It is time to start packing! Sunscreen, clothes, bug spray, and more sunscreen….The good news is the high in Honduras is currently 90 degrees!


To prepare for our upcoming trip, our group worked with the UWO Xpedition’s team for some team building exercising. We learned more about each others leadership skills, how to work as a team, and what it will take for us to have a successful trip. We even got to do some rock climbing!


Would you like to meet our awesome group? We may come from different backgrounds and study very different things, but we each bring skills and experience that will help our trip be a success. We asked them a few questions to find out a little bit more about them and about some thoughts about our trip.
