We were equipped to work at Dos Pilas, but with all of our supplies, the clear springs, and the remoteness of Dos Pilas, the robbers would have been able to hold out there for a long time without being discovered. The police and Gadoy arranged for a covered truck to come and get our group at midnight. We hastily packed our gear and drove under cover of all night to Naranjo near the Belize border.
