    The ride sounds nice, but I would be more interested if you dumped the hotels, booze and whores.

    Wull, I just plunked down airfare to and from the big island for a couple of weeks of biking and walking on red stuff and jungle crawling. That'll do me for this year.

    pigboy and I and others have been batting around the idea of doing another expedition next year and have mentioned SA as a possible idea. Active lava flows would be a major attractor, but are not a requirement. Your tour sounds interesting, and pricey.

    It'd sound even more interesting if more monkeys chimed in...

    Actually, for the level of accomodations, culinary elements, guides, admission fees, transportation, and security, my tours are easily $1,000-2,000 LESS than any other company, IMO.

    Price out an eight day tour with Backroads or Western Spirit, who don't even take you on the choice singletrack! (in the SV)

    No insult intended whatsoever. Your tour is obviously set up to be first class, and irrespective of price I would choose it over any midwestern tour.

    I just happen to run with a crew that is more inclined to rough it. Good luck this year!

    Oh man, every time you post this up, it's soooo tempting.
    I guess it's been about 6 years since I've been, didn't have the bike though. Been wanting to get back ever since. Might spend some time up in the Canadian wilderness this summer though, when were you thinking of making the trip down south?

    Loves me some pisco sours, got some pisco here, but it's not the same...

    Noah, you shoulda come on that trip...

    Hey, if you want to ride more trails in Cusco send me a message. We are running a tour to race the Megavalanche and ride other amazing trails like the Lares DH. We can ride also after the race.

    See you in the Megavalanche!

    We are real DH/FR riders!
