Mark was only about 3 miles from the coast at 11:00 AM today. As of 5:30 pm, still no evening Spot signal (if he continued down to the beach)...

At 6:25pm Mark sent out a Spot signal from just a few feet different than the 11:06am signal (just above)... He probably needed a rest!

Here again is the link to his Spot Map... click Satellite and zoom in to see where he is/was... http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=...

Now his trip will get interesting. That coastline is rugged, but beautiful. I am surprised he didn't spend any more time in the canyon doing a little exploring. I am sure that if you looked around a little you could find some ancient human habitation places and probably as yet unknown rock art. Will keep an eye on his progress and see what happens.

I'm sure he's recharging his water reserves and will be heading back up canyon to do more exploring.

The latest spot, #16, suggests that he is look for a coastal route going south.

We're meeting up with him on the 19th to give him a ride back. I'm guessing as long as he has food and water he's going to spend part of that time exploring.
The pack raft back is definitely a big part of the trip and there's a reef I spotted on google-earth that I asked him to scout out for me; so he may be getting ready for some sea trials...

The last spot, #15, is from at sea. Spot says "Check OK" so he must be doing fine.

The 19th is 2 and a half weeks from now, seems he is trying to beat feet out of there a little early. Maybe he has other commitments I don't know about. Glad he is making progress. I wonder if he is using the raft he has. H looks to be down near "muertito" beach. There was a little seasonal fish camp/shack there on a sandy beach. One of the few places to easily land north of Candeleros.

Points 15 & 16 were both made this afternoon... I would almost guess a motorboat is involved?

if I was a betting man (I am!) I'd bet he is going to explore the asamblea wash for a couple of few days before continuing south.....

Yeah, he covered 6 miles by water in 3 hours. Rowing a raft at 2 miles an hour in dead water seems incredible, but maybe he rigged up some sails. He was going with the wind.

Oh, to be young again.

If he does he has a lot of paddling to do to get back up there to do any exploring.

Points 11 & 12 were on March 29, when he reached the coast. Point #13 & 14 were March 30, just south of the mouth of Asamblea. Points #15 & 16 were both made on March 31, on the water, way south.

Three days on the same beach... I'm thinking he's taking his time distilling and pumping water so he can make his way up that canyon and bike out. If he was going to pack raft any further along this stretch he could just make water as he goes.

Mark had me stop at 4 stores going down to find some lures, which weren't too big. I believe he bought 3 lures. His regular food should be close to gone by now. He may be trying to get the fishing thing going.
