After the summer break”, C’etait la rentrée” but apparently many of you preferred to escape Paris and get some sunshine outside. Anyway the hare The Anarchist took a great pleasure to revisit the 800th hash spot.
The small but determined pack including a virgin Just Denise from North Wales was chatting patiently, waiting for the hare to find a parking place.
After proper instructions, for the newcomer, Sleeping Sex took command of the walking trail as she was alone.
We were all praying for her not getting lost despite the detailed maps provided and gave her an appointment at the beer stop later .
The running pack composed of Sex Tourist and Naughty ways, Just Denise and the Hare began to explore the eastern part of the Bois de Vincennes, leaving the Château for the final run .
Sex Tourist showed some sign of fatigue due to the lack of vacation and missed the first properly marked check back, just a question of days and Florida is yours …..
Then we had a nice run around the Lake de la Porte Jaune in both ways as the 1st was a check back too.
Just Denise was showing a lot of enthusiasm , her good flair leading her in the right directions , nearly challenging the FRB position.
Then we headed south dans la plaine des Jeux , watching people playing football or picnicking with loud music. After 6 k of wandering around the beers stop sign appeared at the Pershing stadium where a Base ball match was played.
So we had a nice pause watching The Templiers from Senart winning the French championship against Parisiens from PUC. Sleeping Sex did find his way to the beer stop thanks to an handsome and obliging body-builded guy, well done .
So the interesting question was but where is the castle . Don’ count on the hare to give some clue as he took a” malin plaisir” to lay the trail amidst the bushes and the bosquets until the final lane to the esplanade Saint Louis, one of the several kings who lived there.
A selfie before the final run across the Château to discover the 50m dungeon the pack was looking for for the last 10k.
And the circle began, Just Denise was duly honoured . Sleeping Sex was punished for taking a bus drive during the walking trail, Naughty ways for committing no crime, Sex Tourist for long short cuts and The Anarchist for a crime I do not remember anyway.
Sex Tourist and Naughty ways volunteered for haring coming back from Florida in October but we need hares for next 2 runs , so please apply to make it happen : firstname.lastname@example.org
