February 18, 2017

Here we go again, back to "Colon", all checked out and on the road by 7:00 am. Arriving at the container terminal just before 8:00 am, we should get the process rolling right away. After about an hour we are directed to another office on the facility, more paperwork, and more waiting. Then we are advised of the extra " Port Fees" we must pay. After paying that hefty bill, sure wish the shipping broker would have told us first, as this was an expensive surprise. We waited to be taken in groups to the container. Finally unloading the bikes then following the dock hand to the customs office to get clearance. Around 1:00 pm we were on our way, not bad, only five hours today. Heading back towards Panama City, we stopped for lunch and said our farewells to Tim and headed towards "Costa Rica". Driving well into the night we put our heads to rest in the town of "David", and will be close to the border for an early morning crossing to "Costa Rica". Al Nino
