“I’m back from another one of my excellent adventures, this time to Peru . . .following the Inca Trail from Cusco to Machu Picchu. We hiked up Wyna Picchu one morning, steep and nasty at some points . . . My strength and recovery training served me well. My first assent into Machu Picchu from Agua Caliente was challenging. The tour organizer only allowed three of us to make the climb taking the rest of the group up by bus. I was amazed not to be sore at all the next day, fully recovered. It was a good thing because a small group of us climbed Wyna Picchu the next morning before breakfast. Never throughout the whole trip did I feel exhausted or run down.
So next up for me is Aspen, then I’ll dive the Galapagos for seven days off the Lamer Law, followed by several days in the Peruvian rainforest at the mouth of the Amazon River. There is a chance I may go to Africa late next year. And I’m working with an expedition organizer to dive the Antarctic in 2009. Diving the Antarctic is a long time dream of mine. I’ve dived with the Antarctic humpback whales in Tonga in the dead of their winter. This would be a chance to catch them on the other end of their migration path, the Antarctic in midsummer. I would like to thank Cenegenics for your continued support helping me achieve my dreams.”
