You do realize there's no road between Panama and Colombia - you will need to ship your car/bike by sea...

Just yesterday there was news in the paper of opening the Darien Gap but I don't see it happening too dangerous for Panama in many ways... Lots of protests about doing it - environmental-wise and security-wise...

So plan on putting your vehicle in a container and following it by air...

And also that in many parts of Chile the Panamerican doesn't exist as such but turns into a dirt-track and leaps over into Argentina?? But it sounds like a cool project anyway! Where are you planning on staying during your travels? Hotels? camping?
