I am very nervous and excited about this trip.  We have a great group of positive paddlers who are really looking forward to the adventure.  Our goals are: 1) to get to the start line, 2) to finish, and 3) to come home without getting sick or injured.  I am confident in each of our team mates.  Watch out for the Healers Red raft.  They may be small, but they are mighty.  We are all looking forward to surprising a few locals.

Most of the scary things I've done in my life have given me the most pleasure and taught me most about myself: migrating to the US for college, marriage to Ross, running my first marathon, getting into a dragon boat, and now this adventure

The Amazon!!  I can hardly believe it!  Ever since I was a kid in L.A. I've been fascinated by the Amazon.  I'd pretend to get lost in its jungles.  (Be careful what you wish!)  This is so awesome, I am humbled and grateful.  It couldn't come at a better time.  It's as if the Divine has my back.... Let's hope so.  May the Divine have all our backs.

My goals are adventure, good times, and survival. I want the adventure of the Amazon, and good times with my friends and fellow paddlers. I want to survive the heat, piranha, snakes, spiders, mosquitoes, sun, injuries and wild parties. Iquitos…prepare for Brian “The Stomach”.
