For every travel there’s always a beginning a middle and end The beginning you’re just eager to get started Everything is just blowing your mind you see it all and you just can’t wait to see more But you have this feeling that you haven’t gotten started yet, so you keep going and pushing and pushing until you get started We’re now at the middle and the middle is an interesting area because you actually Forgotten about what your routine is like. This is the moment that you realize that That hamster running that 9 to 5 that thing you’ve been doing every day it day-in day-out Just gets forgotten about you know a few weeks You actually completely forget about those routines and those things that you’re supposed to Always, do every single hour every single day every half day There’s something that you’ve not done not seen there’s just beauty lying around every single corner You just kind of like skip through things and all of a sudden one of them Just really catches your eye, or catches someone’s eye, and then it becomes this the object or this fascination of the story Here in the Amazon behind me we have the Iron Tree. This tree is HUGE! A tree like this could be estimated anywhere from about 400 to 500 years in age Possibly even further as ones similar to this have already been dated at over a 1000 years in the area that we’re standing This has been just a fascinating experience. Robbie and Lutz are on their way out It’s a little sad to see them go but I’m really happy that they came out for this whole part it’s just Just awesome to see that we were able to assemble a team for 6 for one of these huge gigantic trips. It takes a lot of trust for you to be able to take someone’s word for it to spend thousands of dollars to To go out to places that you just read or seeing pictures of and never really experienced So I’ve just got my shoes on, he’s got his boots on and Now we’re looking at things like this oh god We were gonna take another path actually that led us to a slightly easier section however the bridge was washed away by the last flood so we had to make do with what we can and And ya know that’s a big story here in the Amazon River could go up a meter down a meter…up a few meters! And you don’t even know what’s swimming in that water, it could be a caiman it could be an anaconda can be a piranha As Damian Marley said we’re on the Road to the Zon the air I should have mention this before, but it is so full-bodied. When you breathe in it’s There is like a heaviness, a flavour there is like I don’t know what else to compare it to but like a full-bodied wine Versus like back home we’re breathing in white wine This is like breathing in a bordeaux All right, so we’re here waiting for our ride We’re just standing still in the jungle here You know pretty much like sitting ducks kind of thing and Fil’s pointed out There’s a very interesting path, or what kind of seems to be like a path Something through there It’s really advised not to go into that path, but given we have some time, let’s go check it out Wow! *laughing* Okay, so it’s a little wet you probably should have boots if ya do one of these Alright, well that’s about as far as we can go We are right up in here and as you can see There’s not a lot you can do. Let this be a lesson to you folks at home, you go into the jungle you need boots Which I don’t have and you definitely… Oh something rubbed up against me is burning You’re definitely going to need some sort of like a Machete or a saw or something like that so when you go into the jungle be more prepared than I am Spider-Man! Spider-Man! Does whatever a spider can! Slings a web, any size, catches thieves, just like flies lookout! Here comes a Spider-Man! Why isn’t he eating this fly though? I got a fly around me and my homeboy the T-Man ain’t doing nothing. He wants to eat you that’s why. Oh little cutie, I’m going to pet him Rel, you know I gotta pet him Ohhhhhhhhh Ohhhhhhhhh I pet tarantula You know some people have a pet tarantula, you pet tarantulas. Look he doesn’t mind if I touch his leg Seems to be okay with that You know I think I may have abused this tarantula. It seems a little scared Alright T-Man. I’m gonna let you go I’m going let you go be free if you come back to me you’ll be mine This is a good stick here It’s a good hangout spot I don’t know how many more of these lovely guys were gonna see I just know he’ll be better here than he will be at home. Don’t worry He’s got the whole rainforest to roam What are we gonna name him? ” I just can’t” We gotta give him a name Mr. T
