Brazil...One week away

Well one week away from departure to Brazil! Getting excited about Ecomotion. The packing has begun and I am most focused on the weather right now. Last year they had torrential downpours and the creeks and rivers swelled making them a bit more interesting. I'm hoping the skies don't open up as much as they did last year. As of now the temperatures should be perfect in the low 80's

MondayPartly Cloudy. High: 80° F. / 27° C. Wind light.
Monday NightChance of Rain. Partly Cloudy. Low: 73° F. / 23° C. Wind light. Chance of precipitation 30%.
TuesdayScattered Clouds. High: 87° F. / 31° C. Wind North 6 mph. / 10 km/h.
Tuesday NightChance of Rain. Scattered Clouds. Low: 75° F. / 24° C. Wind NE 6 mph. / 10 km/h. Chance of precipitation 40%.

The two pieces of "special" gear that I have pulled are the packrafts and kayak sails.

A little bit about the weekend, since it was Halloween and all. Did some paddling on Saturday accross the lake and then finished off with a pit stop at the UW football game for a quick appetizer and some beer with D and BMH (with possee). Turned into a beautiful day. Spent Saturday night as a cheerleader at a couple of different fiestas and then ran an altered version of the Fat Ass 50 Loop with AV and got snowed on. Winter is here!

Should I be cheerleading?
