World Hash Directory, 14th Edition

Back in the day, hashers treasured hard-to-get copies of Tim “Magic” Hughes’ World Hash Handbook & Directory. After Magic’s death in 1998, the webmasters of the regional and national hash directory sites pooled their efforts to keep the directory alive.

Coordinated by Australia national webmaster D2HD, using information supplied by other regional and national webmasters, [...]


Harriers Mash Trash: 7/25/10

“Summer in southern Arizona” = “small packs” and this morning was no exception. Pick’n’Flick and I headed down to the corner coffee shop to see who’d show for a ride to Summerhaven on Mount Lemon. We got there at 8:15 and grabbed some coffee. About 8:45, Stella the Bi Fella showed up. “I didn’t know [...]


A New Site for Tucson’s Orphan Hashes

Update (7/25/10): I wasn’t happy with the calendar I originally selected for OnOnTucson because it was slow to load and primitive looking. This morning I built a new calendar with Google. Here’s a screen capture (click on it to go to the actual calendar):

Original entry (7/19/10): At least one rider didn’t make yesterday’s [...]


Ra’s Tag & Patch Museum

Ra, editor of the Half-Mind Catalog, has started a tag museum at that site (also one for patches). Two days ago I sent him a bunch of tags I’d scanned earlier. Today I sent him a few more:

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 7/18/10

A small pack assembled at Casa Booger for a promised short trail on one of the hottest days of the year: Deep Dish, Zorro, Citizen 69, no name Dee, Pick’n’Flick, and Wet Toe Job. Flying Booger laid trail through the neighborhoods adjacent to Catalina Highway, even managing to throw in some shiggy and an eagle/turkey [...]


Voting at InterHash (Updated)

Update (7/26/10): I cross-posted a hash list letter from MTM, a frequent InterHash attendee who offers additional insights into the voting process at Kuching.

Update (7/14/10):

Not sure why I didn’t think of this earlier, but if Asian hashers are determined to keep InterHash in their neck of the woods, they’ll overwhelm the vote [...]


Half-Mind Weblog Updates

I’ve been a busy hasher this morning, adding updates to the Events Calendar, posting a new article to the Chalk Talk section, and archiving several recent editorials in the Rants section. Who loves ya, baby? The Half-Mind Weblog, that’s who!

- Flying Booger is fucking off busy!


Our Ever-Evolving HHHistory (Updated)

Here’s the CW (conventional wisdom) on early hash history:

Gispert & friends started the Hash House Harriers in Kuala Lumpur in 1938. The club grew and by the start of WWII in 1941 had run over 100 hashes. In 1946, after the war, returning members put the Kuala Lumpur H3 back together and started [...]
