ColOmbia in early December 2006?

Hi,
I'll be in Panama the first week of December. Anybody want to ride through Columbia with me. Either boat to Carteheneja, or fly to Bogata.
Let me know if you are interested.
Thanks,

Ride through Colombia

We should be in Panama around the same time and are planning on
Shipping our bike to Cartegena, Columbia from Colon, Panama.
Stay in touch by PM's and maybe we can hookup in Panama and ship
a few bikes togather.
Then we will ride to Equador, and can travel together if our routes are
the same.

Panama-columbia

hi,
still a newbie, so i can't pm. you can email me at nickdude1@yahoo.com

i'm in panama city right now. just got in yesterday. anyway, finding a boat from colon to cartehanja is sketchy at best. i've decided to fly my bike into cartehanja or bogota.

thanks,
nick

Nick. Rick here from Puerto Escondido. Sounds like your plans changed a bit. We turned the bikes over to Girag today (8th) to fly to Bogota. We are leaving tomorrow (9th). Thread on shipping info under "Shipping from Panama City to Bogota & Quito in the Trip Transport forum. There was a fellow (L Toby and Daughter) there today that is going back tomorrow to ship to Quito. May see you down there.
Rick

Made it through colombia early

I'm already in Quito. Colombia was a blast. so much beauty in the both the people and the landscape. there is one small section of road between medellin and cali that was a bity scary. we were warned by the military that there was still an ongoing problem with guerillas. so, be safe everybody. ask about the road before riding down it. Colombia is not to be missed, but tread carefully, it is still a police state.

The bit from Cali to Medellin....

Rode that bit today. No hassles, no problems, but *lots* of military & police. Have had enough of those fu@@ing thunderstorms though.

Not been stopped yet (famous last words). They seem to appreciate it if you slow down as soon as you see them, flip up the visor & raise a glove.
