- A long distance push around the Philippines. At first you might ask: is that even possible? Yes, it is; although it may be a challenge, it is definitely a whole lot of adventure. The Philippines being an archipelago means that in order to run a long-distance push around the country youll have to cross the seas from one island to another. Picture mountains and bodies of water surrounding you and detaching you from the noises and distractions that the city brings. This is what I got to experience coming along with Tatay Felcon on his journey home. Tatay Felcon is a 55-year-old fellow who has a different view of the world from the rest. He had been pushing his way around the Philippines for months now, stopping by towns and letting his advocacies be heard. He is an environmentalist seeking change for the better, a young-hearted adventurer with a burning passion to see the world as it is. This write up will be about my 6-day journey with Tatay Felcon and the amazing people we met along the way.
Hello all! It's Chris, back yet again with a writeup about New Mexico's 5th Annual Skate Swap and Sock Drive. It's an event that came about during a brainstorm session years ago, trying to answer one question: How do we throw an event benefiting local charity, the scene at large, and the skaters themselves?
