The Refrigerator Raid *True Story Sunday* [09:39]

Even though I was never tested on the machine, I would have a slip of paper saying I could drive it. While I was waiting a soldier came in and said there was an 18 wheeler blocking the road outside. He wanted to know if anybody could move it. I raised my hand and said I could do it. I had never driven an 18 wheeler before.

I successfully exit Nicaragua, but I can't enter Costa Rica without going back into Nicaragua to an ATM. Lots of border crossing fun!
