No New Posts Guest Board

In order to join as a Forum Member (i.e., become a plebe), we require that our Guests make themselves known through a few threads on this board. Due to the number of spammers constantly attempting to attain membership, we're expecting that you prove your "humanity". Membership isn't required to start a thread on the Guest Board, so don't abuse the privilege. Spam and product links will be killed joyfully, without toleration. If your post is without merit, or off-topic, or even impolite, we'll kill it fast. Worthwhile posts will be moved where appropriate.

Tayabas Work Camp: I'm in Manila from the US and saw some old postings on the Camp. Can anyone send details on it's specific location and how to get there using public transit where possible? Thanks Mar 20, 2016 13:11:37 GMT 8
Glenn: Hi, are you talking about Camp O'Donnell or the Hellships memorial? Mar 28, 2016 8:45:39 GMT 8
rey jimenez: Hi Karl, great work here! I live in Pangasinan, and was keen on retracing the Villaverde Trail from San Nicolas all the way to malico sometime in 2014. However I was told by the tourism officer of San Nicolas then that the trail is NOT HIKEABLE/ not pass Apr 5, 2016 19:58:06 GMT 8
rey jimenez: not passable on foot. Any idea if the trail is open now? I also read online that the villaverde trail is sometimes used by some insurgents (New People's Army) elements for their travel. Would surely appreciate any help on this route as I would like to Apr 5, 2016 20:00:39 GMT 8
rey jimenez: conduct a guidied tour or a trail run event to commemorate the heroism of our troops during the war. Apr 5, 2016 20:01:12 GMT 8
