The sun was shining ( sort of!) as the hashers grouped at the top of Spin Cycle's driveway. Bituman, having received so many compliments about the red frock he wore last week, arrived with his freshly laundered and ironed dress (on a hanger)..to slip on after the run.
Spin Cycle led the runners off and Aunty Lush with map in hand took charge of the walking group. Alternative Route deviated from the group up a side street. The prospect of avoiding a steep section of the road saw Tea Bag and Lost With Space turn and follow AR. When this group eventually reached the Bruxner, AR revealed that the rest of the group had in fact gone in the opposite direction and that all along she was simply doing her own alternative route!
The evening remained relatively fine and the light showers that did occur were welcomed by many as a bit of cool relief.
Upcycler, resplendent in his On On ceremonial hat, called a circle on 'the deck with a view'. Impulse said the run had a deja vu feeling throughout as there were lots of crossing back of the trail. The runners all agreed that there were some hills involved which as we know is most unusual for a Goonellabah run. Polarised indicated that Spin Cycle would be feeling like a lullaby hare as she had done the run twice.
Space Cowboy described the walk. He said it was a most interesting sight seeing walk of Lismore Heights. There was reference to a Baptismal font seen in someone's front garden. Hugme said there was an angel in the font but others thought it might have been a fairy. Perhaps this group was suffering from altitude sickness?
Apparently there was even endangered wildlife spotted ( a millipede )! The HIGHlight of the walk was a visit to the Memorial Lookout which must usually be a quiet and secluded spot because there was a young couple there who were very surprised to see the walkers. Slurr said something about interruptus ....?
Bituman slipped into his dress and presented Rob Wells ( who also appeared quite comfortable in his own red dress) with a cheque from NRHHH for Southern Cross LADS.
Space Cowboy sang a Down Downs for

Lost With Space for 100 runs
