Run 184 – La Perla (Splash & Gasp)
Our 1st Hash for New Year 2016, an excellent hash hosted by our hares Petal and Dyspraxia, 23 people turned up, 12 walkers plus dogs and 11runners and Jack(the dog), we all set off from the hares house in La Perla towards Arboleas to the new motorway trying to follow the trail set by Petal, a lovely shade of petal pink,a lovely colour but hard to follow especially if you are colour blind eh OverDeFence!
We eventually got back on the trail following a track that ran parallel to to the motorway, Key Fob our FRB lost the trail and our hare had to get us back on track ably supported by 2hats, we end up going towards Albox on the service road near Los Llanos market, where the trail took us over the main road ,fortunately there was little traffic on a Sunday morning so we got over quite easily, by the time we were all safely over Screw on the Loose took over the role of FRB but again the trail seemed to allude us again so the hare had to intervene and put us straight.
Confusion then reigned again after we had all climbed into a rambler with 2hats going up on higher ground finding pink markers and Key fob going down also finding 2 markers, at this point we all waited with baited breath for an On On call, eventually we got a positive On On call from Key Fob, off we then regrouped just before a tunnel going under the main road, once through the tunnel we ended up in a bamboo forest waiting for a panda to jump out but no it was just Puff saying ” group photo”!
We then followed the trail which took us through a small tunnel where we met up with the walkers. At this point the dogs wanted to join the runners but Norman Bates took control apart from Billy who escaped him and joined the runners and Jack leaving Billy no mates with no mates.
The trail took us along the old railway line that went from Arboleas to Fines back to the El Prado roundabout to find the On In back to our Hares villa where a few nutters namely Key Fob, Puff, Can,t cum Try Again and Petal dived into the pool, you don’t have to do that for a brandy you can have one anyway!
Down downs were administered to several people, obviously the hares, a virgin, 50th wedding anniversary,new shoes, NO watering the campo( que sorpresa ).
We all enjoyed superb hospitality sitting in 22degrees of sunshine.
