Have you ever been the first to discover something? Seen something that few if any people have ever seen? Felt that tremendous burst of exhilaration as you realized you were part of something that has never been done before? Finished first in a big race, or won a championship of some sort? I had that kind of experience this summer. It happened on June 10, and I was in a pre-montane rainforest in Tinamaste, Costa Rica.
