Just climbing all the volcanoes I wish to here in the Philippines would chew up many months without even going into the fishing I'd like to undertake.
Bill, it sounds like it's time to throw in the towel, get on a plane and get yourself over here for good. Retirement isn't half bad really. Gets kinda boring after a year or so. But for me, that wore off too each time I remembered having to be at work and putting up with all the BS every day. Better to climb a volcano than having the boss climbing on your back all day.

Sadly Gene, in the Philippines I'm the boss. Anyway I am in the Philippines for a couple of years at least so hope to get a few volcanoes tackled while I am here. I have managed to get a fair bit of cross-country running in Rizal done which has been enjoyable (including running through the slums). There is a long weekend coming up so sea kayaking the Hundred Islands National Park in Pagasinan is an option however I rather suspect the weather won't be accommodating.

I've worked in quite a few countries in the Asia-Pacific region and am not ready to throw in the towel just yet!

Ahh okay. Too bad as working kinda takes the fun outa being here. Especially having to be the boss. Not an easy task. I did that twice here in two different places. It was interesting and some fun but found that the "challenges" of being a foreign boss in the Philippines was almost not worth the hassle.
Hard to tell about weather this time of year for sure. Need the rain but with the typhoons, we seem to get it all at once usually. 100 Islands should be a good place if ya can just stay dry.

Billfish,

Managing anywhere can be rough, but definitely will keep you busy. I am currently pursuing to get my English TEFL Certification so I can teach English into a school in near to later future.
