Colombia to Panama

expecting to leave Colombia for Panama sometime around the end of May, is there anybody else wanting to ship around the same time...perhaps someone has already arranged a private boat and needs more people ¿

otherwise what´s the latest on flying out of Bogota.

cheers

Crikey you guys are flying these days! Girag is still the best flying option or maybe the Cartegena yacht club for a boat.

I will be back in Colombia early June if all goes to plan. Maybe see you there!

Take care,

Matt

Hi Goggs

How are you doing Looking forward to seeing you in Alaska in August!

Anyway, to biz. We asked about this option, (other way round) for flying from Panama City to Barranquilla, but were told it was not possible, only had the Bogota option. Only other thing to consider is carrying on to Venezuela and flying out from Caracus to Panama City. We did this (reverse way round). Chris & Erin Ratay also used this option - www.ultimatejourney.com.

Got the new AMH and see you are "featured in" it! Jeff C is over here 26th June and flies to Seattle to meet our support vehicle on 7 July, in case you might like to hook up with him.

If you want contacts in Colombia, see Camillo Delgado www.ruta40.com

Have fun!, J&K

hi out there,

i got a reply from Girag cargo and they confirm they can only offer the service out of Bogota. they are quoting $350 including the $75 DG certificate. i'm not sure if this is a flat rate for bikes or whether it will change according to the weight, i will let you know.

what date are you expecting to be in Anchorage, we are still planning to be there on time, incidents permitting !

hi jeff, hope to see you on the way up.....you can carry our gear !!. will be in touch mate.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
