Welcome to Devon A2B H3 for hashing on Saturdays, once a month, usually first Saturday of the month. Join the Mystery Tour. Only the Hares and the Beermaster know the location of Point B. If you do find your way to Point B, you'll probably have covered at least 8 miles but with a couple of beerstops on the way. Transport will be arranged to get you back to Point A before nightfall.
We arrived in the White Cross Car Park to a flustered Larks,
not knowing if he was in the right place or not. The car park wasn’t the
largest ever and what with a burnt out car taking up some of the space we had
to be creative whilst missing tree stumps.
Circling up a little later than usual after waiting for TC
and SR to arrive, instructions were given and I volunteered to scribe this month.
Off we went out of the car park along a muddy track, this
was going to be a bit of a theme this month. Along we went until we found
a bit of a swing. Lets have a play we thought. pic supplied. Then I
thought, I recognise that yellow car - we’re back at the car park - is it a
beer stop already? But no, off we went out of the car park again and over
the road to continue the trail. Tenzing advised me as we ran past that
three more hashers had arrived after the off - Flem and Hardon and one hasher
he didn’t recognise, who could that be we wondered? We will have to wait
More trail followed - I never know where I am, but Strava
reckons I went through Sudbury at some point. Think this may be where we
found Larks for the first time. Still no sign of the mystery hasher.
Off we go again, more up than down in my mind. On one
of these downs we came upon some Alpacas being walked on a lead like a dog -
well, why not I suppose.
We found Larks again on a grassy bit by the road and the
shorts tucked in. No sign of the longs. Then, who was to appear,
but BellToll - the mystery has been solved! He had gone long after a late
start and not caught up in time for the first regroup, so went short second
time round and found us.
Off we went again on another short loop and found Larks
again. This was actually where the beer stop was supposed to be so the
sneaky shorts had a third stop and a few more sweeties (I really shouldn’t have
opened the cheddars at this point) and off we went again.
We found ourselves on Farway common, then on to a road for a
bit of a run in to the Hare and Hounds. We had arrived!
Excellent run thanks hares, and an excellent pub to finish
at. About a dozen of us stayed after the Down Downs to eat and it was
really good food - recommended.
Down Downs went to:
The hares, Brushoff, Tenzing and Grasshopper
The Virgins: Paul and Tequila Sunset (apologies to Pink 2
Lips who should have been included here, but I know her so well I forgot she
was a virgin!
Buzby: for visiting at the pub at the end, and not doing the
No Style - for missing a puddle
Flower Power - for not listening to the hares
Scouting and Hairy for listening but still getting it wrong!
