6th Annual Bungle in the Jungle Campout and Float
RU Shitting Me’s Hash Compound
With pounding hearts and joyful giddiness the Hash descended like roaches on Leasburg.
The directions to the compound were quite vague, as usual, but once you know you’ve gone over the river and through the woods…to RU’s house we go. Arriving on/in various forms of transport from all over the universe (yes, we had aliens….ask Dapper to show you his green card…it’s really fun to do this in front of the water patrol…), the virgin GM, Cliff Bang Her, greeted the masses. Anytime you have to pass junction H/MM, you know it’s gonna be a grand ole time. And it was.
Camp started to take shape in the sweltering heat with tents and vehicles every which way. Halley’s Comet (having taken lessons from Dicksmith) won best stage design with his giant inflatable illuminating snowman, Christmas lights and front parlor complete with a linoleum yard. Worst thief award goes to Skunk Chaser and Mudpacker who decided to relocate Frosty to a better neighborhood late Saturday….With Halley sitting watching them, the fierce duo pulled the plug on the main source of light over the camp, and tiptoed…yes, tiptoed like huge ballerinas to hide Frosty…Ever patient Halley just shook his head.
It is always so phenomenal to see old friends and make new ones over beer…and more beer…and more beer…Needless to say, Friday night was a helluva reunion.
The wonderful king-size pools were pure inspiration. (Did anyone else notice we rejected the square pool as a tribe and only circled the circle?) They were the place to be gathered unless we were fireside. Speaking of which…
Pees Like a Princess takes the evening’s award for Biggest Dumbass, I mean, Manly Hasher, by becoming the first Bungle Burning
Dapper Sapper and Do My Butt got married in circle. Something to do with beer which was very hard to follow…so we drank more beer. Dapper finally got a lap dance he didn’t have to pay for when various harriettes showed him the love. (Who is making that call this week telling his company he has a family emergency here in MO that prevents him from leaving?)
Whack On, Whack Off taught us the Japanese word for penis…ready…ching-ching. Isn’t that cute? Chings out, chings out, chings out for the queens.
Many notable and unmentionable events transpired…ok, I admit, I can’t remember the rest of the night…
With remarkable coordination and preparation and struggle, the Hash scurried to gather at the appointed hour of 9am…yeesh. Like school kids on the first day of kindergarten, we frolicked and waited…and waited…Did someone remember to order buses? And we waited some more. Finally, yahoo, we loaded up…and then waited to fill out more forms in blood in triplicate…Don’t they know if we get hurt it’s our own damn fault? And we were off! Songs broke out and comedy ensued. We took numerous branches to the face through the windows as our Marty Feldman eyed bus driver managed to hit every tree he could find. He was punishing us for singing Jesus Saves, no doubt.
As we loaded up the canoes, anticipation high, we pushed off into the pristine waters. Or not. Somehow WIL-FM decided to besmirch our high holiday by inviting every family within 700 miles to float the
Lots of lots of sandbar stops kept us somewhat together (Meta Arsehole and Hump Up the Volume took off thinking they were behind the pack…we never saw them again.). We entertained ourselves with lots of water toys and big breasts popping out all over. Flossit with a Faucet, Give the Bitch a Ring, and Bitch Makes Me Sick tried to poke our eyes out with those things. In grand style, this trio arrived at the on-in topless…and knocked the birds out of the trees.
Have Bob Will Travel shocked all of us by getting her ‘do wet…But she was nonplussed. Her playful antics amused us all (did I mention she was drinking?)…she was very cute. And she flirted a lot.
Lazy Ass made his virgin float, as did Whack On, Whack Off. Lazy loved it so much, he now wants to captain his own ship. With Whack as his first mate…ew. Actually, Lazy wins the Most Agreeable, Patient Hasher award. He never bitched that Help Me I’m Wet, or I (Pi Whole) hit him in the head with the oars 75 times, or that we left him sitting for seven hours in a puddle from spilled beer, or that we banged him really really really hard on the shins when hitting a tree. He later said the first part sucked, the second part was alright, and the last part was long. Next he is trying skydiving. What da ya think?
There was sex on trail…possibly Sand Angel and good PMS? Maybe just a rumor, whatever. And how can you fall asleep on trail? GBar, Bob, Sand Angel and some guy they can’t remember who all fell asleep on the rocks at the food stop. Ah, they are so cute when they are passed out.
Hot Blood craves attention, so he loaded a keg in his canoe. Turned out to be a chic magnet…a 14 year old chic magnet. We may have to rename him Ped a file. He had young girls doing keg stands (hold upside down by ankles over keg and feed beer). KNaked was ever so helpful and held some fillies for HB…and bit a few butts near his face. Ok, we may have to rename him Ped a file in training.
