Scott called in to report that they are moving up and trekking along. The trek has been challenging, as expected, with the challenges of the terrain and the jungle, as well as facing some challenges from the local people near the village of Sugapa. They are past the villages now and happy to be pushing on up through the jungle in what Scott has called some “extreme” trekking. They’ve been in the deep jungle for a little bit and had trouble getting a signal on their satellite phones, but they are breaking out of that and should be able to get better signals from here forward.
