Road Trip to Kalon Barak

Yesterday was our baby's string of many firsts.

First, we named our baby, Bill. I know Bill doesn't have anything to do with a car. Unlike others, I didn't name it after its color, it's performance, or whatever's under its hood. I could come up with Silver Bullet, Speed, Sasha (because it is grey haha), Lil Beasty, or even Sasuke because it almost sounds like the car brand. But I like Bill Parish from Meet Joe Black. It doesn't really have to have a significance and I don't need a reason to name it Bill. But Bill sounds good and that's good enough.

I know naming a car is not an uncommon practice. I think, if not all, almost every car owner does it and I think I know why. Mike Wazowski once said, "Once you name it, you start getting attached to it." Once you get attached to it, you take good care of it and I would like to believe that would make you a better driver.

Anyway, it was also yesterday when it had its first wash. Bill needs to look good because we had it blessed.

We also took bill on its first out of town trip. We went to Sarangani Province to celebrate my lola's birthday. But before that, we took it on a road trip.

And a rough one at that. I never really intended Bill to go through such an ordeal. I never expected the road to be unforgiving. Since it was a spur of the moment getaway, the lack of research has taken its toll on the car. But it survived the steep and rocky roads just to get us to this:

At least, it was all worthwhile.

Kalon Barak Skyline Ridge is 2,677 feet above sea level. It is located in Malungon, Sarangani Province. We didn't spend a lot of time there since we still have a party to attend to. But I would definitely say that sunrises and sunsets would be breathtaking here. And also, if you're lucky, you might chance upon a sea of clouds and I know that experience is going to be surreal. It's perfect for dates, picnics, and you can even set up camp there.

If you are going to travel there on a private transport, I suggest you only do it if you have an SUV or a 4x4 car. Because even if Bill was able to survive all that (Bill is an AUV by the way), I would never do something like that ever again. Naawa talaga ako sa car. That was its first off road experience and probably the last.
