Hashing to new levels

This is about the benefits of scrounging. Although I did not know I was doing that at the time.

I was out the other night at Hash House Harriers. No. This is not a version of the infamous AA. For those of you who have not heard of Hash, it is a group of like minded individuals who have an interest in running and drinking (not necessarily in that order). It is international and has been around since just after WWII (hence we have had the name far longer than the drug).

The definition of a hasher is 'a drinker with a running problem'. Anyway look it up, they are everywhere.

Back to the story. I was talking to a mate at HHH the other night and he asked me what my next Woodworking purchase is to be (San Miquel is a Cabinet Maker)(did I mention that when you join HHH they give you a Hash Name). Anyway I told San Miquel I was in the market for some dust extraction and he said he had a Festo (now known as Festool) Dust Vac that has been sitting in his workshop for 4-5 years not working.

So a quick trip to the workshop, another trip to my mum's partner who is a electrician, and yet another trip to the local woodworking tool shop for a hose and 'Wa La' (not sure if that is how it is spelt). A photo speaks a thousand words.

Fan-ta-stik!
You got suction, I can see the floor are almost more clean than my apartment, so I guess it works…
It's wonderful, and will spare you for plenty of time with the old fashion cleaning.
Congratulations.

Interesting story, the only thing I wanted to point out is hash has been around a lot longer than 50-60 years ;) For instance, here's a book written in 1857 called The Hashish Eater. Wikipedia has a few other references as well.

I lived in Germany for 3 years and was impressed with a similar group. It was called Volksmarching and set up all over the country (at least in West Germany when I was there) in 1, 2, 5, 10 kilometer routes. In local areas the route would change a number of times a month. Elderly and women with strollers took the shorter. Some actually ran the longer ones. Anyway, the other thing common to all of the ones I attended was a beer tent at the end. I'm talking 30 feet by 50 feet minimum. Never could find out if the routes came first or the beer tents. I never did stay until the tent closed for the night.
