Up, Up and Away in a Beautiful Balloon, except there was no balloon. There was however the hot air, plenty of it, with a hint of a breeze at the [400m] mark above sea-level! The run started at Macau Ferry Terminal and basically wound its way up and up through Mid-Levels with some tricky checks and check backs to keep the pack together, until we reached the piano path Wimps and Rambos split. I'm afraid I Wimped out with Swine Sucker but still ended up going up to the Peak, then further up the Governors Walk to the very top and then down to Barge Poles Palacial Pad with Pool. As I had a conference call at 9.00 pm I quickly changed and jumped in. Delicious.
And then it was over to my co-hare Slippery Edge to interview the Rambos.
Only a crazy person would set a run starting in Central and finishing on the Peak, and an even crazier person would set it starting from the Waterfront and finishing on Mt Austin! So I was curious to find out people's reaction and whether the Hare's life had been spared. Knowing my co-hare was on a conference call from 9:00pm, I decided to stay on the no 15 bus, which was taking me homeward after a tense hockey match against the Hippos, and take-over the joint responsibility of doing the write-up. Macau Drunk had volunteered to do this for me, so just as well I made it there as he was nowhere to be seen, perhaps a fallen victim of the extreme altitude change experienced on the run.
As a local resident I was not overwhelmed by the opulence of the abode where the On On was and with beer in hand immediately set to the task of interviewing the Rambos.
- So Gobi Lo how was it? - Oh it was tough.... After coming off High West I couldn't believe the trail was going up again, you know, through the Pagoda at the top of Victoria Peak.....
- Shiggy GaGa, enough shiggy for you? - Don't know I did the Whimps......
- Park 'n' Shop, did you do the Rambos - We've been up here a lot recently, you know with the Ladies...... (Not sure if I'd equate them to similar experiences myself)
- Gai Tai, what did you think? -..............(panting noises only)
- Shake Your Booty, care to comment - Poor thing he hasn't got his breath back yet... but in his defense he did run 2km to get to the start on time.
- ADWD, how are you feeling after that? - Are you set for our lunch on Monday?.......... (obviously took the whole run in her stride)
- Smelly Twat, good run? - I chose a bad night to do the Rambos for the first time ever!
So overall no more complaining than usual, and future hares should not be deterred from setting a run which is on average UP!

Last night's LSWH3 "Independence Day" run from ground zero to the predicted High West for the Rambos, and onto Mount Austin finish, courtesy of host Barge Pole. Well marked trail by hares Chatroom & Octopussy.
Red is Denvy, Rambo, yellow the poorly (excuse) Hopeless.
Denvy GPS craps out around 1km to find signal again to record her blatant shortcut via Lyttleton Road and Oaklands Avenue with Hopeless and Brazilian Buttslap blazing trail up the stone steps as FRBs, followed closely by TVM and Legally Blonde. Majority of the pack follows Ms Lo off trail, shocking behaviour.....
Oddly enough the Rambos elevation gain record says +741m, whereas the Wimps was +1,229m, go figure.
10.08km for the long and 8.33km for the short.
PS - one pair of child's size Mizuno's (size 1 !!) left at the run site. Sticky says not hers, and Bobbledick couldn't do a Cinderella on them so claimants please let me know.
