    Nice post, I admire your love of sea travel. For me that’s gonna be too long in a boat. Airplanes yes…. boats no….

    Last trip Bruce and I did was from Pilar to Masbate on pumpboat then Cebu by overnight ferry. We got on the pumpboat, loaded the bikes and about 20 passengers got on. “Good” we thought, “not too many”.

    Then a large truck pulled up and they proceeded to load bagged rice into the unused passenger seating area until there was almost no freeboard left…. Off we went, choppy sea, they lowered the spray curtains, engine fumes built up inside, hull creaking loudly, seasick….

    Be back in May. Manila could be on our agenda, but not via Palawan!

    Bruce here in a few days, gonna take him out in the 4wd.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Bought a Yamaha YBR G 125CC 9 months ago in Dumaguete, have 8000 kms and no flat on the tubeless tires. The front end started to vibrate a few weeks ago and was told the rear tire needed to be replaced due to wear. Ordered new tires. They arrived yesterday. The tread was different and was told it is a new design mountain bike tubeless tire.

    Wanted to travel Monday and bought the tires. The tires flinch at every pebble. Wondering when the flat will come. Cant understand why the motorcycle parts guys cannot order the correct tires.

    I rather be on the road..most guys have an explorer gene and I’m one of them. Enjoy your website, it gives me wonderful ideas.

    Sometimes it is better not to have a back ride, but they have fits if they cannot go. One never knows what God will provide on the next adventure.
