So, even though it worked out, I guess I wish I knew more about bringing vehicles into Mexico.
That's funny, I had all my bike stuff sorted when I entered MX but forgot to import myself. It made the border crossing at Guatemala fun.
I rode from Phx to Hermosillo the first day of my trip and realized I spoke little to no Spanish. Fun times.
I wish I knew how much I enjoyed traveling so I would've done this 10 years earlier.
