Taos Hash 2019

2019 TAOS HASH NOTICE

TaosMountain

 

Amazed at the success of the 2018 Taos Hash with over fifty Hashers
and buoyed by the support of the Taos Hash Old Guard, I have decided
that the Next Last Taos Hash will be on Saturday, October 12, 2019.
Over twenty regular attendees have already expressed their desire to
attend.  I hope to duplicate 2018’s success with a strong contingent
from all over New Mexico.

The start of the trail will be at 2pm at a trail head parking lot
southwest of Taos.  The trail head parking lot can be found on Google
Maps by searching for “Rio Grande del Norte National Monument parking
CO RD 110″.  Google Maps does not display the parking lot in the
center of the screen.  Make sure you are looking at the marker
southwest of Taos.  The parking lot is reached from Taos by going
southerly on NM68 (Paseo del Pueblo, the main street in Taos, south of
the Plaza) to County Road 110 and turning westerly.  The trail head
parking is at the end of 110.  CO RD 110 is about 2 miles south of
where NM518 turns off NM68. The intersection is marked as the turn to
the UNM Taos campus on 110.  For GPS geeks, the turn onto CO RD 110 is
at 36.347798, -105.635029.

The new trail will be about the same distance, character and
difficulty as 2018’s – about 6 miles, almost entirely developed trails
with a bit more verticality.  Part of the new trail will be in the
same complex of trails that was the basis for 2018’s trail.  Trust me,
it will be a new trail including a beer check that was missing in
2018.  Plus, there will be a Bail Out/Turkey/Old Fart Trail of about 2
miles.

All Hashers are invited.  No advance registration is required, but I
will be asking LATER for e-mailed notice of intention to come.  Hash
Cash will be $4 plus four 12 oz cans of good beer per person.

There will be no competition with the Wool Festival in 2019, but if
you are sure you want to come you should consider making early lodging
arrangements.   There is no Hash Hotel.  A large variety of motels, B
and Bs and short term rentals in Taos are advertised on the web.  El
Pueblo Lodge seems to have attracted a large number of Hashers for the
last two Taos Hashes.  Indian Hills, our Hash Hotel several times in
the past, has been boarded up and condemned..

Friday night plans, if any, are not yet set.  The Final Notice may
contain SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS for a hoped for special trail feature.

Final Notice, including travel suggestions, will be forwarded by next
August or so to the same e-mail lists.  I plan to post that notice on
the Denver Hash Facebook page and hope www.denverhash.com will also
post.

If you know someone who came in 2018 or should come in 2019 and
probably didn’t get this notice, please pass it on and encourage them
to look for the postings and to come.

Northern New Mexico may not be the best place in the world to Hash,
but it’s damn good.
