    Asia United Hash

    November 21 in Taiwan ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    After several days of sickness, finally starting to feel better. Flew out of Chiang Mai Wednesday afternoon, and arrived here in Taiwan (Taoyuan City) in the evening. Getting through the airport was super easy and fast, and then we had a short 30 min taxi to the hotel. We were both feeling a bit hungry, and Jo suggested we get some sushi. Luck was in our favor, there was a sushi bar a half a block from our hotel. Even better, I was expecting it would probably be expensive, but it was ($1 per plate), so after a full dinner, it came to only 420 TWD ($14 US). A beer and a movie back at the hotel finished off the evening, and a good night's sleep.

    AU Red Dress Run - We wandered down to the venue in the morning, to register and get our goodie bags (they were plentiful, with backpack, shirt, patch, hat, dish, utensils, and various other unsundries) and met up with a few old friends. Since there is no hash scheduled for Friday, we decided to join in on the Red Dress Run. With all our new stuff in tow, we dragged it all back to the hotel, had some lunch, got some more medicine, and then made our way back to the venue for the RDR. Trail was no better than expected, basically a conga line through the streets, dodging cars and scooters, visited one temple, and then finally turned right and made our way into a local brewery for beer check number one. After about 30 minutes, we finally got moving again, and dodged a few more cars and scooters before finally popping out into an inner city park for beer check number two. This one actually had live entertainment, as a young female drum player rocked the party as we drank a wide selection of juicy beers. After about 45 minutes, we made a break for it and finished trail on our own. Back at the venue, once the pack finally arrived, we were entertained by the best dressed pageant, and dined one some local dinner delights. Circled finished just about the time the drizzle started, so after one more beer . . . we made our way back to the hotel for a hot shower, a movie, and more sleep. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4271695636

    Mekong Indochina Hash 2019

    November 14 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Today starts 5 straight days of hashing in and around Chiang Mai, for the annual Mekong Indochina Hash. We are staying in the Duangtawan Hotel, which is a comfortable place, and centrally located.

    Lanna Bush H3 - FP ran with the CM Bunny / Iron P***y Hash (mostly only women), and I ran with the Lanna Bush (Men Only) trail. It was quite an excursion to get out to the run site, as we stopped every 10 minutes for the drivers and the hares to coordinate. Once we finally got on trail, it was an excellent jungle trail, with plenty of climbing. I had to tap out at the beer check, as my chest was hurting. https://www.relive.cc/view/vmqX1NYBdov

    Thinking Drinking H3 - On Friday, we went out of town again for the long awaited 75th running of the TDH3. Hares were Ibo Ibo and Diarrhea, who promised a fun, but elevating trail. It was elevating for sure, lots of climbing. https://www.relive.cc/view/vXOnEZJn3Bv

    Mekong Indochina Hash Trail day 1 - After a sore shoulder on Friday, I was thinking I would have to sit out for the Saturday trail, but I rallied and went out for the short walkers trail. Now this is new territory for me, I have never done a strictly walkers trail before. So off we went for what I thought would be about a 30 minute ride to the run site . . . well,, two hours later we finally got all 20 plus songthaews to the same spot and off we went into the jungle. It was an excellent trail with several checks, ending at a reservoir where the beer was cold and sun was warming. A great day, but by the time I got back to the hotel, my throat was starting to hurt again, so had to make a short night of it, but did get to see the Lady Boy shows at the venue. Also caught up with several old friends that I had not seen in years . . . good times. https://www.relive.cc/view/vrqDmgmXVLv

    Mekong Indochina Hash Trail day 2 - After a pretty rough week, and a few aches and pains, I decided to take today off for some rest. FP ran the hangover trail today, and she is running very well. Even up the front on many trails. Here is a quick recap of my journey so far after 35 days . . . Countries = 3, Hash Trails = 27, Hikes = 4, total distance = 247 Kms. Probably can add another 30-40+ Kms for just general walking around, but lots of exercise to say the least. Upcoming journeys include Taiwan, Korea, and Indonesia to wrap up 2019.

    MIH Full Moon Run - The postlube event of the Mekong Indochina Hash, one that I had been looking forward to . . . I ended up giving it a miss. Still pretty sick (body aches, cold shivers, fever, coughing, runny nose, congestion, you get the picture), I stayed in bed all day, trying to recover. Tuesday was a scheduled down day, for anything we wanted to do in Chiang Mai, but it also turned into a recovery day. Wednesday morning, we packed up our stuff, and all the new hash give-aways, and off to the airport . . . next stop: ASIA UNITED in Taiwan.

