looking for a partner bolivia october 2012

I want to ride the South lipez (Bolivia) in half october 2012, and i am looking for a partner to make the ride from Uyuni to Laguna Colorada near south border of bolivia and chile.
It is an hard trip at 4800 meters and better to ride with other biker.
Contact me if you have the same project.
Alain

It's a good possibility I'll be in the area as well but at the later part of October, post again in October or drop me a line.

Hope to see you Philip

I'm in Bolivia now, headed to Uyuni and the lagunas route in the next few weeks. Anyone else nearby interested in teaming up for some exploration off the tourist route? I also hear tell of a 5900m pass it would be fun to try...

I was going to say that all of you are way too far behind me, but I've really been enjoying Sucre so I have no clue how much longer I will be here.

Anyone know how much longer the Salar is likely to stay dry? I may head out there for a few days then return to Sucre before I do the Lagunas route to Chile....

I'm heading your way on a KLR also. If you don't make the ride until November I'll be in Bolivia. Right now I'm in Colombia.

Hi folks:

I'm planning on arriving in Bolivia sometime early November. I would *love* a partner for this part of the trip; probably the most challenging I'll have faced on my ol' V-Strom.

david AT davidparkinson DOT com
