Jeff only wanted to do one thing on this trip and that was to go to the tip of Borneo. We rented a car/mini van and left at 5:00 a.m. with Sister Lillian as our guide and Leslie along for the ride. It is about a four hour drive on not the best of roads. Jeff would be driving along on paved roads and there would some times be a sign that would say; "AWAS" which means "caution" and the next thing you know you are on a washed out piece of road. Landon and I were in the very back of the car and can verify the bad roads by the sore tailbones we sustained :) It was totally worth sore tailbones!

|On the way back we stopped at a Traditional Rungus Longhouse in Kudat|
|Today, only the Runggus and Murut peoples still maintain the longhouse system. Each family has its own "apartment" but share a common living area. A longhouse may be made up of 20 to 40 families. Each of the doors is an apartment.|
