With the temperature recorded by my car at -7, virgin hare Submissive and myself set off at 8:30am to lay a trail across the relatively newly-landscaped Broom. Setting the trail was mainly uneventful, no angry farmers, no missing footpaths, just a couple of frozen solid gates and a minor stumble on a rather slippery track. So surely this could only get better? The weather improved to a near tropical -3 and we were joined by a gaggle of newcomers, all eager to enjoy the delights of a trail across Bedfordshire. No Shagpile this week. as he was competing for the hash anorak role by talking in dots and dashes to people from afar. Maybe Fat Controller was also out with his friends swapping train numbers?
Unfortunately, our new GM, Capt F has taken it upon himself to start each circle with a joke; bananas, electric chairs and bus conductors this week? Double Entry's ear muffs could prove popular as they do more than protect against the cold.
There was a small competition running throughout this hash - to identify as many birds as possible. The official winning list as identified by Twitcher Rapid was : A few ducks, a couple of swans, some geese, 2 Golden Eagles, a bird of paradise, a macaw and a dodo. I claim my chocolate.
