I'll do double duty and say hello from the Philippines. There are no Dodges running around in my area. There was a 3g diesel 2500 in Subic that posted on another forum a couple of times. But I haven't heard from him since last year. I explore a lot on my old Yamaha XT600 and found a 41' Dodge left over from WWII. Talked to the owner and he said he has all the original parts new to rebuild the drivetrain. Said he got them from a Army depot in switzerland. Strange world, he also has a bunch of exotic animals on his farm, so who knows.

We are 12 hours ahead of the east coast so it is Sunday morning here. The typhoon pasted last night with tons of rain and wind. Power just came back on along with the internet. This has been the second typhoon (hurricane) in a week. What the hell, can't even get my van cleaned up. But it is all good.

This second typhoon has a large area flooded down near Bulacan, Pampanga Angeles City area. This also includes the old Subic area and most of Zambales. I'm located further north and we are mostly good here. It'll take a week to drain off.

Folks are really into signs here. It's so busy that I mostly stop trying to read them all. Some are really hilarious. I have to start taking some pictures of them. Many are on the side of the road that are just a couple pots of food that are available for next to nothing for folks travelling. Some of the signs I've seen are "Eatable Eatery", "Vulcanizing, Tire Repair and Eatery", Funeral Services and Fast Food", "Crack Repair", "Fun Home", "Double Delious", "Live Food", "Chicken Balls" usually close to the "Fish Balls" and feet. Anyway you get the picture. Truely great fun...

I've been sick as a dog for the last couple of days. Really miserable, finally able to feel half alive this morning and what do you know I apparently passed the bug onto the wife. To say she is a bit cranky doesn't quite cover it. Oh well... think I'll spend three dollars and go get a shave and haircut. That'll get me right, or maybe stop off at a joint for something refreshing.

I'm a part timer and only live here half the year. I have a grandaughter going to medical school here and the wife and I share the chores of looking after her. But don't get me wrong, I certainly enjoy my time here.

It is not always as easy as it should be. The wife left for Manila yesterday to fly-out this morning for the states. I took her to the bus station. dirt lot on the side of the road and got her a comfortable seat on a newer chinese bus. This was suppose to be the express service. Well the bus got side tracked due to some of the area being flooded. Took 7 hours to get to Manila. About two hours longer than it should have. She got to the airport and checked in and went through passport control and when she got to her gate they told her the plane had a mechanical problem and parts with a mechanic had to be flown in to fix it. They put everyone on a bus and took them to a local hotel and had brunch and waited around the hotel until the plane was ready. What I find amusing is they didn't deal with customs or passport control. They just got on a bus and took off for the hotel. This is the same airport that security offered me to bypass the long security line for a $2 donation. Well she's now on her way to Japan, but now has a 25 hour layover at Narita. So what normally is a 24 hour flight has turned into a 50 hour adventure. Oh how I love to travel.... Just thought I'd share, but no matter how confusing or unorganised it seems, it always works out in the end. reporting from the land of smiles...
