That's why I say purge the membership every 2-3 years.......that lets you know who is available to pay and it would be quite cheaper than what I donated this time. Incorporate a 1 week free period for new membership and then a very very small initial membership fee otherwise this will happen again and then the same membership that bailed us out this time will be the same ones doing it next time.

I'll say it once again...Too easy and much cheaper this way 8)

I agree it would be a good idea. The forum belongs to everyone. We now have time to work on it

Need to purge the membership every 2-3 years with an email of Membership Continuation Policy and apply a tiny membership fee.
If any of the 7000 plus members can't donate then a 90 day warning of deletion of membership should be incurred.
This is actually too easy and too cheap.

Stay safe all.

Expat life in Philippines / Re: Baguio - worth a visit?
« Last post by medic3500 on September 24, 2020, 05:10:42 PM »
Baguio is over hyped these days. The wife and I visited just prior to the lockdown for three days and was quite disappointed. The traffic and pollution is horrible and reminded me of any other large city other than the temperature are a little cooler I won't go back. The last time I was there was nearly 20 years ago do it had changed drastically and in my opinion not for the good. Many other small mountain towns that are cleaner with sight seeing.

Hi,

I'm not sure, but I suspect a few people on here might live in Baguio, or have visited?

I'm trying to figure out whether it's worth a visit on the next trip to the Phils. I have not been up north as yet, and Vigan is on the list, but I'm trying to figure out if Baguio is worth stopping by? Is the climate that much different from Manila? Is it a pleasant town, or a congested city? Have they really chopped all the trees down? What's the pollution level like?

Worth a visit, or one to avoid?

p.s. depends on lockdown/corona, but Feb is the month we'd most likely visit (+ or - one month).

Cheers,
Tony

I myself get very little from SSDI but I will make a small donation. Unfortunately, it can't be until the 3rd. So sorry.

As of the last report we are still a little short. Contact your friends on the forum and make an appeal.
All suggestions noted, however I'm not in charge any longer. We all need to take more interest and pitch in.
All donations very much appreciated. Would gate to see this go down after so many years
