Athens Hashers in Houston
Tender Vittles, Krazie Puppy, Parson's Nose, Juices Flowing, All Head No Shaft, Hungary Pussy, and visiting - Mad Dog & Doggie Style
Common hazards on trail in Houston
Mosquitoes, fire ants (sting causes blister), snakes (water moccasin), poison ivy (oil from leaves causes itchy rash) [wear long socks]
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.
