Pink Floyd Concert in Gunung Pancar

The Mountains are my Bones,
the Rivers my Veins.
The Forests are my Thoughts,
and the Stars are my Dreams.
The Ocean is my Heart,
its pounding is my Pulse.
The Songs of the Earth
write the Music of my Soul.

Just a few days before the Eid festival last week in early July 2016, we brought Pink Floyd campervan to Gunung Pancar for family camping. Here are the photo essay:

Camping with Rookies at Sukamantri

Sukamantri Boris 69This was the 3rd time we did camping at Sukamantri camping ground this year. This time we brought a college friend with his family, who have never been in camping before. An important message I got previously from him; the camping must be successful to secure the family’s interest in camping in the future. Otherwise, they won’t go camping anymore & his effort will fail. He realizes an escalating problem to his family that his two kids are addicted in playing gadgets & spending weekend time in shopping malls. Doing outdoor activities in the nature seems don’t attract them. Well I said, this is a common family problem today where gadgets are affordable, shopping malls are convenient & lack of information regarding good camping locations. After all, so many people still think that camping is a complicated & miserable activity. Hahaha… not anymore my friend. Now, we can do camping much easier, less complicated & much more convenient & relaxing. The key word is: preparation.

Sukamantri Boris 70Ini kali ketiga kami camping di Sukamantri di tahun ini. Kali ini, kami membawa tiga keluarga yang belum pernah camping sebelumnya, termasuk keluarga kawan kuliah dulu. Kawan ini berpesan supaya acara campingnya sukses agar keluarganya tidak kapok & mau camping lagi di lain waktu. Kalau gagal, maka tidak akan ada lagi acara camping keluarga. Beliau menyadari ada problem yang akan terus bertambah besar di dalam keluarganya yaitu kedua anaknya sudah adiktif ke gajet & maunya hanya bermain ke mal di akhir pekan. Beraktivitas di luar & berinteraksi dengan alam sepertinya tidak menarik minat mereka. Komentar saya, ini sudah menjadi masalah umum di banyak keluarga karena gajet sudah gampang didapat, mal-mal telah menjadi tempat yang nyaman untuk dikunjungi & kurang informasi tentang tempat camping yang bagus. Juga, masih banyak orang yang menilai bahwa camping adalah aktivitas yang menyusahkan & malahan membawa derita. Hahaha… tidak lagi Bro. Sekarang, kita dapat melakukan aktivitas camping dengan jauh lebih mudah, tidak menyusahkan, lebih nyaman & membuat kita rileks. Kata kuncinya adalah: persiapan.

Sukamantri Boris 72Below are five tips that I did to overcome the challenges & to ensure the camping trip was successful:
Berikut lima tips untuk mengatasi tantangan tersebut & untuk memastikan acara campingnya sukses:

First of all, we use a tool to help; that is a Campervan. We make camping become a convenient thing to do. A campervan provides you a more convenient & softer mattress. It insulates you better against the cold night air. It protects you more from the environment. It gives you more security while you sleep. Bottom line, we can sleep much better inside a campervan than a tent.

Sukamantri Boris 56 collagePertama-tama; gunakanlah alat bantu, yaitu: Campervan. Kita membuat camping menjadi aktivitas yang nyaman. Campervan menyediakan alas tidur yang lebih empuk & nyaman. Campervan bisa menjaga suhu ruangan lebih hangat di waktu malam. Di dalam campervan, kita akan lebih terlindungi dari lingkungan luar & juga lebih aman. Singkatnya, tidur di campervan akan lebih nyaman daripada tidur di dalam tenda.

Sukamantri Boris 34The campervan also provides you with basic facilities we need during camping. Nowadays cooking is much simpler than the old days. Thanks to the portable gas stoves using a butane gas canister. It’s easy to operate & the gas canister is relatively cheap & easy to get. The fire is clean & hot. It won’t leave dark carbon ash mark on the bottom of your cooking ware which hard to wash. The portable stove means you can cook basically anywhere you like to. During a regular day, most of people like to cook outside, but when it rains, then you can cook inside the campervan.

Sukamantri Boris 5Campervan menyediakan fasilitas-fasilitas basik yang diperlukan saat bercamping. Dewasa ini kegiatan memasak menjadi jauh lebih mudah dibanding dulu. Ini berkat kompor gas portabel menggunakan tabung gas butana. Pengoperasiannya mudah, tabung gasnya mudah diperoleh & relatif murah harganya. Apinya bersih, panas & tidak akan meninggalkan jelaga hitam di alas alat masak. Karena portabel, kompornya dapat digunakan untuk memasak di mana saja. Umumnya orang akan memasak di luar, tetapi ketika hujan, memasak dapat dilakukan di dalam campervan.  

