Rehashed 20140628 Dipstick

Run: 1093 Hare: Dipstik Venue: Mantin Cohares: 2 + Guitarman (part time)

Run site at Mantin Field

The run and even the weather was very well organized. To knock down the haze the hare somehow managed that it rained quite heavily, but stopped when the run was about to start.

The in-trail was across the field at the sawmill, entering a small path along a orchard and later hitting a uphill gravel road, which was just recently bulldozed to ease the climb. Furthermore along the roadside lovely fruits could be found for those who took the time and had the skills to open them up. Again, big hand for Dipstick’s arrangement!

Not much time was wasted to break a couple of checks. After reaching the top of the hill the trail sloped down for a while and it appeared like it was the home-trail already, but after a sharp right-turn and crossing a little stream another hill had to be climbed. One more check at a birdhouse and further up to the hilltop before a long, steep downhill stretch finally hit the road.

The run was not yet up to Sago’s standard, so instead of turning to the right side he convinced me to run a bit more on the road to the left, before making a U-turn after 10 minutes to stroll the 2-3 km distance all the way back on the road to reach the runsite at 8pm.

Run was rated as ‘good run’, plenty of beer (but still no ‘beer-man’) and good food by onsite caterer.
