2013 when SoC planned to take a road trip to city of Pines Baguio and aim to reach the highest point in Benguet


August of 2013 was the first agreed schedule, however due to typhoon aftermath that hit Baguio and nearby place it was rescheduled for 2014

January 2014, we schedule to go to Manaoag and since Baguio is few hours from Manaoag we aim to include Baguio in our itinerary, however someone have strongly suggested not to include Baguio in the January ride since it was planned on April 2014.

Here come March and April was fast approaching, this year long preparations is about to take place... its April, and only few members confirmed in this most awaited year long preps, but me and our VP @kr.r_sniper were firmed to pursue this ride even though we only have few numbers of participant.

April 25, 26 and 27 were the dates at 6am call time at Jollibee Lagro, Kent, Anthon, Yao, Bert and Lui were the first in the meeting place, then rich, then sec aries then Louie and Larry, however our guest rider allan and soc arrived late and we waited for them, till 8am they arrived and decided to take off.

Since calumpit bridge was under repair, we took baliwag-candaba road and left at San Luis Pampanga. 10am, we arrived and had our first stopover gas up at Shell San Fernando. After few minutes of rest and gas up we continue our ride and stopover for our 2nd gas up at Petron Carmen Pangasinan, then proceed again till we reached Urdaneta Pangasinan at around 12nn and meet our NC2 chapter member at Yamaha 3S Urdaneta.

Day 2
April 26, 2014
Woke up around 6am, while the ladies were preparing breakfast, we washed our snipey, and put our wet clothes under the sun to dry...
Marwin, a mechanic friend of sir @raksta arrived to check VP kent rear master, and Karding Sungkit and other member of NC2 arrived to join us in our ride to highest point. After rear brake master was check and repair we gear up and proceed to Petron Kisad Gas Station to gas up then continue to travel to highest point.

On our 90 % travel to highest point we were welcome by foggy mountains, as in zero visibility and followed by heavy rains. We stop for a while, and since the heavy rains continue, our officers have decided not to continue the ride for the safety of the riders. They travel back down to the city, its a gud thing because when they have to stop to wait for other they found out that one of the member from NC2 have fever. Meanwhile im one of the riders who waited for the others and to make sure that no one is left behind coz at SOC its one i can say im proud of, “NO ONE WILL BE LEFT BEHIND”

While waiting for others namely lui and wifey, louie, allan and soc, the sky show some sign, a bright sky showed and we agreed to continue our ride to highest point. We arrived at the highest point, however along our way up heavy rains fall again so we stop in a store along the way to check and buy plastic to serve as improvised raincoat, luckily after waiting a lady sell us big plastic enough to serve its purpose to protect us from rain, since my phone were at VP kent SHAD box, i have ask louie to txt or inform our him that we continue our ride however we have no network signal, at around 3pm we arrived to our destination, then our VP Kent was able to reach our mobile phone and inform him that we have just arrived our target the highest point. After picture taking, and coffee to ease the cold we proceed to Petron Gas Station to gas up and travel down to Baguio.

We pass through strawberry farm for a while and in the market to buy pancit, since its lui wife birthday, we arrive 7pm in the place were we stay, we took a bath then ride a cab to the city to make pasyal and eat our dinner, in the city we bought pasalubong and have our dinner at the “GOOD TASTE RESTAURANT”, on our way to Good taste restaurant we meet a very kind lady were we ask direction going to good taste restaurant, i said very kind because she accompany us till we reach the restaurant although its out of her way, then after dinner we went to night market along Harrison Road were you can buy a lot of stuff from UK (ukay ukay/wag wag) then we went home and arrange our things coz next day will be our travel back to manila

congrats bro!
di nakapunta yung iba sa highest point?
yes paps @botsok , coz our officer concern is the safety of everyone, the time they decided na bumaba na talagang madilim na aakalain mo na hindi na magliliwanag ang kalangitan...

ako kasi nahuli to make sure na wala maiwan, kahit papano kasi alam ko yung daan pabalik, so nung hinintay ko mga kasama ko bumuka ang langit at nagliwanag, so we agreeed na ituloy na since andun na at ok na panahon.... kaya ayon nakarating at nakabalik kaming apat na riders sa highest point
