important note (rodriguez, rizal);
Rodriguez, Rizal is a first-class, urban municipality in the province of Rizal, Philippines. The town's old name, Montalban, refers to its mountainous topography. It was also the town's official name from 1909. The town's official name is taken from the family name of Eulogio Rodriguez, Sr., one of the most prominent Montalbe├▒os. The legend of Bernardo Carpio is said to have happened in the mountains of the town.

Andres Bonifacio together with his 8 men fled to the mountains of montalban. It is where the Pamitinan cave located and it becomes their head quarter. It is also said that in this cave an important event happened. The katipuneros wrote something on the wall of the cave, "viva la independecia filipinas" which also means "long live the Philippine independence".

And according to the locals, pamitinan cave was also used by the japanese soldiers during the world war 2 as their hide-out.

beban (steven joseph) is the endearment nickname I gave to my 5-year old nephew because he always been admiring how I appreciate nature and travels. I decided to bring him with my journey to experience at a very young age how spelunking and trekking can be tiring but fulfilling for him. Probably one of the most youngest spelunker and trekker in our country, I just thought so, hehehe !!

i just made-up this decision the night before while thinking for new adventure this weekend. i asked her mother (my elder sister) to prepare all the things needed for the 1st backpacking of her son like basic clothings, snacks and other needs of a typical 5-yr old boy. so at 0900H, we head our way on budget do-it-yourself rides to sitio wawa.
