    I don't think these last two groups (the people who got stone with their 4x4 and this pair on the bikes) have been ADVers:dunno

    Hopefully these two California bikers just got on a nasty ayahuasca trip out in the bush of Peru.

    Peru is a very welcomed country , where almost 30 million visitors , all ages, all mean of transportation make a visit every year.

    Beside what the Media have to publish, better to wait for a good outcome.

    Thanks for posting the photo. Just putting it out there into the world where someone might see it.

    We all travel, some further than others, and it's a shame if someone at home is left to worry.

    Does it make a difference if they are inmates here? Bottom line is they were doing what we love--traveling.

    I was referring to the solo guy whom they found dead after he was missing for a while...or was that ecuador????

    from the article:

    The U.S. State Department said that according to their families, Hand and Neal had been traveling from Cusco to Lima, Peru, and were expected to arrive in Lima on Jan. 26.

    ...

    The road b/w Cusco and Lima isn't exactly the boonies. Hearing these stories is bizarre to me after spending a fair amount of time in Cusco and the surrounding area.

    What I fucking HATE about the media:

    "UPDATE: Neal and Hand were recently spotted in a boat on the river in a remote part of Peru, authorities announced Tuesday."

    This comes from a Huggington Post article with the headline "Jamie Neal and Garrett Hand, California Couple, Missing On Peruvian Cycling Trip." The article goes on to allege that travel is dangerous, even though, right at the top, is the update saying that they're safe. Neither smugglers, nor drug dealers, nor gangsters, nor poisonous snakes, nor bandits, nor drunk drivers, nor any of the other horrible dangers...

    wtf.

    The internet is a fucked up place.

    And I wish these two love birds could get lost in peace.
