The only time we could really dry off were on the days the expedition attempted to re-group. Putting on wet riding gear every day became the norm.

Day 4

Gunung Saran to Nangah Pinoh





I wake up just as it starts to gets light. It was a pretty uncomfortable night as I was sleeping right on top of the gravel of the trail, but I managed to get a few hours in. I definitely had it better than some of the crews who had to sleep in their vehicles in the middle of the swamp.

Its stopped raining and there is no engine noise.The camp is quiet and I lie on the ground listening to monkeys hooting and calling to each across the hills above us. The atmosphere and early morning view I have is incredible.



I go for an early morning stroll........



Looking back across the footbridge we used yesterday towards the camp where I slept. I pass the 4x4's and it looks like all the Fords and the Mitsubishi Titon made it out and up during the night. The crews are still all asleep inside their vehicles.






I walk up the hill a bit enjoying the solitude and the noises of the jungle as it wakes up. Already the temperature is rising quickly and the undergrowths steaming. Below I hear Samysir's loud speaker crackle to life and then "Bangun Bangun" echoes around the hills.



Didi looking for breakfast in his box. Each rider was allowed to bring one box like this. Inside is food, medicine, spare parts, oil, tools, octane booster/ gas cleaner, batteries and other miscellaneous crap. We also have a duffel bag / dry bag for clothes and a tent.

Before I know it we're breaking camp and then have the briefing for the days trail.
All the vehicles have radios and Samysir tells us that there are 4 or down below in the swamp. There are 6 or 7 waiting to go down. All of the others spent the night in or beside the rivers we crossed yesterday.
Due to the customs bond we have to try to stay on schedule so those already across will push on. The others will have to try to catch us . Hopefully we will regroup tonight in Nangah Pinoh.



As we leave this Defender goes over the edge. Good luck mate !

Lucky I spot this fellow. My safety jacket obviously reminds him of home.








We leave the 4x4's and ride on. Somewhere in front of us are Sovan and the KLX guy. They had ridden on yesterday not realising the problems the 4x4's would have. We have no idea where they spent the night.











We ride for several hours enjoying the pristine trail. Its magnificent single track winding up and down the hills through the forest.

The trail decends and we are confronted with this view.



It looks like something off an Indiana Jones movie set. WTF ???

Shit

This is one Crazy RR

I have never seen anything like this before, and the most amazing thing is that there are pictures of men up to their eyeballs in Shiite with giant smiles on their faces. Damnit. keep this going - bloody awesome.
