Hello,

I'll be heading down south late April early May from North Carolina. It would be great to meet some people along the way. My final destination is Brazil.
I looked at your blog and I am impressed at your experience. I'm impressed and extremely intimidated by everyone's experience on this site. I feel overwhelmed to with all the planning and preparation! I just want to get on a bike and go! Hahaha!

Don't worry so much Bmorales,

Bryan,

That is the secret. No worrying allowed. Have a great time. I suggest you don't haul ass for 3 months to get to Brazil in time. No more planning allowed. Drink more . Have more , and meet us somewhere along the way .

Cheers,

--Alex

My Friend

No worries ! If you can connect in Mexico with other riders it will all come together quickly.Pack repack and take less,by the time you get to Panama you could write a book yourself. Get your bike and gear right and get on.No worries.

I'm heading down to Zipolite at the end of the week from SF. Crossing at Mexicali and then hoping to make Mazatlan in a few days and then just follow the coast down.

First trip down south of the border. Done some research and I think I have most of my ducks in a row. Taking a Beemer road bike. Any tips on places to stay or what to visit or any advise in general would be very welcome. And if anyone is going down around then, I would love to ride with someone. My Route/ schedule is entirely flexible.

chinga la cuota

Please keep me up to date on your itinerary, specifically for guatemala and farther south. I'm going to zip through MX on the cuotas (forget the casetas though, those gates don't stop bikes, and the federales don't care.). I've burned up too much time in MX anyway, time for something new.

Anyone in the area now?

Well, the trip is two months underway! I'm currently in Guadalajara and will be for at least a week more. Is anyone in the region, want to meet up, either here in the city or along the road south? I'm interested in visiting Guanajuato, then heading into the Yucatan via Oaxaca, but I'm flexible. Best way to get a hold of me is email: cougra77@yahoo.com

Happy trails everyone!
Sarah
