When I began La Ruta Maya, I totally underestimated the magnitude of this personal challenge. This turned out to be a bitch of a personal assignment.
The total climbing for the trip was 130,116 feet. The total distance for the trip was 2650 km.
It was a phenominally challenging yet, self-satisfying journey knowing my body could accomplish the task. Thanks for your donations to the journey and supporting Barb's work. Tell your friends to send more.
