Thrusters Run

This is at least part of the run... 4.4kms!

Cheese found a circle check!

Truck and TF were named today (TF stands for Truck F#ck$r). Truck was also offered a down down for 1 consecutive run, one more for 1 being reversible,... and a few more frivolous ones after she declared she'd rather show her t@ts than down a beer.



Dinis HOFT Pics

HOFT scramble

We had it all: sand, sun, rain, wind, grass seeds and burrs, climbs, rocks, deep grass, snakes and roos...
The pleasant beach walk to Shearwater was a bit of an epic, but we made it all. Some of us straglers had to get a lift with bit-of-this for the final 3 kms on road, but Dogshit & partner still had to run at the end when we hit the trail again! Beer and food was our reward.

More photos coming from Dini...


Oh, and here is the map. It was 28 kilometers (I started my gadget a little past the start) till we hit the road at Hawleys (where I ran out of batteries...), and we walked an average of 4.9 km/hr, and the hills did not go over 30m in altitude.

Incidentally, the gadget is the Nokia N95 phone. The beach photo above was also taken with it! It is a5megapix camera, it takes decent film footage too and plugs directly into the TV for viewing! Also navigates my way around town when I get lost, with maps for the entire world free to download and update anytime. The downside is that for all these features it consumes a lot of power and the batteries do not last more then a day, and when using the GPS only about 4 hours!

Check it out at CNET or Myshopping.

Update from Grizzly

  • Hobart's H5 will be celebrating its 1400th run on Monday 17th December, coinciding with its JMs Christmas Run. The run starts at 6:30pm from the Hobart Regatta Pavilion, Lower Domain and will cost $30. The theme is 'mixed fruit' and everyone must bring a $5 pressie for Santa.

  • Launceston Hash House Harriers will be celebrating its 30th anniversary with a commemorative run on Thursday 28th February 2008. The run will be set by one of the original Gang of Five members, Neil 'Derbs' Derbyshire at its original location in Legana (Launceston). More details closer to the date.

Dint's Muddy Run

6.9 Kilometers of good old clean mud. I averaged a remarkable 7.8km/hr average which is not as remarkable as my maximum recorded speed of 37.6 km/hr which may well have been when I tried to catch up to Thrust to return her lost property (not fast enough, but I managed to return her property during the circle). The elevation gain was a tame 67 meters approximately, topping out at 173.5 m.

Soff Run

Pictures are worth a thousand words....

Good run, great food. Even Burnie HHH runners managed to keep up with us athletes today! Burnie whimps had to discard 90% of their down downs before downing them, but hey, their loss! And with Bit-a-this I guess it wouldn't mix well with her Guinness in any case...

Thrust tried to get the floor, but sat there being ignored till the last possible down down...

Cheese did a fantastic lip for the night, just like every other 52 nights he did, we'll miss the bastard's performance. He sure raised the bar for the next lip!

Next run (26/11/07) at Bell's Parade in Latrobe but Bald Eagle will no doubt put out a new hare line shortly....

Lantern's bright light

For a Tasmania's first, here we have Lantern's run mapped out.
We started this run with a bus ride to our starting point at 231m. We navigated the wet and muddy terrain and descended down to 57 meters. The run was 5.23 kilometers (I took no shortcuts for the record!), it took us just on 45 minutes of running (not counting circle checks). Average speed (now we are getting personal) was 6.8km/hr, but, wait for it, my maximum speed was officially recorded as 39 km/hr (Kathy Freeman would've been left in the dust).

Captain Crab (closely followed by Hermit Crab) and GoneAgain fronted up to Black Tracka at The Quadrant at the unGodly time of 730am. We made our way to the start of the Black Bluff Walk and clambered up the wet steep slippery trail. Heaps of mushrooms were sighted, none were eaten. We got to the tarn way up on the trail and sighted Black Bluff. Crab nigh on fainted, goneAgain coughed at the sight but Tracka was not that easily intimidated. Hermit followed Tracka blindly, and Crab and GoneAgain followed reluctantly.

Took us 3 hours to get up there without too much stress. Coming down was slippery. Crab almost stacked when he hit an unexpected flat bit, and GoneAgain was done coughing by the time we got back to the pub to watch the Kangaroos beat Melbourne.

Grizzly Details...

