Sorry for the lack of posts on my blog for the first part of the year….I have been posting more internal stuff lately…stuff I am sure that you would rather not read…Struggles, hopes, hurts blah blah blah…its been an interesting year thus far.
All that said, I am in Brazil!
I set out a few months ago to raise support for this and another trip and after I made the announcement of going, both seemed to fizzle out due to other situations. But, right at the last minute (of course) Money had come in and I was able to buy a plane ticket to go to Porto Velho, Brazil. Sunday afternoon last week a spark of hope happened in the form of a check…and then it snowballed from there. Thank you to all of the people who either wanted to see me gone or believe in what I get to do down here…
What is it that I am doing? Well, first off…3 years ago I went to Brazil for the first time to build a Ropes Course…and the second time I am here to do the same thing…Jeff and have have been here prepping for the rest of the team to get here so I can get up in the air to start building!
So far its been a great time! I have been here only a few days and have been to the BBQ, invintoried the gear for 2 Challenge Courses to be built and gotten lost in the Jungle…(monkeys, snakes, bugs…haha…all good stuff)
How long am I going to be here? 2 months is the plan…but…this is a place I could come back to…very beautiful, rainy, humid, I can work almost naked! (I am the white guy) Good times…
Anyway, thought I would drop a note and let you know whats going on.
