    So, as a news reporter, i was assigned to cover the 'first international game fishing competition' in our country---with the president formally opening the gig...

    ...this one---

    I thought The Captain would be the best choice to be with me on this journey--enjoy!

    Welcoming committee...

    The Captain making the moves...

    It took awhile for the president to arrive...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    She made the speech...the symbolic inaugural throwing in of the hook and line...then left via the presidential chopper...

    The Captain wanted to hitch a ride with the president--but another 'captain' from the presidential security group said 'no drunken pirates allowed!' Hehe!

    Chopper flew...blew the captain away...

    You gotta respect a man with priorities. The captain only has 1 good hand and he's using it for his true love: booze.

    No time for love Dr. Jones.

    It's originally from Temple of Doom, but you're right, they also quoted it on Clerks.

    Siargao is located on the southern part of the Philippines---it is surfing haven!

    [​IMG]

    But to get there...first, a painful 10-12-hour trip from Manila which includes air, land and water travel...

    The captain wanted a better view of our journey to Siargao..

    ...after almost two hours of plane ride, two hours of land trip and another 5 and a half hour boat ride...CLOUD 9!

    manmachine seems realized the real fun of toy. It's not how many toys you got, it is how much fun you can get while the toy is immersed in your life.

    Jealous you can be so close to the president...
