It’s Not Over Yet

We spent another day at the repair shop. Our “mechanic” came up with two used regulators from Barranquilla but both of them were not working. We immediately ordered a brand new one from Bogota, the capital of Colombia. Tomorrow afternoon we’ll hopefully receive the new regulator. Additionally there is still the dynamo which is not working properly. One week is over and Herbie is not reanimated yet. But we hope that we’ll be back on the road very soon and that our ocean carrier will atone for what we’re going through. However we are also very sorry not to be able to post photos with Herbie exploring South America yet.

  1. With all the issues that you have dealing with getting Herbie to South America to continue your travels, it might have been faster and easier to build a boat to portage Herbie across the Darien Gap.

    I continue to read your posts and read about each new day’s surprise to continue your journey.

    Hoping your luck improves.

    • Hey Jorge,
      Thanks for your message! We didn’t contact Rodrigo, but I am sure we’ll get Herbie back on the road very soon. It is just awful how much money, time and nerves we had to spend here in Cartagena.
