tear-your-hair-out traffic snarls 'round malls and
last-minute noche buena plannings,

who: h peeps and friends (14 people grand total)
2am: meet @ mcdonald's el pueblo; wait for the van that will pick us up.
3am: leave for capas, tarlac
5.30am: arrive in capas.
7-ish: get on those 4x4s and start the ride!
i have already lost track of time from the time we all boarded those 4x4s until the end of the trip. ;-)
the ideal 4x4! we were sitting at first but i noticed the tarp can be moved, so we asked the driver if we could stop and take the tarp off so we could stand. so from that time on, the four of us were standing the whole time. :)
the two other 4x4s
the whole package cost us P2,250 which included a roundtrip van transfers, 4x4, a local tour guide, travel insurance, conservation and skyway toll fees, and even an id with a lanyard. we didn't get the snack option offered; instead, all of us feasted on M's scrumptious pork and chicken adobo with egg. yumyumyum! :D
another nice thing about this trip is the fact that it's during the off-peak season. the place is much calmer.
