Please Help Make this Pulag Climb Happen

I’ve said before that Mt. Pulag is one of my dream climbs. I thought I’d finally have the chance to make it come true when I got invited to a Pulag climb on the last weekend of this month. Then earlier today came the very bad, horrible news. It might get cancelled because there are only seven of us who are joining. The jeepney rental going to the jump-off is too costly to be shouldered by only seven people so the organizers are thinking of just calling it off. Now this is the part where I start groveling and begging. (It works in getting me on the plane whenever I’m late for my flight so here’s hoping it’ll work here as well.)

Please please please join us on this Pulag climb on November 23-25, 2012 via Akiki-Ambangeg trail. You’d get to climb a beautiful mountain (or so I’ve heard) and you’d be doing a noble deed by making at least one wimpy mountaineer very happy. I’m sure that counts for something in heaven or in your next reincarnation or in the fulfillment of humanist ideals.

How can you say no to this? (I can’t do a poor-puppy-dog-eyes look so here’s a photo of an actual puppy to make your heart melt.)

Seriously though, it would really really (really!) mean a lot if this climb would push through so if you’re interested in joining, please email me at misadventuresoftintin[at]gmail.com. Thank you so much!

          Fine, binabanlian ng mainit na tubig. Pucha, kelangan may nitpicking talagang nagaganap? :-/ Nasa Mati ang puppy na yan, ang pangalan nya ay Douglas. Sunduin mo dun. Hehe.

          Matutuloy sana kung sasama kayo. Wehehe. Iba lakad nyo eh, Christmas season pa. Eh anlayo pa ng uuwian ko sa pasko. Akyat na lang akong Matutum tsaka mga bundok sa Sarangani. Magsusuot din akong bonnet at gloves para kunwari nasa Pulag din. Nyahaha.

              Sa Barangay Tamisan. Pero baka kinuha na sya ng bagong may-ari by this time. Ipapaampon na kasi sya nung andon ako. Marami nang aso yung family na tinirhan ko. :)

            Thanks Karen! Sana nga. Pag hindi, kakain na lang ulit ako ng maraming donut to drown my sorrows. Hahaha. Sige ba, but don’t get your hopes up. My cooking is mediocre on a good day and disastrous on a bad one. :P

    honestly, ayaw ko din munang gawing Makiling ang Pulag. Baka madis-enchant ako. hehe so talagang di tuloy sina Master? Ang pwede niyong gawin, one way na lang yung jeep. Mas mura. Tapos makisabay kayo sa Ambangeg pabalik, most likely meron dung mga campers. That’s what we did nina Vernz. 6 lang din kami nag-Akiki that time so the concerns were the same. :)

      Ewan, hanging pa din ata. Medyo resigned na nga ako eh, kaya magpapagod na lang at ide-dayhike ang Tapulao. Hehe. Tara! Tapos mangho-hoard ulit ng J.Co donuts for therapy. :P

    Natuloy po ba to? These are exactly the dates kung kelan umakyat kami ng Pulag, also by Akiki-Amba. Only two groups registered on the 23rd – kami and a group of three. Baka isa po kayo dun.

      Sana nga isa ako dun but unfortunately, hindi. Haha. Di kami natuloy. May apat kasi na nag-back-out. Ayon. So Pulag still remains a dream climb for me. :-/
