Hatyai Full Moon H3 run #136 takes place tonight with the run starting shortly after 7:00 p.m. and a blow out/camp out to follow. The rego is the usual 50 Baht for active runners but 100 Baht for returnees who haven't been to a run in the last 6 months and new runners. The run site is at the old scout camp on Khuan Lao - the road is shown on the HH3 map on the post below or for the verbally inclined, from Songkhla take the old Hatyai road for 4.6k and turn left for 8k then turn right (at Wat Khao Kloy into Poonakan) and go about 5k. Turn left just before Wat Tung Ngai (if coming from Hatyai the turning is at about 6k, on the right and just after Wat Tung Nai) and follow the road for about 3.2k then turn right at the hash sign and follow the road/track until...
Then it's up to you. If you are happy driving up the hill then keep going until you hit the run site at about 2k. But if you would prefer to let someone else do the upward bit, then get to the quarry on the right about 1k along the track just as the it starts to go seriously uphill (which HH3 generally use as a runsite) and park there. Gashole's pick up will be running a shuttle service up the hill from about 4:30 p.m. at 30 minute intervals. If you arrive at the quarry and there is no sign of the transport, don't despair, but give Sex Printer (081-7666682) or Kai Jeow (081 9691227) a call and they will comfort you! The last trip up the hill will be at 7:00 p.m. just before the run so if you think you are going to be cutting it a bit fine give us a call while you are on the way so that the truck can be asked to wait for you.
Some of the usual stuff applies: bring a hand/head light if you intend to do the run. There will be a lot of beer all of which will be free and there will also be some ladies drinks as well, so unless you are seriously averse to Leo or Chang but feel the urge to contribute, err on the side of bringing alternative alcohol, i.e not beer. The Hash kitchen will be in action but contributions of food, snacks, hangover cures etc. will also be welcome.
If you seriously feel the need to go home after the run then you'll probably have to either take your own vehicle up or walk down the hill if you have left it in the quarry as there probably won't be any service down after the run. In the morning the shuttle will resume to get people back to their vehicles but if you need to be away early then you may have to make your own downward arrangements (but hey, it really is all downhill!)
If you are camping then bring a tent or at least a sleeping bag/blanket as there is some covered accommodation for the tentless. Whilst the singing arrangements are not know, we can't promise to control Scud's enthusiasm so if you are a sensitive sleeper some ear plugs may be advisable!
