Course Updates - April 28th

Tri-Country left its 72 hour solo Monday morning and began the final phase of its coast-to-coast hike. They then ran the Rio Pacuare from La Cruz to just before Siquirres and camped by the river last night. This morning they rafted to the Siquirres bridge where they switched out the rafts for inflatable kayaks (IKs). They are IK'ing from the bridge to another point to camp on the river, and then Thursday they will finally IK from that point to the beach. That night they will transfer to Puerto Viejo del Sarapiqui. Friday they will have a transition day in Sarapiqui, and Saturday morning they head out on their Nicaragua paddling expedition.

Leadership will be doing their Rescue 3 International Technical Ropes Rescue Operation Level training for the next four days. Yesterday morning they went to the indoor futbol 5 field in Tres Rios. Today to tomorrow they are at the climbing wall in Iztaru, and Thursday is their final exam. Friday they will have a transition day, and Saturday and Sunday they will be doing their lifeguard training at a pool in Tres Rios or San Jose.
