Important update about tonight’s trail!! Because of the very poor air quality today, tonight’s trail will be a WALKER – ONLY trail. Trail will begin at Potomac Yard Metro at the regular time and will proceed to Freddies. There will be two shot checks on trail. There will be late sign in after trail if you want to go directly to Freddies. Karaoke starts at 8!
Also, there will be no bag transportation tonight, so please plan accordingly.
The yellow line has reopened, yay! And there is a new metro station for all of your hashing needs and adventures, yay! WMATA is filling holes in its plans, help us fill holes in your hash adventure map and expand your hashing territory by joining us for trail this Thursday.
But it’s so far you say!?!
Geographic Trivia Fact #1: Did you know that the areas now encompassing the entire county of Arlington and the City of Alexandria were meant to complete the diamond in the original plans for Washington, D.C. but politics of the day got in the way? You may choose to think of this trail as exploring the original Southwest DC, with shiny new metro infrastructure to get you there.
But what’s so exciting about Potomac Yard?!?
Geographic Trivia #2: Potomac Yard was once the site of an important rail freight yard, facilitating important north to south commerce. The area is also now known for such hits as: Target, Chipotle, hot suburban MILFs, Total Wine, your awesome hares living relatively close, ending up at Freddies in Crystal City anyway, etc.
If you wanna be thematic, don your favorite state or city affiliated gear as the hash conquers virgin EWH3 territory.
NB: This trail starts at Potomac Yard, NOT Potomac Ave. Don’t end up drinking alone at Trusty’s.
