It was a beautiful morning and it actually got hot and muggy before lunch. We took the “B” part of sector 4. All 3 teams went in and attacked this sector today. In the past a single team has said they would take it on but it is such a moral killer when you have been in there for 3 days and you still aren’t done. The area is full of verbesina (dead and woody), a tree bush I know of as Autograph tree (big round firm leaves), Naupaka, and wedge tailed shearwater burrow. This is not a fun combination. You end up crawling under and over and out of all this stuff. I pretend to be a linebacker and just push my way through the verbesina when I can and pray I don’t go into a burrow in the process. I went into one burrow half way up my thigh today. For a moment I was unsure I would be able to get out. It’s quite an odd feeling.
We have Bingo for money tonight and a toast at midnight. We will be the last to say goodbye to 2013 and hello 2014. So Happy New Year to you all.
