It was a good Cackle of Happy Hashing Punters who found the carpark to Mount Gnomon who were fronted with a life and death Rambo/Whimp Decision. GoneAgain took the wrong decision and headed off down the steep dirt-road, minutes after the runners had left, in the Rambo direction. The sensible Burnie Hashers, our walkers and the Townsville Hashing Tourists all headed up the trail and into the dusk following the Whimp arrow.
The Walkers started at 320 meters above sealevel and climbed up to 480m, which marks the top of Mount Gnomon. The Runners first descended a further 50-100 meters along a fast trail before starting their climb... GoneAgain was lucky Crow had arrived late and summited in time to scrape him off the trail before he almost plunged off the cliff into a void of darkness, and carry him home.
Bastard had the food sorted at his private idaho, buns with meat. Crow came to the rescue for the second time today, bringing fruit and icecream. GoneAgain, who is diabetic, made his second mistake for the night and pigged out on the icecream as he doesnt eat that very often. He was so stuffed that he even left a full but opened beer to ride in the back of Kiler's van to be reclaimed next week.
The Townsville nomads pictured above, Blowback and Copit, were suitably impressed, especially after we all charged our glasses for a farewell drink to Truly the long dog who recently passed away :(
Next Run at Soff's Place in Turners Beach: Number 40 along the Esplanade

Dini even found a relatively pleasant smelling bush toilet which saved her day. The vapours almost melted her (see pic below)
And once we all got back to the cars there was not Dint. Dint found it an oportune time to train for a marathon.
Good food was had by all, Bitathis got congratulated on her 80th run with Devonport, for which we all sang a happy birthday song. Flasher and Dini robbed us off our small change and gave away stuff that noone wanted. All happy, and ready for more at the Gnomon carpark out of Ulverstone next monday (22 March 2010).
On will be called at 5:00pm, but be prepared for impending darkness while on trail.
Bring a hat, mug, black arm band and $10 for food and bucket. As is Burnie Hash tradition, there will be a wee spot of Drambuie to mark Truly's time on trail.

It is with a deal of sadness that we mark the passing of Truly the long dog; cat food napper, sausage dog impersonator and faithful hash hound of A Bit of This.
Truly started life as a doberman, but as legend has it hashed so much that her legs simply wore out.
Truly's 18th birthday was celebrated in October 2009 (see picture), making her approximately 85 in human years or 126 in hasher years.
In true Burnie hash tradition, Truly's passing will be marked with a Drambuie, with perhaps just a pint or two of Guinness.
Truly joins other notable hash hounds with the Cloud Nine Hash pack, such as Maverick, Fred the Transexual Hash Hound, Boo and Hamish.
A collection will be taken up to have Truly stuffed and mounted on a skateboard in an effort to stop A Bit of This scarpping off back to ol' Blighty.

Lantern gave us all the very serious task of carrying a cool kilo of ice on the run. Lucky for us we were warned to bring gloves. Unfortunately many of us seemed to prefer the latex/medical type of glove which was of little help in carrying ice. The land-owners who allowed us to run through their property put water out for us, which we all suspected of being laced with Vodka. After all, the donuts we got at the start of the run were laced with mustard. When we crossed the creek and clambered up the other bank there was a support vehicle with more virgins feeding us glasses of milk which we surely suspected of being laced with something. The TimTams we tainted with Vegemite, so why would the milk be pure?
Back at the on-on a huge meal was awaiting us, organised by Lantern's little helpers. He did his best to get the ingredients, and managed to get some right. So much food was provided that we forgot about our kilo of melting ice which GoneAgain, Ringo, Sof, Tracker, and a few other obedient Hashers managed to carry the long way round. Ice was ditched on the lawn.
Dint had a beautiful cake adorned with the number 1500. Dini was very proud of Dint for once.
NEXT WEEKS RUN FROM: The Big Potato on the Bass Highway past Latrobe...
