Cancun is a long way from here....
Another guy and I are planning on leaving Belligham, Washington for TDF around October 1st. Should be in Mexico by the 3rd or 4th, but then we'll start to slow down a bit and smell the frioles.
He rides an 1150GS and I have a 650GS. I plan on hitting Usuhaia for Christmas and then heading north thru Chile to Santiago. My tentative plan is to be back home by mid January.
Have you got a route planned out? How many of you at this time? What is your "riding style"? Go far and fast and rest up in a four start? Go off road and see what's over there and tent at night? Stop at every interesting Cantina and sample the local favorites?
