TRIP REPORT

 Tony Feredo, Manileños, CDSG member and Corregidoros reports on his recent visit to Caballo.  The article includes photos of Ft. Hughes and Ft. Drum so we've broken it into two parts due to the large number of photos. (Parts 1 and 2.) See also the Ft. Hughes, Caballo Island photo index.

2001 Corregidor Odyssey
Trip Report

Each year we have a get-together on Corregidor where we can indulge in our mutual interests. It's not an organised tour, just a bunch of people "as crazy as we are" coming together for two weeks of discovery. The big news of the 2001 trip is the finding of the WWII Parachute Canopy. We've met every year since 1999  but it's been difficult to write a series of articles....and 2001 was especially important because of the canopy...
