QUEST FOR PAITITI FIELD JOURNAL :::
ENTRY THREE (June 8, 2004) "RED
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.
