just did a quick total up for 11 days riding south bound thru mexico as i know some of you want to now cash figures so you can workout your budgets

so, hotels every night, most thanks to Sjeord Bakkers budget mexico hotel book, and i picked good ones except one night, breakfast, lunch and dinner most days a few toll roads that couldn't be avoided due to wrong turns and also getting away from the texas/ mexico border and trying to get to Campeche before dark and this includes gas and i did about 70/30 magna/ premium mix due to a few bad lots of gas along the way, probably due to the heavy rain in some places getting into their holding tanks

all came out to $428 or about $39 a day - this doesn't include a new tire and two new inner tubes, if i took out the tolls it would drop to $380 or $35 a day, i could have wild camped a few days if the rain wasn't so imminent and i could have had it down to less than $30 a day...so what are you waiting for? get out for ride south bound
