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.
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.
