In the Boxer Hash we try to keep things relaxed and impose as few “traditions” on hashers as possible. On of the glorious traditions of the Boxer Hash is a short July run in verdant green mountains followed by a camping opportunity. This month we will carry on this long standing Boxer staple.
It’s only 7-8 km so wanker walkers should be able to survive. Those who choose not to camp can return on the Boxer bus after the bash as per usual. Those interested in camping that have never camped before or don’t have equipment contact KMML.
Features to look for on this hash include: This is not a dog friendly trail, as well the dogs on this trail are not friendly either. Nut Pirate can personally verify the dogs are tied up but not rabid. Butterflies … goodness they are out in force this year, some spectacular ones too. Honey … it’s honey season, buying the local honey is highly recommended – very tasty (and yes, it’s the Boxer so you won’t be punished for shopping on the hash). We will pass by a replica of Nut Pirate’s home …. those who have seen NP’s ? will be amazed at the similarity. The air is generally better out there (but no promises) … if it is clear, you’ll get a great view from the DingDuGe. Rest assured, the trail contains no spring fed lakes, bears, spiny anteaters, leather factories, unicorns, active gravel pits or maps.
Run Notes & Warnings:
Those who don’t want to camp can return with the bus on Saturday, campers will stay and hike to the cave.
