The Outdoor: Basic Camping

The Outdoor: Basic Camping

I thought about sharing my experiences in backpacking particularly in basic camping. I am not really a professional outdoor guy and my experiences and knowledge are far incomparable to those people who are really dedicated to their outdoor fields. I hope this post will somehow help those people who wanted to try out camping in the nature. [miniflickr userid="26390529@N03" tags="camping"…

COMBAT Mountain Bike Race

COMBAT Mountain Bike Race

One good reason for a biker to join a mountain bike race is to measure how well you can handle fitness and your mountain biking skills. A novice racer normally thinks of joining races for very simple reasons. It could be that he wants to have the event jersey, or got invited by biking buddies, or just simply try out the fun and pressure in it. A bike club here in Cagayan de Oro, had their 18th COMBAT Mountain Bike Competition.

Weekend in Misamis Oriental

Weekend in Misamis Oriental

These past few weeks, there were loads of projects worked lately, busy, bit stressful, giving me less time to rest. It was cluttered and needs to sort them out and somehow I felt a bit lonely.

Part 1, Trip to Bukidnon and Davao

Part 1, Trip to Bukidnon and Davao

Cross-country mountain biking from Davao to CDO - a ride that most people think it's crazy! Travel to Davao just to mount the rigs on the starting point instead of taking a break to some famous nature park in the city. Why am I doing this? To think of something we believe impossible is easy. When actually looking at impossible…

Preface: Mt. Hibok-Hibok Climb 2008

The feeling of being out there alone in an unknown territory gives me the chance to see and experience nature to its almost untouched state. The music of the feathered friends, accompanied by the swaying leaves, seems ike an orchestra playing in front of me. What it's gonna be like for a lowlander like me? 42
