On an A-to-B run, a truck (Sag Waggon) takes all the hashers kit bags (with their change of clothes, etc) to the end of the run.
Tender Vittles and Putin Pullout laid trail on Sunday morning. Mad Dog drove the Sag Waggon and provided support.
Parson's Nose and Juices Flowing arranged the food and beer for everyone - a big task with so many hashers attending.
Start of the run - the parking area next to the Bear Creek Methodist cemetary
End of the run - at the entrance to the Bear Creek park
Interesting...on the drive to the park entrance - opposite the West Houston Airport - a fine Vietnamese Temple

Parson's Nose and Juice's Flowing are the haberdashers and were selling all sorts of Houston Hash items during the afternoon.
They had hung streams of Union Jack flags between the trees.
