ANNOUNCING CLEAN DRINK ECUADOR
INTO THE COASTAL RAINFORESTS OF THE ESMERELDAS REGION - NOVEMBER 2018
We are extremely excited to launch our next CLEAN DRINK adventure, and equally thrilled to announce our facilitator for this outing. For this unprecidented journey into one of the most isolated areas of wild Ecuador, we have secured a partnership with our good friends at Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental. The premier motorcycle touring company in South America, this is our chance to help more than 1,000 people in the remote rainforest.
CLEAN DRINK Ecuador will begin in early November (Tentatively 5-15) and span 9 days of challenging motorcycle riding into a region occupied by an ancient people called the Chachi. Given the rough nature of the terrain and the isolation of the villages we hope to reach, this trip will only be open to a limited crew of just 6 people. We have the opportunity to possibly accommodate one team member in a support truck.
Stay tuned for more information as it is made available. The full announcement and invitation to sign up will launch on June 1, 2018. Please note, qualifying experience and riding skills are necessary to join this trip. We will have pricing and availability information available no later than June 1. Our initial target is to bring the price down to $2,500, not including airfare to Quito, Ecuador. You will not want to miss this opportunity as either a supporter, or a member of the LAST MILE TEAM.
Please also note, this project was chosen by Fredom Bike Rental's founder, Court Rand. His passion for doing good deeds for the people of his home country is an inspiration to us all. He selected this region despite its inherent challenges because the people of the Esmereldas region are in a continual state of peril from the threat of waterborne illness. Compounding matters, they have yet to fully recover from the last major earthquake.
Through our fundraising and on the ground efforts, Court is going to lead us to places where we can make a positive impact. This will be a big adventure with surprisingly good accommodations for much of the trip. True to the CLEAN DRINK ethos, it is important you experience the wonders of Ecuador as part of your travels. Do good as you go.

Why Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental? Because they're awesome. In 2014 I traveled with them and was amazed by their love of the country and their commitment to the people of Ecuador. They are also dedicated to doing good as they go. On our Clean Drink Ecuador trip, we will also participate in their continuing Pack for a Purpose campaign. Watch the vid. Fire up your stoke machine.
