Mount Balagbag

A friend told me about his plan to do traverse hike and another friend plans to do trail biking. They both like hiking and absolutely love riding their bikes. I remember they told me that they wanted to go camping.

So I said, “mark your diaries, August 18th and 19th as we’ll be having BIKEpacking”

We couldn’t have been luckier with the weather. For several days before the trip the rain flooded most of the capital, and it was touch and go whether we’d actually make it. On Friday morning everything was dry again and we’ve decided to go for it.
