Day 101 - CHOICE 1
Caroline's brother Jamie has stepped in adding a twist to events. Being all too aware of his sisters fear of boats, Jamie's offered to fly the Thumb to Columbia to hoist us over the Darien Pass, leaving us with a glimmer of hope to make it to Rio in time for the Final.
Stick to the plan and hitch on a boat over to Columbia. However due to the time this will take (1 week at best) this choice will almost certainly mean missing the World Cup final in Rio... hence the dilemma!
It came down to the toss of a coin.
Up on the roof top, camera rolling...the coin fell heads up. Meaning the flight option!
Both mine and Caroline's immediate reaction didn't like the outcome...it felt wrong.
The toss was ignored. On the 2 previous adventures, due to circumstance beyond my control i was forced to use public transport. Each time it happened it hurt! Before embarking on this final one I made a pact with myself to avoid this happening again at all costs, no matter the reason.
So Stick with that pact I will!
It looks like the Thumb may very well be arriving to empty stadiums after todays turn of events.
