Off to South America

Hi, I'm entering Mexico on the 26th at Tecate. Heading down the Baja then crossing to Mazatlan and continuing to TDF. Anyone around that want to join up for a bit of a ride let me know.

Yes, when I get to La Paz I will let you know. There is only one ferry company but the price does vary based on if and what type of cabin you want.

Hi Jeff
We are in Panajachel, Guatemala at the moment. We'll be here for a few days before heading into El Salvador, if you pull your finger out you will catch us up. we are in no hurry and would like to hook at some point. If you need more information on our route drop us a line or catch up with the blog.

And I'm a week ahead of one, a week behind the other--in San Miguel de Allende at the moment, sharing space with multitudes of fellow Americans, heading south via the mountains without much coast. We'll all bottleneck in Panama, I suspect.

Hope to see some or all, somewhere down the road. And if there's anyone in my immediate neighborhood (next stop Oaxaca, probably Tuesday evening), send out a signal and I'll buy the first .

Mark

Look at your map of South America, then find the obvious destination at the end of the road.

Markharf, I see you are in san Miguel de Allende. Don't miss the natural hot springs La Gruta and check out the old convent now The National Institute of Fine Arts..... I studied sculpture there for 3 years in the eighties.

Hope you all get to meet up.

tks tom
Tom,

I used Baja Farries. Price was as defined on the website. I got a cabin for the night too. The whole thing was pretty easy. I pulled into La Paz around noon. Went to the ferry office and got my ticket for the departure that night. I did have to do the vehicle import thing too. That was not that bad as the bank was just a few buildings from the ferry office. I've got gps waypoints for the two building if you want them.

Then spent the remainder of the day in La Paz having lunch and a or two.

-Jeff

If you get to San Cristobal during the week of the 16th look me up. I'll be in town for a week or two.
