Will anyone be down in South America this coming (north hemisphere) winter? I am planning a trip to Colombia, where I will be for a few months at least, the length of the 3 month visa, maybe get an extension depends on how things go. Then I’m thinking of either going south to visit friends, or going north to uncharted territory (for me), and work back north through central America. I am planning to take my Alpacka, and I will be getting a new feather craft to shake down, that way, I can recruit a willing partner no matter what. Get in touch with me between now and Nov. and maybe we can meet up for a paddle along the way. Aloha!
