Hi, looks like we might be together on the Stahlratte to Colombia. We are staying at the hostel in Clayton, came into Panama City today from David. It's a nice 480km ride.
Captain Ludwig informed me to be at San Blas the 24th, tuesday, to load the bike etc. Sound like the road to there is a bit rough, he's talking about crossing through a river and some rocks etc.
Maybe we can ride out there together on Tuesday afternoon? When did they tell you to come out to the boat?

I'll be going to BMW tomorrow (23rd) to get new tires and service parts for my bike. Also need to buy english travel guides for South America.