Follow the Urine Trail proudly, and incestuously showed of his blood brother who just happened to be floating the Meramec that day too. How do you run into someone you know on the river…it’s not the grocery store. Anyway, we immediately liked the brother and offered to trade him for Urine. Which made Urine’s bottom lip stick out…ok, we’ll keep you. Stop crying. We didn’t mean it. Much.
Three Ring Sperm Kiss and Bumper Thumper taught us all how not to float…they mostly dragged and dumped…a lot. Dapper Sapper and Ho-Lateral Damage took lessons, and took a spill, too, then tried to deny it. The pool in their canoe was a dead give away.
Do My Butt and Hummers caused quite a stir with their custom little sparkly shirts complete with monikers. Civilians loved seeing “Do My Butt” and “Hummer” emblazoned on two cute girls…But then they went down the mudslide in white shorts. A brown butt kinda ruins the romance. Not to mention DMB took to puking. That ruined the mood too. But we patted her head and kept drinking.
Whiney amused us by trying to catch a Frisbee with his head…he is so competitive with learning new tricks and all. We pulled him away from the sharks drawn to his blood, and he was fine, don’t worry.
Some one we won’t name (Flash) commandeered a canoe not belonging to him…he later wondered whose it might be…
With the Hash growing hungry, Cliff puffed up his chest and announced he was heading out to fire up the dogs. More playful water fun ensued. Loading up, the Hash smacked its group lips, and dreamed of lunch….for another two hours. Passing one perfect sandbar after another, we began to wonder if Cliff had been abducted. Arriving at the canoe company’s rocky populated take-out, low and behold…there was Cliff sweating over the open fire. As Postage Tramp aptly observed, “Cliff Bang Her never met a sandbar he liked.” So the Hash pants him, dunked him, and put his drawers on ice. Knock-kneed, Cliff flopped around pleading for about an hour for cover, claiming he was scaring the little children nearby. Which was true.
Sometime during our snack stop, a search party was sent out to look for Windows NT. Seems someone had stolen hers, and VH1’s canoe, and they had to swim for two hours. She was found…very tired on a sandbar up river. HMM, wonder who took their canoe?
Speaking of racist behavior, Postage…what was that thing you and bad PMS were doing after teatime? I seem to remember you saying you couldn’t be beat by Lazy Ass again, and paddled like a madman to beat him into the on-in? HMM. Funny how you didn’t do Accusations at the circle that night, isn’t it?
Someone brought a breathalyzer, and it was great fun seeing who should be in a coma. I think Fe Fe was winning with, like a .4 (.08 is legally drunk for those of you not watching the news and stuff). Then we tested Ho-Lateral Damage. He blew a .6. Doesn’t that mean you’re dead? And of course, since he was so drunk, we stood him over the burning coals and had him flip the corn ears. What? We would have called 911 if he died. But he didn’t…so we drank more beer.
With a little alcoholic fuel, Follow the Urine Trail did an impression of Mary Lou Retton as he flipped into seven inches of water. Quite a few Hashers got damp. Later he improved his performance with an Esther Williams impression as he belly flopped into the pool, and got a few more Hashers pretty wet. Not sure if he did a good enough job cooling everyone and their dinners off, he did a repeat flop. I believe I heard “note to self, remember not to invite Urine Trail.” We eventually forgave him, but not until seriously considering that brother exchange again.
Cliff got a second dunking-this time from Calvin Klein. We considered putting them in the brother exchange, too, while we ate our wet potato salad.
Around this time, we were pretty sleepy, drunk and full, sitting around the pool and the fire…just starting to doze off, when someone said, “Has anyone seen Puss and Boobs?” Dribble n Spits mentioned he had…back some 5 or 6 hours ago. Seems they were co-boaters. After some time on the sandbar, Dribble was ready to go but Puss wasn’t…so he left her there. No one remembered seeing her since. We could all see it…P&B thought she’d just catch a cab later…
So we thought about going to look for her as we drank a beer…then we thought about her some more and drank some more beer…then Help Me and I decided to go see if she was walking back from the canoe rental or something. We happened to run into the canoe dudes, who said, yes, they recalled seeing a very drunk dark haired girl floating on a cushion. They had kindly put her in a kayak and sent her on her way. And yes, she kinda looked like she could handle the kayak…why, had she never manned a kayak drunk alone on the darkening river way? So we set the flag back up, hoping she hadn’t already overshot it and ended up in
Sometime later, we circled up for the most momentous of chalk talks…There were three Hashers with no life’s at all laying their 300th trail with the Big-Hump together. Norman Bates, Duzzy Cum and bad PMS finally hit the big 300. Whatever. Of course, having drank some beer, the hounds set out too soon and caught
Then we were off again, some running, some walking, some auto-hashing down to the river where we had more beer and swam some. Then we had more beer.
