4X4 Matang-Rayu Off Road

On Saturday 10 December 2011 at about 1:10PM eight 4WD vehicles left MJC Batu Kawah New Township in an open convoy for Sungai Rayu in Matang. 

KN1439 the first vehicle to take off

Stopped at Sungai Cina to get into proper convoy

We were supposed to cross Sungai Rayu and camped somewhere near a stream  in the jungle off Sungai Rayu. But after we crossed Sungai Rayu, the road leading to the jungle was blocked that we could not enter without removing the barricade that blocked the entrance. The team, led by SAKTA's President, Mr Joe Bladae, decided not to engage in unnecessary confrontation; so we decided to turn or cross back and camped at the other side of the Rayu River and would take Plan B (i.e. to use alternative route, which we did the following day).

We got ourselves entertained with guitar and songs

The humour session

The scenery when we woke up the next morning 

The crystal clear river

The shower/bathing session

The following day via different route we were joined by tens of other 4WD vehicles. The real and exciting episode was about to begin. But the part about participants was that each and every participant was selfless. Nobody was left to face problem alone. Every hand was a helping hand.

Some needed to be winched to get to the top of the hill

Some made it without the aid of the winch

Getting back into good shape again

By about 3PM Sunday 11 December we were back to the city again. The peace and tranquility of the forest was replaced by the busy city life. 

As this would be the last activity of the club for this year, we are hoping to see everyone again next year with greater spirit. Merry Christmas to those who are celebrating and a Happy New Year 2012 to all.

Wong Rembai/Bukit Lesong Expedition @ Jamboree

Participants's vehicles assembled at Simpang Ubah

5 November 2011 @ 8.47AM we left MJC Batu Kawah New Township in an open convoy. Participants from Sri Aman went straight to the entry point at Simpang Ubah some two kilometers from Sungai Tenggang Bazaar. After a brief stop and also second briefing at Sungai Tenggang Bazaar we proceeded to the entry point at Simpang Ubah. There were 44 off road vehicles assembled here with @ Marshall or lead vehicle QKR 9578 driven by Dixion Kuyor. The event's sweeper was Meek Mape in his yellow BJ60.  Among the forty-four off road 4X4WD we also had Eight (8) motor cycles.

At about 9.00AM on 6 November we left Wong Rembai for home but via a different route. At noon we stopped and had lunch at Radak Waterfall. We exited through Simunjan junction via Sungai Indai junction, which is a shorter journey than the originally proposed Tembawai Enjur route.

Thanks God everyone was home safely, happy and satisfied and of course exhausted.  See you all at the next Rayu Jamboree on 10 December 2011.
