Caveat Emptor

Every now and then someone complains about an event I listed on the Half-Mind Calendar. My last angry email was from a guy who went on a hash train tour through Russia and Mongolia.

HHHistory: the Italian Connection (Updated)

Update (2/21/12): I just heard a claim that the story of Gus Mackey and the 1947 founding of the Bordighera H3 is false, made up out of whole cloth by some hashers at a later date, and then, inexplicably, accepted by one and all — including Tumbling Bill Panton, who lists the 1947 founding date [...]

We joined HM Ho [...]

Booger’s Hash Bag

A couple of items that have been bouncing around in the bottom of the bag:

Hops, he of Red Dress Run fame, shares my disdain for the widely-used “Drinking Club with a Running Problem” motto. It’s certainly true hashers drink (most of us, anyway). It’s certainly true we traditionally have beer after a trail. But [...]

Road Trip

Last month 2X4 and Skinnidip from Sierra Vista joined us in Tucson for the Pedalfiles Bash. While they were here they invited us down their way for a Super Bowl Sunday bash and party. We decided to take them up on it.
