    Default Mariveles to Bagac bay

    I made a road trip with fellow member Deepasia on 3 july . We left from angeles at about 8 am and rode all day.The main purpose of the trip was to check out the long unpaved road marked on the map. We carried spare parts and tools which we actually had to use.This unpaved road is not for beginners to try. I don't think this road can be traveled if it rains. We came across landslides , wet slippery clay and a hugh water crossing.My friend was able to take some great pictures to post and ill do my best to describe them .This was a great experiance and the cold beer at the end of the day was needed badly.


    The road started off easy

    Things started getting rocky

    another shot the large water crossing, fast moving water approx 2 feet deep and more in some spots. There is many large rocks to skip around crossing. I would not wanna do it again

    Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.

    Did you found it difficult crossing with your off-road bike?

    How do think it was in a Toyota Altis, with wife and kids in the back?
