Talking Louisiana now, Texas soon then headed to Mexico

My friend(aussie) and I(Irish) are on the road about a week now. Just outside New Orleans, camped at a state park last night-free wifi in the state park!

We're headed for mexico but not in a huge rush, prob within 10 days/ 2 weeks.

Anyone have any suggestions for nice riding? anyone wanna meet up for a / tag along for a day? meet up further down the line?

We're hoping to get to Panama in the next while, then maybe head into South America - we'll see how the bank balance is goin

Few hours out of Texas, headed to Panama

I'm a few hours outside of Texas (in OK) right now and headed to Panama (and beyond) via a western route. Maybe our paths will cross?

Thumbs up

cool ride and very similar to one I have planned, although I wanna go through Baja and boat acrossed then come back up on the gulf side fire the Myan Ruins etc. But I would love to know how you do on this, as Panama is the closest end point, and argentina is the dream end point. hehe. I did find on this site some FANTASTIC info on what border crossings to use or avoide from mexico south. Its worth a read man. Seemed to save riders alot of cash and time and hassle. If you are too busy to surf, let me know, I can hunt it down again and link to you. Have a great ride and be safe!
