Smile WANTED: Passage around Darien gap

Hello everyone,

I am a hitchhiker planning a trip from the USA to South America. I will be departing in January, 2014 and hope to be in Brazil for carnival. The rub is this big chunk of jungle between Panama and Columbia, the darien gap.

I am looking for a way around the gap to Columbia around the middle of February 2014. If anyone will be cruising that way and could give a backpacker a lift, it would be much appreciated! We can work something out monetarily to cover fuel/food costs. I am also certainly willing to work as a deck hand, though to be honest, I have no experience sailing. That said, it probably doesn't count for much, but I am an eagle scout and know a bit about tying knots and engines. I'm also a former lifeguard and great swimmer. I'm eager to learn the ins and outs of cruising!

Looking forward to your reply,
Keith

Most boys scouts just walk through the Darien gap.

Sometimes you just have to get yourself to an airport .Can be cheaper than unpleasant alternatives.
