Holy Roamin' Empress, OVH and Slush Puppie are amongst the precious few (Kuty Pi being another noteworthy example with her spring run a few weeks ago) to come up with new locations and examples of the wonderful variety that the area around Vienna has to offer. In fact, after finishing this writeup I will take off for a long walk myself, to be accompanied by Hash Hound Just Melios. ;-)
Due to brilliant spring weather more and more Hashers came along, some we haven't seen for a long time (Tonto plus daugher, Finger Me with her sister and a few more, including two visitors from a Washington DC Hash who are currently running in Belgrade). In the end it must have been a crowd close to 40 and off we went into the hills, neatly split into a runners and a walkers trail. Scenic and steep ascents and descents were leading us all the way further uphill, allowing for panoramic photos and scenic views. One highpoint in the truest sense was getting up the Troppberg (542 metres) with a look out platform that went up another 50 winds metres. Again, great views.
