So if there's one who can translate please contribute, we might just find something that we can connect to Philippine T> Hunting.

Still no contributed translations? :-\ :-\ ::) ::)


Well, I have been always ready to contribute more, such as maps but since this is a one way highway, its better to stop this..

Few days from now, i'll be back to where my heart belongs--be hitting country roads again and will be there most of my time, i selected to be with the natives, indigenous people, and will be teaching secondary level students for good.. Educator by weekdays, a hunter by weekends ;) ;) ;) ;)

Fresh air again, be with nature again.. Stay safe everyone and be brave!---destiny favors the thinking braves :D :D

the problem is, the maps are so out of focus and blurred, its impossible to read any of the writing.
so, translating is out I'm afraid..... ;)

This is part of Topo map Gaihuzu of Mindanao gensan-davao-bukidnon...
Interpretations would allow us to know whether there are some things we can connect to T. hunting though this is not a T. map but for sure this was done somewhere 1942-1944..

This from gaihuzo gensan-davao provinces-bukidnon topo map.
interpretations to the first cut -out, will prod me to post other cut-outs.

Or better,


pm me if someone who knows, so that we avoid posting all here, to the delight of arm-chair hunters who doesn't want to spend a sweat researching and instead just go to forums and fish informations without even caring to share something worthwhile from them.

 another descriptions and last.

I already found a translator  a kin and a Japanese descendant somewhere in Calinan ( a kin and a nikkei-jin)
I'll try to figure out what info in context to T hunting i can derive from those ww2 Imperial Japs army Topo maps.

Informations are just somewhere out there, like, there where boxed diagrams with drawings of a plane, it seems to me in a mountaintops? ::) ::) ::). Knowing the locations of hangars, offices, headquarters, bunkers, previous mining areas and etc. could be another level :-* :-* :-*

One calling is nearing (last week of next month), i'll be in a Valley school. I might be gone here for long. Back to commune with nature, to the basics and far from technology.
