SGT, Puerto Rico, Mango Hunting

If you venture past the main headquarters of the Bamboo fortress, and beyond the little huts that just poke out of treeline, you'll find yourself following various paths (cut by the adventurer guru Sam Scheer) that lead every which way. Now follow a path down the slope, slip on wet mud, trip over nests of termites, and you'll end up in a gully of Bamboo that tower one hundred feet. Tucked away in one of the 4 monstrous clumps of Bamboo lays the biggest hammock in world, and if your lucky enough, you'll find the master bed that belongs to the master bamboo maker, Joe Scheer himself. 

If you DARE to follow the path even more, you'll climb up a slope, jump over a barb wire and maybe, just maybe, you will have found paradise; an endless amount of fresh mangos sprawled throughout the ground and delicately hanging off the trees waiting to be picked and eaten. Eat one of these mangos and you'll be picking at your teeth forever, enjoying the sweet juices and the stringy pieces of mango stuck in your mouth. Enjoy this mango hunt we went for one afternoon.
