HHHistory on Facebook

Shakesprick’s Hashpaedia is no more (boo!). Shakesprick’s A History of the Hash House Harriers is on Facebook (yay!). Here’s a screen grab of the introductory post:

Actually, the Facebook page isn’t intended to replace Hashpaedia. That, if you read Shakesprick’s post above, will happen in book form, some time in 2017. Meanwhile, [...]

Hashy Links

For some reason the San Diego news channel that owns this video disabled embedding. Clicking on the image will open the video on their web site. Trust me, it’s worth the click!

Over the years I’ve told the story of John Wayne Bobbitt and his connection with hashing to several friends. It’s time to write it down for posterity, before Alzheimer’s sets in.

Pick’n’Flick and I moved to Nevada in 1995 and started hashing with the Las Vegas Resur-Erection H3. Later that year we were at an [...]

Hashing Longevity (Updated)

Some of you may know Grease Monkey from Over the Hump H3 in Quantico, Virginia. I met Grease when I was posted to Okinawa in 1989. He was a fixture of the hash there, and I’ve always believed he engineered my “election” as the Okinawa H3 GM. Grease and his family transferred to Quantico in [...]

Drinkers with a Satanic Cult Problem?

Well, isn’t this interesting?

NBC Nightly News screen grab from 6/2/14

We were watching the news last night when Pick’n’Flick said, “Hey, look at that!” I only caught a glimpse of it before it was gone, but happily the video segment was already up on NBC’s website and I was able to get this [...]

Bordighera H3: a Second Opinion

Most hashers know the accepted history of the early days of hashing, how the first H3 club was established in Kuala Lumpur in 1938, went inactive during WWII, reformed in 1946, and eventually began to give birth to other chapters.
