It’s fun to get mail from Half-Mind Weblog readers, but I have mixed feelings about this letter:
Stumbled across your Hash Rants last night, and, suddenly, I’d spent a good hour or so reading.
I very briefly participated in hashing in my town, over about 6 months, late 2012-mid-2013-ish. I quit due to some of [...]
An interesting thing happened after I posted yesterday’s bash trash. The boyfriend of one of the hashers let me know he was upset I used her hash name in the writeup. I’m still trying to figure out if he wants me to delete it and use another name instead; he hasn’t answered.

I skipped the monthly motorcycle hash yesterday to go riding with the Tucson Bash. This is the new bicycle hash I blogged about in [...]
I don’t remember if it was an Iguana or a Colorado InviHashional, but there I was. sitting naked in a hotel hot tub with fifty other naked hashers, unwinding after a long day on trail, when some asshole — one of us, but still an asshole — fished a flash camera out of his bag [...]
