today we are preparing for a grand adventure...
... it all started in June, when my amazing dad turned 50!
he decided that he wanted to revisit the city he was born in... Sao Jose do Rio Preto (practically a sentence). here it the trick: he wanted to WALK there. hm. 400 km, about 300 miles from Itu.
and so he was able to convince one of his brothers, and together they came to persuade us into this insanity.
we are hoping to arrive in SJdoRP next week, maybe Thursday.
here's some numbers revolving the walk:
10 pounds of homemade trail mix
8 gallons of water/day
6 crazy ppl
1 support vehicle
1 hair line fracture (oh, did i forget to mention my dad's shin bone is pretty hurt?!)
0 hotel reservations
it'll be a great story to tell our kids. =)
so if we disappear for the next week, you know why.
keep us in your prayers.
