Our Hare Speedy invited us in his favourite spot Bois the Meudon by a shades of grey weather ( but not the fifty version !) .
Ooh La La our RA for the day opened the circle and Speedy, just arriving from laying the trail after probably a 2 hours hobbling walk, had still some resources to explain us the Hash signs before admitting that he could not make it twice and will follow with his car.
Little Big Man from Toronto blessed the hare in the Hash tradition and off we went .
We lost sight of the walkers pretty soon excited at the idea of climbing up and down the hills of the forêt de Meudon.
And up we went in a steep tiny path surrounded by suburban typical cottages wandering how locals would convey their pack of beers, probably no hashers . Finding the X sign at the end of the dead end we resigned
We managed to catch up with the walkers at last and finally entered the lovely Bois de Meudon .
After a long very long trail uphill to the first check point it was clear that Speedy was keen to challenge even the FRBs to transform the runner’s trail into a second senior citizen walkers’ run but we took up the challenge .
Despite no horn , the blowing whistle from Running Commentary was enough to cheer us up and give the impression that the few runners left spread over one mile were still forming a hash pack !
Sorry for the readers but after several checkpoints sharply found by French Kiss, and The Anarchist hot on his heels , we both of us lost total sight of the pack and cannot comment what happened behind .
And the Beer stop was found but, even with the walkers help, only empty cans of Koenig beer were found under decayed leaves and logs .
Cheap thrills from Montreal suggested we should share the last sip together, probably something she learned from survival camp in the Canadian freeze but hopefully our Hare arrived in his white Limo to bring us the beer .
His only excuse was he was expecting us to pick mushrooms or repeating the chestnut contest from the 818 Th run.
Back to the On In was quite the same French Kiss and I did not let enough time for Speedy to get back and prepare for the table . French Kiss had an excuse as he had to take care of the Bouffe and me to bring additional chips and tacos , all ready before the rest of the pack finally joined .
The circle opened by Ooh La la welcoming the two visitors from Canada Cheap Trills and Little Big Man who loved so much the 800th run in Bois de Vincennes that he came and admitted all the Parisian Bois are not flat .
Returnees were blamed for missing the Red Dress run episode : Ooh La La, Half Crazy, Gonzo, Slack Mac and The Anarchist
Sucks & Roses was punished again for not wearing a proper Hash gear.
FRBs French Kiss and The Anarchist duly honoured followed by the Ultimate SCB Sharp Shooter who preferred to be an easy prey for sexual perverts rather than walking safely with the group , probably to impress Cheap Thrills .
Sparkle honoured his hash name for his
sparklingsprinkling attitude along the path.
Bender was accused of starting the trail in advance trying to catch up his train at La Defense and renamed as “the Vicar” for his ambiguous enthusiasm to help a bunch a 12y old nubile girls to find their way.
Anaconda and Sleeping sex were accused of gossiping the only possible explanation for arriving 20mn after the FRBs.
Just Stupid for charging the visitors usual fare despite being Canadian and having their father fighting in WWII
And finally Speedy for inventing a new hash rule ” What goes up must be a false trail ! ”
Happily for the RA , the circle just broke before heavy showers turned the Hash hymnal thing into a caricature of group sex therapy .
A hot delicious cauliflower and carrot soup enriched with cheese and spiced with coriander was brought by French Kiss and warmed up our starving stomachs .
Just tell your friends you swapped an afternoon in a heated shopping mall for a crazy afternoon in Bois de Meudon with the Paris hash in the shiggy and the rain they will probably not believe you but this is the Hash
The Anarchist and Ooh La La for the pictures
