How Do I Manage Feeling Vulnerable Weak When Sick?
Great video. Thanks for the response! If I find myself a little ill in the future while camped somewhere, I'll probably read a favorite, easy book. Maybe also I'll call or IM friends. And of course, if I'm just lonely but otherwise physically OK, I'll have more options, such as walking or hobbies.
Do you know if the Darian Gap is still as dangerous as it used to be? Can a traveler go by land across panama canal? I always wondered why this is difficult.
I have no first hand knowledge of the Darien Gap, as best I understand, the Darien gap is full of swampy mangroves, and often there is no road, but again, I do not know. I met people who have made the trip, and they often used canoes. There is also smugglers in this area. You can get across the Panama canal, probably easily at the locks. Yet, most of it is a lake, so there are boats, and ways to do this, I do not see the canal as difficult to cross. I did a trip on the canal, and went the whole distance by boat as a person helping with ropes.

Thanks for replying,when you were in Croatia there were problems emailing,replying,ect.
I always had the dream of bicycling down all the way to South America .....hence the question about the darian gap. Why by now would they not just have a road?
This video is good....my last road trip was supposed to end up in Costa Rica(all by car/truck) through Lousianna and the Gulf coast of Texas (by myself,raised a lot of eyebrows by my family) there were days of anxiety that were very uncomfortable for sure.Made it to the border of Mexico and that really pisses me off that I didn't accomplish the journey.
