WHAT IS AN EXPLORER?
In South American they have a club.
It is called,
"The South Americas Explorers Club."
I never joined and probably never will,
but it is a good thing. I shared a coffee one
time with the manager in Lima, Peru.
I am a Hobo and the dues at that time were
40 dollars. This is a lot of money in Peru.
I could live for 20 nights in a hotel for that.
Too rich for my blood. I be barefoot Hobo.
I stopped into the
"South American Explorers Club." in
Quito, Ecuador just before my trip down the
River Napo to Iquitos, Peru. This trip is not
that common and I was hoping to find some
exploration advice. This was the second
encounter and would have been the time I
may have give them the 40 dollars.
They was short on advice and maps.
This was good. Un-Explored... hehehe
There had been a small military skirmishes
between Ecuador and Peru along this river
and was still considered possibly dangerous.
I had had looked at my large map, and decided that
this was a very good route, and needed opened.
Plus I will do about anything to get away from
the tourist that are always invading my homes.
I made the trip a couple of years ago.
I made a map. Crude and rough. But a map.
I am hoping by now they have made a better map.
But nonetheless I was there and had fun.
I made a map.
The cardinal sin of a backpacker.
In the book and movie "The Beach."
You learn. Do not give them the map.
The will come by the thousands.
It happened to Columbus.
It happened to Marco Polo.
It will happen to the Moon and the stars.
One will go and others will follow.
An Explorer is about being first.
An Explorer does it FIRST
I do understand the attraction of the
club in South America. Everyone wants
to be the first to go this way.
Just another day in Paradise!
PLAN YOUR ESCAPE...
Be a Hobo, and leave your mark.
