I posted a thread about that trip too, but it has since been eaten by the photobucket beast. This time we flew in to San Jose, rented a car and headed for the Nicoya peninsula. After driving through traffic, getting on a ferry and some very pothole ridden dirt roads, we arrived at our destination in Santa Teresa on the Pacific Coast. I would love to say I always travel light but in reality it is almost always the opposite. Along with clothes, travel necessities, camera gear, and two surfboards, I was able to cram in my Fiddleback machete and production kephart. I also rented a 100-400 lens for my Fuji xt2 to try and get some wildlife shots. Although the lens is rather large and getting good shots of moving wildlife in the jungle can be difficult, I was able to get a few decent shots. There were a few birds that just would not cooperate for good lighting opportunities unfortunately. Here is a small sample of the over 1000 pics I took. Since I often had the big lens on the fuji to take pictures of wildlife, some of these pictures are taken with my phone. The production kephart has become my go to knife for a lot of journeys now. I should know by now to bring a sharpener for the kitchen knives when we go on vacation. Since I didn't have anything to sharpen the dull kitchen knives, the kephart far outperformed what was there.
