California to Patagonia

Hi everybody...I will be leaving California on my way home in Chile around last week in August.Travelling on a 1980 Yamaha XT 500 so a kind of slow but if anybody needs help with mechanical issues or language just let me know.I am pretty sure we will see each other at some point.
Drive safe and have fun !!

Looks like my departure days are firming up a little more. I should be crossing into MX September 24 and heading south. I doubt I will spend that much time in northern MX, but will head towards the southern beaches before I start slowing down too much.

I can't decide if I am going to go through Copper Canyon again, but if anyone is going to be around there, I might head that way.

I am planning on leaving the USA around October 1, heading for Guatemala to spend a month or so in a Spanish school there. Would be interested in company on the way down. I speak reasonable tourist Spanish now. I live in San Antonio Texas,about 3 hours from a couple different border crossings, if anyone wants a place to stay or pick up any last minute items before crossing into Mexico.

Andy T. Been awhile. Coming back from Guat or going on? Did you see the stuff about my last trip to Baltic/Russia? Not sure about any more "adventure" trips since my age is catching up with me.

Hi Rick,

It has been a long time, and yes, I read your blog on the Baltic trip. I need to get across the pond one of these times. I am happily unemployed this summer, I spent 8 weeks riding the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route on a pedal bike, 2500 miles on gravel roads and 200,000 feet of total climb. I am going to the HU meet in North Carolina next week, then coming back to San Antonio for awhile before going to Guatemala. Planning on coming home around Thanksgiving, so not continuing south this time. Still selling Harleys? I have an XR1200 now, although I'm not riding it to Guatemala.

Hi all
Just catching back up on this thread. We're still planning on heading into Mexico this month, probably from California.
Would be great to meet up with some of you.
We've not finalised a route yet though...still researching

Well, depending on where and when, you might still be a little ahead of me. I am still on track to cross into Mexico in about 2 weeks, but I will be heading down through Chihuahua.

Anyone who makes it to Chile, you have a place to stay the night. I'm 178 km north of Santiago, little cabin overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You have to be a dog lover, there's four of them! (Yes AndyT, Dog and Bruiser are still going strong.)

Email is best, LC at LorraineChittock.com for directions.

See you soon!

Headed into Mexico mid October

Riding from Ontario to cross into Mex through Los Ebanos (gotta ride the ferry !) around the 14th of October. Headed to Nayarit as a base for two months of exploring . Should be headed north around Dec 1 to cross over to ride Baja. Look for a black 99 1100 GS.

Hey guys. I just found this thread thanks to rtwpaul. I will be leaving Oklahoma October 1st and plan to cross somewhere around Brownsville or Reynosa. This is my first trip and sure would like to hook up with someone at least for the border crossing, maybe longer. I also would like to hold up in Antigua for a spanish imersion if anyone has a lead on a school. My plan is to make it ti Lima around Cristmas and from there I have no plans.

this is late in the game so if anyone want to get in touch just text or call my cell. Like I say i'm easy going. If anyone wants to team up to cross the border I would appreciate it.

Dale
