Bowland Bridge - The very appropriately named On Inn R*n

This trail should have been named "Above and Beyond".  Our hares not only volunteered to step in at very short notice as our beloved GM and Mrs GM finally were transported to The Land of Oz, but they managed to upgrade 'just a walk we'd been on' to a great trail with all the requirements of a superb South Lakeland hash.  

Their dedication to duty and detail included several recces complete with tree removing and pruning equipment (sustaining injuries along the way), they provided an Uber Rambo split, (including prizes), the most elegant public footpath, sparkling hand decorated pebbles to mark the route, bunting to decorate the beer stop, sunshine (briefly) and a sprinkling of hail in the circle.

The pre-trail brief was not brief at all, in fact Twisted took the opportunity for a siesta before Hard Astern had finished detailing the minutiae. However the trail kept the front checking rambos guessing - several times - it took a while to tune our vision to the teaspoons of flour and microscopic pink chalk arrows, but no one got lost and it allowed the wimps to short cut across fields after the Front runners had finally completed a circuit of the field to discover the exit stile.

And stiles there were aplenty as the three canine hounds can vouch for, fortunately the four legged hounds were able to scale them with varying amounts of help. The rambo wimp split added an extra 3k to the day - as we had been warned - but enabled us to run through the beautiful estate of Winster House with the most amazing ironwork for fences and gates - not envious at all, but Exhibitionist is buying an extra lottery ticket this week.

The beer stop saw the last wimps leaving as the rambos arrived and the uber rambo split of a freezing ford crossing was attempted by yours truly, Sharp Intake and Large Package.  Sharp Intake caused us all to intake sharply as he crashed dramatically on the slippery ramp into the water - but his young bones could take it and he bounced back up determined to cross the water before me.

Along lanes of fallen trees and through woods of broken branches, Speedbump was heard to foul the air as she wrestled with eye level twigs and brambles and we made our way back to Bowland Bridge, overtaking wimps en route, where the circle was conducted, down downs distributed and prizes presented.

Ready About and Hard Astern have truly earned their haring spurs - thanks from us all - and on on to The Addams Family's Full Moon treat on Friday.
