The previous Hash was like running around in a fridge, this Hash was similar except that someone had turned on a fan from the east and the light was on.

Virgins Emily and Sam turned up in plenty of time for Bika to baffle them with a description of the markings, and Small Box (Portsmouth HHH) paid us a rare visit.

Only one of our JMs turned up, and he proceeded to enthral us with tales of things that had happened on this day in 1106, 1793, 1930, zzzzzzz, wake me up when he's finished.

Can't remember what the Hares said, something about sawdust and flour I think before we fanned out from The Bird In The Hand, most heading north west up the ploughed field (remembering our last visit here) or up Day Lane towards the solar panels.

It way Kinky and Small Box that hit lucky in the other direction, east up the hill, past the small substation, under the massive pylons that were howling in the wind, and out on Tagdell Lane with Sam now up front.

On to Crouch Lane, still heading east to reach what might be described as a FalseCheckRegroup mark laid in a layer of sawdust covered in flour, guaranteed to double baffle a virgin, which it did.

An easy bit next, a bit of messing about in a playing field then south on Frogmore Lane and west on Monarch's Way where the bunch of FRBs, Snake Charmer, Pancsi, Flash and Splasher were caught on a fish hook as we headed into the open fields and shiggy shiggy shiggy shiggy stiles to reach Coldhill Farm.

Did I mention the shiggy ?.

Down the hill, back to Lovedean Lane but then away from the pub, yes, away from the pub on a long pavement drag south during which a second fish hook caught the same group of Hashers again, will they never learn. Probably not I hear you reply.

At last a turn up James Copse Road to guess where?, yes!, correct, into James Copse. West now, meandering through the copse and getting spread out until an impromptu regroup at the western edge re-packed us.

The inviting, wet path towards Yewtree Cottage proved false, but not before the Sunday peace was rent asunder by Snake Charmer's screams of religious ferver as lay preachers held a rushed baptism to save her soul.

The way of truth led south to Woodcroft Farm and then after finding a long falsie behind Partridge Gardens we made a long haul back north to Yewtree Cottage, then west across Anmore Lane, along Crossway's Road to Little Denmead Farm, a trek into the biting wind.

Sam was way out ahead, Small Box jumped ship being late for a date and The Ref was limping along nursing a reffing injury.

We caught Sam as he took in the delight of a long false towards Stoneacre Copse as we headed east then north to the top of Day Lane.

A choice of L or S awaited us here, S was Day Lane straight back to pub, L was Broadway Lane, past the massive substation and then southeast over the familiar ploughed field that tries its best to come with you on the soles of your feet.

Via L we reached the pub after one hour and thirty five minutes of exhilarating hashing.

At the circle, Virgins, Snake Charmer's new shoes, Bika is Hungarian for Bull, thank the Hares, a bit of poetry, and Splasher gets the Hash-It again. Pub packed but warm.

On On! Bambi.
