One of my favourite things about the Macho trek is that it leaves from right here at Fieldbase. This means the fieldbase crew can "enjoy" watching the last minute preperations before waving the team off on their adventure. This time the team were pretty much under control and headed off by about 7am, well they got about 20 metres before Steve's backpack broke and they all returned.
So far the team are doing brilliantly, despite the continuation of the rain. They are receiving their first food drop tonight at the La Esperanza Rangers Station after a day in the jungle. This group will be doing more wildcamping than the others and their first major milestone, The Dragon, is just days away. We will fill you in on their latest adventures when Rachel and Chris return tomorrow.
