#1: A general view along the unused overgrown logging trail

(visited by Keith Howard, Kalysha Howard and Kenny Apui)

13-Dec-2006 -- This is a revisit of the site that was tried last June, but at that time due to a logging road being washed away we were not able to get within 1 km of the point. This time we used a different logging road and after a few Kms walking and two hours of cutting and hacking our way through the forest we were able to put ourselves exactly on the confluence point.

The visit was not without it's problems (challenges?). First of all I managed to get my 4wd stuck in the mud due to recent heavy rains on the logging road. On returning to my car after finding the CP it took us half an hour to get my car out of the mud. Secondly my friend Kenny had a nasty accident when he cut two of his fingers half way through when he slipped with the parang (a long knife bit like a machete). Luckily I had a first aid kit with me and managed to bandage him up well enough to survive the ride back to Bintulu and a visit to the hospital for a few stitches. He is ok now and promises to be more careful with a parang the next time...
