HASHING STARKERS – It’s been said that hash mores are decidedly different in the United States. Perhaps it’s a desire to cast off the yoke of cultural puritanism that leads at least some Americans to hash in their birthday suits. In any case, opportunities abound with warmer weather. And perhaps this little number from last year will entice you to attend: http://bit.ly/1gSPqqc

Hashing in Kings Landing and beyond the wall? Croatia, with its beautiful coastline and islands, is a wonderful destination in its own right, but the fact that King’s Landing, Qarth and other "Game of Thrones" locations are filmed there make the area a must-see for fans of the HBO series. If you hurry, you can join the Dalmatian Hash Cruise (14-20 June 2014). Additional details: http://bit.ly/1klfo55 and http://bit.ly/1nFaLXf.  But if White Walkers and the Land of the Nights Watch is more your style, contact Automatic Balls, who is in the planning stages of a Hash Adventure in Iceland: http://bit.ly/1kexA1z
