I feel for you on those long trips 70 km the costs add up so hopefully, they gave you some sort of Administrator name or some sort of format you could go on and I'm unsure if you've ever drafted letters like this:

To: Honorable Administrator Philippine Bureau of Immigration
(address directly below this lined up)

From: Your name and below this your address

Subj: 6 month Visa extension request

-4 lines down would be your explanation.

-4 lines down again your printed name and signature center of the document.

But the positive thing is you are returning to the US so if you plan on retiring here? I'd knock out that 13a Visa, requirements and also information I had to use through the Philippine Consulate stateside, I'm from ND so I had to use the Chicago Philippine Consulate, here's the consulate finder map for your state, I did mine through the mail system it took me two months but if you can make it to their office possibly much faster.

Immigration documents I used and requirements, if you do this make sure these documents are for your state, current and unfortunately the PBI forms aren't standardized or weren't when I applied in 2007 but all documents were similar the headings were different also, if done stateside it's much easier less running around in the Philippines and no probationary.
