After an unexpected, comfortable night’s sleep, X-Ray 1 began tackling a few days of tough hills. Luckily there were some amazing views which made the endless climbs so worthwhile. While we were fast asleep and none the wiser, our PMs packed up their tents and snuck off ahead of us on trek. We awoke to a letter, leaving us to navigate and organize the group throughout the day. It was a great opportunity to bond and gain leadership and teamwork sills. With injuries prevailing, X-Ray 1 struggled through the day but a real sense of achievement flooded through the group when we finally reached our destination. The next few days were filled with intense thigh workouts which felt never-ending but “Hope” awaited us after 3 days in the town of Esperanza. This was closely followed by an incredible 06.30am breakfast consisting of chicken burgers, pastries, fresh fruit, bacon and eggs. Today X-Ray 1 are challenged to defeat El Dragon which on a clear day has a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean.
