that took us down stairs to another road! Now I had no idea where we were going! (down Deepwater Bay Drive, through the Shouson Hill tree nursery across the Aberdeen Tunnel entrance...) Luckily chalk had been dispensed sufficiently so the path was now well marked ……
Until we got to a small kampong section off the highway and found confusing markings….an On On that was crossed out and an arrow down a lane that was crossed out and T’s and a checkback and no arrows that led anywhere! Obviously some kid had been mucking around with the chalk, f**king up the marking I thought, reminiscent of Sholto doing that on Macau Drunk’s Lamma run!…… Wrong again! I later found out that Sweaty had been the ‘naughty kid’, as he got to that area, marked the way and then couldn’t find a path that led to the shiggy section at the back, so crossed them all out and went some other way that no one ever found,… Luckily we all had a Guardian Angel, in the form of a ‘little Chinese lady’ who literally grabbed us, pointed us around her ‘house’ through her garden running in front of us showing us the way! She spoke better English than my kids… she said ‘your logos’ as she pointed at a chalk arrow which got us back on Sweaty’s path! Piss Perfect was so impressed by her running ability and directional knowledge that he offered her money to lead him on the rest of the run…. if she could just slow down a bit!
So then we were on an excellent shiggy uphill path that lead to a bigger hill…… still no idea where we were, (above Nam Fung Road…) onto a catchwater….. a trail, that led to a road (Nam Fung Road) and then the final On Home down the trail leading to the Victoria Recreation Club via the golf course, coming across Lost In Space who was assisting Hicky Slut down a slippery slope ….as well as Bondie who was ensuring that Oh Sucker didn’t get lost!
A great run! And great fun……. Well done Sweaty….. And well done to the Guardian Angel who saved us all from being ‘Lost’…..

A to A run. Wimps and Rambo option.
Queen’s Pier at 6:50 for 7:00 departure, not 7.10pm ! The boat will leave at 7pm…. if you are later than that you'll have to ring Indy 6713-2023 or Strap On 6804-7240 or Boilers 9162-1428 to find out where the On On is.
This is the last day that Queen's Pier will be in use before boats have to use the snappily titled Central Pier 9
