Run 5921 October 2006Bambi and Old Faithful nr. A3(M) J2Horndean, Keydell Nurseries, Havant Road SU706127

Just when you thought that every conceivable corner of our Hampshire and Sussex area had been explored Bambi and Old Faithfull find new, and very good, hashing country. Via a farming acquaintance, Old Faithfull found the name of the landowner and was granted once off permission to use the land. I trust we can go back for another go someday.
A pack of 20 assembled in the car park of the Keydell Nursery under threatening skies.
The JMs welcomed a visitor from Indonesia, Adrian Smith, more used to running on the equator in volcano country and Emily, Spiderman and Helena's daughter, for her first hash run. Also John Nash was a welcome returnee.
The Hares moaned about the thundery downpours would have obliterated their trail. They then lectured us about not overrunning falsies - as if we would!
Just as we about to go, who else but Mussolini drove in late with passengers Pancsi and Sarah pleading the puncture excuse - a bit like "the dog ate my homework".

So we were off. A bit of road work led us along Rowlands Castle road, down to Pyle Farm across a field and into Holt and/or Stein wood.
Some shrewd hash laying kept the back together and the weather toggled between rain and sun.
We retraced our path across the field and a false trail was now the right way - up to the big roundabout and back into the garden centre from the north. About 90 minutes and 6.5 miles.

The hashit was awarded to Mussolini for brazenly overrunning a falsey and gloating.
The hares were applauded for their resourcefulness in finding a new area and laying a fine trail.

We retired to the Ship & Bell in Horndean in the shade of the much loved GALES Horndean Brewery which has sadly closed after a takeover by Fullers - still at least their beer is better than most.

Take care out there.

Spiderman.
