I touched on this in the beginning of circle last night, and would like to re-iterate for those who may not have been present.
A friend of mine was pulled over for speeding last week, and ended up spending the night in jail because he’d been drinking. I’d hate for that to happen to a hasher, so some quick notes:
1) Observe the damn laws. Buckle up, use your turn signal and headlights, don’t speed.
2) If you can, get a ride. Easiest way to avoid a DUI.
3) In circle, I won’t make you drink if you don’t want to, especially if you have to drive. Hashing is supposed to be fun, not DUI-Attorney expensive. If you don’t drink, you’ll probably get a little good-natured ribbing. Shrug it off.
4) Also in circle, if you don’t want to do a whole down-down, that’s okay too.
Some hashers might consider this sacrilege, that’s fine. I’d rather be on trail than in jail – how about you?
