2 hours of sleep. 60 km travel from home. More than 10 challenges to complete. It is not a Math problem, but these figures put me in a sore state today. To sum it up, I survived the #PioneerAdventure in Kampo Trexo, Alfonso, Cavite. A fun activity prepared to us by Pioneer Insurance to introduce new Travel Buddy Insurance for extreme sports.
When we were on top, I was thinking of backing out. But I didn’t want to regret missing the chance. Plus, I thought rappeling is a survival technique, and I had to experience it – if not learn it. I was battling with myself as I tried to get in the position. It was not easy! Leaning back and putting all your weight suspended in the air while holding on to the rope – your life line. When I got in this position, I was already hysterical. I regretted going down, and I thought that if I get tired of holding on to the rope, I would drop flat and dead on the ground. I did a Tarzan stunt, and I was hoping a helicopter or superman would save me!
Seriously, I knew I was insured with Travel Buddy Insurance, but I might die from anxiety and not from extreme activities.
(whew! that was easy! I kept on telling everyone I do this everyday. Haha)

I felt like a monkey while doing all the challenges (!!!) I never grew up climbing trees or playing games outside our home. These things were all new to me. The curiosity is what probably pushes me to keep going. For the countless times and adventures I have embraced, I have already proven myself that I can do them. But in this case, the motivation is not my ego, but my team. These were all selfless stunts. While doing all the challenges, I was thinking, so this is what it feels when you are a fireman, trying to save someone from a burning house, a policeman who is chasing a criminal. For once I would want to believe that movie stunts are real and characters can really do jump and Spiderman stunts if there is a good reason and motivation.
I love it when I heard them say “I made it”. It made me think of my first zipline experience.
Happy memories fueled my energy.
For those who love camping and glamping, here’s an insurance plan for you – the MediCash Dengue Insurance which is available for only Php 350. The plan covers an individual for one-year with Php10,000 cash assistance upon diagnosis of Dengue (for 1 to 70 years old).
Thank you too Outpax!
