Mt. Harris Grade 2,
8th January 2012
Our first official event for 2012 saw our members assembling at the NP Gas
Station just before the Piarco International Airport on the Golden Grove
Road. Each rig was scrutineered while our members interacted and stocked up
on supplies for the trail.
A total of seven (7) vehicles attended the event and was split into two (2)
convoys, the first with four (4) and the latter of three (3) who were
addressing to a needed minor repair on one of the rigs.
The lead pack proceeded along the scenic Cumoto Main Road and the
chase pack utilized the long stretches trough Sande Grande to catch up. Both
were united once on the trail. The trail which had thus far in our previous
ventures only deserved a grading of 2/3 had now been converted into a grade
4 run with the heavy rainfalls and undulating forest terrain presenting a
stiff challenge. One by one our members had to abandon their rig and
walk/ride along as we ventured further into the wilderness.
At about 2:30pm, Shivanand with his (Suzuki Muruti) and the other members at
the front decided to turn around to begin the exit of the trail. This was
even more difficult as the trail was now even wetter and required winching
to make it out.
We returned to the start of the trail at about 4pm and posed for some
pictures before the trail was officially brought to a close.
