Texas T-Bag had no problem shortcutting the trail and he was the hare! The trail started from Nimitz park USO, 12 minutes after hare away was called the following hounds took to chasing the hare down: Psychodrunk, Chainsaw Assacre, Potassium Pubinator, Sushi Cowgirl, Screw Drive Her, One Dog Sleeping with his virgin NFN Joy, Romanian Steamer with her daughter Crena, 3MC, and Chocolate S%^& Stick.
The trail would cross the river; up past the arcade and across highway 35 we would go. Making a left the trail would soon have an intersection at the bottom of an endless set of stairs and up we would go. The trail would keep going up to the top of the hill and make another left at the top. At the intersection the trail would pass a shrine then up more stairs to a CB. Down a couple of stairs and thru the shiggy we would go in search of beer. The trail would come out of the shiggy to an intersection the lead hounds would find what they think is true trail and follow it up more stairs. Then BT was found and the lead hounds, Chainsaw, Psycho, and Sushi would go past the BT in search of a short cut just to find a trail with another BT. Backtracking this trail we would go back to the intersection where all the remaining hounds were exiting the shiggy. +++> was soon found and the hounds were back on the trail! Soon the hounds would realize we were going thru the shiggy heading right back to the trail, what is happening? Yes TTB had shortcut his trail right back and crossed thru an earlier intersection, crossing out the BT the trail would start going down hill. Sushi would miss a turn and shortcut into nowhere until he did a circle and found his fellow hounds to lead the way, tired and thirsty he would not falter. Psycho and Chainsaw would lead the way in search of the hare; the trail would go up another hill before starting down following the street. Soon a set of stairs would bring the trail back to highway 35 on its way to the finish at Sasebo Park.
Our youngest hasher, Crena, would make the entire 11 KM hash and still have energy to ride the swing while we completed our down downs. Many hashers would drink for perceived trail violations and backsliding. TTB held nothing back today and provided the thirsty hounds with a wide variety of beverages from around the world!
Onon would take us to the Kabab stand + where the owner takes pictures to post on facebook to show the world where hungry hashers go for a meal. Other onon’s would take us to Makati, Wendyz, and if my memory were correct we would make a brief stop at Playmates. It was a very tiring and dehydrating day so my memory may be off on what happened after and before the Kabab stand.
Watch your email, check facebook, or www.sasebohhh.com for the next hash, TTB will continue to be the token short cutter and there is sure to be some hash treasures picked up along the way!+++> Sushi Cowgirl
