was a sweltering and humid (a.k.a. totally normal) June day, when the hash
descended upon the thriving metropolis of Dupo, Illinois,
greeted by the familiar sound of sirens.Much to our surprise, they weren't coming for us...or at least they
didn't find us.We had the pleasure of
greeting Chippy Foreplay, visiting us from New
Delhi, and Witty managed to show up with Just
Liz just in time for the Grope Shot, so she couldn't deny her presence.
was a lot of pavement pounding and a lot of waiting for chicks to show up at
the chick checks, until Whiney got impatient and started just erasing the
center dots.Eventually, the pack was
led to one of Dupo's many fine watering holes, roughly on the opposite side of
town from our starting point, where we were treated to only the finest:
draws of something roughly resembling beer.Norman Bates appeared like magic at the beer stop, only to disappear
again, like smoke in the wind.Monistat
said something funny that will be less funny if I repeat it, then we hit the
trail back, a straight, 2 mile shot of traffic-dodging fun.Somewhere along the way, the temperature even
made it to a point that could almost becalled pleasant.
the walkers, despairing of the distance to the planned beer stop, made an
impromptu one at the VFW.Someone named
Paula bought them beer, and there was much rejoicing.
on-after featured free wings, which, to some people's inexplicable surprise,
disappeared really quickly.The early
hasher gets the
wings.Finger My Arsenal bought some pitchers to say
town for Florida.Thanks!Some other really fun stuff happened, during which I was probably
abducted by aliens.
