We met Kandi during the "Route of Balboa Expedition" back in 2013, when we crossed the Darien Gap from Atlantic to Pacific following in the footsteps of the famed conquistador Vasco Núñez de Balboa as he became the first European to lay eyes on the new ocean from atop a mountain peak in the Darien Gap.. Kandi was in charge of filming the expedition with a small handheld camera. We were immediately impressed with Kandi's ability to negotiate the treacherous terrain wearing not much more than some shorts, t-shirt and trailrunners.  Since then Kandi has been with us on several expeditions, and currently leads our Camino Real Trek
