Harriers Mash Trash: 8/29/10

Summer riding in southern Arizona is only for the hardcore, which probably explains the small turnout for today’s Harriers MC Mash. Or maybe the start was too hard to find.

And We Think We Have It Tough . . .

Check out this “official” list of RULES (!) for laying trail in Singapore. This is a no-shitter, taken from the Hash House Harriers Singapore site. Before you go to bed tonight, thank G for whatever freedoms you enjoy as a hasher and a hare — you could be hashing in Singapore!

With this kind of buildup . . . and a 106-degree forecast . . . you wouldn’t think many bashers would show up. You (and by “you” [...]

Why the concern? Well . . .

Southern Arizona hashers have not experienced, thank Gispert, [...]


Death of a Hasher

Shakesprick emailed this morning to tell me that one of the ten medical aid workers murdered by Taliban in Afghanistan over the weekend, Karen Woo (pictured), was one of our own.

Karen, a doctor from London, hashed with Kabul H3. She kept a personal blog of her adventures in Afghanistan, a blog I just finished [...]
