Argentina (Mendoza) to Bolivia and North

Hey all,
I've been in Mendoza, Argentina for the past couple weeks and am about to start heading north again. Bolivia, Peru, etc., on the way back to California.

If you are in the area, I'd love to meet up.

Help!

Hey Ricardo,
how´s it going? Are you still in Lima? I need a big favour, but don´t lose any sleep if you´ve left Lima!
I waited for some parts in Lima for ten days, but they didn´t show up (they were sent approx a month ago from the UK). so I´ve left and I´m now in Ecuador. If you´re in Lima, would you be able to grab them for me and bring them with you?
I know someone else in Lima if you´ve left!

Many thanks in advance,

Rick

Hey All,
I'm in Cuzco and will be leaving for the coast (heading north) tomorrow. I'm planning on skipping Lima (sorry Rick) and have an ultimate goal of getting to Cartegena Columbia for a June 26 boat.

If our paths cross, let me know!

Jason

Hi Jason

Thanks Ricardo,
I'm currently in Pisco (which I do not like at all). Tomorrow I'm hoping to make it to Huaraz.

It looks like Guayaquil could be a good place to stop on my border crossing day, which should be around the 7th.

Hope to see you soon!

I'll be leaving Mancora, Peru tomorrow morning, and crossing into Equador. I'm not sure I'll stop, but due to time constraints want to get into Cali, Columbia in two or three days tops.

Then, I'll take it slower until I get to Cartegena. I'm reserved on the Stahl Ratte for June 25.

Hope to see you guys!

Hi Jason.
I´m currently in Quito, in my way to Cartagena, Colombia.
It will be great if we can meet and cross Colombia together, and maybe I can also take the Stahlratte.
Let me know when are you planning to arrive to Quito, because I can wait for you.
My mail is ricardo.baros@hotmail
Good Luck,
Ricardo

Im currently in Riobamba and will be heading towards columbia today. Wasn't planning to stop in Quito, but could. Or, would you like to meet in Ibarra?

I'll try to check email today when possible.

Hope to meet up.
