As I write this, it is Memorial Day, No hash, so please take a moment to salute or toast our fallen heroes who died for our freedom
I suggest this toast.
To the Fallen

Here's to the Fallen, red, white & blue.
They are heroes, through and through.
They died for our freedom, so they say.
They finally got to heaven, the long, hard way.
To the fallen.

Some hashes are having virtual circles on line during the lockdown. Something called Zoom. I'm told they are fun, short and they then hang out on line. But, unfortunately, no exercise or trail. Not sure how to go about it, but check the other GMs for how and when.

Gay Dancer announced that CH3 is opening up a limited version of what we know as hashing starting in Jun. It will mostly be about running an easy trail by yourself, checking yourself, and beer stop with your own beer or communal beer for $5. So is 4X2H4 and the Big Dog Hash with their own rules and guidelines.

The Tale of the Trail
Sat. May 23, 2020, 2:00pm, The Hashers Not Trashers Hash from the Whore House in La Grange Park. A Rotton Whore laid trail from the red light district in La Grange Park for seven hounds. There were three that didn't make it, but showed up to make an appearance, False Advertising and Zone 2, just as the pack was leaving and some old man, late again, and blaming the CTA, RTA, Metra, the Internet, his cell phone, and he would have blamed his Mama if she was still alive, for getting there late, and just as the rain started. Meanwhile a pack of seven trail hounds were out running city streets and working there way to the woods for some real serious shiggy, wet lands and whatever else the evil hare could come up with. And by all reports, it was a good trail for a hare who hadn't laid trail in ten years. Garmin and Just Kam were the FRBs, or the only ones to do the whole trail at 7.27 miles. What, and I missed all that shiggy. Lower Wackoff finally came in as the DFL. Well, hell, Horn-E wasn't on trail. He finally emerged from the woods as the rains hit and the marks disappeared. But he made it back. A short laid back circle was led by Stupid Is As Stupid Does and then the hare brought out some Rotton grub. Good time on a nice opening day of the Memorial Day weekend.

Meanwhile the Bushman will continue to do the other part of hashing, trail and actual face time and beer. Enjoy whatever part of hashing you can feel comfortable with, stay interested in hashing, hope to see you all soon and meanwhile stay safe.

Sat. May 23, 2020, 2:00pm, An Impromptu Hash, or is it a Holiday Hash or a Memorial Day Weekend Hash. Rotton Whore will lay trail from 334 Dover Avenue, LaGrange Park, The hare says, "It could be wet.  So, a change of shoes and socks is recommended. I’d like to try to avoid it. But, I don’t think that I can." Think earth day as the hare will provide plastic bags to pick up trash along the trail. A Hashers not a Trashers Trail. There will  be grub in the back yard after trail and we can appropriately socially distance and still have a bite to eat. There is supposed to be 3 out of town hashers coming. Come on out and meet them. Hash Cash $2. HHHinChicago.com

It was announced in circle that the 4X2H4 will probably started up the first Tue in June with Lifa haring. Chicago Hash five days later on a Sunday. And the Second Sat of June will be a Big Dog Hash 'Around the World in 80 Beers" set by Meat Inside Her.

Fri. Jun 19, 2020, 7:00PM, The Forty Second Anniversary of Hashing in Chicago. Horn-E will hare somewhere, with the help of any interested Area GMs.

Sat. Jun 20, 2020, 2:00pm, A Bushman Hash.
Horn-E will temporarily lay trail from St. Paul Woods in Mortom Grove. Experienced Covid Bushman hashers wanted them to be BYOB. We may keep that up for this next hash so any hashers that have a problem with cummunal beer will feel safe. Check before going.

Remember you don't have to come if you feel safer and more comfortable staying at home in your jammies eating your 14th bowl of popcorn for the day.

The authorities and even some GMs would like to stop us from doing what we do do, to protect us from ourselves. I'd rather find a way to do what we do do while following safety guidelines. This should fit. The Bushman works.

