Meet Up in Subic ?

I'll be in Subic Bay off and on until about the 18th of this month if any members want to meet up for a beer at Vascos or somewhere.

I try to go two or three times a year, but I don't always have the time.
This is a nice time to go weather wise.

I have spent both my trips in the Phils this time of year, and it was great. Sagada, Banaue & Bagiuo were down right cold. Reminded me of summer in S.F. We will all have to hook up when we all arrive there. My plan is less than 2 years.......i2f

I hope to sail to PI in the summer of 2012 if I can get the boat done enough to do the trip. The weather here really sux for working on boats out doors.

We thought we would be leaving S.F for the Phils this winter. This hitchiker on my neck has put us back a year. Life can be a challenge at times..........i2f

Yeah! It seems no matter how well one plans, something pops up just as one is right in the middle of progress.

I was counting on some of this good weather to get more done on the boat when the 200' water line somewhere between the meter and the house decides to spring a leak at a rate of 27K gallons a month. And the line is 4-1/2' under an asphalt easement.

Delays, delays! I've got to sell this house and get out on the water.

Sorry to here about your misfortunes guys...really, that sucks...especially the neck deal...bum deal to be sure.
Arrived in Manila this afternoon...will head over to Subic Sunday or Monday.
I must say I'm a bit surprised that we don't have anyone wanting to meet up in this neck of the woods....go figure?
