1/31/2009 - Tim from Boston Congrats finally getting into and through Colombia! Hi guys, I stumbled onto your website in December and then waited to hear more once the van was shipped from Panama. I have to say, I was a bit concerned ... I'm glad you finally had a good trip through Colombia. My wife is Colombian, so I've been many times and I'm always curious to hear what others say. I travel to other areas of South America, so I'll be looking forward to hearing more about your travels. I might add, I'm also an Airstreamer, so I have a vested interest in details about border crossings, etc.
Keep on rolling, I'm envious!
