Stompers Boots prides itself on being... The best damn boot shop in the world!SM We do that by not only selling the highest quality boots, but by providing our customers with information to make the best decisions when investing in a new pair of boots.
==Day One: Through the border to Peru==
We dropped off the pavement on the edge of town early that day, anticipating the border and further. After all, we had less than 100 miles to go.
==Day 2: To Chachapoyas, Peru==
The road away from our hotel improved with distance from the border, which is typical, but being under construction we often encountered recently-graded and uncompressed earth, which was very unstable to ride in, our semi-knobby tires leaving tracks and squirming around under us.
==Day 3: Kuelap==
We made a day trip out to the ancient fortress ruins of Kuelap, but first we would run into Andy and Bina, friends of ours from the Stahlratte.
The funny thing about tomorrow is, tomorrow you might be climbing a volcano.
From Quito we arrived in Baños, Ecuador, and the quaint town turned out to be a center for outdoor activity, offering hiking, rafting, paragliding, and all the rest. Nestled into the hills, it was basically Ecuador's version of Colombia's San Gil, except with better nightlife.
