The roughly seven check run took the pack up the road to check 1,
and then left and up again to a saddle on a spur of the Champa Devi
ridge, where we found check 2. Paper took us along the top of a mud
slide and down a slippery trail which most runners slid down. Holding
check 3 produced no sign of the walkers, so we continued to holding
check 4, the site of Duckbill's
duck attack. We didn't hang around there long and most watched Keeled
Over lead the pack up a steep trail. The rest continued along
a wide trail, through check 5, down a while, and then west for a long
run through Macchegaon and a couple more checks no one seemed to have
Meanwhile the walkers spent most of the afternoon watching the negociations over the cost of a rooster Balu had killed. Somehow Lao Lover, and his Lover, as well as their mutt, got away without punishment. Slowly the pack dribbled back to the chariots with Sock Sucker and Carrot Brain bringing up the rear. One wonders what they were up to out there.
The circle was a relatively orderly affair, thanks to Towed being away. Mr. Bhatta wasted a lot of our time, but his jokes were better than the average hash ones. People spent a lot of time removing leeches, the first of the season for most of us. The following Brown Bums received awards: Sock Sucker, Slow Drip, Sana, Kate, Apple, Kathleen, Lao Lover, Brian and George.
|Virgins and Visitors||Kathleen,
who is here from Annapolis, Maryland, to teach about private-public
partnerships in the water sector. Partnership in water-making seems
like an interesting concept, worth further Hash investigation.
Brian: Peace Corps Volunteer visiting from Ilam.
Slow Drip and Phulma, passing through to and from the Philippines.
T.R. Bhatta, originally from Baitadi but now living at Mata Tirtha. His jokes brought a quick end to the circle.
|Returnee||Don Clark, who was a SERIOUS hasher from 1984 through 1988, in the days when one could still ford the Bagmati downstream from Kathmandu. He and Connie will be here hopefully for a long time while he runs the U.S. AID office according to proper Hash standards. His four college going sons, whom we will hopefully meet in December, are living proof that it is wise to be kind to Hash Horrors.|
Over, Carrot Brain and Christopher
who are following Rani to England
for a visit.
Jedi who abandons us for the U.S. and running in the Rocky Mountains.
Grumblewald led a party of three
vehicles on a village tour on the way to the hash. He should have
known better than to follow hash incorrect directions. That was
really Stats' fault.
