    Nice pic's, I'm homesick already! I've lived in Dumaguete for 20 years, "in remote" Negros. Going back to Manila today (I work in Myanmar) to pick up my new 990 Adventure and driving home via Batangas, Mindoro, Panay and Negros! Will post some pics once I get back.:D

    Taking a ferry, AKA (roro) for roll on roll off, to the southern tip of Cebu Island, from Dumaguete, Negros Island cost is about peso300 or $6 usd for the 60 minute ride across the channel, bike and rider.

    The say they are either WW2 tank landing craft or I suspect copies.

    Having a drink at a pool bar beach side, Artistic diving, Sipalay.

    As you can see the women of Negros are some of the most beautiful in the world. It must be the sugar cane.

    Hi Jan,

    After the BMW show, three of us road back down to Negros, We took the Antique route, I have rode it several times, good news is I found a new passage from Ilo Ilo through Santa Barbara, to Janiuay, over the hills to Antique,San Remigio to San Jose. A really cool ride, I will get a copy to you after my next ride.

    Good to finally meet you, So did you pick up the F800GS? COOL bike kinda pricey in the PI. I have one in the States.

    I wanted to give you an update on the Zumo550, I remember you asking, Now with the Philippine routable maps, the blue tooth, cardo Q2 intercom, all working seamlessly its priceless, I would recommend it. I used it all around Manila.
    I always carry my etrex vista HCX its far superior offroad.

    Catch up with you some time,

    Bryan

    Just about 45-50kms from the main Highway off the town of Castillejos in Zambales, is Barangay Pili where Lake Mampaen is located. The path leading to Pili is compact offroad with some sections of loose gravel and dry lahar (slippery!).

    Lake Mampaen was formed after the Pinatubo eruption. It was a valley rich with crops like palay and corn, but was flooded with rainwater when river paths were blocked by lahar. People who settled in what they thought were high-grounds evacuated and are now re-settled in what they deemed as the mountain part of their valley.

    Also situated in the area is the abandoned Dizon Mines. Settlers composing mostly of Aetas scour the area for minute taces of gold. They also scavenge the area for scrap metals from infrastructures buried by the lahar. A local told me that hundreds of displaced SBMA workers have also settled in the area.

    An interesting feature of the lake is a submerged church which has only it's cross above water. According to the locals I talked to, the lake has tilapias, dalag and eels. Although they bathe in the lake, some locals boil the water first before drinking as they are afraid that remnants of the chemicals used in the mines might have trickled down into the lake.

    There are lots more trails to be explored and locals say that there are some that lead to different towns of Zambales, as far as Botolan and even to Capas in Tarlac. Hmmmm....
