Kabundukan Update: So Far So Good

It has been 8 months already from the time I started venturing this thrilling activity called mountaineering. And on that short span of time, I learned and experienced aplenty (it is probably safe to say that I'm not anymore the newbie that I used to be). I still believe though that there's more to know and discover in this fun filled sports.

Anyways, dahil nga I fell in love with hiking so much (or should I say I'm addicted to it na), my status now: 20 mountains, 26 climbs.
