Second Lagataw Invitational Climb (UPDATE)

Mt Tenglawan Camp Site
I have decided to reduce the climb size for the Second Lagataw Invitational Climb to 10pax or less. The fewer the better! This Bakun Trio is not the traditional Lobo-Kabunian-Tenglawan sequence and will not involve any chartering of transport vehicle. Instead we will use public transportation and will walk the trails from Mt Tenglawan in Sinacbat up to Mts Kabunian and Lobo in Bakun Central. As of now, only two have proven qualified for the trek!
     1.   Dennis Hisanan
     2.   Eduardo Bedural

This time, I’ll be stricter with the following rules:
1.    NO TRAINING CLIMB: NO CLIMB
2.     NO PRE-CLIMB: NO CLIMB
The two rules may be waived only under EXCEPTIONAL circumstances!

I don’t want this expedition to end up like the rather bitter conflict between Ms B.E. and a mountaineering group during their Mt Pulag climb. I don’t wish to include on the list any nuisance participants! If you think you will be liability to the group, you may join other open climbs during the Holy Week! Being a BEGINNER DOESN’T DISCQUALIFY you from being a part of the climb. Being a veteran and/or being a friend of mine DON’T GUARANTEE YOU ANY SLOT on the list. Let the training climbs decide for you!

Projected Expenses

Unlike the First Lagataw Invitational Climb, Bakun Trio is technically not a repeat climb for me. The participants don’t need to cover my expenses! But I would really appreciate it if somebody could organize the creation of an Event Tarp, Shirt and ID! Chip in na lang lahat!

Description
Amount in PhP
Victory Liner Bus Ticket P455 x 2 (to and from)
900
Taxi fare to KM 5 (P100/4pax) or we could rent a jeepney
25
Bus fare (KM 5 to Sinacbat)
160
Registration @ Sinacbat for Mt Tenglawan. I have already negotiated with the Brgy Captain. P100/pax is the best price I could pull down the hefty P200/pax
100
Registration @ Bakun Central for Mts Kabunian and Lobo
50
Overnight lodging at the municipal hall. I’ll try to haggle! I don’t recommend camping outdoors. I’ll discuss the reason on the pre-climb meeting
150
Bus fare (Bakun Central to Baguio City)
170
Total
P1555
Safe Amount
P2500

    0. tuloy po ito kahit solo climb lang.
    kung gusto niyo sumama...eto ang mga kailangang malaman

    1. Paki-review or pa-print ng IT sa taas!

    2. Basta nasa KM 5 terminal na kau sa La Trinidad by 8 am march 21 thursday. Sa may petron sa tapat ng Jollibee ang paradahan ng bus...ISANG BIYAHE LANG PO TO...ihanda na ang plan B NINYO pag hindi niyo to naabutan...kasi I won't be there for you! tutuloy ako sa Bakun! pag di niyo alam papunta dun, dapat 7am Thursday March 21 nasa Baguio na kayo para makasabay kayo sa akin sa taxi...hindi ko favorite subject ang Waiting 101!

    3. MAY TICKET NA PO AKO PAPUNTANG BAGUIO. Thursdya March 21 0100hrs yung biyahe ko. Victory Liner Terminal Pasay...Malamang hindi tayo sabay sabay sa biyahe papuntang Baguio! WALA nang March 20 2355hrs na biyahe! Dapat no later than 1am ng Thursday biyahe niyo pa-Baguio...alam niyo na ang dahilan kung nabasa niyo ang IT sa taas. May biyaheng Baguio din ang Genesis at Dagupan transit...pakitanong nlng po si www para sa karagdagang kaalaman sa transpo! TRANSPORTATION po ang pinaka-crucial na part sa IT na to...kasi wala naman ako problema sa LAKAS niyo sa TRAIL!hehe...busy po tayong lahat! kanya kanyang research!

    Mga katanungan ni ser dennis
    1. May Water Source po ba dun? at san po tayo makakakuha?

    --> dapat magdala ang bawat isa ng lalagyanan ng tubig na at least 1.5L ang capacity...labas pa dun ang trail water container niyo! hindi po malinaw kung saan ang water sources sa mga bundok na to...isipin nlng natin na sa jumpoff tau kukuha ng pang-inom at pangluto

    2. Pwede po ba dun magHAMOK?(natutulog lang kasi ako s labas sir,.hehe)

    --> ang campsite sa tenglawan ay kalbo sa Kabunian, mejo kalbo din...pero may nakasabay ako sa antique na magaling magset-up ng hammock sa kalbong campsit...kung kaya niyo yun, game!

    3. Yung about sa meal plan? pano po?kanya kanya nalang?

    --> yep! pati gamit! SELF-CONTAINED at SELF-RELIANT dapat lahat!

    4.Meron po ba dun palengke tayong madadaanan na pwede tyo makapamili bago mag-start trek?

    -->yep! pero maliliit mga palengke dito...baka walang karne...pag may delata man, sardinas, corned beef at meat loaf lng...minsan ironic sa benguet...kahit sila ang pinanggagalingan ng gulay sa manila, wala silang binibentang gulay dun! try niyo humingi kung gusto niyo tlg nang gulay! may mga alak sila (pero limited choices)...sa pang-huling gabi na po ako iinom! kung mapilit niyo man ako, siguro hanggang tatlong shots lng!hehe senxa, nagseseryosong adventure racer to! pag gusto niyo magyosi, wag kayo lapit sa akin!hehe


    5. Anong byahe po ang sasakyan natin papuntang bakun?

    --> may nag-iisang bus po from baguio to Sinacbat (Bakun)...wala po name ang bus na to...kung gusto niyo matunton ang terminal nila, tanong niyo sa mga Baguio "Saan po ba ang La Trinidad Trading Post" (other keywords 'KM5', 'biyaheng Sinacbat', 'Petron KM5 sa tapat ng Jollibee')...8 am SHARP po ang alis nito...

    6. San po tayo magkikita-kita dun?
    pwede tau mag-assembly sa Victory Liner Terminal sa Baguio...kung hindi convenient, sa SMS (or txt) nalng tau magtanungan...0920 252 2176 po!

    7. yan palang sir naiisip ko. next nalang yung iba. hehehe

    --> next na rin lang yung ibang sagot!hehe
