Guest Post: On-On to Hogtown

This entry was posted by Burnt Sox, a Washington DC hasher:

7 Minutes, Aaliyah and I are ready to take to the road for IAH ’05. I’m going to have fun but, gosh darn it, it’s not going to be the same. This is the first hash road trip since our daughter was born, and [...]


Guest Post: a Hash of Her Own

This entry was posted by Burnt Sox, a Washington DC hasher:

Hashing is not a pretty sight, but she is.

At a camping event last week, I noticed a hasher I see every few weeks. She’s notable because she is divinely gorgeous: lithe, flowing hair, eyes that are liquid invitations to her soul. Sure, she’s [...]


Guest Post: Ten Years Later

This entry was posted by Burnt Sox, a Washington DC hasher:

Six interhashes, 10 years, still on trail.

jHavelina HHH, the regular Saturday afternoon hash Old School HHH, another Saturday afternoon hash Mr Happy’s Larrikins HHH, a [...]


Guest Post: Backyard Projects

This entry was written by Gopher, a Virginia hasher:

How much home-made crap is built for your hash?

So I’m in the yard, working on one of the many projects that Piggy has on my list, listening to the race when my driver hits the wall and my mind is now a little freer to [...]


Guest Post: Another Letter from MTM

Actually, it’s a letter from KumOnMyLeg to MTM, forwarded to me by MTM.

I asked MTM to join our blogging collective because she’s a world traveler, someone who hashes in places the rest of us can only dream of. She’s also a good writer – a very good writer, as you can see in her [...]
