Due to the 6:00 start time, the hare left before ½ of the hounds ever showed up. Change is hard for anyone, and for half-minded hashers who’ve becum accustomed to 6:30 weeknight hashes for the last six years, it’s downright evil. But even after missing Hounds away, NBA and Tequila Tony still managed to find the rest of the pack, who were following what amounted to be one long, three mile harrow that never led anyone astray. Those of us with investments in the chalk industry were delighted to see that ADHD went through approximately 17 pounds of it whilst haring one of the most well-marked trails in the history of TAH3. Fresh off his last hare (see #1139), in which he lost ½ the pack due to a horribly marked trail, it seems ADHD did more than enough over-compensating on last night’s “seeing impaired-friendly” route.
Trail took the hounds through the typical, downtown urban areas, to the east and north of the city center. About 88% of the way into the trail, the hare finally decided to mark the first BN, which was at J’s Lounge on Central. Despite the rainbow colored Bud Light tap and the fact that 100% of the clientele were well-groomed men, most hashers seemed surprised that it was a gay bar. But who has time to judge a pub by its sexual orientation when they offer $2 pints?
The last 1/8 of the trail took the pack south on Topeka to Douglas, where we headed east to Emerson Biggins. Despite PPL’ s insistence that everyone sit in a tiny, fenced-in area next to the outside of the building, the rest of the pack opted to utilize the whole patio, where BOYA stepped in as RA in Dip’s absence and limped through a circle in which NBA earned a Dead Bug to be served at a later date. It was also pointed out AFTER the circle that BOY Anus knew a non-hasher in the gay bar, which all but confirmed suspicions that many people have had for a long time.
The trail was fun, we had a nn return along with two backsliders, the beer was cold, all were gambrinous (look it up), and there was much rejoicing!
