Your Vee is looking good in a dirty-girl way, Herc! Ridden hard and put away wet (and muddy) !
I'm looking forward to seeing you by this weekend, in Manila. For this trip, I'm making plans to ride to Banaue, Sagada and points north on a Transalp. Will probably fit Baguio, Vigan and Pagudpud into the itinerary. I'll be interested in knowing where your water crossings were, so there is a chance of avoiding them.
(Actually that looked fun!)