Sukamantri Boris 75The campervan has a water tap with running clean water. You can wash your hands with soap before you eat. You can brush your teeth conveniently at night before you sleep. You can wash your eating utensils & cooking ware without having to walk a few hundred meters to the nearest water source to do it.

Sukamantri Boris 73Di dalam campervan juga terdapat washtafel dengan kran air. Washtafel in dapat digunakan untuk mencuci tangan, pakai sabun, sebelum makan atau untuk menyikat gigi di waktu malam sebelum tidur dengan lebih nyaman. Washtafel juga dapat digunakan untuk mencuci piring, tanpa harus jalan kaki jauh ke tempat air.

Sukamantri Boris 74There is a refrigerator inside, in case you want to keep your food cold. Anyhow, we don’t use it often on site since usually the air is cold enough & we don’t need to keep the raw food overnight.

Sukamantri Boris 71Sebuah kulkas terdapat di dalam campervan. Kulkas ini dapat digunakan untuk menyimpan makanan. Umumnya kulkas ini tidak begitu diperlukan karena udara di tempat camping biasanya sudah dingin & tidak diperlukan untuk menyimpan makanan semalam.

Patar Sukamantri 5During camping, you really want to minimize to use the gadget, but cell phones have to be ready at anytime. The campervan provides a 220V AC power when the cell phone needs recharging. Thanks to its inverter.

Sukamantri Boris 58 collageSelama camping, usahakan untuk mengurangi menggunakan gajet walau ponsel tetap harus aktif. Campervan menyediakan suplai listrik AC 220V melalui alat inverter yang dapat digunakan untuk mengisi ulang batere ponsel.

Sukamantri Boris 33There is plenty of room inside & outside a campervan which means you have more liberty to bring more cargo; chairs, tables, bags, food, water, etc. These cargo can help your camping become more convenient.

Sukamantri Boris 63Ruangan di dalam campervan cukup luas yang membuat kita dapat lebih leluasa membawa berbagai jenis barang; kursi, meja, makanan, minuman, dsb. Barang-barang inilah yang juga dapat membantu camping kita menjadi lebih nyaman.

Sukamantri Boris 66So here we are; camping with three families who were about to experient camping for the very first time. One family has 5 members, including three kids; one is an early teenager & two below ten. The 2nd family has two teenager kids. The 3rd; only the mother & her early teenager son. Another friend, this one is experienced in camping, brought his below ten son & his 2 years old daughter. On top of that, they were two drivers & a campervan driver. I brought two campervans. According to my calculation, they were 17 people total.

Sukamantri Boris 14Jadi sampailah kami di lokasi camping bersama-sama tiga keluarga yang belum pernah camping. Salah satu keluarga beranggota lima orang, termasuk satu ABG & dua anak-anak di bawah 10 tahun. Keluarga kedua terdiri dari tiga orang termasuk dua ABG. Keluarga ketiga; hanya ibunya & ABG cowok. Kawan kuliah lainnya, yang ini sudah cukup pengalaman camping, membawa dua anak termasuk yang masih usia 2 tahun. Disamping itu, ada dua driver & satu driver campervan. Saya membawa dua campervan. Menurut perhitungan, semuanya total ada 17 orang di rombongan.

Sukamantri Boris 4Second; to accommodate these people, I had to rent three tents plus two of my own tents. Two more tents were brought individually. This was part of the preparation. I had to find out how many people would go in more details; adults, boys, girls & drivers.

Sukamantri Boris 57 collageKedua; untuk mengakomodasi semuanya, saya harus menyewa tiga tenda tambahan di samping dua tenda yang saya bawa sendiri. Dua tenda lainnya di bawa masing-masing keluarga. Ini adalah bagian dari persiapan. Saya harus mengetahui dengan pasti berapa orang yang ikut dengan lebih detil: dewasa, anak-anak, cowok atau cewek & driver.

Patar Sukamantri 11Third; get a best spot on the camping ground. At Sukamantri, the area which we can bring in our campervans is very limited, unless you drive a 4×4 car. We wanted the campervans to get inside the camping ground. At that time, I also knew that during a long weekend, the camping ground would be crowded normally (I was right). Therefore I left Jakarta very early, earlier than common people. Also to avoid traffic jam in Bogor. The result was paid-off. We got the best camping spot; near the parking lot & accessible for the campervans. Only 10 minutes later after we got there, a group of camper arrived. Their camping location was a bit further, far from the parking lot & accessible only to high ground-clearance vehicles. If we were late only for 10 minutes, it would have been an opposite story.