Sat. May 16, 2020, The Bushman Hash. With the Governor still forcing all of Illinois into Lock Down, the Bushman Hash said no. The Governor said we can go out jogging. That is what we do and most of the time we are well separated so why not. The plan was to take the hash through one of the local golf courses that we seldom get a chance to run. They are closed to golfing so why not. Well, the weatherman said WHY NOT. Ooops. About 4 inches of rain on Thursday. It would be flooded. When Horn-E got there he checked out the river. Overflowing the normal area we finish in, when hashing here. That probably meant that the golf course was flooded. It was and would have made any attempts there to be boring and/or futile. So trail headed Northwest. I had to go down one street for a long block before I really got into the woods and it was less then a foot deep in muddy water, and a hell of a lot of ground clutter buried under water and sight, or just floating. But the trail went across Devon and into more muddy water until I reached the Northwest end of that sector. Then it was back and forth over ravines with multiple water crossing, back across Devon and along the flooded golf course. So, that was the plan. As I finally got back in to the start, I saw a hasher we haven't seen in some time, Slit Digger. I went to finish off the start and saw some guy and some girl heading into the woods, right where my trail started, but I didn't recognize them from the distance and so I forgot about them. Surprise. It was Just Kam and a virgin Harriet, Just Kelsey (sp). I probably screwed that up. Soon Its Too Soft showed. That is two hashers that didn't know that those that RSVP'd said they all wanted to BYOB. So, they had no beer. And I didn't expect them with this iron fisted rule of the other hashers about not hashing. But I did expect False Advertising, Lifa and Lower Wackoff and when they arrived we were set to go. They started out into the woods between the tracks and the entrance to the parking area. Lower Wackoff spotted the marks and took the lead. By the time we got to Central, Slit digger was seen almost a block away and running strong. Didn't see him again until the finish as he blew away the trail in 59 minutes. After that long block, next to protected wet lands, we headed down a sidewalk and into the woods, Like I said, deep water, well, over the ankles at the worst, well most of the time. Trail came out after a hundred yards or so at Devon. I was sweeping and right behind False Advertising, Slit Digger was long gone. I crossed and waited for Lifa, Its Too Soft and Lower Wackoff. I was supposed to sweep and not lead, but they seemed to be worrying about the water to much, and I long ago just got used to it as inevitable. After we crossed Devon it was more water. Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink. Not if you valued your life. Trail headed north west through the bayous and swamps and bogs of Caldwell Woods. But they ran on, or mostly walked through the maze of water and possible water crossings on logs and whatever they could find to avoid getting wet. They were going so slow that even this old gray hare could have laid a live trail and stayed in front. And then suddenly Lower Wackoff starts following trail towards two people in the woods, It was Just Kam and Just Kelsey struggling along on their own through all of that muck. Well done Kelsey. Real well done. And soon Its Too Soft and Lifa caught up and continue sweeping right and left and any way they could go to avoid the water, We finally got to the Northwest end of the trail and a Check. Just Kam went off on one False and Lifa managed to pick south and got on the real trail. He soon left the back pack behind. The trail made three more sweeps across the ravine and up and down the hills on each side. Then we headed back east and they did one more ravine crossing. They then avoided the trail that went right down the middle of the stream. Two inches of cleaner water was to much for them at that point. Cleaned my shoes though. Finally they headed across Devon and a section of nice path above the swollen river where you could actually do some nice woods running. This came out at a road and we had to run along the edge, yes again, swollen river. I know, it is the Bushman Hash and no roads. This came to the golf course where we all got a good look at the swollen fairways. We couldn't get out on the golf course, but there was a bit of a path on the edge of a hill all along the golf course and then along the last edge of swamp land. Some chickened out and just jogged the road, but I did follow Just Kam and Just Kelsey and she even led some of this last little bit. Well done Kelsey. Screw the wimps. After we cross Central it was about a hundred yards of soggy woods until the B, looking over the swollen river and where it over flowed the land. Those that had beer brought it out. Those that didn't have, got one from Just Kam and Just Kelsey who had a few extra. We held a big wide short Bushman circle and everybody had to shout all hare down downs so Horn-E could hear them. We all had a good run and a chance for some real face time and showed that we can hash in these lock down times. Just try to respect others and get out there hashing. It is what we do and this is how to do it.
