Ten days to go before making my seasonal jump. This year has been less than successful, however did rebuild the rear axle/tailhousing, LP gauge remounted, Snow kit install, new tires, 05 fuel pump installed. Plus got a pair of DR's mounted on SS/T rims. Pretty much collected all the service manual special tools needed to do gear/bearing changes. Mostly failed at getting more show/track time, additional PCM tuning. Plus, still got the stage III VB to install. Will start back up in March.

If you don't mind me asking who do you travel with and where through?

Bryan, I'm retired military/DoD contractor still doing a little consulting with the occassional trip to support ships here and there. I travel alone and make my own arrangements. I have a permanant PI resident visa to come and go as I need.

Sorry, need to clarify, I was referring to airlines and layovers in terms of travel if that's not prodding to much. Lot of guys at work here in Baghdad do the Phillipines and Southeast Asia on R&R.

Bryan,
Sorry, I misunderstood your question. Flying from the east coast I usually bounce through Japan or Korea. Korea being my favorite route. Trip takes about 25 hours and flys into Manila. I use a airport taxi to get to one of the many bus terminals and head out to my province. Swagman has good support for airport pickup, taking you to their hotel. Then from there you can arrange transportation to the known R&R cities. I also have a contact that can do airport pickup and take you directly to Angeles, Barrio, Baguio or where ever you want. Flights generally arrive late at night. If you are going to stay in Manila he can also get you a dedicated taxi to carry you around. You can easily do this on your own, but you really don’t know the driver’s background. This mostly comes down to whether you have experience getting around in the PI on your own or not. I also have a friend who can provide motorcycle tours to wherever you want to go for as long as you like. This is for highly skilled riders only and is a truly terrific way to experience the Philippines. As your friends will tell you, PI is great fun but comes with a warning label. “Use at your own risk”. If you need detail information shoot me a PM. Good luck..
9 days to go…
After thought there is also a route through Beijing arriving in Clark (Angeles City), But I don’t know if it is still available.

4 days to go!

Bryan, if you want to get information about what is happening in Angeles take a look at "Harry the Horse" website. He's a old expat living in AC since the 70's.
