    As many predicted, the natural jungle of General Nakar became trickier as the area was previously devastated by Typhoon Karding (international name Noru). To make matters worse for the participants, a deluge was encountered during the course of the event.

    The campers — who spent three days mingling and relaxing with like-minded individuals — started their journey on October 21 and received a warm welcome from General Nakar Mayor Esee Rozul.
