WOW!! Nightmare in Peru...

This is one camping trip that became a trio's worst nightmare:

Note: I have not seen any account of this story yet on any US news feeds.

Man, that's been a bad experience for those folks. And it's still not over. Not your typical National Geographic type of Peruvians, huh?

Talk about picking the wrong area to camp in I would have to believe that the area in question had to been known as a travel risk, especially the way the entire village came together.

I've done a little hiking overseas (Southeast Asia), but I do my do-diligence in knowing what areas carry travel risks, and the nature of the risk.

Interesting story about how they prepared for the trip: http://www.truckcampermagazine.com/o...nture-americas

First rock thrown I would have hit the horn and drive right through them... at that point it becomes self preservation.

Still, no reports on the US national news? Could it be a fictional story?

Why would this make national news? If true its certainly unfortunate, but I have to imagine around the globe terrible things happen to American tourists frequently and not reported on. It's not like there is any Peruvian gov't conspiracy, world wide drug cartel or terrorist organization involved. It's 3 travelers that where severely beat up and robbed in a remote 3rd world jungle. Be interested to see what travel warnings the State Dept has for Peru...our Gov't generally has a decent handle on where it is and isn't particularly safe to travel.

Unfortunately there are a lot:

http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_p...s/cis_998.html

Travel risk "hot spots" in any country can be somewhat dynamic, so one's degree of awareness has to be a priority when traveling outside the larger populated areas....., at least it was for me during my recent trip to the Philippines.

I'm following the Blog that the story was posted in, and curious to see if in fact the area in question was a restricted travel area and possibly played a role in the unfortunate attack on the trio.

There are so many beautiful places to see here in the good ol' US of A. I think my tires will stay on domestic roads after reading that one! Wow!
