I hope to update this fairly well with the journey. It should be pretty cool. Rick is going, John is entered, and a buddy of mine from roadracing in WI is entered too. It should be a good group. Few guys still on the fence yet.

Yep, lots of talk on this lately among us. We are thinking about staying down there for a couple weeks and renting a house to stay in.

Don't think I'll need too much help, there will be 2 chicks tagging along to help, plus we have a doctor going as well. It would be nice to have some heckling though. Cool thing is you can run faster than I can bike up some of the mountains. lol

Anybody been scuba diving in Costa Rica? Not Isla de Cocos, but closer to the mainland. I'd love to hit Isla de Cocos for some shark diving, but that is like a week trip in and of itself.

Looking at the Bat Islands right now. Only a two hour boat ride and supposedly have some decent shark sightings and a lot of wildlife.

The mainland I am assuming. Not sure yet as I'm just poking around, but that is fairly close to the mainland compared to Isla de Cocos which is like a 36 hour boat ride or something like that.

That's not as bad as I thought it would be with all your complaining! Lol

Doesn't look like oxygen will be much of a factor. Not getting high enough for that. You should be fine. It's just a few steep climbs! Lol

Interesting writeup about weight and performance. At least they are increasing the 2 pounds per inch optimal weight now a little bit.

If you refuse to lose weight, you better get a lot stronger.
