"Under New Management"
- Japanese Infantry Checkpoint at Mariveles, 1943.
This trip report is too large to post all at once, so I will break it
into three separate sections.
There is a "navigation" tag stapled to the top of the first and the
bottom of the last page of each of the three parts. To go to the next
part, click the text on the tag.
In the past Karl and I have talked about the Navy Tunnels that were
located in Mariveles, Bataan. Last year he got the ball rolling with the
result that two tunnels can now be entered. You can also visit the
locations of three more inaccessible tunnels.
By early January it was time for a trip to meet up with Karl and go
exploring. After the tunnels we planned to see other war related areas
and go find a fire control station on nearby Cochinos Point. We would
even go off to the 'Points' if we had time.
