The LEAD FXD Ilocos Outdoor Adventure Package

off the beaten path

We’re back to sun-kissed days and raw nights at LEAD Movement because we believe nothing feeds the spirit better than expanding your comfort zone to the great outdoors. Inviting you to trail with us through the jagged hills of the northeastern towns in Ilocos Norte. Expect primeval trails and nothing else but nature at most parts. Bring your own gear and ride your own 4WDs. But there will be great food as you wish. That is why we’ve nicknamed the adventure LEAD FXD for food and drive.

We did the adventure ourselves. Check out the photos at Sidaga (Burgos), Tadao (Pasuquin), Solcok, Tamdagan and Vintar Dam (Vintar). The chilly temperature in Sidaga makes it the best spot to spend the night, even in the midst of summer. Solcok Falls is not too far from the route. The boys explored the cave through the mammoth rock with hand-carved steps that are estimated to be more than half a century old.

Playing With Big Boys

GoPro Hero3

Adventure is fleeting. Sometimes we need something to stimulate our mind, relive those awesome moments all over again. Cameras were invented to make us see every spontaneous detail, tiny or great, relevant or irrelevant, such as the color of the sky, the movement of water, the bend of a tree, that life-threatening swerve for instance. — put together, those tiny details complete the picture.

GoPro  Hero3

But what about the restless adrenaline junkie who wants to play and record his feat at the same time? A handsfree GoPro camera can be a wonderful fix. Ericke simply knows what to send the boys. For the techies, the Hero3 has a 12 MP sensor capable of capturing 4K digital video at 15 fps, 2.7K video at 30 fps, 1440p at 48 fps, 1080p at 60fps, 720p at 120 fps and WVGA at 240 fps. The lens is fixed and it doesn’t have a viewfinder, though you can check the view through your phone ‘coz it’s built with WiFi.  The video below is just a test case of the HD quality.

GoPro Test Drive

While imaginativeness is needed the moment you click a handheld camera, a GoPro makes you see all within the 170-degree angle if you’re mounting it good. There are various mounting accessories you can purchase depending on the activity you will be recording. It’s shockproof, lightweight that you can carry it on your head. A waterproof case can likewise be purchased to protect the cam while filming extreme water fun.

Enjoy photos of the boys taken with my D90. I hope you are starting  your week good.
