Hash House Harriers

Recommended Posts

HHH have been around for a couple of years here in Chiang Rai. It is good fun, you meet some nice people and your body has to move a little. And after you have a cold drink (beer, coke, water etc) with your friends.

The May hash is scheduled for Saturday May 20 beginning at 4 p.m.

It will follow shaded trails on and around Doi Khao Kwai, the

hill 4km south of town. Gourmet snacks will await participants. To give us

some idea of how much food to prepare, please call Win (Smoked Wiener) at

01-883-9475. Swimmers may wish to bring optional swimwear. Soap and

shampoo will be provided for post-hash decontamination.

Someone interested?

what else are we doing on a saturday afternoon,

To give you an example how I spend yesterdays Saturday afternoon:

We first went to a wedding in a Christian non-Thai village. It was the first wedding I attended in my life where only softdrinks were supposed to create a good mood.

The long speeches and Christian songs (by singers who hopefully have talents in other fields) were not very helpful either. I don't know if the people themselves were in a good mood, because don't know how they normally are. I didn't notice anything special.

So in a way this was an experience.

Then we went to a real Thai village wedding.

Great! You know the details. It was as you could expect it to be (including the lovely belly buttons of the young and charming 'morlamming' and 'ramwonging' ladies of the band). The newly married couple, beatifully dressed as their little three year old son was, hade great fun themselves.

The Thai village people know how to celebrate, how to have fun. The number of laughters was much higher than at the first wedding. Substantially higher.

Christians, like Muslims, often give the impression of being angry and unhappy. Catholics and Buddhists seem to live happier.

But maybe I don't see this right: I am a former Catholic living in a Buddhist country.

And I love it!

Sorry Soap, but if there would have been a run yesterday, this would have been the alternative.

How hard do you run and how far? Can you walk quitly as well?

Do you have an ambulance following, doctors, nurses, bottles of oxygen and other usefull things?

Is it allowed to have a beer afterwards (or before) :o ?

Limbo :D

Hi Limbo,

In the HHH you run if you like and you walk if you like or make a combination.

And YES, after the run/walk that normally is 6-8 km, we have drinks including beer!

The HHH is not a competition, it is a social thing!

Welcome next month! Normally third Saturday every month!

Directions to the Hash:

Driving directions: Starting at the Little Duck Hotel (the architectural

marriage of Potala and San Quentin), leave by the western entrance, setting

your trip odometer to 0.0.

Turn right onto Phaholyothin Road, heading north toward town.

Take the first left at km 0.6 onto Doi Phabaht Rd. heading west. This T

intersection is marked by a sign for "Napa Lodge." If you miss the turn,

make a U-turn at the PTT gas station on the RH side of Phaholyothin Rd.

Follow Doi Phabaht Rd westward across the runway at km 1.0 toward the

temple entrance.

At the temple entrance, turn left heading south along the temple wall.

Turn right beyond the crematorium grounds at km 1.3 heading west along a

narrow paved road.

Turn sharp left at the King's portrait at km 1.5. Follow Doi Phabaht Rd.

curving generally southwest for two and a half km. Please drive slowly

through the community.

At km 4.0 turn right through a high wooden gate (HHH sign) onto a straight

gravel road heading north toward Doi Khao Kwai hill. Turn right at km 4.2

(HHH sign) heading east on a narrow gravel road past a lumber shed. Park

in the orchard beyond.

The hash will start promptly at 4 PM to ensure that no participants are

left overnight in the deep woods. It will take about 20 minutes to get

from the Little Duck Hotel to the departure point assuming no mistakes are

made.

On On.

Coming from Den Ha you drive the old Chiang Mai Road to the south untill it changes into a kind of sixlane 'superhighway'. There you slow down and start looking for a protestant church at your left side. The soi after the church is Soi 5. This one you take. If you miss it you turn at the Cosmo gasoline station at the right side of the road. It is almost opposite.

In Soi 5 you pass after hundred meters al little barbershop at your left, where also an excellent massage is given. You continue another fifty meters and follow the road in a sharp curve to the right. Fifty meters further the road makes a sharp curve to the left again to give you the feeling that you went straight on all the time.

A little bit more than one kilometer further you will find a very monumental wooden gate at your left with signs of HHH. :o

Limbo,

Is it because they are convinced that they already have the answers to all the big questions in life thereby leaving no more mysteries to ponder? Depressing!

On topic

I understand that the HHH spend a great deal of their time in mysterious reflection. Wrestling with issues such as – Who are we? - What are we doing here? - Will there be enough beer at the end of this run? – Is a fat man’s slow walk more beneficial than a thin man’s sprint? . . .

:D:D Mymechew

....Mymechew suggested.

Another interpretation of your presumtion is, that the Christian answers are extremely depressing. And that their closed believe system doesn't allow them to continue their search.

It must have been very hard for them to admit that the earth is not flat.

That's what they have in common with among others communists: The paradigma of their belief, how earthly it might be, is as holy and untouchable as the heavenly christian one.

So the HHH is a philosophical society! Run or walk with the HHH and you don't have any obligations on the Sunday morning following. I am really curious. I have obligations to-morrow, otherwise I would join for a walk. Some of the guys I know and they are jolly good fellows.

And, as Soap already mentioned: A walk isn't bad, especially as it makes you feel that you earn an award afterwards.

Good Idea!

Thanks Svenivan for bringing it up.
