Looks like we'll run into each other on the tarmac or piste sooner or later...

Hello all,

I am planning a flexible trip south from Cancun to Costa Rica and would really like to link up with some folks (I'm taking the Yucatan Express ferry from Tampa in Mid-late Dec.). I'm a good mechanic on a KLR 650, traveling cheap.

I'm pretty flexible, but finding hard to keep track of all you that are doing similar trips. It would be great if some would reply/email so we can get a more detailed dialoge going.

Thanks,

Wow, quite a few headed south this winter. I'll be leaving Washington, D.C. early January and probably make Mexico mid January. No itinerary but southern Mexico(Oaxca y Chiapas) is point of interest. Probably no further than Panama as I'll be on a streetbike(SV650). Would be great to join others for any part of the trip.

The place in Puerto Ariste is "Jose's Cabins and Cabinas". I will be there for a few days prior to the first of Febuary. A friend stayed there two years ago on his trip and highly recommends it. He says Jose is the best chef in Mexico.

Just checking in. Is everyone still going to meet their proposed kick off date? Mine is so far, so good. I have an electrical problem with my bike. As soon as it is solved, I'll be good to go. As of now, I leave Kansas City Jan 15th.

We're leaving mid February but this year we are taking the ferry out of Tampa. We rode out of Wisconsin the last two Januarys and have gone through Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize. This year we are trying the ferry to Progresso and then to Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. We'd love to meet up with some riders somewhere along the way. Let me know if you are going to be in the area.

Well, the electrical problem is fixed, but I'm not quite ready due to illness. May be good to go this weekend.

Pifa, When I leave Puerto Ariste, I will be heading to San Pedro at Lago de Atitlan for Spanish lessons. If I miss you both of those places, I will try to contact you here.
