Here is what you need to do: Tell [Nicole] to find two medium-sized rocks, get a string and tie them together (leave some string between them); and hang them from one of the trees, outside.We thought this method worked twice during the day [and drove to the boat twice], but were disappointed repeatedly. To pass the time, Alex made a "delicious" macaroni casserole & Nicole bounced around in a strange way to Primus. What keeps us sane is knowing that tomorrow is another day.

Day 12: After what seemed like a promising start to our day, a large storm moved lightning fast over Snake Cay -- as the rain beat down, Nicole whispered Hail Marys and Alex & Dave thought about how they would never take each other for granted ever again. Ultimately, our decision-making abilities and Alex's boating skills were tested, but we passed with flying colors and earned ourselves gigantic hamburgers. Now it's time to transcribe some videos and cheer for King James as the Cavs try to stave off elimination!

Day 9: Nicole Dautel, joins the Chipojo Team. Nicole is supported by an NSF REU and will be collecting behavioral and ecological data for both A. sagrei and L. carinatus. Both Dave (better known as “Chivo”, due to his Cuban heritage, and/or "El Che" like chiva) and Alejandro are becoming quite the experts on A. sagrei and L. carinatus signaling displays. Their project on thermal biology of A. sagrei is getting off the ground. In other news, they are quite the experts at maneuvering the boat under low tide conditions. El Jefe is passing the baton to Chivo, as the official blogger.
