Hey hows it goin guys? Sorta new here and ive been wanting to vagabond all those places listed in the title for awhile on little to no money, i speak minimal spanish but am learning, im a 23 year old tattoo artist and vegetarian, been down there before but did the whole hostel/chicken bus thing but i had money at the time, now i want to go back and would like someone to go with, im NOT very picky as to what we do as long as i am on the road we can see/do/go to wherever you like.

Im am currently living in Brooklyn NY but will travel to meet up and we can head south together or whatever sort of arrangement you want. Either reply to this post or add me on facebook as that would be the best way to get ahold of me, facebook.com/everymanalion

I have all the time in the world to do this so no rush either! thanks:)

How are they gonna bypass the Darien Gap? There is no road connecting North and South America, just the extremely formidable
Darien Gap in the way. I know there used to be a ferry that ran between Colon Panama and Cartagena Columbia but I heard that
it is no longer in use.

Yeah, I wondered the same thing... Rainbow kids might just sprinkle some majikal fairy dust and sprout wings, though, really. There's still a way that you can take a series of boats, I believe, and it can ultimately be cheaper than flying, if you find the right capitans. But yeah, I would love to see a band of Rainbow chill'ren getting across that thing... :)

I just posted somewhere else on here about a boat ride across. You can get across the Darien working on cargo ships from the Kuna Indian islands. Or pay a 400-500 dollar week long cruise to cartagena. Or just try to get a ride, also very plausible, from Colon Panama. Or pay 40 bucks in total for a series of speedboats from the Kuna islands to Turbo, Colombia. Or pay a plane (easy, no adventure). Anyway, those are my two bits.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
