Our wagonmasters, Terry and Pat were definitely enjoying the botaneros. This was their first time leading a group on a caravan. We were glad not to be in their shoes. It looked like a lot of work and responsibility to lead the group along the sometimes complicated routes, help troubleshoot mechanical problems, fit us into some very tight campsites, organize our social lives, and of course (for Terry) lead us on our daily birding trips (or should we say marathons?)
We appreciated their efforts.
