It’s a Crampy Experience!

Category: Miscellaneous — kamaruddin @ 10:46 am

It’s Sunday (28/04) we started hashing at 16.00. We’re trying to take Long (L) route this time as nobody as far as I could see were taking the short route. OK, maybe it’s time to try! Strolling, shots some pictures, accompanied by 2 eldery couple. We left them as they’re relaxing themselves in the nearby stream. Following the trail, we’re led to a confusing intersection. Lots of hashers from different hash club were also dealing the same problem. This is the first time for me to get a “cross” (sharing a small portion of path with other hash club). Few experienced hashers were exploring few meters away trying to get some trail. My wife and I decided to return to the last trail and track our way to exit. Luckily we found middle-age couple from the same club and on we go, following them. “To boldy go where no one has gone before ™”. Exploring woods, crossing several muddy-rocky streams and slippery slopes.

Long story short, we’re stuck! No one to be seen except the 4 of us. It was 17.10 and we’re still unable to find any trail. OMG, we’re screwed this time! It’s time to panic (or at least I thought so). I dashed uncontrollably, consuming too much energy and fell several times. With time against us, all I can think of was to get the hell out as fast as possible. We’re walking 30 minutes trial-and-error for the right path, hoping for another trail to follow. Soon after that as we’re climbing back to an open and higher area, hoping to find someone, my calf ached and stiffened! Cramp! (Perfect time, isn’t it). I fell down in pain with my wife help bending my foot to ease and relax the muscle. It took us 5 minutes for this.
