  1. I think you're exactly right Eddie! I look forward to meeting up with you all at the next meeting. I'd be happy to give you my thoughts on Dipolog. Take care. john
  2. Just wanted to say "thanks" to all of my Dumaguete Friends for your advice and comments on your city and where to stay. We stayed at Bethel Guest House and it was a pleasant and enjoyable stay. I must say, you all have a wonderful city and area, and it became very obvious that there are a a lot of you in this area and you all seemed to be pleasant and happy. Everyone I met was was cordial, welcoming, and very helpful. I hope to see you all again very soon. Cheers! John
  3. Sounds great. we will try to include that date. We followed Jim and Dave's advice and made reservations at Bethel. Thanks again to all of you for responding and helping us out. Take care and see you soon.
  4. Thanks Jack........I will make sure I plan for that next trip. We plan to be back again in 2 to 3 weeks. Take care my friend.
  5. Thanks for the responses guys........I think we will stay closer to town this first trip. We are use to the motorcab routine.......thats all we have here in Dipolog. There's some great places outside of town....... but maybe the next trip. I've heard a lot of good feedback about your town........Thanks much
  6. Jack, We plan to be there this Friday thru Monday. My wife suddenly realized her passport had expired........
  7. Hello All.............My wife and I are visiting Dumaguete for a few days and I was wondering if any of you have any recommendations for hotels to stay in? I don't mind paying for a nice, clean experience. We're taking the ferry in from Dipolog and this will be our first visit. Thanks for any advice you can offer...... Peaceful John
  8. Az Kid.......you might want to give eFax a try next time you need to fax. They had a 30 day free trial and maybe still do. in any case, it's simple and online so it's immediate. Good luck my friend.
  9. That will worry your shorts off if your money doesn't arrive on time. They (the SSA) swears payments are not affected by the shutdown.....and since the process is entirely automated, I tend to think it might be an issue with an administrative mess up like you think, or maybe a bank issue (which has happen to me once). Good luck my friend and I hope you see your cash asap.
  10. I live in Northwestern Mindanao (Dipolog City) and I burn premium 95 octane every fill up. No problem with availability at all Ninpo2dan. I really like the Lexus SUV's, some the best on the road. But I would caution you about having or driving a vehicle of this class and value on the roads in most cities. There's never a doubt about "if" you will get it scratched or dented (or worse), it's only a matter of when. Give it some thought......good luck my friend.
  11. Good info OMW.....thanks for sharing. I'm very close to your situation. I think I will email James O'Neil to see if he can provide more info. It was my understanding that it would affect my military benefits.......but it seems I'm wrong (nothing new ......just ask my wife ) I will share any info I get with you.
  12. MAC.......Thanks for sharing part of your life with us, even as painful as it must be for you. I know personally it will be hard for you to completely move on until you know there's a wooden stake through this blood suckers heart, but trust me, karma is alive and well in her world. Ignore the cold heartless comments, and know you've got a lot of friends and supporters here who wish and want the best for you. Time is the ultimate healer and I assure you there's a great lady and partner waiting for you......just be patient my friend. Good luck to you MAC and please keep us posted on your progress....... Most of us are always here...... day by day...... Peace to you and God Bless.
  13. Drop the 011 Mac. It should be just as I typed +63 88 387 1216. Include the +.
  14. Hi Mac......Here's a number for you......+63 88 387 1216. I called the number from here in the RP and they answered. Good Luck my friend.
  15. Hi Terry........I lived in Costa Rica prior to the RP and have been here a year and a half, give or take a few days. Although CR is not El Salvador, it is Central America and similar in customs, etc. My experience has been very positive, once I digested the customs and the predominate trait and fact the people in the RP are of a passive nature and do not like or accept confrontation in any fashion. They are submissive to authority figures and one of the worse things you can do in public is embarrass or humiliate another person. This may be hard to believe, but traffic here is worse and riding through the middle of town in a motor cab during rush hour is more exciting that any wild roller coaster you have ever been on or heard of. All that being said......once I made my adjustment, I really like it here. The diet is slightly different, and chickens and pigs have very short lives here. Safety and security is very fluid and depends greatly on what part of the country you live in. I live in on the wild and dangerous Mindanao Island, in the North West portion, and I have never had a problem or felt threatened. That being said, I never let my guard down and I have eyes in the back of my head. When I find a person staring at me, I stare back and that seems to make them disappear. I have good friends. a good life, and my Filipino wife is the best. Cost of living is much much better than CR and I am content with the products and food that is available. All in All, I am very happy with my move here. Good Luck to you my friend and let me know if you have any specific questions. John
