Nee-nah, nee-nah

There is certainly a first for everything - last night was a first for me, having to take someone straight from the jungle at Hash, to the hospital!

Since it was our hash, and there was four of us hares - Anna and I volunteered to drive the poor woman (and her car) first home, so she could get changed out of her sweaty hash clothes; and then to the hospital to get x-rays done.
She had slipped in the jungle, banged her shoulder against a big stone, and was in a lot of pain. She is a physiotherapist herself, so she knew it could be something serious. It turned out fortunately that nothing was broken, but she has sprained or potentially torn a tendon.

Apart from that - it was a great hash!
Actually, it was probably the longest (measured in time) hash I've laid, the first people didn't come out until after 1h05min, and the last took about 1h35. We had a choice of two 'outs', one through the jungle, and the another longer one along the road, if you felt like finishing off with about a 3k road run.

A shame that because it's school holidays for the local schools this week, quite a lot of people were away, there was only about 30 of us at the site. But hey, another hash under my belt at least, and one I wont forget in the first place!

For dinner we offered four different salads, three different freshly homemade breads and four different cakes! Lucky for us there was still plenty of food left for Anna and I when we came back from our ambulance run, yum yum yum!
