Speaking of fun, the 168 miles we faced today are reportedly the most in one day that we’ll see in this week-long trek, and the terrain was much less strenuous. But still excellent fun. The paved road leaving camp quickly turned to dirt, which began a pattern of steep climbs and sharp descents. After a couple of hours the team stopped in a thick grove of bamboo and were given the first test of the day. “Guess how many stalks of bamboo are in that thicket,” was the question, as the marshall pointed. We’re still not sure, but what we do know is that our guess of 60 was wrong, and only worth 5 points of a possible 20.
