Hello everyone, this is JJ and Adam with the Mexico Volcanoes team.  We had a great day of rest yesterday in Puebla, but we’re back to business.  We are currently sitting in Tlachichuca at Dr. Reyes’ facility.  We’re busy organizing gear and getting ready for our 4-wheel drive adventure up to the hut on Orizaba.  We had a good day getting in here, everyone’s rested up and feeling good. The weather is absolutely beautiful and we believe that is going to continue. So knock on wood and cross your fingers, wish the team good luck, but hopefully by tomorrow, we will be on our way down from the summit of Orizaba.  Take care everyone and we will touch base tomorrow hopefully from the summit.
