The designated scribe didn’t do this joint run (although he was there) so we’ve nicked Hopeless’s report for Little Sai Wan
Diamond Hill to The Love Shack
Hares – Inflato (that’s Oranguwank to us – Ed.) and Yummy Mummy
Dubbed “The X Factor Run” this hash was all about Love Shack visit #10 (X), and not some baloney reality TV show. The promise of Yummy Mummy hospitality brought out a few notable returnees, not least Any Dick Will Do and Smallbone, along with Fourus. This was also a joint run with N2TH3 who honoured LSWH3 with the massive presence of … four.
Starting outside Exit A1 of Diamond Hill MTR, the usual rush just before 7pm as the likes of Sweaty and The Parkys arrived just in time for the briefing. “Single run with on-on arrows including one marked as NNT / LSW”. “So two runs?” asked Frank The Plank, obviously not paying attention.
“Only three checks” were advised by Inflato, “but a number of check backs”. Oh, yeah, we’ve seen an Inflato CB on a Wednesday night … in particular the 1.2km CB at Sha Tin Pass a few years ago. We were not be disappointed by this run’s check backs either.
Wai Chee Kok sped up Lung Poon Street and on towards Po Kong Village Park pursued by Hopeless, Lost In Translation and Smallbone. First check takes the pack into Tsz Wan Shan Service Reservoir, alongside the cemetery. Second check solved by Hopeless as WCK and Burning Lust take the wrong options, and then the start of the up up up. Comes Up The Rear now adds to the front runners as we take old paths through the previous squatter village areas, trail not trodden on for some time.
Anal Invitation and Wanchai Wanker catch up on the long check back up the hill, to cut left onto the contour and another CB already anticipated by Hopeless, up the long steps. Undulating trail, on to Kwun Yam Buddhist Temple and the predicted (929) steps! Check Back just short of Sha Tin Pass Road.
Thereafter a charge home for the last 2km led by Comes Up The Rear, Hopeless and Lost In Translation to the 52nd floor panoramic view of Hong Kong and superb food on the balcony.
Many thanks to Inflato and Yummy Mummy for hosting LSWH3 and N2TH3! – Hopeless
