4WD Adventure

Dec 7 –  What started out as an international 4WD Adventure in the rainforest had turned awry when a bridge was washed away by floods leaving about 100 participants stranded near Sungai Trong some 200 km from Kota Baru.

It is mind boogling why the authorities would organised the event which was officiated by Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh on the 1st December 2007 during the monsoon season. Even an idiot would know that December and January is the peak of the monsoon season and states like Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang and Johor are flood prone. Having such an event during this period and in the flood prone states are just waiting for statistics to catch up with you.

It does not only put the participants’ life at risk but now would cost the government a lot of time, cost and effort in the search and rescue operations. When would the government officials start practising common sense and being more responsible.

Does it take a tragedy to wake them up or human lives are no longer important?

    Maybe the authority wanted the 4WD Adventure to be ‘really adventure’ and the participants actually “look-forward” to the “unexpected” and were cheered by the ‘life-threatening’ broken bridge…………………

    I think they just want to make a quick buck out of this without even thinking of how this 4WD will end.. probably they can wallop the prize money as well since there was no winners in the end.. alive to take the prizes. Haha. Such idiots. The participants also idiotic what. Who ask them to take part during monsoon season?

    Faith, you are quite right. They are calling it the Terengganu Monsoon Rainforest Challenge and billing it as one of the toughest in the world. When you try to play with mother nature, she tends to have the last laugh.

    Malaysians today have a big problem as underachievers. Due to this complex, we try to outdo others and in such a case, common sense is thrown away.

    A total of 124 participants were stranded and so far 7 (2 Aussies, 2 Danes, 2 Lebanese and 1 Hungarian) has managed to trek out on foot.
