South America

Welcome to Hooch 57! The first stop on our mission was Soto Cano Air Base in Honduras. It was a nice, small base but nothing too exciting to do. We had all planned to only be there one night so it wasn't a big deal, but of course the plane broke! Finally we headed out to Guatemala. 
Once we arrived in Guatemala, we all thought we would be heading home shortly. Wrong again! We had to stay a few extra days while the parts were trucked in from the City about 300 miles away. For most places that would only take 5 hrs, but for Guatemala, it took about 10 hrs. After a few mountain crossings and driving through the night, the truck made it to the ramp. We were all very happy!
During our time off, we tried to enjoy the city of Flores as much as we could. I wanted to ride in the taxi but it was closed by the time I had the chance...maybe next time.
