Bolivian rainforest. The missing gear is somewhere in there

Sometime during the evening of September 25th the INMARSAT satellite upload gear along with David Beverly's passport and guitar were taken from the ICE2002 camp. It remains a mystery who took the items and where they went. The Amazom branch of INTERPOL is on the case, in the search for the missing items. Possible leads have been identified and there is a good chance that there will be a recovery.


The field portion of ICE2002 is nearing the end. Despite the loss of upload capabilities the field team continued its scientific data gathering mission and upon their return this data, numerous pictures and a bevy of other content will be integrated into the site for analysis. From September 28-30 the team will take helicopters from Puerto Araona to Cobija and then fly by airplane to Santa Cruz where they will await commercial flights back to USA. Members of ICE2002 will be arriving home during the period of October 3 - 7.


Thanks to the efforts of MAGPLANE Tech Allen Lunsford the primary MAGPLANE passed several Proof-of-Concept tests - full details will be coming next week.
