I am trying to figure out what I need and what I can leave behind for my coming extended trip in Mexico, It has been great following your amazing journey.
Will certainly comment of Ruta 40 & Ruta 8 when I get there! Do not think they will be as bad a s these were!

I did not carry a tent until I got back to Ecuador riding south. Did not need one in Mexico as the hotels were very cheap and really no one camps for safety reasons.I did carry a small Sleeping bag with a couple inserts that I did use a few times. I say go as light as you can (but the boyscout in me, has me packed a bit heavy!)
