Farewell Black Mamba (Play the video)
Mountain Goat's trail
We start at the site of the abandoned 120 furniture factories showrooms
(Sadly we discover that the McDonalds nearby is no more)
Is this what Mountain Goat calls flat?
Great view of Mount Parnitha in the background
Getting a bit tricky
Rim Job scurries down through the earthern channel
Rear Entry's turn to cross the stream
Looking back topwards the ex-factory showrooms & showing the vibrant greenery
Hashers veering to the left and avoiding this ramp
Avoiding the mud
Are you on?
Let's get off the rails - there's a train coming!
Black Mamba doing his thing on the ramp (see video)
Spring time flowers everywhere
Wide open spaces
Rim Job & Mountain Goat
Rim Job followed by Mad Dog
Great hashing country
Helicopter enthusiast prepares his model and then shows us some amazing flying
(including flying backwards upside-down)
A bit of short-cutting?
We find a tortoise & Rear Entry holds it up for a photo
The Tortoise and the Hare (get it?)
Into the shiggy
Rocket Socket getting the thorn treatment
Rear Entry returns climbing a steep ramp after missing the trail
Not a good time to cross the railyway tracks!
...and on up again
Judas trees in bloom (traditionally at Easter time)
Back over the stream
Mad Dog stretches out to reach the stepping stone
Mountain Goat - the hare's down-in-one
Drinking beer is no punishment after a run on this hot day
Bouboulina gets a Flying Club DIO for falling and cutting her elbow
The snake was THIS long say's Black Mamba
Black Mamba's farewell DIO - he's just returned from Toronto, Canada
and is retiring to Edinburgh, Scotland
Thrice has emerged again with the warm weather (has he been hibernating?)
Mad Dog, Black Mamba and Thrice
Mad Dog is wearing new trainers so...
...he has to drink from one of them. Luckily they are not muddy inside!
En Athames taverna
On the National Road sliproad, heading towards Athens from the western side of the Varibobi bridge.
Good value. Lots of meat, etc for 12 euros each
