RUN NO. 2343 DIPLO 16JUL13

RUN NO. 2343
DATE: 16 JUL 2013

Karlene on front horn lead the way into the jungle and straight down a slippery hill. We weaved our way in and out of trees, up and down hills, jumped over streams and balanced on logs. Just what we expect of a jungle run in Diplo!! (Although one hen was heard to be asking “Do you think it will be hilly?”) At first check, we scattered in different directions until Trail blazer and Duchess of Cambridge spotted the trail and called “on paper”. More ups and down and lots more water and mud to splash through. My dogs Jess and Zulu are particularly fond of water so jumped in and swam around at every opportunity. They even lead me off trail once just because they spotted a stream they thought we should be crossing.

Second and third check was found by Jenny on the block. Duchess of Cambridge was back horn and rounded up the plodding walkie talkies to ensure we all made it out safely. After one and a half hours of wandering round the Diplo jungle, we were glad to see the lights of the tent with the cold 100+ and ads waiting,

Rave brought her sister Panina as a first time guest and was given the usually welcome from Dizzy. The July birthdays were celebrated and Trail blazer told a joke. Yummy chilli was served – thanks hares. I was in a rush to leave (sorry husband was moaning of a bad back – but ok now) so butted in to tell you about the run Masayo, Ika and I are laying in Salambigar Falls. This could be one of the last times we can do it here as they have bulldozed a rather large road straight across the trail we reccied. We are doing two runs - a short one about 3 km and a longer one at 5 km. Look out for the sign to show you where the trail spilt off.
