It has been my lifelong dream to get into a "Death Roll" with an alligator, "Wrestle" an anaconda, and to "Swim" with the piranhas.  Oh and I need to keep my hungry friends the mosquitoes fed too.  Peru here I come!!  :)

"What the hell was I thinking?!?!"  Actually I wasn't thinking too much when I said 'yes, I'll do it'. This year my life has been about challenges, new beginnings and stepping outside of my box -- this is a perfect way to do all three!

This Amazing Raft Race will definitely be the craziest thing that I have ever done -- and will probably do -- in my entire life.  But, I cannot imagine a better way of exploring the incredible Amazon jungle than with my second family.  I look forward to three full days of searching for incredible wildlife, meeting wonderful people from around the world, and being on the greatest adventure in the world!

Only when I challenge myself to do more than I thought I could, do I truly feel joy!!  Outside of doing several solo backpacking trips, one in Alaska where I actually flagged down a train, this is absolutely the craziest thing I've attempted yet.
