Casey Eats Kamikaze Bugs

Date: March 27, 2018
Approximate GPS Location: (6.11°S, 69.52°W)

Now back in the jungle after a debilitating fever and after losing all hope to find a walking partner, Casey has re-united with highly adept ex-walking partner, Everaldo. They are between Rio Jurua and Rio Jutai in deep rain forest and will continue to walk and swim through it until at least mid-April. Casey reports varied terrain, multiple river crossings and heat. He has spied on hawk wasps, spider monkeys and tapiers. His cuisine has consisted of heart of palm, fish, farina and kamikaze bugs!
