"What if we run the longest trail on Kiara? I haven't tried that", Bud asked
Immediately, Kampung came to my mind.
Problem is, the last time i went into Kampung was almost forever ago.

This Was What Happened
As it was a rather last minute thing and I was unsure of the trail, i extended the invitation to another friend, Mon, and he was game. Adding another person into the run would be fun. At 7am, we were all at our designated pick up point. A quick chat and introduction between all of us - myself, Bud, Mon and Mon's friend, Azhar and we were off. The plan was to run up Lung Buster towards Twin Peak and turn off at the last junction heading to Segambut Dalam. There was no issues the first 2km. In fact, it was smooth sailing (as it was a familiar route for all of us), until i hesitated on the (correct) junction and got the team lost as we emerge at the Peak 1. Backtracked and turned right (from Peak 1) to the junction. We ran down and came to a cross junction that was marked in the map. I made the biggest mistake in map-reading by assuming I know where I should go and turned right, only to find ourselves running to the bottom of "TNT/Dirty Deeds". That meant we ran Pure Quill. Haha. Never mind as that 700m was treated as additional mileage as we backtracked and was finally on the right track. As we went down "Janie's Addiction", we came to the part where the fences were left open. The view from that side was much better than the usual lookout point.
