The plan is either to ship there, then ride from Panama back to the states, or vice versa and ship the bike back. From the quotes I got off Wallenius Wilhelmsen, it looks like about... $500 from Savannah, GA to Manzanillo, Panama, and $650 if I send it back. So, since $$$ is a factor, I'll probably ship it first... although that means one month less of riding practice... and the bike'll have sat for a month before the trip... we'll see. But yeah, big trip back, hoping to hit Managua and Mexico City to visit friends and surf/snorkel/dance as much as I can otherwise.
Wanna come? Thanks for the tip.
