Argentina to Columbia to States in April?

I am moving back to the States and will be riding my bike north in April. Anyone going in that direction at the same time?

Hey guys, I'm in Brazil rolling northward to Venezuela where I hope to ship to Florida. Let me know if this is on your route and maybe we could meetup somewhere. Also like to hear what you know about shipping from SA to NA as I don't think it's as easy as coming down. Don't forget to checkout the problems Colombia is having with it's neeighbors right now, might be a tough country to ge in and out of for a while.

Cheers

I will be flying into Santiago on 8th April and then heading over to Mendoza before going north.

What dates and time-scale did you have in mind?

I'm riding north in Brazil now and will be in Venezuela before the end of March, so I'll miss you. Are you crossing the continent from Mendoza to Brazil before heading north?