Sukamantri Boris 67Ketiga; dapatkan posisi terbaik di camping ground. Di Sukamantri, tempat di mana mobil dapat masuk ke area camping sangatlah terbatas, kecuali kendaraannya 4×4. Campervan kami harus bisa masuk ke area camping. Pada waktu itu, saya pun menyadari bahwa di akhir pekan yang panjang, tempat camping akan sangat padat (ternyata saya betul). Maka sayapun meninggalkan Jakarta lebih pagi. Ini pun juga untuk menghindari kemacetan lalu lintas di Bogor. Hal ini membuahkan hasil. Kami mendapatkan posisi yang sangat bagus, mungkin yang terbaik; dekat dengan tempat parkir mobil & kedua campervan dapat masuk. Hanya 10menit berselang, ada grup orang lain yang tiba. Mereka hanya dapat mengambil tempat yang lebih jauh & hanya dapat dimasukin kendaraan yang tinggi. Kalau saja kami terlambat tiba di lokasi hanya 10 menit, ceritanya akan berbeda.

Patar Sukamantri 1

Fourth; bring plenty of food. Most of children can be calmed down with food. At least 50% of the time we spend on camping is cooking & eating. No matter how taste the food is, eating at camping ground always tastes better. This is actually pretty danger for our diets. Hahaha…Sukamantri Boris 76

Keempat; bawalah banyak makanan. Umumnya anak-anak akan lebih tenang kalau perut tak lapar. 50% dari waktu kita di camping adalah memasak & makan. Di lokasi camping, biasanya semua makanan akan berasa enak. Sebetulnya ini cukup berbahaya kalau kita sedang diet makan. Hahaha…

Sukamantri Boris 2

Fifth; arrange some activities to avoid boredom. For example, we did hiking to a nearby water fall, led by a local guide. At night, we set up a bonfire; something always be demanded by kids.

Sukamantri Boris 29 Kelima; usahakan berbagai macam aktivitas untuk mencegah kebosanan. Contohnya, kami berhiking ke lokasi air terjun terdekat, dipimpin seorang guide lokal. Di waktu malam, kami menyalakan api ungun; sesuatu yang pasti dicari anak-anak & tanpanya acara camping akan menjadi hambar.

Sukamantri Boris 59 collageSukamantri Boris 44That was during a long weekend before the independence-day holiday. Sukamantri camping ground was unusually very crowded. The night was noisy, not a calm night. It had not been raining for a few months. Running spring water was little & bathrooms were almost empty of water. Nevertheless, we managed to have a pleasant camping experience, especially for these rookies. They are keen to do more camping next time, with campervans, of course.

Sukamantri Boris 61Acara camping kami diadakan di akhir pekan yang panjang sebelum hari Kemerdekaan 17 Agustus. Tidak seperti biasanya, Sukamantri menjadi tempat yang sangat ramai di waktu itu. Malam hari ramai & berisik oleh aktivitas orang-orang yang camping. Waktu itu juga sudah tidak turun hujan selama beberapa bulan. Suplai air ke tempat-tempat mandi sangat kecil & bak-bak mandi sudah hampir kosong. Walaupun begitu, secara umum kami berhasil memberikan pengalaman camping yang berkesan positif kepada para nubies. Mereka tertarik untuk acara camping di lain waktu, tentu saja dengan campervan.

Campervan camping in Gunung Pancar (again)

Here we are, camping in Gunung Pancar again. Gunung Pancar is a favorite place because it’s near from Jakarta, good access road, not too high elevation (only around 400m asl) & not far from a supermarket or convenience stores for the supplies.
Untuk kesekian kalinya, kami kembali camping di Gunung Pancar. Tempat ini sudah menjadi favorit karena letaknya yang dekat dari Jakarta, aksesnya mudah, elevasinya tidak terlalu tinggi (hanya 400m dpl) & tidak jauh dari supermarket atau toko retail.

