  1. In Canada I always see lots of RVs parked for the night in Walmart parking lots. Actually some seem to stay for quite awhile before moving on.
  2. when you assemble and have parts left over it only means you are smarter than and can build with less parts then the engineer who designed
  3. As long as Dick is happy all is good
  4. I remember in the middle 70's riding a big grey dog going down the Little Smokey between Valleyview and Donalley Corner. Blizzard, blowing snow, zero visablity, cold, pulling a trailer. We passed everything on the road, driver had nerves of steel. I got off in Nampa and could of kisses the ground I was so impressed with the driving that day. Highway was closed for weather just after we left Valleyview.
  5. 61 probably look early 50ties. Have noticed myself slowing down this winter, body just does not seem to recover after strenuous exercise/work. I am starting to fear if I do not retire to PH soon my body will be too worn out to enjoy the activities I dream about.
  6. I was under the impression filipino was the majority nationality in the Philippines
  7. I remember watching a 8 wheel Bison back over a Iltis A very high ranking gentleman had exited the Iltis about 5 min previous. My sides still hurt from laughing. Sure wish we had vidio recording phones then.
  8. Especially if you do not have a filipina guide whom is knowledgeable of where you want to go, My advise would be to come here, go to the first place on your list, enjoy, and when ready travel to the next place. Come without to much of a set itinerary. Make sure you leave plenty of time to get back to Manila for the ride home..
  9. or a gang banger, sorts like my home country only lot more prevalant here
  10. 8 yrs ago when I first started coming to the PH. I stayed with my then gf and her mother just inside the gate to the Navotas Fish Port. It was 3 days before my gf's mother let me out of the "house". She was fraid I would not make it back in one piece. I spent 5 weeks there and before I left I felt comfortable walking around in the day and had met a few people. Those 5 weeks taught more about the Philippines than I would of ever learned where I now stay in Makati. Night was somewhat different but me and gf did go out a few times after dark. Most natives stay home after dark in this neighborhood. Rent is very cheap tho. The gf's mother was paying 2500 a month (piso) for a two story place. She ran a pool table t,v, and small gambling table, sold a few beer and cokes. I built 2 small rooms for her to rent out.. in Makati where I stay now the norm rent is 24000 piso and up for a firnished one bedroom in a nice neighborhood. They aresome available for around 11000 peso but much older buildings in out of the way places.
  11. if all you want is positivity and good words see a shrink. If yo do not want to be scammed be more aware of your surroundings. fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me comes to mind. Ok sir this will be my last post here although I will continue to enjoy reading other posters here
  12. I do not have a wife, although I have been in a long distance relationship with a filipina for going on four years now. I can only spend two weeks out of every six the Philippines due to work restaints. This is my second relationship in the PH, my first wanted to have more than one partner and when I found out I ended the relationship. bigmac is a grown man , was he getting scammed, maybe, probably on the info I have read on here. Could it all been prevented by a little due diligence on his part, I believe so. .
  13. If you want or need my judgements is immaterial. this is supposedly a open forum and I was stating my thoughts and opinion of your problem . if you want someone to totally agree with you and say your are right and your wife is totally wrong that person will not be me. There are two sides to this problem and I am only hearing yours. You were sending this women your legal wife money and support. If the amount of your support is true it does seem very excessive for the cost of living and the lifestyle of most pinoy. If you have any awareness of the Philippines and I must believe you do because you came here fell in love and got married. I am glad you did not come to the Philippines and end up homeless on the street. But I do not feel sorry for you to be sitting in the US sending money to your wife without not first taking the time to personally checking the situation.
