Today’s episode was originally, Episode-185- Survival Lessons from the Aguan River Valley and was first broadcast on April 22nd, 2009.
Today we continue with our week of vintage shows. This show chronicles 6 months I spent on deployment to one of the most remote parts of Honduras. I was part of team building roads in this third world nation. This time changed my life in many ways, also as I was 19 at this time I did a lot of growing up as a man in this place.
At the time I simply wanted this tour to be over, today looking back it was a great blessing and turning point in my life. Later it would lead me to my decision after finishing my service to hike about a third of the Appalachian Trail before moving to Texas.
The following are the original show notes from this episode.
In 1991-1992 at the age of 19 I took part in something called “Operation Furetes Caminos” as part of a detachment to the 536th Combat Engineers. From Dec 91 – June of 92 we worked to carve 10 miles of road into the Honduran interior in one of the harshest environments in the world. While there I learned a lot about life, survival and I learned how that which seems desolate and harsh can show you some of the most beautiful things the world has to offer.
Join me today on another time travel event back to 1992 as we recall together what the real power of man is all about. I will tell you lessons I learned and acted on at 19 that I could not articulate or even understand until more then a decade later. Today’ show notes are brief, just tune in the story speaks for itself.