    Train Rumble to Mekong Indochina Hash

    November 12 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    FP got a few hours of sleep , and we packed out for a long day of hash adventure. First we rounded up for the busses that would take on various sight seeing adventures along the way to Ayutthaya. We stopped off at the old city palace, had a lunch, then bussed over to the run site by the great leaning Buddha. I was a mule hare for Whoremonger, and it turned out to be a fun but short trail through various Wats. https://www.relive.cc/view/vevW7Qyj9Gv After the trail, we rode tuk tuks to the place we had circle and beers. Once complete, we strolled out the back door and loaded onto dinner boats and floated the river while feeding on excellent Thai food. Then it was back on the busses, to the train station. By this time, we were both ready for some sleep, so piled our stuff up and jumped into our bunk. Sleep on the train was not to bad, especially since they have upgraded the tracks to the long rails, so no clickety clack, just smooth rolling. We arrived in Chiang Mai on Wednesday morning, and made our way to the hotel and relaxed for the rest of the day. Thursday starts 5 days of hash trails in and around Chiang Mai.Read more

    Back in Bangkok for more fun

    November 6 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    After an amazing trip to Sri Lanka, Wednesday started out with an 11 Km scouting hike with KC. I'm always happy to go hiking, and Thailand has some awesome hiking trails. After a quick snack and a couple beers, it was off to run with the Bangkok Harriettes.

    BH - Another fun trail with the Bangkok Harriettes. Our 81 year old hare Ambrose, kept us guessing on this 8 km scurry around town. Just goes to show you that you are never too old. Well done!! https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4227688429

    Thursday turns out is a no hash day during the week of a Full Moon hash, so opting to go out for another hike. Was 11 Kms of scouting, will be an excellent future 8 Km hash trail. In the evening, I enjoyed an excellent Korean BBQ with some of my Seoul Bruddahs Boob-a-Lube, Virginia Slim, and Rawhide.

    BFMH3 - After hashing in Bangkok off and on since 1998, and although it started in the early 2004, I have finally managed to be in town for a Bangkok Full Moon hash. It was an excellent jaunt through town in the dark, and we had many visitors here getting ready for the Mekong Indochina Hash next week. Good times for sure. https://www.relive.cc/view/vXvLY28ND1O

    After a month of continuous hashing, and 21 trails in less than a month . . . I finally took a day off and skipped the Bangkok H3 to catch up on some much needed sleep,

    S2H3 - Back on trail again with the Siam Sunday H3. Things started out a little crazy, but after searching for a long while, we managed to find the paper. From there on out, it was all pretty good shiggy. Great time on the hash, and we had several more visitors prepping for going north to the Mekong Indochina Hash. https://www.relive.cc/view/vAOZBDQWXoO

    BMH3 - After last weeks trip to Sri Lanka on the Monday, it was back to the Bangkok Monday hash this week. We had lots of visitors on this one, in preparation for the Train Rumble to Chiang Mai, so the pack was at least three times the normal size. Although trail was a little short, it was full of twists and turns that kept it exciting the whole way. Got to rest a bit, as I have to scoot out to the airport to pick up Founder Pounder to join in on this fun hash excursion. https://www.relive.cc/view/vPOpWZXjVRv

    Colombo H3 Trail #2331 - Hukandara

    November 4 in Sri Lanka ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Up early in Bangkok, taxi ride to the airport, and off to Sri Lanka. Made it in as scheduled, but was unable to change my return flight, so it will be a short stay. Sri Lanka is a lovely country, arrived on a bright sunny day (although it had been raining quite hard off and on for several days). Was an easy 45 minute transit from the airport to the hotel, checked in and relaxed a bit with a cold Lion Beer. Got in an hour long nap, and dressed for the hash. AINT ZE BUSH had arranged a tuk-tuk to pick me up and deliver me to the hash a half hour away. As it turns out, it was the final trail of a weekend long event that included a Hash Ball, and this trail was the annual joint run where the ladies were invited to run on the men's hash. Excellent pack of over 40 hashers gathered for the 8 Km trail in the Hukandara area. It got very dark towards the end of trail, but we all managed to find our way back to the house, where cold beer and snacks awaited. After cleaning up a bit, we had a rousing circle in the back yard, with a hash bag give-away, and a fully catered dinner. After filling up, and quenching my thirst in ice cold Lion Beer, Bushy again set me up with a taxi back to the hotel for a quick clean up, pack up, and check out of the hotel. Another 45 trek back to the airport for an early 1:15 am flight back to Bangkok. Awesome day, will definitely go back to Sri Lanka again.

    Bangkok H3 Trail #2209

    November 2 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Getting lots of great exercise, and lots of rest, here in Thailand. Have been able to get in 14 trails and two big hikes over the past two and a half weeks. Last night was yet another interesting trail on the outskirts of the city. With the trip to Japan, that makes 18 hash trails in three weeks . . . time for a change of scenery, so it is off to Sri Lanka tomorrow.

