The directions to the upcoming run are so very very long that Humble Scribe is quite happy to make this missive -- her last for this tenure -- a short one. And so, without further ado:
Hareless & Carefree
Place: Rishpon
Hare: Lager Lout (aided by Dead Boring)
We circled up.
We ran.
We had Down-downs.
Here are the directions for next week's run.
Okay, you didn't think you'd get off that easily, did you? The run, a Hare-less one, was excellently marked by Lager Lout, our Hare, and her partner in crime*, Dead Boring, who didn't join us on the run but came along for the Down-downs. We were promised a 6.5k run and thanks to the miracle of modern technology, we can say that it was exactly that long. Well, someone can say that, anyway, and probably has.
Lager Lout promised "mixed terrain" which means we had to run on horrible fine sandy fields, dusty, dirty orange groves and rocky "terrain tracks" -- on which Deliverance almost took a tumble.** On the plus side, eventually there was a halfway point and we sang the British version of "The Old Brown Cow" which is nothing like the one we learned in US Girl Scouts. The UK single includes some suggestive hip thrusting, too suggestive, apparently for Neverfucker, whose name clearly belies a modest and demure nature.*** Right.
The walkers kicked off the second half by almost leaving Swamp Monster behind**** though he didn't seem to mind it much. The runners, meanwhile, were treated to some long stretches, Dead Boring-style. At a certain point, we gave up checking the trail and let the new kids take a crack at it.
That's right. We had fresh meat on the run. After explaining the non-rules and un-conventions about Hash marks to our two virgins, Andrea and Nancy, they excitedly took to locating the trail. At one point, they even jumped up and down upon finding three blobs. Ah, youth... Even our hard-assed RA was hard-pressed to quell their spirited enthusiasm during Down-downs, much as he tried -- and tried and tried. But beer is good for your hair, the giggly twosome explained, so they had little problem dumping cupfuls on their heads. Eventually, however, like all good girls, they caved in to social pressure. And so the downwards spiral begins...
*And other stuff, presumably!
**Let us emphasize the word "almost".
*** Plus, NF pointed out that he felt uncomfortable singing while a man with shaved legs was looking at his hips. Will Triathlon season never end, FFS?
**** Again, let us emphsize the word "almost".

Fer Fox Sake, who writes,
"This week's hash will be in Herzliyya Pituach at Oreo Park and we are going to run around the embassies and homes of ambassadors... ... ... NOT!!!
Get out your party BBQ tongs and get set for "Mayhem at Modi'in"

That's right clean mountain air, sunflower fields, fresh air, no beach traffic, forested glades and of course piles of rubbish left by locals.
I drove in a standard Honda with no problems the dirt road is in very good condition just take it easy , be aware of people on bikes and walkers drive slowly . I know the directions seem complicated but they are just detailed enough to help you get there with no panic. I will try and mark the road with h and arrows, and T's on the tracks not to take but they could be driven over.
On-on afterwards so bring the BBQs meat & salads etc plates - yada yada yada
It is a beautiful part of the country and the forest is great, be prepared for a hash where you will not see a house for a change – it will not be long so that we have plenty of time for the on on
