I was very interested in rowan's itinerary plan. he was a young and brave bloke from australia during April 2009 back then n decided to join the ride with him. he was supposed to do solo riding. we got in hands: 1 GPS with up to date map installed a few guide books a few maps hammok some liters of water--remember to bring lot of water with u. bikes with both kick start and electrict starter from mr bike rental for 15 bucks a day. our routes: pp> national road #4 > kirirom national resort ( cardamom protected area) > kamlot we started at around 8 am with luggages on bike after coffee and breakfast and head straight away on the routes as planned. while we were inside the cardamom protected area, we rode throught all terrain from muddy, sandy and rocky. at the start, everything were all good. however, we got lost after when we were only 30km away from kamlot. there was a route in the GPS. However, we could not find it since no more tree to cut down and the road left un-used. The grass has growned up and we lost the track. We tried doing the Z and still we could not make it. while getting lost, met few local people inside the jungle and asked us for MUCH money to guide us to the destination. around 4 PM, we were deciding if we kept finding way or heading back as the night falling down. if we kept moving on, we would make it or would not make it and had to stay in the jungle for the night, ran out of gas, or met wild animal. so we decided to come back way we did coz we were sure we could come back through the way we did. arrived nh4 at around 7pm and head to koh kong. while we were at koh kong, we wanted to ride into the cardamom mountain again by asking some local people for tips. we were recommended to hire a guy or a moto dob driver to guide us through. And we were told it was a real challenge. finally, i decided to come back pp while rowan head to sihanouk ville. rowan kept doing his trip and came back pp after getting lost at another part. remember: -bring alot of water -kick start is a must-- i used it alot while we were inside the jungle without knowing why the battery did not work properly. -plan it well. -bikes must come with big gas tank--at least can hold up to 14 litres and keep refilling when u see big gas station on the main road. -should carry some gas--if u r not afraid of crash and exploding. i saw local people carrying gas in bottle. but rowan said it was dangerous. but i would do the same as the local. there is no gas station in the jungle right? -food in case u get lost n have to stay in the jungle.