    Another Amazing Week in Bangkok

    November 1 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    S2H3 – After the festivities of the Men’s hash on Saturday, it was off to the Siam Sunday H3. Yet another awesome trail that found numerous dirt tracks and hidden pathways in and around the city. I am a paid up member of the Men’s Hash, the Monday Hash, and the Harriettes Hash, but somehow missed the Sunday Hash, so made my contribution, and now completed the set. We had about 30 hashers turn up, and the weather held out just long enough to complete the circle (we did have lightning and thunder rolling in towards us as a warning). As we sat down for dinner, the sky unloaded and the wind blew, and after about 15 minutes it was gone. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4197474826

    BMH3 - My buddy Rawhide set a super shiggy trail this evening. Lots of narrow shiggy trails along klongs and patty dykes. Had a little problem at 3/4 of the way through, when the in trail got a little close to the out trail, and some of us were looping for a bit, but we figured it out and made it back in after dark. Fun times in Bangkok. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4200324501

    No hash on Tuesday, but I did go out on a 16 Km + scouting hike with Boob-a-lube for over 3 hours. This is the longest hike I have done since (well, you know). It started out an expected 10 Km hike, but soon turned into an exploration as we took some new turns. It was a great day. Later that evening, we joined the hash gathering at the Kiwi Pub on Soi 8. Good to see some old friends there as well.

    BH4 - Not sure whether it was the 16Km hike yesterday, or that I am finally off the blood thinners . . . but I was not feeling so great before the trail tonight. I decided to walk, but after a couple Kms, everything started to feel good again, so was able to run a bit. A short but fun trail from the Ladies, and many dressed up for Halloween. Good fun in Bangkok. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4206461310

    BTH3 – Halloween. Trail was disappointingly short, but it was all in the dark, so it had some mystery all its own. Good circle, and fun chatting with the pack. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4209492177

    NH3 – An unexpected opportunity popped up, YKM was in town and called a Nonthaburi H3 trail. So off we went. I have not run with the Nonthaburi H3 in 17 years, but it was good to see YKM again. When I first ran with the NH3, there was this horseshoe that was used to determine the next down down, but alas . . . the horseshoe is no more. Unfortunately, the trail on this day was a crap shoot. We actually never found the trail after the first check, and ended up running around looking for trail for the next hour. The only mark I saw after 7 Kms, was a beer stop at a bar about 200 meters from the finish, which had just been abandoned by the hare. Back at the finish, we had several beers and talked about the old days. It all turned out to be a great evening. https://www.relive.cc/view/vMv85y9ZKPO

    Haring the Bangkok Men's H3

    October 26 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    My 12th trail in two weeks since departing Hawaii, and I got the opportunity to hare this one. It was a brilliant trail set up by Boob-a-Lube. It was an excellent runners trail, all flat, with numerous checks. Happy to just be a mule for a change after so many lead hare occasions over the past 6 years in Hawaii. Fun times for sure.

    More Hashing in Bangkok

    October 25 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    BMH3 - After an awesome trip to Pattaya, it is back for more fun in Bangkok. First off, it was a spin around town with the Bangkok Monday H3. From the Zap Station, trail made the anticipated zig zag through the klongs and alleys in fine fashion. Unfortunately, our hares overlapped last Thursday's trail for a bit. At first it was fine, but instead of clearly marking the departure point, they used an intersection as was done on Thursday, which led the FRBs off in the wrong direction following last week's trail. The pack milled about for nearly 20 minutes before giving up and making their own way back to the start. It was a good time, but . . . 😊 https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4178139107

    On Tuesday, Boob-a-lube and I went out for a scouting hike to hare the upcoming Saturday trail for the Men’s hash. It was an excellent 10K hike in the sun, with little shade, but sure made the beer taste great at the end. Looking forward to setting this trail on Saturday.

    BH4 – On Wednesday, it was another excursion with the Bangkok Harriettes. Another interesting trail through the klongs and streets of greater Bangkok. I actually cracked the 12 minute mark (11:40) for a mile, for the first time since the surgery. Getting stronger and stronger . . . my wind is getting better each trail. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4184407318

    BTH3 – It was another super humid evening, but a great trail. The mapped track on this trail does not even begin to display the intricate web of alleyways we weaved in and out of on this trial. The hares managed to find every little back alley and street on this city hash. A brilliant live hared trail full of fun. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/4187928820

    Day trip to Pattaya Jungle H3

    October 20 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    It was a long ass drive from Bangkok (over 2 hours each way), but an excellent trail today with the Pattaya Jungle H3. Over 90 degrees F, and high humidity, but feels so good to sweat it out . . . meaning the beer at the end tastes so good. :)

    Interesting fact about the PJH3, Checks are marked with wooden sticks, with a red X . . . and false trails, with a blue X.

    This makes 8 hash trails over the past 10 days since I left Hawaii. Feeling very good. Thanks to my old Friend Boob-a-lube for arranging transportation.