At the on-in we circled up. The Hares had to drink because there is something wrong when the least whiny of all the hares is bad PMS. But Norman and Duzzy had kissed and made up, and we drank some beer. They were given a most wonderful headband christening. Cliff, ever so thoughtful, knew they may be chilly in the 90 degree heat, so he gifted them with cozy fleece jackets. The hares were thanked for the lovely hash bags given to the first 50 paid for by said hares. And everyone admitted they loved their miner’s baseball caps. Then we kicked them out of circle.
Celebrating five runs was: Dribbles, Messiah, Calvin, GBar, and good PMS. Other significant runs: Nurse Hashshit-30, Dapper-44, Help Me-66, Cliff-77, Urine-120, and Postage-280, Shiggy Shaggy-10, Lock Nut Monster-10, Halley-25, Puss n Boobs-50, and Pepole’-69. Shiggy had to be resuscitated when he tried to drink his beer and nearly drowned. We couldn’t stop laughing to help him, and he eventually recovered.
PMS KC had to drink for something, but a fart bomb made us all gag and no one could hear with the smell.
The KC Hashers had to take the trophy back, cause it’s their turn to throw a kickass party.
All the Virgin Bunglers had to drink, and those that were at every campout, and those going to
Just Jeff got named with limited help from bad PMS…who had many brilliant ideas, if only she could remember. He will forever more be known as Malt Lick Her.
We did every version of Swing Low we knew and then we drank some beer.
And then more stuff happened. But I’m tired now. If anyone wants to finish Sunday…tag you’re it. If I didn’t mention you, then one of three things happened. Either you didn’t do anything notable (read stupid), your friends didn’t tell on you, or I don’t remember.
Respectfully submitted by your loving scribe,
So... on to Sunday
First, I have to start by saying this was the year Big Hump broke with tradition, and I must say, I wasn't real happy about it. First, there was the trail on Friday night that was soooo short, it made all the penis's I saw all weekend look 2 feet long. Looking back, probably not a bad thing, and maybe that was the point after all, but still, so totally non-traditional. And then we never made it to the river for the topless beer stop. In fact, was there even a beer stop on Friday night??? And then we didn't have a topless circle. I want to know what
the heck happened to all the topless Big Hump events? And then circle was short too, and EVERYONE knows Big Hump circles are never too short. And then Saturday, no apple pies!?! How could we forget the apple pie
fixins?!? And then of course we by-passed every sand bar on the river.
However, this is where breaking tradition gets good. By-passing all those crowded sandbars put us right at the point where everyone else was getting out behind us, so though we were in one of the busiest places on
the river, we were finally alone, and throwing disc and football in the water was the highlight of the whole camp out to me (well almost anyway).
And then its Sunday, and the hare gathers us all together at I am barely done taking my tent down, and the guys with hang-overs are just barely starting to crack their eyes open, but he says he knows some
people have a long drive and he knows they want to participate, so we have to get started early. He swears that though trail is A to B, and we have to be trucked to the start because its about a mile away, it will be short and everyone will get on their merry way in no time at all. As we all know, never, ever, ever trust the hare. Now those of you who have been to the big hump camp out before know that on Sunday, our traditional hang over hash is usually a walk around the outskirts of the camp ground doing shots of every imaginable liquor every 10 feet or so. In fact, I remember hearing about one year when a bunch of people ended up naked in the shower doing all sorts of illicit things, but sadly, I wasn't there that year. J However, on this particular Sunday,
of this particular year, the truck ride alone to the start of the hash was about 10 miles long... this should have been our first clue. I was beginning to think we had decided to give Bell Scott a turn and were on our way to
well way longer than anyone in the hash, especially for a hang over hash. In fact, trail was so long I don't even remember seeing a penis much less one that was 2 foot long. And finally after about 3 miles we make it to the river, and the water felt so good (and this from someone who hates water). And the circle was so fun! The FRBs, Coppus and Whiney were properly rewarded, and those DFLs (I think it was everyone from KC) were equally rewarded and then was more beer and rewarding and beer and rejoicing and did I mention beer?, and the only bad thing that happened was we eventually ran out of beer. To me, Sunday was the perfect end to a perfect hash camp out, and I sure hate it for all you guys who had 8 hour drives in front of you, but I for one, hope we continue to make traditions as good as this.
