Houston Hash's 2000th run had been widely advertised
and visiting hashers came from far and wide.
- T H E T R A I L -
The start and end points were a short walking distance (Almost an A-to-A trail)
The trail was laid mostly on the dried-up swamp area which is often frequented by herds of deer
and sounders of feral pigs (which can be dangerous).

The walkers set off on this mainly urban walk
Crossing a springy grass field
Crossing a drainage ditch
Walkers with their dogs
Flood defenses to protect the Energy Corridor oil and gas company buildings
The earthen walls of a massive flood defense reservoir
In a flood situation this reservoir would fill with water and the water would be diverted away in channels

McPisser, the RA needed a loud voice to control a circle of this size!

cowboy-themed Hash-2000 party
The Houston Hash House Harriers will celebrate their 2,000 trail on Saturday, February 20th! 36 years of Houston hashing have all lead up to this moment!
The 2,000 trail will take place early in the afternoon on a Saturday, followed by a MASSIVE party that evening in the heart of Houston. The party theme is RODEO and we’re going to live it up that night! There will be dinner, beer, booze, gimmies, live music, games, and possibly a burlesque show taking place at the party venue!
The party will be in the heart of Houston, near the museum district. We highly recommend using an Uber, bus, taxi, etc. to get there, as parking will be limited. This is not a campout, so if you’re coming from out-of-town, find a hotel, crash space, or dark corner of the party venue to pass out in.
Seriously, this is going to be the biggest one-day party H4 throws until the 3,000 trail in around 18 years from now. You want to be there! Tell your friends and bring out your long-forgotten hash brethern to attend!
