Beyond the water tower

Directions (with apologies to JC):
JC: Go to Napong, to the water tower.
You: Ah, water?
JC: Yes, water, in tank near Napong.
You: Napong?
JC: Look  (fill in your name here) this is not a proposition from Wittgenstein. Napong. Water, on tower.
You: Ah si, si, water tower. etc. etc.

Or if you prefer it:
Songkhla Hash House Harriers' run #1860, Saturday 11th February 2017, 4:30 p.m.
Hares: Stick Insect and handsome assistant (from a short list of Kan Kai and Little Tool)
Misdirections: From the Ko Yo intersection take the old Hatyai Road for 4km and turn left at the Kuan Hin traffic lights then go about 6.2km and turn left for about 700m to the run site in the rubber (200 m beyond the water tower) on the left. From Hatyai, take the old road for 13km beyond the Ko Hong intersection and turn right at the Kuan Hin traffic lights etc. Coordinates are 7.071036N 100.611987E. in swish new digital format

HH3's run on Sunday is being set by the Egg family under their Hatyai avatars, Kai Jeow, Moo Sahb and possibly Full Moon if she can be levered out of bed in time. The run site is that which has already served HH3 (on New Years day) and SH3 (2 weeks ago) well this year: From Songkhla, take the Old Hatyai Road for 4.7 km and turn left. Proceed about 10.3 km (i.e. 2.3 km past Wat Khao Kloi) and turn left again. Bear right after 150m and carry on about 2km to the runsite, From Hatyai take Poonakan Rd.from it's junction with Kanjanawanich road for 11 km to Wat Khao Kloi then turn right and go 2.3k, then turn left etc. Coordinates are: 7°0'50.00"N 100°36'18.44"E. in tired old minutes and seconds.


  1. Pity about the swish new format, is this supposed to be decimal degrees, degrees & minutes, or a combination of both.
