From my Inbox: 40 Before 40

CAB Campers and Backpackers Cavite Mountaineering Tado Jimenez
Hiking in the mountains that involves rock climbing, crossing glaciers, river crossing, trekking, as well as simple scrambling is called Mountaineering. It is an outdoor sport to attain, or attempting to attain, high post of the mountain regions, mainly for the pleasure of the climb that require experience, physical ability, technical knowledge and presence of mind. 

Why 40 BEFORE 40?

In March 2013 a mountaineering group Campers And Backpackers (CAB) were initially start founded by Paul Joseph Hernando with his three co-founding mountaineering enthusiast Franco Brecia, Gab Lozada and Erwin Ray Anacay.  

Like other mountaineering group, CAB started a couples or three until it reach a huge number of active members. The reason why Campers And Backpackers (CAB) was formed is to tribute the mission of the late Actor/Comedian Arvin Jimenesz A.K.A. TADO aiming to conquer 40 mountains before reaching 40 years old.


Our Mission is to reach forty (40) summits before reaching the age of Forty (40). To be at the forefront of the sports with safety in mind as the highest priority and to enhance environmental advocacy program for a responsible and outstanding mountaineers.


To be known and renowned as a team of individuals who shares the same passion and love for mountaineering. We would like to be known as a household name when it comes to trekking, hiking and mountaineering. We would like to introduce and influence everybody, especially the youth to try and be a part of this extreme sport.

The Journey to Forty started here . . .

Mt. Pico de Loro

Mt. Talamitam


Mt. Batulao

Mt. Manabu

Tarak Ridge

Mt. Kalisungan

Mt. Gulugod Baboy

Mt. Balagbag

Mt. Maculot

Mt. Daguldol

Mt. Pulag

As official the group reached sixteen (16) peaks and still counting, targeting Mt. Apo the highest mountain in the Philippines as their last Mountain before reaching the age of forty (40) years old. To note, the oldest member of the group is now thirty five (35) years old but still on a challenge to complete the last twenty four (24) peaks five year from now.

To all the officials and members of Campers And Backpackers, you are truly an inspiration not just for our co-mountaineers but for all the people who inspired by your works and your idol, Tado Jimenez. 

Rock n Roll to the World CAB!!!
