Pssst - wanna go to the Amazon?

Several years ago, I put together a kayak/riverboat trip to the Amazon. The report is here.

One of the guys on this trip is putting together another one for July. It really is a great place to visit but it can be seen from the comfort of a riverboat or a kayak with someone who can point out the dangers. With a guide and knowledgeable people, it's reasonably safe.

Here's an article I wrote that was published by our local paper. Link

If you're interested, here's the basics - the riverboat portion starts on June 29th. You'd probably want to arrive in Manaus on June 27th and take a day to tour the city. You can fly back on July 5th or 6th.

The cost is around $2300 I believe which covers the cost of the boat/meals on the boat/etc. You'd need to add airfare, a cheap hotel for a night or two and meals while in Manaus.

Let me know via PM if you're interested and I can put you in touch with the organizer. I'm going - it'll be a blast.
