We ran the mountain bike trail at Dyer Park.
I was the hare, because it seemed like a good idea several weeks earlier. It
wasn't too tough, because I work nearby. I stopped by the ABC store for some
beer on the way. I got Milwaukee's Finest, Milwaukee's Finest Light, and
Milwaukee's Finest Ice. And some crappy beer, too. I've ridden the bike
trail many times, so I didn't actually do any preparation other than looking
at a map.
One of the first hashers to arrive was a vision from the past -- Chicken Choker.
He said he still remembered how to hash. Then Dry Hump from Boca, the Head,
I like to think of this picture as "Before and After".
Here's NGB desperately digging through the cooler in search of something
acceptable to drink, and CA digging in his ear for, well, I don't know what.
The trail itself went well. I ran the first loop right past the cars, just
after the pack had left. I forgot to turn on the GPS for the first part of
trail, but I filled it in on the map. DBK almost caught me, as did Yeast.
The second half was across some wide fields full of owls.
We held the circle out on the sideline of the ultimate frisbee field. We
attracted a couple players who came for a beer while they were out of the
game. Chicken Choker kept going back and forth between the field and the
circle. CA had a lot of trail debris on his pants. Good down-downs by
everyone, including Action Man(!).
GH left his hat lying around, so I kept filling it up with chips, and Ayla
kept eating them. GH eventually drove off without his hat, and had to ransom
it back at the bar.
