Thanks due to Ryde and Tablewhine for stepping in at short notice to hare today’s run, due apparently, to lack of illumination in the Kensington Gardens area, where Pope had originally intended to set a trail.
Anyway, always good to revisit my old home stomping ground on the Brentford trail, and the lavishly refurbished Globe.
Here is a map showing locations of some of the WLH runs during the current year. Clicking on a run location will allow you to view the trail for that run.
A not-too-challenging trail (5.9km) set by Mudgee Smuggler around the delightfully posh neighbourhood of Primrose Hill.
The hare also provided a drink stop on some random canal boat that he had somehow commandeered on the Grand Union Canal. Reportedly, he had procured all the drink for <£10 at Morrisons. Who would have guessed?
Down downs for all the usual suspects. Hopefully our singing did not upset the rest of the pub’s clientele who were apparently attending a wake!
A fine trail set by hare Wacker, including perilous river crossing:
The pub did us proud with an excellent spread of hash food, which even WLH gannets were unable to finish.
A fine trail set by Sir Humpalot, with plenty of shiggy for those who like that sort of thing.
Drink stop provided courtesy of Eagermount. Most of the pack managed to keep out of HMP Wormwood Scrubs, hence the usual number of miscreants were present for the down-downs once we got back to the pub. We had one visitor down-down for Steptoe from Pattaya Hash, no doubt back in blighty to revisit the old scrap yard in nearby Goldhawk Road. (A surprising number of WLH hashers appeared to be not-unfamiliar with Steptoe’s home hash. Not sure why that might be!?)
