Pete Experiences Heat, Thirst, Hunger, Exhaustion and Stings!

Date: November 26, 2017
Approximate GPS Location: (-4, -63)

Pete is on the move again. Last reported in Coari, Brazil, he has now updated us that after a small wait for a new GPS, Inreach tracker and a guide, he has already been walking several days. Since this is a dangerous area - British teacher Emma Kelty was brutally murdered here in September - he says that for security purposes he is not giving his location for awhile. In his most recent report this is all we have from him: "Summary[sic] of last few days: Lung, heart & leg bursting climbs. Ear busting thunder storms. Terrifying swims. Heat, thirst, hunger, exhaustion & a multitude of trips falls and stings."