Pancar M89 10In honoring to two of our college friends; one is still under a medical treatment & another one is having a vacation in Indonesia (he lives in Zurich, Switzerland) I gave them the idea to do an easy camping in Gunung Pancar, bringing a campervan; something they wanted to know. Another friend joining us with his 9yo son & 5yo female Doberman.
Untuk menghormati dua orang kawan kuliah dulu; satu sedang menjalani pengobatan & satu lagi sedang berlibur ke tanah air (beliau tinggal di Zurich, Swiss), saya mengajak mereka camping ke Gunung Pancar dengan menggunakan campervan, sesuatu yang sebelumnya membuat mereka penasaran. Satu kawan lagi bergabung membawa putranya berumur 9 tahun & anjing Dobermannya berumur 5 tahun.Pancar M89 9It was two days after Eid Al-Fitr; the Jagorawi toll road had a 1km long traffic jam before the Sentul City exit, the place was crowded with people, motorcycles & cars. Yes, it was still holiday season. Compared with the last time I came here, this time was completely different; too many visitors, littering garbage everywhere & bad traffic. The good news was we got the best camping spot; the same spot when we were here in January.
Waktunya hanya dua hari sesudah Lebaran; jalan tol Jagorawi macet parah 1km sebelum pintu keluar Sentul City, tempatnya penuh dengan pengunjung, sepeda motor & mobil. Betul, masih dalam masa liburan. Berbeda dengan waktu kami camping di sini di bulan Januari lalu, sekarang lokasinya terlalu ramai, sampah berserakan di mana-mana & lalu lintas yang padat. Kabar baiknya adalah kami mendapatkan spot camping yang terbaik, yang sama dengan camping terakhir lalu.

Pancar M89 3So we spot the Deep Purple campervan in the same position. This time we rigged up three tents on the flat field below. When the dusk coming by, many visitors disappeared. Only a few families setting up their tents nearby. We enjoying more as the place became quieter.
Kami memarkirkan Deep Purple di tempat yang sama. Lalu kami mendirikan tiga buah tenda di lapangan yang datar di bawahnya. Menjelang senja hari, banyak pengunjung yang kembali pulang. Hanya beberapa keluarga yang bercamping malam itu. Lokasinya pun menjadi tenang & lebih menyenangkan.

Pancar M89 4 Pancar M89 5

One thing to tell is regarding the female Doberman; Gamma. She is very well trained by her owner. She obeys her master’s commands to stay, to sit, to get into her portable kennel, to get out, etc. She didn’t really get distracted by the crowded. She was pretty much focusing to her master. And she was a very good guard dog, guarding us during the night. She didn’t bark at all during the stay but she could detect if somebody has a bad intention to us; what Cesar Millan always says ‘the negative energy’ that dogs feel & see. In this situation, without barking, she will show her stand & if the guy keep approaching, she will bite, a bad bite.
Ada satu hal yang menarik untuk diceritakan di sini yaitu anjing Doberman betina yang diajak camping bernama Gamma berumur 5 tahun. Kelihatan sekali bahwa anjing ini sangat terlatih. Gamma menurut apa saja yang diperintahkan oleh tuannya sekaligus pelatihnya untuk diam di tempat, duduk, untuk masuk ke dalam kandang portabelnya, untuk keluar kandang, dsb. Gamma tidak begitu terdistraksi oleh keramaian melainkan tetap fokus kepada pelatihnya. Anjing ini juga anjing penjaga yang baik, menjaga kami di waktu malam. Selama di tempat camping, Gamma tidak menggonggong sekalipun. Anjing ini dapat mendeteksi kalau ada orang yang berniat jahat, sesuatu yang sering disebutkan oleh Cesar Millan sebagai ‘energi negatif’ yang dirasakan & dilihat oleh anjing. Dalam situasi seperti ini, tanpa menggonggong, Gamma akan berdiri menghadang & jika orang berniat jahat tersebut tetap maju, maka Gamma akan menyerang & menggigit, yang dapat mengakibatkan cedera serius.

Next time, I will bring my Labrador & perhaps my Beagle camping with her & let them be trained by my friend.
Lain waktu, saya akan membawa serta Labrador saya & mungkin juga Beagle untuk camping bersama Gamma & akan memberi kesempatan kepada kawan saya untuk coba melatihnya.

Pancar M89 7Eating, cooking, talking, drinking, cooking, eating, talking, etc. that’s all we did spending the evening & the night. We also set up a bonfire & burned a few marshmallows. It was a dry season so we had no worries of getting rain.
Makan, memasak, ngobrol, minum-minum, memasak, makan, ngobrol, dsb. Hanya itulah yang kami lakukan bersama mengisi waktu sore & malam. Kami juga menyalakan api ungun & memanggang marshmallow. Di tengah musim kering, kami tidak kuatir akan turun hujan.

Pancar M89 8It was a pleasant quick & easy camping with my old friends. Usually I do camping with my family. We enjoy our friendship. By the next morning, we left the place back to Jakarta. Gunung Pancar, for sure, sooner or later, we’ll be back with the campervans.
Acara campingnya cukup singkat tetapi sangat berkesan diluangkan bersama-sama kawan lama. Biasanya saya camping bersama keluarga. Kami menikmati persahabatan ini. Di pagi harinya, kami kembali pulang menuju Jakarta. Cepat atau lambat, kami pasti akan kembali ke Gunung Pancar.
