    I breeze thru the 3rd checkpoint in Tugegarao.

    ---> https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=...=Tugegara&t=h&mra=dpe&mrsp=1&sz=10&via=1&z=10



    It was about 5:45am when I passed. I was still hot to ride because it was only 105 kilomemeter since the last checkpoint, still warming up. After having my passport stamped and top up fuel..... it was time to go...




    About 75kms away

    --> https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=...=Tugegara&t=h&mra=dpe&mrsp=1&sz=10&via=1&z=10



    I had to stop at the Magapit Bridge and do some photo ops because this was the first time I brought the scooter to the area. Wouldn't miss the chance to capture it with a pix. Besides, I had to upload to facebook so my followers would know my whereabouts too.



    I was now on the halfway mark of the 1200kms Ironman Challenge on my scooter. Balintawak to Magapit about 602kms after at about 7am

    --> https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=...magap&t=h&mra=dpe&mrsp=4&sz=8&via=1,2,3,4&z=8




    Here's some pix I captured of that moment.....

    The sun was finally up and I can callup my famliy to inform them to check and track me thru gsblue's WRU GPS Tracking and Navigation. No more worries for family and loved ones as well as other followers..... Thanks for the tracker WRU (gsblue)!



    At 7:38am my loved ones tracked me here....

    The next checkpoint was in Sanchez Mira, Cagayan province. From the last stop at the bridge to there was only 84kms.

    "Hello Checkpoint # 4! Please stamp my passport and top my fuel up sir!" Those were my opening remarks to them. Exchange a few chit chat with the the De La Cruz brothers, Onie, Egay, Bernie and the other sibling before......


    I bid them farewell.....

    Just found an ABS-CBN news article....wish I hadn't. Herc was killed by a truck on C5 in a hit and run.

    RIP, my friend, and my deepest sympathy to your family. You will always be missed.

    I was with him last night at the BOSS Ironman awarding night. He was very happy and was hugging everyone and giving high fives saying "I love you brother". Thanks for the good memories. You will always be remembered.

    Wow this is terrible news... really took the wind out of my sails today...

    The sport has lost a great guy, and to something as senseless as a hit and
    run no less. Hope they find the responsible parties! Cannot imagine what
    his family must be going through right now... Deepest sympathies to them
    in this difficult time.
