Rappler journos spell fun at the Laoag Sand Dunes

4WD Thrill

After wrapping up the #MoveIlocos event at the Northwestern University last week, I let the hardcore journalists of Rappler live through Laoag’s signature sand adventure via Lead Movement‘s own brand of hospitality.

Watching the editors outside of the newsroom, hanging  loose in the truest sense of the phrase, gave me a sense of exoneration.

Before letting my guests ride the rough stuff, I’d rap my regulation safety spiels like a flight attendant and end it by reminding them to scream their lungs out. Rappler managing editor/book author Glenda Gloria affirms, “What a stress-buster!”

Heheh, Glenda, Zach, Chay Hofileña, Paterno Esmaquel, Voltaire Tupaz and Patricia Evangelista wouldn’t show me the incriminating footage of their 4×4 adventure. Unfortunately the Rappler CEO, Maria Ressa, wasn’t able to join in the fun.
