    Looking for additional travellers crossing at Eagle Pass or Laredo aiming South. Flexible as to route, would consider central or go over to the Coast and south. I would like to have company for all or some of the way to Belize.

    I drive a modest KLR650, speak a little(minimal) Spanish, have driven all Baja both on and off road, and have been to many areas in Mexico. I have been there 7 or 8 times in the past 15 years including a week in Mexico City and area.

    Would like to enter Mexico around Tuesday 20 Nov.

    Contact MikeMike if you're heading down the east coast. He's an invaluable source for local knowledge.

    I'm heading down to CA through Mexico on my KLR as well, but I doubt I could be at the border by the 20th. I'm thinking of leaving Oregon sometime around then (still on the east coast now) and stopping in Phoenix to see a friend for a bit. Maybe change my tires out there... Do some warm weather riding through the desert. Would love to follow your ride report, get a head's up for what I'm in for :) If your plan changes and you're leaving later, I AM looking for riding buddies as well, at least through Mexico...

    I'm planning on leaving for Central America late Nov., early Dec, and would like to find riding partner(s). I was thinking of going down Baja, and crossing on the ferry.(I'm in So. California).

    PS.
    I'm bringing a tent and bag, but someone wants to split room costs, that would work too....

    I'll be crossing over into baja next week. I won't be in eastern/southern Mexico until roughly mid-December, but if you're continuing on to Belize or further, perhaps we'll meet up along the way. Check out "baja...and beyond" thread for my details.

    Hi,

    I made a facebook page (I know, I know...) so that those of us heading down about the same time and place could coordinate. I'm seeing like 5 or 6 of these threads going at once and it's hard to keep them all straight. Join it here:
