Hare - Comes up the Rear
The start was hastily moved across the road, because it was a race night. The intended Wong Nai Chung Crescent Garden was closed in case some people peer through the bougainvillea and periodically see some horses running in circles - for free.
Under starters orders - 'follow Wong Nai Chung Rd back around the racecourse'. He forgot to say 'when you get to Causeway Bay you have gone too far so just go back and up Link Road and round to the stadium'.
Behind the stadium there was a check followed by another check on the left hand path going up to where the squatter housing used to be. This was T'd so it was back through the check to the previous check… ¿que? Do we do that ? It must have been some other hash's markings. More of that later. Quite a lot more in fact.
Up to the flat path before Broadwood Rd. Not totally flat though - there is one step. Hash crash. So people ask if you had a crash on the steps going up or down. Neither - on the level...
Right along Tai Hang and up Mt Butler Rd to Sir Cecil's Ride and on to the Wimps/Rambos split with the Rambos going left up through the pagoda.
Now this is where the wheels fell off the bus. Ages milling round at the temple looking for trail. Indy helpfully offered that this is where Comes up the Rear had set the ladies hash and did we think he might be reusing the route.
"Well yes Indy it does seem highly likely. Where does it go ?"
So we followed the only trail we found that kept on taking us back down to the original path and the W/R split. After several loops back down to the W/R split we got tired of doing that and decided to run along the Wimps thinking it must have simply been a Rambo loop. Until we came to the rejoin at the steps going down to Tai Hang Rd and the Rambos trail was coming towards us from the opposite direction.
On home down Bluepool. So half the pack stood around drinking beer waiting for the rest to get back, which in Bei's case was quite a while …
According to Castrato this is how it went after the W/R split...
Trail went up lots of earth and banks quite a long way. Finally up onto a catchwater and right along it for some distance. Then another open check next to some stairs - I went left up the stairs and got lucky. Up again via more and more shaggy the ground becoming more and more sandy.
Finally we broke cover near the top of Mount Butler and another check. I didn't get so lucky then and went up some considerable distance before I realized we should be going down. So down to Parkview, to the Shell station and then along Sir Cecil's Rise and down into the city back to the beer bins and a super shower courtesy of Inflatadate.
