The future is now...
Sometime last year, before we even boarded the plane for Costa Rica, the idea of an Ecuador trip was hatched. It was actually the product of a discussion Dave (whizzerwheel)* had had with a customer of his that had lived there for several years. Why not? We've traveled to places for lesser reasons. Besides, it fits within the very loosely laid out plan of 'Central and South America by motorcycle – one piece at a time. If you don't have a huge chunk of time to take to do it all at once, you have to adapt.
There are some advantages to doing it this way - we're not just riding through these countries. We're hitting alot of the nooks and crannies off the beaten path. Or at least that's what we set out to do.
As stated in the disclaimer: we'll see what develops. Stole that line from Dave, btw.
*Maybe we can lure Dave in early and get him to offer some firsthand insight to the discussion leading up to our choice of destinations - otr anything, for that matter.
