Looks like you will be a few months ahead of me - but please don´t use up all the road :mchappy:

I love the title of your blog by the way.

Have a blast.

Very many thanks to all you folks who have been sending good wishes. I hope the blog turns into something you will find of interest and entertaining.

And - who knows - we may well meet on the road.

You are welcome to stay with us if you come through Mex City. We will put you up, show you around and may even throw in breakfast. All you have to do is the dishes.

Cheers Sara - have a good ride south.

Many thanks Garry. Your hospitality is becoming legend! But I'm probably going to be skirting the east coast, and therefore miss the city and the chance to meet up. That said... who knows...

Manolito - thanks for posting. I'm certainly planning to head your way. I'll send you a post once I have a better idea of a date. Hasta pronto

Many thanks all.
