In December of 2000 I did a solo ride from San Antonio, TX to far side of Panama and back. Had a GREAT trip, and envy yours coming up. I was a little more leisurely, at 80 days, but took a lot of side roads and explored. If you have any questions just holler.--Porter

I'm hauling my KLR to McAllen in January from Kansas City for a trip south. I'm sorry, I don't think I want to ride it from here in January. Pifa, when are you leaving? My shove off date is about the 7th.

Roger,
I live in San Angel, Texas. I am going down through nuevo lardo down to oxaca. I'll be going sometime in dec or jan there are so many great places to see that actually planning the trip is useless, however, I will be going down through central and south america to brasil.

Bud,
I'm entering Mexico from Texas, but I will be staying at Puerto Arista in southern Mexico for a few days. It is on the coast in the state of Chiapas. You will have to go close by it. I don't know when I will be there yet, but I will keep in touch after I leave around the 15th of January.

Paulzen,
I hope to be doing a similar trip in Feb. 2003. Are you willing to push back your trip? I can't leave any earler because of work...
I'll be leaving from New Jersey, so we could meet-up early in the trip.
