BEFORE THE HASH
The path leading down to the Drafi waterfall - just across from where the hasher's cars are parked
The ravine - downstream from the waterfall
The waterfall is almost visible from this point. A steep path leads down to it.
Hashers posing by the waterfall
Rim Job easily climbing back up the steep path
Back to the main road and the cars. Now the hash can begin.

Sunday 28th January 2018 11am
Hare: Mad Dog
Venue: the formerly [before Sunday ] quiet and exclusive area of DRAFI
Instructions: consider bringing a camera and wearing sturdy footwear..
On Inn: tbd
Mis-Directions to the start:
(A) Coming from Halandri / Vrilissia / Melissia and the South:
Get on Leoforos Pendelis (the road which goes up from Vrilissia to Pendeli Village)
Ignore signs left to NEA Pendeli on the road up to Pendeli
Eventually you enter (Paleio) Pendeli village
There is a sharp left-hand bend with 3 little "islands" in the middle of the road. This is Vasileos Georgiou V street.
After the bend, slow down and pass the first street on the right (called Doukissis Plakentias) which turns sharply back.
Almost immediately you must turn into the SECOND road on your RIGHT called FILONOS street.
Careful, if you turn incorrectly into the third street on the right called Ippokratous you will reach the Children's hospital.
Continue on FILONOS which winds down the mountainside and becomes KALISSION and then LEOFOROS ACHEON.
It's easy - just keep on this road and keep going down for a little over 4km.
After a right bend the road becomes DEAD STRAIGHT AND DOWN FOR ALMOST 700 metres (and due south) as it enters the Drafi area.
Slow down after this bend.
In 200 metres after this bend you will pass a small road on the right called THEMISTOKLEOUS. There is a BUS STOP almost opposite.
In 130 metres after this road, PARK on the roadside (EXACTLY OPPOSITE the small dirt track on the left).
NOTE: Distance from start of FILONOS to the hash parking is 4.5 km
(B) Coming from further North i.e. Kifissia / Kefalari / Ekali, etc.
Find your way to Paleo Pendeli and follow the directions above.
(C) Coming from anywhere else - make your own way
By public transport: Good luck with that
GPS: 38.036516, 23.904965
Or use a map (you remember those funny markings printed on paper?)
Typographically or cartographically challenged?
Lost?? Just plain gormless and stupid???
YOU ARE STUFFED :-)
either go home or call the hare: Mad Dog on 693-251-1339
