Central and South American Boating (repeat posting)
(Apologies for the double post. I figure this is more suited for the Trip Planning spot.)
Central and South American winter kayaking road trip. Anyone interested?
I'm brainstorming buying a car in the states, putting the kayak on top, and just driving south. No real plans other than to boat, travel, drive, etc. Should be fun.
I think this type of trip would be more fun with at least 1 other boater, so if anyone is interested feel free to chime in. Likewise, any friends you may know would be sweet.
That being stated, if anyone has any suggestions on must-hit rivers for any of the spots in Central America or South America that would be fantastic, though it's not my first time going down there.
Also, if anyone has done this drive (Cali to Chile or some such) I'm open to any pointers or thoughts. So far talking to a few ppl that did it, I've only had the suggestion to avoid Columbia.
I have lived at the Futaleufu for 4 months a couple of years ago, in Chile, working as a safety kayaker at the end of the season. I would love to get back there on this trip, or to the Rio Baker, but I'm laid back and up for whatever.
