I just wanted to introduce myself to all the members of the group. My name is Casey, from Boise, Idaho, and I am traveling with two friends, Sam (SLC, UT) and Caitlin (Chicago). We are beginning our adventures this upcoming Saturday and are excited to finally get underway. All the months of planning, reading, and preparing our trusty steeds will finally be put to work! I spent a month in Colombia last April and found it to be a lovely country (hence, my return). I did the backpacker thing staying in hostels, hotels, etc. so this will be a whole new experience. I feel Colombia is quite safe but I know there are areas to avoid. We want to see as much as we can and were curious if anyone had advice on areas to avoid for safety concerns (FARC,ELN, etc)? Appreciate the help and happy riding out there!
