Crossing into Mexico from US in Sept 2012 and heading South

My husband and I are currently travelling around the USA two up on our Honda Transalp.

We are planning on crossing into Mexico approx mid September 2012 and heading on down to South America. We're looking for some other overlanders to meet up with and travel through some of Mexico and maybe some other parts of Central America.

We've not finalized a route and we have plenty of time so will not be rushing through.

Hi: I'm probably going to cross into Mexico at Eagles Pass the 2nd week of Aug but will be traveling slowly, look for an old (excuse me a more distinguished looking) guy on a dl650 from Nova Scotia. I'm stopping for Spanish lessons in Guate on my way down. Hope to see you on the way.

Cheers Slowphil(Philip)

Growler - we'll keep our eye out for you. We are also planning on taking some Spanish lessons along the way, have you pre-booked or is it something you can just turn up and book a few days before do you know?

Mikeymoto - maybe see you on the road

Elchen2012 - I'll drop you an email with more info. We're just heading into New Mexico and then heading up to Colarado.

Andy1979 - let us know if you do head down into US and decide to head to Mexico around the same time.

Garrydymond - thanks for the invite, we'll drop you a message when we get down towards you, would be great to get some tips

Happy travels

I've taken Spanish lessons before and the best way is just show up and check out the schools in whatever area your going to take them. I'm going to San Pedro on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala for mine I think, I took Spanish in Antigua and really enjoyed it but want something a little more laid back and out in the country this time. I'll no doubt change my mind 15 times before I get there

Cheers Growler with 35 days left till leaving
