We bought my bus ticket provided through the UTMB website; all seemed good to go. / / PLAN YOUR CREW TRANSPORT & PACK TWO BAGS / / I printed it out before we left the states and had everything ready to go. It happened to be raining the entire time we were there so basically once we had checked in and got her race packet we went ....
