This article is literally a year-ender post, written barely 2 hours before Year 2016 bade goodbye. So here goes our review of the year that was 2016.
Our new year was surprised by a sad news from friends, co-mountaineers/rescuers alike, regarding the damage typhoon Nona has caused in the Infanta area. Without hesitation, we responded even it meant walking nearly 15 kilometers under the rain and cold wind. We passed several landslides, damaged houses and newly formed waterfalls along the road. The team helped set-up rope access to bring the relief goods to the affected areas in other side of the damaged bridge.
We celebrated the month of love with an amazing race trip to the Eastern Visayas with a Biliran-Southern Leyte-Leyte-Eastern Samar route. Yes, it was an arduous journey but the doting ambience of Caluwayan resort on the heart’s day was a startling compliment.
