Pills for AMS (thank you Zack!) and panadol for general headache. Gatorade for hydration, dates/ whittaker (nyum!) chocolate/ snickers/kitkat for fuelling.
Pole...oh pole....you were my third leg, without you, I would not reach the mountain top and kaki gunung.
I was really selllowww, was seriously worried that I would tear my plantar fascia. Tapi gatal nak proceed with the climb arr..ar..arr. Terima kasih lah hubby for being patient and committedly followed my slow lead. How slow? It was 8 hours from Timpohon to Laban Rata rest house during the ascent (830am from Timpohon, arrived at 420pm).
|About 420pm. Hubby was happy. Last year he arrived at Laban Rata around 8pm via Mesilau.|
|Muka happy, journey baru jee half done :D. Got another half on the way down.|
6KM descent from Laban Rata to Timpohon was the toughest part I tell you. Sleepy, tired, muscle fatigue, joint pain. Last 2KM, my balance was already a bit off. Shaky knees were not helping at all. After 21 hours, we reached Timpohon almost midnight (220am - 1120pm)...eheheheh...
Oh yes, I did it. I did it my waaaaayyy (slowly but surely).
We checked into Marina Court 3-room apartment in KK around 2am, had to ring sleeping fellow hikers to open the apartment door for us. Byk kali call hahahaha... Kesian,,,masing2 dah pengsan, tido nyenak tak hengat dunia. Nasib baik member akhirnya terjaga. Kalau tidak, tido kat koridor lerrr.
|Sabah State Railway - Sini je boleh buang tabiat macam ni|
Hah...what a great journey. Cool places, cool companions.
