Thank you and Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!



2017 was a good year for me but not for my blog. I only published 3 out of 13 climbs I've done this year plus our El Nido trip. The reason behind is because I got too busy with my new found family, MMS or Metropolitan Mountaineering Society.

Hiking Adventures #39: Luzon 3 2 1 - Mt. Timbak, Mt. Tabayoc and Mt. Pulag

Before 2016 ends, one of my dream climbs was about to set by my hiking brother, Ed Velasquez which is the Mt. Halcon climb. As Halcon dubbed as country's toughest mountain to climb, we need to do some couple of training climbs first. We chose Luzon 3-2-1 which is composed of 3 highest peaks in Luzon, the Mt. Timbak, Mt. Tabayoc and Mt. Pulag. It's a good climb for me to push my luck again to finally seeing the Sea of Clouds in Pulag, my Mother Mountain.

Hiking Adventures #38: Mt. Daguldol - First Minor Training Climb for MMS BMC

Part of the curriculum of Metropolitan Mountaineering Society's BMC are climbing 4 mountains, 2 minor climbs and 2 major climbs. After the BMC Proper which happened last January 21, 2017, next is the 1st Minor Training Climb. This was not just an ordinary climb, we had a cookfest on the campsite.

Hiking Adventures #37: Mt. Maculot Rockies 2017

A month after climbing Mt. Maculot with officemates, I went back to the mountain again to accompany my former officemates this time (and occasional beer buddies).

Hiking Adventures #36: Mt. Balagbag Year-End Climb

Before the year ends, some of my friends from borderlessph wanted to climb Mt. Balagbag. I hesitated to join because it is scheduled on December 30 and 31, and I should be in my hometown in Batangas before the New Year celebration. However, I think it will be a good time to reflect about my Year 2016 and what to look forward this coming 2017 with my favorite people. So I decided to join them and planned to head straight to Batangas after the climb.
