Year of the PigBushy and Moana can always be relied upon to dress up for the theme runs!
Wetland ReserveOne of the hash runs I managed to participate in while at home was within a local Wetland reserve. Beautiful afternoon, although not really the atmosphere for the Full Moon Hash! What moon? We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly despite this lack.
