Hey guys, thanks so much for everything. I honestly had difficulty answering the question about what i liked the most during the trip because i loved everything. Personally, i had one of the best trips one can ever have and almost didn’t want to go back home. Everything went smoothly; Joe, Mugo, and Isaac were absolute rock stars. I would love to get back on that yellow truck again one day 🙂

Once again, many thanks!
