Run 861 Acheres Grand Cormier – Foret de St Germain en Laye
June 12, 2014 by Paris Hash House Harriers
Not deterred by the hectic weather and the far west location, a small pack of determined hashers were eager to run in this unusual part of Foret de St Germain.
The station is in the middle of nowhere but as nowhere is a beautiful forest , it sounds perfect for the hash.
I arrived with the beer load driven by my GPS which neglected the station I drove past and it led me to a tiny road in the forest where I was welcome by three Brazilian enthusiastic girls or shemales ???? and further was stuck in a deadlock under the station.
So back again to see the Brazilians thinking I could be an opportunity but nothing could depart me from by running and drinking sin. Bender green hash outfit led me in the right direction.
Then the two Hares Bender and Shaggy began to draw unusual multiple arrows that indicated the run had multiple options , many times more than the number of FRBs to be true.
The start was a little bit chaotic as we were progressing in the bushes and very sharp nettles that sting the proper way. But where was this dawn forest and large alleys !!!
Finally we gathered speed in the larger paths and test our flair for finding the right trails at the multiple checkpoints, checkbacks and double, triple , quadruple and so forth arrows. Look at the map , why spend much of energy for laying trails to finally make a big loop !!
After 5 k the beer near sign was to be seen and as usual the GM smelled the beer in the bushes to offer it to the pack on behalf of the hares.
Look at these gentlemen not waiting for Just Lizzy to gather with the pack , how rude but we were thirsty . We enquired about the feet of Mabouche wearing her barefoot shoes, apparently compatible with beer drinking which is most important for a hasher.
We had no clue where we were , except somewhere in the middle of Foret de St Germain but knew that probably another 5 k were necessary to get back .
The mise en jambe is always a difficult period with all the bubbles but the long alleys were two tempting not to accelerate the pace . We came across a bridge heavily tagged to the one and unique Hash view point .
As I was alone I thought that the train passing by would be the point of interest but Shaggy pointed my eyes in the right direction for this piece of art : a splendid F… off tag.
Look at these enthusiast fellows at the idea this bridge was the clue for the trail back.
A few more trails and the On In sign was heard from The Anarchist and all the pack regrouped for the circle and the well deserved Kronenbourg.
Mabouche , GM from Sans Clue , accepted to be the RA of the day and and stared a long series of punishments and songs for the SCBs almost everyone, FRBs, almost everyone but Just Lizzy was the only FRBi..
Lack of discipline for hash gear so we collectively decided it was high time to reorder .
Special event to celebrate was 30’s birthday of Saving Ryans Private and a mixture of flour and beer was poured on his head, while we were singing Hashie birthday .
Then came the time for hash hymn sensually interpreted by our guest RA , followed by a great bouffe well hidden in the bushes .
A great thank to Bender and Shaggy for this superb trail and bouffe afterwards .
