Sent you another pm with a master route out of Medellin down towards Manizales that I know you'll like once you finally get out of town.
Can't thank you enough for another route TM! I'm really not sure that I can pull that one off. I need to get the hell out of Colombia. It's really fun.....but it might kill me if I stay any longer.

When you guys get back through Portland, hit me up and the first round's on me.
I was much luckier than you Zach. I read all about your mishap right before I left on this trip. I feel like it is almost about a 30% chance of getting hit on this trip with all the ride reports that i have read. I promised myself to be super cautious so that there wouldn't be any early ending. There is only so much you can control.

Should be back mid june or so. I'd love to drink to beer with you and maybe Bryce as well.

Take care dude!

Did you hear the "story" about el peno why there is "GI" written there? So Guatape's habitant wanted to write the name on the city on the rock to officialize that the rocks belongs to the city and not the other nearby, but it was so dangerous to write it and so many people died doing so, they abandoned leaving the G and the not finished U. Now the rock is supposed to be haunted by the dead guys ;)
that is an interesting tidbit. I appreciate you sharing that because I was thinking about the "GI" the whole time I was riding up to the rock and couldn't think of what the heck it could me.

I certainly did. I think the track from Grenada back to Guatepe was the best part. I find it quite strange that you and Throttlemeister were able to quickly dig up the exact same photo.

So this last 5 or so days have been a ridiculous party. I can't even really sort out the days but I went to a brewery, met some chicks for a game of quarters, went to a soccer game, spent a whole day watching movies, managed a valve check, took lots of inapproprate photos doing inappropriate things, and now I'm about to go back out on the town. My buddy needs to get his ass on a plane on Wednesday so I can get back on the road.

Here is the view from my balcony.



and at night:

This here is $1 Million Colombian pesos. I thought it was cool...













This explains most things:















Empanadas!

When will you get there.

I showed this report to my spanish class. They wanted to know when you plan to get to TDF? Will it be freezing cold when you get there? very much enjoying the report.

You guys ROCK! Been reading the whole report while I look out at the snow and pretend I'm with on the ride. Thanks for the new screen saver shot too!

Inappropriate is not shown. I do have to return to a society where certain activities are heavily frowned upon and can be held against you in some instances that may adversely affect the quality of your life.

Bait = H&B

Couldn't help but smile when i read this. At least maybe it will encourage them to better their Spanish skills.....then you could probably party even harder.

Hate to burst your bubble but I do not have intentions to go to the tip. My final destination will be Buenos Aires. I would have loved to have gone all the way but my departure date was not early enough. I'm sure there are guys that have done it this late in the year but I can imagine it is rather miserable in the height of winter down there. I'm going to be freezing my ass off when temps dip below 60 degrees these days. Gotta get acclimated
