this just happened recently. my friends and i went to Baler. it's my first time to go there and yung friends ko, twice na sila nakapunta dun but d sila nagmaneho. this time, my girl friend brought her Fortuner. 5 kami, 4 girls and my friend's brother para katulong sa pagmamaneho. the road to Baler is very tricky. mind you, we went there without a map so tanong galore kami and just followed the signs. We arrived in Baler safely. But.... on our way back, naligaw kami. oh my! we left kasi Baler at 6pm because we targetted to be in Manila by 11pm kasi may duty pa yung kasama naming magddrive ng 6am. We made a wrong turn, ended up passing the most damaged road in Aurora. We crossed boulders of rocks, streams and deep rivers. ang nakakatakot pa is walang street lights. i was seated at the back most part of the Fortuner eh ang tagtag. 3 hours of off road challenge. grabe, tapos buti na lang madilim kasi makikita mo talaga bangin yung mga nasa gilid. i was at the back nga d ba but i never dared to look at my back. eto pa, may mga streets na may cement pero putol yung tiping 100 meters lang. yung friend ko, since semento, humarurot hanggang sa steel bridge only to find out, putol yung bridge. wala kasing ilaw! tapos some of the men said sa ilalim daw kami dumaan. my gosh, ang lalim na river ha kasi sabi nung mga lalake, ang mga motor daw nila binbuhat. good thing, those angels helped us kung saan kami makakatawid na hindi lulubog yung sasakyan namin. tapos after crossing the river, the road up was like 70 degrees ang anggulo so dapat harurot ka talaga. natatakot pa talaga kami kasi d ba madaming npa's dun. we drove and drove lang hanggang umabot kami ng cabanatuan. natagtag ako sa byahe pero mas nastress yata ako sa mga dinaanan namin.
pagdating pa sa cabanatuan, we asked some police for directions, sabi ba naman sa amin, may dugo daw yung harap ng sasakyan namin. whaaaat? turns out, fruit lang pala na nasagaan ng friend ko kanina. jusko, baka maprecinto pa kami.
