|Getting started in the Cloud Forest at 3,000m altitude.|
|The first obstacle on stage 1, 12km in.|
|Rise and shine: time to take on stage 2.|
|The first section of jungle after the Cloud Forest - hot and humid.|
|There's water everywhere in the jungle and 70 river crossings in the race.|
|Wet feet from the start on Stage 3.|
|It was awesome to run with Xavi for this stage.|
|The Amazon Jungle!|
|Stage 4 was deep in the jungle and tough going all day.|
|More river crossings with Xavi and Tony trying to cool themselves down.|
|An early start for the 92km stage 5 (which was shortened due to flooding).|
|Tricky footing after another river crossing,|
|Beautiful, wet and humid.|
|I was feeling the distance at the end of stage 5.|
|Happy at the finish in Pillcopata with Xavi (and Neus).|
Awesomeness abounds! Congrats again, D!
What backpack did you use? Im trying to figure out if I should stick with my trusty Olmo 20+4 pack or change things up a bit for the sahara race.
Thank you! I used an old Raidlight Olmo 20l pack. I really like the pack for its simplicity and durability. A great pack for the desert or jungle.
If you're looking for some other options I have a few different backpack reviews on the following page:

Hi Daniel, thanks for sharing all your gear info, I have a light sleeping bag but would not be able to fit it in a ziploc bag! What make is the sleeping bag?
It's a pleasure.
The sleeping bad is from phdesigns.co.uk and is the minim ultra version. It's a great bag, but very simple and I use it only for racing (no zips and light weight mean it's not so perfect for camping).
All the best
