HHHi HHHashers:

Last week:
Thu was the start of the 40th Anniversary of Hashing in Chicago with Horn-E laying a trail from the Double Bubble. A pack of about 20 took off towards Loyola and then worked its way past the hares house for a beer stop. But it wasn't there. Somehow about half the pack found the beer stop by not following trail and guessing where it might be and entered this little park from the north. The rest followed the trail and finally found the park from the south. From here we returned to the bar where Gay Dancer led a nice circle in the beer Garden. 

On Fri we had,The First Crack of the Moon Hash set by
Son Of Spam from The Wise Owl. A nice pack of about fifteen hounds followed trail to a small park where we held circle. I left shortly after while the pack headed back to the bar and I heard they drank late into the night.

On Sat we started with a short Bushman Hash. Seventeen hounds on trail. Wow. It was from Dam #4 Woods and a prelube to the main Celebration Hash. When I arrived I found that it rained real hard overnight and the picnic area had spots with about 3 inches of water. Right in the direction of the planned trail. Well, if we are going to get wet, it might as well be right at the start. Trail headed through some woods and finally across Devon for the serious woods. A boring trail along the river, or winding in the woods. Winding in the woods was planned and there were patches of water that we couldn't get around. Eventually the trail veered away from the river into some serious brush. I knew there was a prairie, but getting to it was a problem. Finally we emerged at a path of sorts. Three parallel paths like they were made by a three wheel car. And all full of water, three to five inches and slippery. Trail finally got through the prairie and into some nice woods and finally to a muddy tunnel under Devon. From there is was a bike path to B. Beer was on a peninsula into a swamp, but one crazy wanker just plunged mid thigh deep in the swamp to retrieve the beer. I got a quick Down Down and left them to a Bushman circle so I could lay the next part of the trail.



I had a last minute Co Hare, Snotcho Mama, and he helped save the day. We took off for some quick woods and then headed for the river. When scouted on Wed, it was muddy, but looked like it would dry by Sat. But those damn rains in our wettest June in history. It was now deep in river overflow and full of floating ground clutter and such. Since the trail would just parallel a higher level path, we went for the path. Most of the pack would have done that anyway. And we sort of followed this path on and off until we hit Touhy. And it was slippery and with occasional water areas. After crossing the river we had a T and E trail.
Snotcho Mama went straight on Touhy to a large picnic area and gave the Turkeys a twisting course through the area to the First Beer Stop.
Meanwhile I headed into the Eagle trail, mostly paralleling the river through fairly open forest. When planning the trail I headed inland and eventually saw a swamp I missed. This time, with high waters, I headed inland sooner and found a nice forest to run through and there was that beautiful swamp. Reeds that were 12 to 15 feet high. I couldn't resist. I headed straight into the reeds. While the live growth was high and formidable looking, when I got into it I found that the previous years dead growth was criss crossed in fromt of me making forward progress almost impossible. Just forcing myself through for about 30 yards. It had to be well over fifteen minutes to get through this mess including climbing over fallen trees and three inches of water. From here it was a short bit of woods to the beer stop.
After the beer stop we headed to the south and another T and E split, Turkey was set by me, just straight south along River Road. The woods to the left were impassible and would not have been fun if we could have gotten in and out of them.
Meanwhile Snotcho Mama crossed the street into a zone of hotels and offices and made the trail up as he went along, including one wall climbing. We had to do the best we could with a bad situation.
Then we hit beer stop number 2, on Devon and just south of the finish. Turkey could have a beer and walk back.
Eagles had one more section and we were off laying this section through woods that were fairly open when we suddenly heard the Eagles yelling On On. We were about to get caught. Snotcho Mama yelled, I'll set a long Back Check and took off to the east and after laying the Back Check, he circled back to me. Meanwhile I set off into another prairie, laying TP as I ran through almost invisible and over grown paths where I attempted a few Splits and forks in the paths. We finally rejoined to the west of the prairie and headed back to the On In part of the trail, along that same bike path the Bushman finished on. And soon Hooch Br Cooch came running on by.
As we finished, Hashers were hitting the local fresh water pump to clean up a bit. Feather got the grill going with chicken, burgers, hot dogs and other goodies. After grub, Horn-E set out three blocks of ice for the circle. USS Cum On My Face led the circle and we pretty much all got on ice multiple times on a long and fun circle. After circle it was pretty much clean up and go home. And we did. Great time.


Sun was to be a hangover hash set by Rag Time Hash and The Cock Whisperer and Rusty Grundel. I was to hung over, well, not really. Just whipped and needing a day off. Hope it all went well.

Mon was the Chicago Hash set by Hooch B4 Cooch and Dr Cockvorkian and the 40th Anniversary of the Chicago Hash. More damn rain. 22 hounds got about 1.5 miles into the course when they hit, hard and whiped out all sense of trailI was with a pack of six and someone got on Facebook and found the Beer Stop was three blocks away at the back yard of Menstrual Casserole. From there, Hooch B4 Cooch laid another quick trail to the parking area behind Its Too Soft's condo. Finfishing a keg from Sat. Then we went back to Durkins for a fun circle where the virgins were quite prominent in getting nailed for many down Downs. Welcome mon Just Candy and daughter, Just Stacy.

The actual 40th Anniversay of Hashing in Chicago. Horn-E laid a trail from Big Joe's. We had 8 hounds for a promised short laid back trail and it was. Second Cuming came in first in about 298 minutes. Its Too Soft led the rest about five minutes later with Just Bob pulling up the rear. A quick beer stop and back to the bar for a laid back, sitting circle that we did Full moon style and we just kept going on and on through about 8 pitchers. And we named Just Bob, Magnetic Muffs loooong time friend, StuffinMuffin.

On On