The Burnie leg of the Global Harriettes R*n on Saturday 7th July (07.07.07) has been moved to a breakfast r*n to allow NW hashers to afro-up for the Combined Hobart Hashers Ball that same evening. More details on the GHR to come. The ball details can be found on both the Burnie and Trashmania blog sites.

In two weeks Burnie hash will be delving into the realm of trekking (Klingons on the starboard bow) with a half-day walk to Winterbrook Falls in the Leven Valley, coinciding with the HOFT (Hash Old Fart Trekkers) walk to Black Bluff from Taylors Flats. Details are sketchy at this stage, but it is hoped that the two groups will meet up at some stage, even if it is only at the pub afterwards.

Don’t forget the Highland Fling over the June long weekend, which will again be an official Burnie r*n – details on the Trashmania blog.

Red Dress Run

Important Announcement for Next Weeks RUN 16/04/2007

This will be a first for Devonport HHH – A Red Dress RUN.Yes that’s right a RED Dress RUN.
You can choose to wear a red dress and pay another $5 for the privilege with all extra monies collected being donated to a worthwhile charity. I can’t remember the exact charity that was decided last night, but it was in honour of the 20th anniversary of the Grim Reaper.

If you choose not to wear a red dress you will feel left out, not part of the crowd, etc. Red Dress Runs have been part of Hash Lore for quite a while and are always used as a fundraiser for worthwhile charities. So come on – drag out those red cocktail dresses and put them on for this occasion. (Ladies can even wear red dresses as well).

Run starts from Hiscutt park in Penguin at Windmill.

A message from your Sponsors....

Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ,having known the truth,I
had no choice than to do what is lawful and right
in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of
God & his mercies and glory upon my life.

I am Mrs.Sheila Johnson the wife of Mr Harold Johnson,my husband worked
with the Chevron/Texaco in Kenya for twenty
years before he died in the year2001.We were married for ten years without
a child.My Husband died after a brief illness that
lasted for only four days.

Before his death we were both born again Christians.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my
matrimonial home which the Bible is against.When my late
husband was alive he deposited the sum of US$3.5M.(Three Million Five
Hundred Thousand U.S.Dollars) with a Bank in Europe.
Presently,this money is still with the Bank and the management just wrote
me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the
release of this money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody
to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.

Presently,I'm in a hospital in Kenya where I have been undergoing treatment
for esophageal cancer.I have since lost my ability
to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live.It
is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity
organizations anywhere in the World.Because relatives and friends have
plundered so much of my wealth since my illness,I
cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of

Please,I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the Funds
from the Bank.

I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund
churches,orphanages and widows propagating the word of
God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.

The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth.I took
this decision because I don't have any child that will
inherit this money and my husband's relatives are not Christians and I
don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused
by unbelievers.I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an
ungodly manner.Hence the reason for taking this bold
decision.I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.I know that
I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord.

Exodus{14 VS14}says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my
peace.I don't need any telephone communication in this
regard because of my soundless voice and presence of my husband's relatives
around me always.I don't want them to know about
this development. With God all things are possible.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of my attorney

Pig Pen Trip

Pig Pen 2007 (from a visitors point of view)

The motley group of DH3 members (Mabel, Flasher, PB, Thrust and Tracka) attended the annual Pig Pen run at Copping on February 18th 2007.

The trip started at Tracka’s at 8am with stops at Epping Forest (compulsory for food), Campania (for relief), Sorell (for more food) and finishing at Copping at around 11.30am.

All were able to abuse cyclists on the great Victorian bike ride on the road into Sorell and also some local motorists who obviously don’t know how to pass cyclists. Some sysclists even passed them at times.

At the Copping Oval (badly in need of a mow) some hashers were set up in tents, others in campervans and then there were others who were not intending to stay for the bush dance and had just turned up for the run / piss for the day. Being in a valley then temperature was exaggerated somewhat and it would have been at least 30 degrees may be more, no breeze to speak of, just hot really. We registered and received the compulsory badge and the promise of cold beer and food after the run. The hares called all to a circle and mentioned that there would be 3 runs, the short walk / run (about 6km) “the pork hunt”, the medium run (about 10 – 12km) “the ham hero” and the long run (about 18km) “the iron swine”. All DH3 chose the medium and at the appointed time off we went. Mabel led the pack (dangerous I here you say) as all runs started in the same place and went up past the cemetery, past a vineyard and up a reasonable hill to a fence jump and then down into a newly planted forest. The heat was oppressive as we came upon the first sign directing the hunters in one direction and the heroes and swine in the other direction. We were warned about snakes but had not seen any at this stage. The pack spread over quite a distance and the black sandy soil absorbed and reflected back the heat and eventually there was a drink stop. Only water and not cold but enough to wet the whistle and pour over the head to provide some relief. Mabel and Flasher being the fitter of the crew had disappeared by this stage leaving PB, Thrust and Tracka to bring up the rear. Tracka got lost just after the drink stop and had to be brought back onto the trail by PB as it wound it way back out of the plantation and across some paddocks to a saddle and then down again via more paddocks and short undergrowth. The second drink stop was a welcome sight as more water was poured over heads and the hare joined us for the run back to the on on.

