11/18/2012 - Jon Manuell

Well we made it to triple digits as a group in one piece. Looking back I cant help but smile reflecting on achievements and trials we have overcome. In the last one hundred days we have seen, traveled, and overall experiences more than most people would in one hundred years. We have spilled blood, poured sweat, and shed tears knowing in the end it will all be worth it. The initial days crawled by, but as the days passed the momentum built, our skills were refined, and our confidence grew; not only as individuals but also as a group. These days turned into weeks, and then into months, We conquered canoeing in Canada, the front country and numerous National Parks we visited did not even see what hit them, and now in Mexico we have made it to our final day of kayaking tomorrow. We have had injuries, illnesses, and setbacks along the way but they were mere obstacles in our path that we got through together. Knowing that seven individuals are there for you is a very powerful feeling. The last one hundred days, I will remember forever. We now have 20 days left and our group has formed, stormed, normed, brief streaks of performs, and now almost time to adjourn so I for one will make the most of these twenty days and hopefully transform.
