Muling, Gupitan, Kapalong, Davao del Norte with MISFI
Imagine going on a cross-country motorcycle ride for 6 hours. You kick off by loading the bike on a bamboo raft across a river then drive along mountain trails through forests, knee-deep mud, slippery stones, overhanging branches, cliffs, rain and sun. Oh, and put side carriages on the motorbikes a.k.a. skylab. You may or may not ride on the carriages. By the time you reach Muling, expect all muscles and joints to be stiff and aching and thanking the heavens for giving you the best driver in the world because somehow he has kept the motorcycle upright for those 6 hours.
