A small band of hard-core hashers turned up for run #1330 on the longest day of the year. It also being the end of the school year, many hashers seemed to be doing other things.

The chalk-talk informed the pack that there was basically one (walkers) trail with the runners doing many a long detour along the way.

ON-OUT was called and the pack headed in the general direction of Knappenfjellet with ON-UP through the forest to highest point at 133 m.a.s.l. There are many WW2 remains dotted around summit area where two German AA units were stationed, Flak Unter-Gruppenkommandeur Süd, Abteilung 801 which was established in 1940/41 and Marine Flak Abteilung 822 which was established in November 1944. As this was not a Bergen Bunker H3 run, most hashers just continued past all the remains of buildings and gun positions without stopping.

The trail headed in the direction of Bjørge before turning back towards the small lake Knappentjernet. The runners (and a few walkers) took the long way around the lake whilst the remaining walkers followed the main path and ON-ON to the Beer Stop. That is to say, one hapless hasher got very lost and was finally found by one of the hares after a lot of searching.

After many a longwinded excuse why he had got lost, ON-OUT was called and the runners set off in one direction and the walkers in another direction. Long before the ON-INN, the walkers were treated to the sorry sight of an ex-GM being transported to the hares abode by car!

In the circle the usual misdemeanours were punished, before the pack fled indoors due to the million+ midgets, where the evening was rounded off with some excellent nosh washed down with beer.
