    Interested to hear what the road is like east of San Jose to Baler.
    Looks all sealed on Google Street View.
    I did a ride through the mountain province while back and next time am thinking to go to Baler then up and across to Solano.
    Probably February 17 I will be back there.

    not sure about the road condition from san jose going to baler as I came from Cabanatuan then pantabangan and baler. pantabangan to baler is paved with some road reblocking/repairs during my ride. upon my return I got lost and used the baler-bongabon route which was very bad as mostly the mountain passes are all affected with landslides because of the recent typhoon although it was already being restored and some 30% of the road still unpaved/dirt/gravel and there is a river crossing you have to negotiate.