A nicely set trail with some interesting hills and valleys and good use of territory.

The On On was ok but the hash hops did not have the beer set right and most was wasted because the beer was not cold enough and you basically ended up with a mug of froth. The ginger beer was ok though. A compulsory down was had by all for visiting and the lippery went for ages and ages. In fact we all disappeared whilst the lippery was still running to enable a stop for a counter tea on the way home.

Counter tea at Campbell Town was nice but it was still bloody hot and most uncomfortable at the pub. The trip home was uneventful and all arrive safely back at Tracka’s at about 10pm.

Well worth the trip as a good day was had by all and it was good to see many other hash clubs attending as well.

Problems posting?

I hear people were having trouble emailing postings to the blog. I am not sure what is happening, but I fiddled and it seemed to be working again. Same email:

As for me, I am busy getting fit in exotic locations. This included Fraser Island, Noosa, Brisbane and Melbourne. Shortly off to continue exercising in Canberra, Adelaide, Alice Springs... So GoneAgain is gone still...

Bridge to Bridge

Yes it has been done – against all odds, distance, snakes (more later) and wrong turns, 8 intrepid walkers from DH3 completed the track from Alma Bridge to Spellmans Bridge on 11/2/2007.

After meeting at Killer’s place at 7.30am the crew of Flasher, Maggie, Thrust, Mabel, Poxie, Pb, Trilly (a dog) and Tracka were told that instead of going from Spellmans bridge to Alma bridge on a newly opened track the walk (reputed to be 38km) the walk would now be a shorter 17km round trip from Alma bridge to a point approx. 8.5km away and return. The reason given was that the track was not actually complete at all and that there was a problem with part of the track being blocked due to forestry operations. This of course lightened everyone’s mood as a 17km walk was going to be a lot easier than the 38km previously mentioned. Of course all who were attempting the journey were prepared for the longer distance anyway……….NOT!!!

Killer was going to be a non-starter as he was attending a snake tagging meeting with his son (he did not see any).

A quick trip to Alma bridge from Killer’s and we were underway at 8.30am (strangely on time) with an estimated return time of around 12.30pm on the newer revised course.
The pace was steady and we had our first stop at around 9.30pm after going the wrong way due to lack of markings on several occasions and also coming across a couple of fishing huts on the way. The track was reasonably flat with a couple of small hills thrown in for good measure.

Wilmot river was quite low and there was not much flow (which would prove to be good later).
At around 10.30am we had emerged from quite a low canopy with some magnificent man ferns and quite a cool temperature due to the shade onto a nature reserve paddock with a nice picnic shelter. There was a track crossing back over the river via stepping stones and another climbing the hill and winding back to Wilmot road. After some investigation of the river crossing all climbed the hill and had a rest at the track that then went onto Wilmot road. Mabel made the decision to check further and we all followed a well formed track back down to the river via some substantial ferns, dogwoods and cutting grass. After attempting to follow the track for quite a while (and it was getting quite difficult due to cliff faces) we crossed the river one more time and arrived into another paddock of the nature reserve that we were in earlier.

There had been motorbikes here so we followed the track and came across another well used fishing hut right on the banks of the Wilmot river where a quick rest and refuel was completed. After leaving the hut we came across a well used motorbike track that went up hill for some distance. Much discussion was had here and eventually all went up the hill to the end of a forestry track that apparently winds in from Swamp road near Kindred. A very long and steep hill (a MF hill by any description) where Tracka, Mabel and Maggie investigated further and had a good long view and where the river proceeded whilst all others went back down the hill and found a shelter shed where some locals had overnighted and were about to go back the MF hill on a quad bike with a flat rear tyre and fully loaded with camping equipment and other passengers. It looked like a dodgy prospect but we found out later they all made I back safely.

