Ford Ranger Club Owners Go On An Adventure Through Sarawak

Car club activities are always interesting to read up on, but it's the pickup truck clubs that are the most exciting - especially in East Malaysia. Many groups have taken it upon themselves to combine their get-togethers with a bit of community service, as is the case with the 4X4 Sarawak Jamboree - the largest annual Ford Ranger annual gathering in Sarawak.

This year's adventure saw the owners travel from Sibu to Kapit over the course of four days, in a convoy of 175 vehicles. Newly tarred roads and newly opened pathways allowed for the journey, which would have involved a river crossing just two years ago. Along the way, the owners made visits to Iban tribes in Kanowit, Song, and Kapit.

Immersing one's self in native culture is always a great experience, and the owners in turned helped out with cleaning up Kanowit town. The timber tracks traversed had been abandoned for two years, which called for a bit of ingenuity and an understanding of off-roading. Small tributary crossings on flimsy timbre bridges were also required, adding to the thrill of adventure.

Beyond the trekking, owners had a chance to hunt and fish, as well as partake in barbeques and spend hours by the campfire. This helped to foster a stronger relationship between the owners, and truly encapsulated the 'Ranger Lifestyle' - that is, to have a safe comfortable ride for the everyday, but also having something tough and capable when necessary.
