Sunday 21st December.
Run number 1380.
Arriving at the Kings Arms in Sutton in Craven at 10:20am I made sure I was on time for run number 1380, having slept in the week before for the York run, apologies to Ever Ready as Cheesy and Judge don't do late attendances. We were welcomed by Lick It Up and D. Dog to tell us there was coffee on the house by Steve the landlord and his wife Sue, which was welcomed by quite a few.The trail which started well after the official start time of 11am by late comers travelling by train, we finally got away about 11:20am.
With overnight heavy rain and a fine morning drizzle one might have thought it would be difficult to find the trail, but the flour had survived the rain and we were soon off on our way to the Salt and Pepper pots.
We left the village and dropped down to the stream, hashers going every direction, not where there was any flour.
Catching a sight of Mojo on a path to the left, I shouted across is that the trail? With a swift reply "Yes, but you are probably better off where you are".
Wonky, myself and the Judge followed.
On a higher path to the rest, plenty of shiggy, meeting up with the rest of the pack. At the end of the footpath we all re-grouped before going through a large farmyard which cleared the airways. Lovely jubbly pig shit aaaaaagh!!!!!!
We regrouped across a very wet field which I nearly lost my boots, rain lashing across my Santas beard -what fun.
When we reached the road the group split and hardy hashers followed the trail with Mojo to the summit, the rest with Lick it up to the Tower.
At the Tower, plenty of mince pies, jam tarts, whisky and ginger wine, thanks to Smuttars, Mojo and Lick it up.
Hash flash in sleet, windy conditions. Down the hill to the ON INN, change of dry clothes and a nice pint of Blacksheep.
Big thanks to hosts Steve and Sue for the buffet and to the Hares, great trail with shiggy-lots!
All the best for the New Year
Cheesy and Judge
