    From another Panama/Columbia thread...


    There's a semi-legit-looking website!

    http://www.ferryxpress.net

    $99 for a seat, +$180 for a motorcycle. $155 for an interior cabin (per person). Looks like a ~cruise ship.

    How about if nonexistent ferrys Don't get listed.

    If I was a more devious shiester, I would set up a fake company in a country that promotes anonymous corporations. Then I would take deposits for services that I'd never do. Later, I'd go out of business. A year or two later, I'd fuck over the same idiots.

    Bump for new riders. There's old info here and it's easy to build on it.

    Earlier I tried to quote AA Milne. John (aka Throttlemeister) is surely going to be reading all the AA Milne very soon. And he'll like the part about going through the door marked "Wayin" and then lingering until you get to see the bear. The prize for lingering is a tie between Crashmaster and Throttlemeister. Those two FF's take Forever. Throttlemeister started riding Mexico about ten years ago, and he's still not gotten past Venezuela. Crashmaster's epic "No Fumar Espanol" took about 25 years and he went through about seven bikes, two HiLux 4x4's, and a three-wheel'd ATV. But none of these guys can match up with Cruthas. If you want the real dope, find him. Cruthas. That FF can do adventure.

    The pacific is always smoother between Panama and Colombia. I don't know why. But I do know that Blaboa looked at it and was so amazed at how gentle it was that he named it Pacific.

    Is there an up to date list of this? I see the ferry service lasted all of a trip or 3 until it was once again rendered inoperable. Steelrat has some dates on their website, otherwise, what's one to do, just roll into Puerto Bello and figure out if one would take on two bikes?

    "Sorry. moto shipping is only available from Panama. The Colombian port authorities do not allow boats to leave with motos. Shipping in container seems to be the only alternative we are aware of."

    I don't know about your teacher or your memory :scratch, but if he told you something different he was definitely wrong !

    Christopher Columbus (/kəˈlʌmbəs/; Italian: Cristoforo Colombo; Spanish: Cristóbal Colón; Portuguese: Cristóvão Colombo; between 31 October 1450 and 30 October 1451 in Genoa – 20 May 1506 in Valladolid) was an Italianexplorer, navigator, colonizer and citizen of the Republic of Genoa.

    How they went from Cistoforo Colombo to Cristóbal Colón...no idea .
