Eye-level brambles and creepers [use protective glasses]

Tropical storms - frequent lightning [kiss your ass goodbye]

Heat and humidity resulting in soaking-wet T's [some hashers run without shirts]

Land owners with guns

Most trails are A -to- B and live hare
Hashers bring bags with change of clothes, etc. which are taken on a truck (the sag wagon) to the end point - where a keg of beer is also delivered, along with food.
Hash cash is 5 dollars for each hasher. 4 dollars of this go to the hare(s) for the food and beer and 1 dollar
to the MMC.
