Hashing Straight, Ten Years Later

I gave up drinking ten years ago this month. Not sure if today’s the exact day, but marking the on-oniversary on Saint Patrick’s Day seems appropriate, so I’m going with it. Erin go bragh!

I came to hashing as a member of a profession with tight camaraderie and similar drinking and singing rituals, flying fighters [...]

A Quilt of My Own

Pick’n’Flick’s sister Robin is here for a few days, and they’re putting a hash T-shirt quilt together for me. I’m pretty excited about it.

Pick’n’Flick’s been putting old hash shirts aside over the years. Actually, she and Robin are using backup shirts … they weren’t able to find the stack of shirts Pick’n’Flick meant [...]

Hazukashii, “Haz” for short, ran with same hash [...]

Half-Mind Interview: Stray Dog

Veteran hashers know my relationship with Stray Dog has been a rocky one, full of conflict and mutual animosity. Newer hashers are happily ignorant of this unseemliness: he and I haven’t mixed it up in years, and Stray Dog, once a major online presence in the hashing world, has by his own choice largely dropped [...]

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 12/20/15

The hares, Wankers Aweigh & Subatomic Equipment, put out the word to meet at the Famous Sam’s on Silverbell & Grant. Word really travels, because Santa Gash showed up, all the way from the North Pole! Also there: Flying Booger, Loose Nut, Deep Dish, Fuck Me … and Hot Legs, to take our photo.

Pedalfiles Bash Trash: 5/17/15

Hash Jive & Pearl of the Andes’ Inca Trail II was everything the pack had hoped for … and feared … and then some. Trail started in the Basha’s parking lot on Kolb and Sunrise, up in the foothills of the Santa Catalinas. If anyone thought beforehand there wouldn’t be hills, they knew better by [...]
