It was a cool eight degree grey humourless morning with a threat of rain, the sort of day that has become a norm this winter. If there had been any sun we would have gathered in the shadow of the towering rail viaduct to listen to Kermit and Bika extol the virtues of the trail ahead, apparently flat and dry with fish hooks and regroups.

From the off the first check, where Monarch's Way meets Finchdean Road, was soon found just under the big old chestnut tree. Heading north east there was a clamber through the branches of a casualty of the recent gales to stagger up and out on the western end of The Avenue.

The pack spread out in this open space checking in many directions which gave Panda the opportunity to find a prickle free secluded spot for a pit stop, see video at http://chihashvids.uk.con/panda/takesaleak.flv

Meanwhile, Bambi, Kinky, Keith, Pancsi and Dr Blood found the trail east on the southern edge only to hit a J5 which repacked the pack. South next via Horsepasture farm on the Sussex Border Path all the way to Holme farm with a J4 en-route to moderate the pace.

Only two ways to go here, Pink Flamingo appeared to be returning from the north east so we charged off south west to Stubbermere over-running a falsie. It took a while to call everyone back to end up at the saw mill, then cross the road, and make our way along the edge of Cooper's Wood to a regroup at the big long log beside the garden centre drive. Flash took a groupie while we all said gorgonzola.

Old Faithful and Olive Oyl shot off at the restart and  using local knowledge correctly found their way north to Orange Grove and then on the sticky path up to Forest Hangar where the hares were forced to call another regroup.

Next it was west through The Warren and across Forestside Road. An hour had passed, most assumed we would now head for home and spent some time checking tracks to the south west before muttering our way north on that ankle twisting track parallel to the road all the way to the next forest entrance gate.

Now it was time to head home, through the heart of Stanstead forest, with the four big multi way junctions to entertain and to see Olive Oyl becoming a smaller and smaller yellow speck in front.

The rest of us reached the On-In after one hour and thirty five minutes of surprisingly dry hashing.

At the circle we showed our appreciation for the Hare's efforts in the usual manner. There was some discussion regarding those who over run falsies during which Keith became rather defensive about his behaviour. Bambi was honoured to accept the Hash-It for an insensitive remark alluding to the quality of the run.

There are no prizes for guessing which tavern was used to slake our thirst.

On-On! Bambi.
