Costa Rica TR

The first part of the TR from our little Thanksgiving mission is up on the CKS Squad site. Hopefully, it'll stave off the jonsing, especially since the snow sucks too.

Nice TR! Great pics and cool story.

What is a Tico? Is that slang for costa rican citizens?

Yea, the Costa Ricans refer to themselves as Ticos. I have no idea where the name comes from.

The word tico comes from the diminutive ending that costa ricans add to the end of most words, making everything small. chico is small, chiquitico is even smaller. Ticos do that to a lot of words. Poco becomes poquitico, etc.

Joe, Ferd let me use your old boat down there a couple weeks ago. That thing is getting it done.
