Jungle Trekking II- Mindanao, Philippines

Postby bear the dog » Fri May 04, 2012 5:38 am

…part II

In the background, Zamboanga can be seen. This is the most concentrated area of the Abu Sayyaf.

Image


Image

This guy is named Reuben too. He was one of our guides who has a hut in the jungle, but sleeps at my friend Joey’s house. Even I don’t get it.

Image

Image

Image

Image


The top of a peak called…I don’t remember.

Image

Image

Looks better as a mini
Image

Image

As we hiked through the jungle our guides would go ahead and let the people in the village (The Village People) know what we were doing there. Many of them said we were the first Americas ever to hike there.

By the looks the kids gave us, I think they were right. We gave them gummy bears and cookies.

Image

Image

This kid looks like he just saw a ghost, or an American.
Image

Image

Clean, fresh water coming from underground.

Image

Wow, I got a lot of mosquito bites on my feet.
Image

Peter our guide is an amazing dude.
Image

At the top of the little waterfalls was a bigger waterfall, where all the kids were getting their hair cut and taking a bath with their clothes on.
Image

Image

Image

Image

We found a tree that had some very nice tinder. Doldol tree. A firesteel and the thumb serrations on this knife worked like a charm.
Image

Image

Image

Reza and Peter

Image

Sugarcane
Image

Image

Reza caught this gecko one of the nights.
Image

Jungle style feast caught by hand, and with this little harpoon gun.

Image

Image

Image

Cutting up a pig that was slaughtered a few nights prior.

Image

Check out their kitchen knife.
Image

Image

A good cook fire
Image

Image

Image

Then Reza jumped off this bridge, the end!
Image

Last supper with Joey

Hope you enjoyed our journey!

To hell with Abu Sayyaf.
I want to see some MILF pix.

I wish I knew how to multi-post quotes, but I don’t. If anyone has any ideas, let me know.

Thanks man, I appreciate it.

This sucks, I can’t multi-quote.

Thank you sir!
It was not an organized tour. I know a lot of people there and I’ve been going there since 2009 to hike, do some photography, and write a few stories. I asked Reza if he wanted to come along for an adventure to remember. Reza is the guy who did the two kick ass DPx video reviews on the HEST 2.0 folder and HEST family.

I gotta ask how the dude caught the gecko. That is a lizard I have tried to catch (without harming) many times and never succeeded.