After a quick lunch break more discussion was had as to whether to turn back and trace back to Alma Bridge (approx 4.5 hours walking) or trust the locals who said that there was another bridge and track about half an hour to 1 hour up the other track. Eventually all agreed and with Mable leading we progressed up the half hour to hour track.

Some big hills and descents followed until with Mabel leading and about to cross a log the first of the snakes was spotted. Mabel had been carrying a stick for quite some time but when it came time to use it he didn’t. He was about to cross the log when the snake (Tiger with nice black shiny skin and estimated to be around 5 feet in old money) stood up and winked at him. Flasher who was following closely pulled him back to stop any further problems and after seeing Tracka the snake turned and scampered away. Mabel handled the situation quite well apart from legs turning to jelly and heart attempting escape from chest. The track lead on and on and by this stage all (or maybe just me) were getting tired and had sore legs, feet or other parts.

With Mabel still in the lead the group trudged on up some more MF hills and down some equally tough descents until the second of the encounters with reptile kind. Mabel had established a reasonable pace and was leading the rest of the group by 20 to 30 metres when Tracka stopped quickly jumped a world record backwards from a standing start into Flasher as another 5 to 6 foot tiger snake stood and checked him out. As a loud ‘Oh Shit’ was heard the snake turned and disappeared towards the river. No legs of jelly this time but a maxed out heart rate certainly occurred. The time was now about 2.30pm and whilst we trundling on there were doubts starting to emerge as to the distance to go until we were able to get out of the river valley and whether we could keep our bodies going as most if not all were quite buggered by now and starting to loose concentration, not good with the type of track we were following. We were encouraged to keep going as we found some tyres that are used for track stabilization and evidence of recent work which meant that we must have been near to a exit point from the trail.

We then came down to a sign that said "Spellmans Bridge via Leo’s bypass" which meant that at least we were still going in the correct direction although we still had no idea how far.

With the river level being low we were able to cover quite some distance by walking up the rocks in the river and eventually coming to a point on the track where the sign said "Please use upper track as there are rock bands on the lower track". After already going up hill too many times and needing to listen to some good rock music we chose the lower track and we pleased to find that some significant work had been completed to allow us to go around the rock bands in the form of ladders and rock bridges. Just when we thought there was about 6km to go "Bridge Ahoy" was called and we spyed Spellmans bridge.

All congratulated each other and after a check of the watches we had completed the journey (though not planned) in 7 hours. Now came the next problem, no mobile phone service, no way to contact anyone to pick us up (remember we were going to do a return walk) we contemplated hitching a ride back to Alma Bridge. Thrust said she knew someone and disappeared to try to make a phone call to get us picked up. After we consumed all of Flasher’s chocolate (400 gms), Poxie’s bread rolls and some lollies we were still waiting for Thust to re-appear. Finally she arrived with Peter Whiffy Dog in his ute after having a nice cold beer (bitch) and we were all given a lift back to Alma Bridge in the Whiffy Dog ute with Mabel and Poxie riding on the flat tray. A quick trip back to the Forth pub followed and several cold beers were consumed whilst listening to the blues being played and then an impromptu bbq was held at Killers.

Thanks Killer and Linda for the hospitality, food, salad, wine, scotch, beer and company.

Overall a good first outing for the HOFT. (Hash Old Farts Trekkers) All over 45years of age (sorry Thrust and PB) except Trilly the dog who is now in the bad books for biting PB after an altercation with Angus (one of Killers dogs).

Pig Pen 2007

After much consumption of lubricant it has been decided that a delegation (I think the new plural word for more than 1 hasher) from Devonport HHH will attend the Pig Pen run at Copping on February 17th. Basic plan is to go there and come back on same day – tough job but someone has to do it.

  • Meet at Tracka’s at 7.45am on February 17th – Tracka can take a total of 8 Hashers (2 seats already taken) so if there are more attending then another vehicle will need to go.

  • Leave Tracka’s at 8am – Arrive at Copping at around 11.30am.

  • Run/Walk/Drink until around 5pm.

  • Leave Copping for Counter Attack at Ross around 6.30pm

  • Leave Ross at around 8pm and arrive back at Tracka’s around 10pm.

Bring $25 for Pig Pen run and extra $$ for counter attack.
