Run Report - Sunday 13th September 2009

We gathered at Iron Bark Gully, for a change there were slightly more members than visitors.

As some of us hadn’t seen each other for a while, we were nattering about Noosa before we realized that it was 10 past 5, so made speedy start towards the summit in what we agreed would be a bit of a recce of a run.

By the time we reached the top, our Sherpa reminded us that, like summiting Everest, to admire the views for too long is foolhardy and a decent must be started soon.

The track chosen was new to us, but was sign posted and seemed well used.

So we set off down it expecting to exit onto the Samford Road.

As we went further down, the damage caused by the resent Storm Burst that hit the area some months back, meant that we had to deviate quite a bit due to fallen trees.

Hence, we got slower and it got darker. Who was going to question the wisdom of a 5 PM start first?

A decision was made to leave the gully and retrace our steps, and with the appearance of torches the Thirsty Hashers were feeling at home.

Pot luck awaited us, so to the night sounds of the forest.

Next weeks run will be announced tomorrow. On On
