We are slow. Now in Mexico, heading South to Ushuaia

Hello

We are currently in Baja / Ensenada and we are wondering if anyone else is around these parts/ or heading to mainland Mexico in a couple of weeks - then afterwards Guatemala?
We have been on the road for three months and we are doing Alaska to Argentina. We never have an itinerary and just go with the flow sort of thing. The only thing we have in the diary is Colombia for Christmas as we are meeting my brother in law.

We were thinking it would be nice to bump into other bikers to share the journey, offer recommendations, plus there is the safety in numbers things.

Both english, on a GS adventure with full camping gear.
Doing it on a bit of a budget because we want the trip to last.

Get in touch if you are around.

If you don't have a time limit and funds are okay then get slower. You will only regret it.
