I went for a longish hike the other day over Xuan Van Hill to re-record the trails that I featured in the article. This took about four hours, covering just over ten kilometres of trails and climbing the damned hill three times. I’m getting pretty tired of the hill – it was my training area for Mt Kinabalu and I climbed it well over a hundred times in the last three months of 2015.
After that, I rewrote and reorganised the article, adding the new map, more pictures, a Google Maps location link and a link to a GPS file.
It’s been a busy couple of days, being the Tết (Lunar New Year) holiday in Vietnam. We took a family trip to the cemetary in Phu Tai (fifteen kilometres away) to visit the graves of my wife’s parents, visited most of the other relatives in town (there’s a lot of ’em!), a beach trip and a trip up into the hills to check out some land for sale. I also visited The Haven, maybe the best spot along the coast for a beer/meal/swim.
