Virginia to Panama, May 2014

Hello all,

I am moving to Bocas del Toro, Panama and I am going to proceed my wife by a month or so and ride down. My loose date of departure is no later than May first, but maybe earlier.

It will be a one way trip for me, so I don't expect anyone to make just this ride. Just thought I would put it out there if anyone is going that way.

A bit about me...I am thirty-seven and happily married for 13 years. I am not a huge partiers but can drink a few s and have a good time, think pub not disco.

I love nature and am an avid bird watcher. I really want to see pyramids, and interested in modern architecture and cities much less, but can still appreciate them.

I am a vegetarian but don't care if you are. I will sleep under the stars without concern, but not every, or likely even most nights. Cheap motels and hostels are fine.

I don't have much off road experience but I am not nervous nor am I scared to dump a bike. I want to be a bit adventurous without being stupid.


A bit about my bike... though I ride a Tiger 800 most everyday, I am building and taking a KLR. I am not a bike snob however so if your bike is not as luxurious as a KLR it is ok.

If any of this might coincide with your plans and you are looking for company or help picking a bike up when needed let's talk.

Thanks,
Bryan

Hi Bryan
I am looking to head down that way around that time frame.
I may only go as far as Nicaragua. But when I get there I might just
keep going south depending on whether the ferry from Panama to Columbia
is operating.
Where would you enter Mexico? I'm guessing Matamoros.
I am on the west coast so we would have to hookup further into Mexico.

Well I honestly don't know where I will cross. I am expecting some maps this week to do some planning. I want to cross somewhere relatively easy. As it will be my first border crossing on a bike.

I am also in the mind to work my way to the Pacific once in Mexico and head down 200 and ease back over to Belize as I am interested in the pyramids there and have never been to Belize.

If I can work it I may even leave a week or two before may...if I can get everything sold off and ready here.
