Age of Information

A conjecture. If Tickpleaser would set a run from his home in Tirolerhof/Perchtoldsdorf. overlooking a good part of Vienna, would you trust him if he assured you that the trail would be flat? Runners and walkers friendly? On the last day of August, accompanied by the usual temperature drop by 10 degree to put anyone off from using the Hares swimming pool darkness set in a bit earlier and in contrast to the previous 15 or so runs Tickpleaser started from his house, this trail featured the classic uphill trail right from the start and, after walkers and runners trail were marked (Root CAnal, Holy Roamin Empress, OVH and myself stayed on the walkers trail) there was much more uphill running ahead, in beautiful surroundings, but still. 

After meeting with the runners again, cameth the DEFINITE hill to walk up. That one reminded me of those runs that St. Norman used to set with El Nino, when the latter was still a kid and loved to emphasized has love of torturing inmocent Hashers. Mother Superior, OVH, while crawling up that fateful ascent, found a halfway rotten camping chair which he used right on for the circle. Talking of which, Mr, Pink arrived at the circle when darkness set in and St. Norman and Multiple Entry arrived a bit after a torchlight was the first sign of these two. 

A few words about the circle, which was held deep inside the forest (why?), we ran out of beer in no time. Maybe that was part of the Hares clever tactic to get everyone faster to the outside BBQ in the rain that set in soon after. All in all, nicely done.

All thats well ends well

The Narrow Way

 On to another classic, one of the traditional runs, always set by one or several Morons around the end of August to feast My Pint of Views birthday that occurs during this time and have a glimpse of extended forests around the edge of Vienna. Again, a bit of a long drive coming from elsewhere but absolutely worth the effort. Many years ago, before most of you were born (in the late 1990s) a Vienna Hasher was up to set a run at the Exelberg carpark, which is not too far from the Hares fake mountain hut. That past Hare, his name shall remain unmentioned, simply didn't turn up (and a crowd of 30+ was waiting). Somebody, I forgot who it was, had a few bags of flour in his car and Cardinal Munk pulled me away to volunteer me me to be his Live run Cohare, a task we excelled at back then. Nowadays, no chance. This was one of the first times I got to know and appreciate this area. 

Joyride, Joystick and MPOV were the Hares and, taking in plenty of forest paths, thick undergrowth and the occasional up- and downhill crawl, we arrive exactly one hour later back at the carpark. Since Moehair Richard Kopf, OVH, was biding his time in the forest I took the liberty to conduct the circle for a while. Richard Kopf as the RA carried the second half of the circle on into the beginning darkness. A feature by all means was a rare reappearance of the Famous Pimpsqueak!After the circle, B-B-Q chez Joystick, newish inhabitant of that fake mountain village together with Joyride.

Any old time

 Middle August Monday, right up there on top the Senderstrasse in lovely Stammersdorf, say NO MORE! A truly lovely area that has been graced with runs for many years was used once more by Kuty Pi and Root CAnal. Due to heavy traffic on the Südosttangente I was late and tried to catch up with pack, welll, at least I caught up with the walkers after some 30 minutes. Again marvellous panorama and the reason I am not coming more often to this are with lots of Heurigens is simply that we, on the other side of town in the south of Vienna, also have lots of Heurigen places. And, drinking and driving is a no no. Have a look at the pics took during the run. Funny circle with a visit from former Vindobona Hashers Chucker F*cker and Third World Kiddie Fiddler. 

If you ever happen to be in this are as a Non-Hasher, try the Stammersdorfer Senderstrasse. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
