ENTRY THREE (June 8, 2004) "RED TAPE "

We are taking care of last minute red tape documentation issues concerning our Peruvian expedition members. We have finally bought all our supplies, including "costales" (the big tough sacks into which we stuff supplies that will go on the backs of pack horses), rubber sandles for Goyo, coca leaves, blankets, cooking pots, etc. We have changed the strategy to a more direct plan that
will bring us more directly into the primary exploration zone.
We are hoping that the helicopter will arrive in Cusco this afternoon, and then we´ll be off.
