Mmmm wish I could drop the real job for a few months and head over... would be a really good job i am sure! So many of us here that just build trails in our own time... actually getting paid for it would be great!!

As an aside, I know that Gravity (Bolivia and now Peru) are always looking for more workers too. You could fly over, dig for a few months and then hook up some mountain bike guiding work with them...

Awesome. Just had a look at the info and i´m jealous as hell of anyone who gets to do this. We spent a couple of months cycle touring around this area at the end of last year and it was fucking amazing.
To anyone who is vaguely considering this idea, stop thinking, just do it.
