I am forever threatening to be on my way to Colombia (via Venezuela, Guyana, etc.), but my bike has apparently arrived at that age when stuff breaks constantly. This has been slowing me down--a day or two of riding followed by three or four waiting for parts. Not fun.

Nonetheless, I'm hitting the road tomorrow and hoping to be in Colombia within a couple of weeks. I'm reserved on the Stahlratte on June 25, so if I'm slower than that you might was well write me off for the duration.

I'll know more, day by day.

Hey Guys,
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 also reserved on the Stahl Ratte for June 25.

Hope to see you guys!

Jason

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
