Hi: am leaving from Nova Scotia, I tell everybody 1st Aug but if ready earlier will go then, your plans sounds a lot like what I am planning. Will probably stop in Guatemala for a week of spanish lessons on the way through. Want to head down the Pacific side to Ushuaia and back up the Atlantic side as well.

Keep in touch, there's a few people leaving on about the same schedule

Cheers Philip

Hi Growler and Walace......I to will be headed in your direction....have already been in touch with Growler.....since have had a friend join my trip. We will be leaving Sept 1st from Ontario Canada and I expect crossing into Mexico within 5 days. As yet I do not know the easiest or safest crossing. Would like to avoid the Pan Am. Currently considering crossing At Nogales.
Hope to see you on the road.
Bob
