The night before we were briefed on the trail by Mrs. Carell Chen of WWF-Malaysia.

The cloudless sky gave excellent readings on the Magellan Meridian and Garmin GPSMap 76cx GPS we were carrying.

The main aim of the journey was to obtain GPS readings to produce
1. Map of Pine Tree Hill
2. A downloadable track for Garmin GPSs
3. Track profile of Pine Tree Hill

Wan Wei Liam was on the Megallan Meridien whilst Nigel Tee manned the Garmin. The track in .gdb format is at the bottom of this report.

The journey was completed around 4.00 p.m. on Friday 6th April 2007
