As you know, I'm a hopeless romantic.. there's many things I miss about my carefree days in Sg Besi.. When waking up at 0600 was a norm rather then chore, eat as much as you can without the fear of gaining inches, a running 2km was actually a sprint.. yup when you're in that shape, life was indeed, carefree..
Anyway, wouldn't it be cool if we could re-live an element of those days.. remember the fun we had when we went for compass marching and jungle trekking.. and those road runs during annual camp! (yes, i am be sarcastic- hoping that reverse psychology would work on you!)
here's my sales pitch..
LETS GO JUNGLE BASHING IN JERAI..
it's simple really-
....leave KL on 19 Dec (Friday)
.... there'll be 4 of us in the car
.... camp fire at pantai murni
.... sleep under the stars
.... Saturday morning, we enter this competition (4 pax per team)
.... we're suppose to run/jog/walk/crawl 42 km
.... in the jungle
.... one of our check points will the PEAK of Gunung Jerai
.... we have to do it within 10 hours
.... we go home
Entrance fee- rm100 per team!
common guys.. it's gonna be fun! I've convinced one of our juniors to set up a team for his batch.. let's set up a team for the Royal 8ths..
Total distance: Approximately 40 kilometers
