When I tell hashers about bashing they always want to know two things: how it differs from regular hashing and how much longer the trails are. I tell them it’s basically the same thing, and that trails take about as long to finish as regular trails … you’re still doing a 1½-2-hour trail; on foot [...]
Ha! Here’s a bit of 1980s hash nostalgia, a hand-typed and illustrated hare guide from the Hogtown H3, sent to me by Toronto hasher Rose eh.
From Rose eh’s accompanying letter: “This was before the internet and email … a fun, hashy read, when times were simpler, but no less beer and shiggy crazed, and [...]
The following emails were prompted by my recent (Not Really a) New Year’s Resolution post. The first one comes from Higgins in Belgium, and I’ve included my response (in blue):
I like your post and wonder to what extent what you’re experiencing locally is representative of the entire hashing community. Getting close to [...]
You’d of asked me yesterday afternoon, I’d have said “what hazards?” What could possibly go wrong with a pre-laid trail?
Repossess Me and Leave It to Beaver and I laid two trails yesterday, Repo & Beaver for the harriettes of Desert Divas H3, me for the harriers of Pima County Traditional H3. Our idea was [...]
Like many hashers, I’m interested in our origins and history. I read everything I can get my hands on. When I go to interhashes, I seek out experienced hashers and ask them for their take on things. I’ve swilled beer and talked trash with old-timers around the world, including Ian Cumming, Bill Panton, and Magic [...]
At yesterday’s Pima Independent Sunday Social Hash circle, I presided over two namings. By way of background, when I founded the PISS Hash one of my goals was to keep it from becoming a circle-centric hash. Short circles, minimal down-downs, no namings, BYOB. The PISS Hash is supposed to be all about the trail and [...]
Yesterday was the 6th anniversary of the Pima Independent Sunday Social Hash House Harriers. Pick’n’Flick and I founded the PISS in February 2003 to offer a simple family-friendly alternative to Tucson hashers.
Yesterday was our 64th hash. We meet once a month, and if you do the math you’ll see we’ve skipped a few months [...]
I scouted trail with two co-hares this morning, Her Majesty’s Ho and Satisfaction Guaranteed. We’re haring the PISS Hash two Sundays from now. This was our first walk-through, and it’s a good thing we did it, because a couple of places we hashed through on a similar trail in 2007 have since been fenced.
