Matt DeVoe is a trooper.  On the first day of our Costa Rica mission, Matt slipped off a rock while scouting a rapid on the Pozo Azul and fractured three bones in his foot.  He then had to sit around for 3 days in the jungle until the first available flight home.  Today, he sent me a picture of foot post surgery.  Hat’s off to Matt, he never complained about ending his trip early or that he was in pain.  He was just happy to have run the final 35 foot waterfall…with a broken foot.
