I received a text message from JJ. They had some trouble with the starter motor which took most of the day to rectify. They are now on the Guatemalan border and plan to cross tomorrow.
Hopefully they wont have too much trouble with customs there. Once they get to the Honduran border it should be pretty smooth sailing. The group we are working with there, COPINH, managed to get the import papers signed by the Honduran Finance Minister himself.
